Happy Valentines Mouse

One can never go wrong with love. Especially if you´re a mouse in polymer clay with a secret message hidden in a heart.

Valentines day came to Norway some years ago. Mainly because commercial interests wanted to fill their pockets with more of our money.

Most people don´t find the day special. But some are celebrating with roses, candy and gifts.

Despite the commercial thing I think love should be celebrated whenever we can. Commercial or not. We can´t import a culture or tradition but we can celebrate love.

So I did by making a mouse with a hollow heart on it´s tail. Inside there´s a message as you can see on the photos. I enjoyed making it - it´s always fun when an idea falls into my head.

So I wish you a happy Valentines Day - if you´re not celebrating in your country you can always find someone who needs some extra attention.

Or you can give love to your self.

Thankfully love is free of costs - and will always be. In fact if you have love in your life you´re rich.


Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place

  1. Lone, I loved what you made! It's beautiful! And, I agree, you don't need a special day, to tell someone you love them! It should be everyday ;o)

  2. Am not a fan of mice but when they come bearing secret messages hidden inside very cute hearts I may just change my mind. I love your art. I did check on the link to the video on Stella's win for the Eurovision and I understand there is quite a furore over that. Reminds me of the controversy over Obama coz his dad was from Kenya.
    Thanks for following my blog, am happy to follow you too. Hugs from Kenya.

    Your mice are adorable, well made, gorgeous colors, and such a clever idea, too! No wonder you have been published with these.
