Coming Soon: Cirque de Souris

Shhh!!! This is top secret!  The Cirque de Souris (as in Circus of Mice) is in town!  They have been secretly practicing, as you can see, on top of my dining table.  Unfortunately, all I have is this one picture.  I do recognize Bailey the Dumbo Mouse, but who is this other mystery mouse?  I guess we’ll find out on the grand opening of Cirque de Souris!   Check your nearest ticket outlets for the performance dates.

Happy Birthday Life in a Bell Jar!

It’s my blog’s first birthday!  Hooray!  It has been a great year!  So far I’ve made a total of 12 themed ball jars, more than a dozen mice, and a handful of gnomes.  Not bad for a total newbie!  To be honest, before 2011, I didn’t even know how to make the mice and gnomes.  Now I love the craft so much, I can’t think of letting a week pass by without needle felting.

What’s in store for 2012?  More fun themes, quirky mice and gnomes, and The Life in a Bell Jar Mice & Gnomes Adoption Agency!

By the way, I like you to meet Bailey, a dumbo mouse.  Catch his balancing act soon!
