even more lovely bargains!

Firstly I want to say a huge and heartfelt 'thank you' to those who posted such thoughtful and wise comments yesterday... I have heard you loud and clearly! I know what I have to do... the words kept repeating themselves... 'follow your heart'...

And my heart is telling me that it is tired of designing to the lowest common denominator. It wants to think bigger and more beautiful. I simply can't make things as lovely as I'd like them to be at a price that will appeal to the mass market.

And so... I am having a total, utter, complete and entire STOCK CLEARANCE! I kept a few things back from the sale last month, thinking they might 'do' for the London Lady... but I have decided on a clean sweep with a new broom. Out with the old Mouse, in with the new, whatever that might be...

So this is your very last chance to grab a bargain - and these are really good bargains - post and packing is FREE to anywhere in the world so the prices you see are the prices you pay.

We have lovely, delicate wire and paper heart decorations...

...which are only £4.50 including postage to anywhere in the world...

And there are a very limited number of the brown gingham check Market Bags...

...which come neatly packed up in their own little pouch and are only £5.50 including postage and packing.

Last but not least there is a Pincushion Bonanza! I have several pincushions left over in lots of different designs and colours so it's a Lucky Dip - you choose the shape and colour and for only £3 including postage you get a surprise design.

Please do have a look and maybe you will be able to tick off a few more presents on your Christmas list... this is your last chance to own one of these Mouse originals! Thank you all.

Well, I for one cannot resist a bargain. I have been so pleased with my Mouse bags; I have been watching your shop for more goodies. You can rest assured that the friends I bought them for will appreciate your craftsmanship and attention to detail.

I hope that you find the right path and follow your heart. Trying to make a living from art is always a struggle, do you go with images that you know will be commercially acceptable or try to do work which truly inspires? I wish I knew the answer, I certainly haven't found it yet!

I agree with acorn moon, making a living from art is difficult and I hope you are happy in what ever you decide to do.
I too have bought some lovely things from your shop and I know the people I bought them for will love them as much as I do!
Love

Good luck Sue, following your heart is definitely the way to go, otherwise you're constantly fighting against the natural flow.

I Love my Mouse bag I got a few weeks ago.

Hi! I was just visiting Madelief's blog, and from there I found yours!

I am just getting back to playing w/ art after a three-year diversion building a house. I don't think I've got my "mojo" back yet, but I'm working on it! :)

Your blog is wonderful!!! I love what you share, and I'm looking forward to whatever the "new mouse" creates. Count me in as your latest follower!

I didnt get chance to comment on your previous post, but I just wanted to say that a long time ago I realised that unless you can find a niche that allows you to charge a lot of money, then often its not going to pay to make beautiful handmade things - thats why I tend to make things only for gifts these days. Also, I found "mass producing" (back in the 80's when I had a captive audience - a couple of hundred women at work!- for my sewing and silk flower (ghastly) creations) soul destroying - but it did get me to Ibiza a couple of times!!

Lovely blog! I am so happy to have found you and know I shall return!

Heather said...

Oh, I really love those pin cushions! So lovely...I love the daintyness of your creations...
I dont think you can go wrong by following your heart. You dont want your art to become a chore. Sometimes retail makes that happen...
