Meet The Mice...

Amanda photo Amanda Amanda is the most well behaved and mature of all of us siblings. She has fawn colored fur and her ears are a bit large. She is very innovative and is always full of creative energy and ideas. She is always making sure that we behave... or at least she thinks she keeps us from misbehaving!

Monica photo Monica Monica is gray with a teeny, tiny body and big feet! She tends to be sweet, innocent and charming. Don't let her know but even though she is my little sister, I find her to be very precious!

Mudpie photo Mudpie Mudpie is my brother. He has brown fur and a little nick in his ear... I tell him that his name really should have been "Nick." Amanda blames me for the nick in his ear. I however, blame the piece of cheese that we were both racing to eat. It's not my fault that his ear resembles swiss cheese! Mudpie is really lazy. His two favorite activities are eating and sleeping.
He's a true Mouse-potato.

Maxwell photo Maxwell I am reddish-brown and have a perpetually curled tail. I kind of think that I am extremely goodlooking, in a handsome mouse like way. My family thinks that I am a prankster who loves to play tricks whenever I can... well, there may be some truth to that!!!

Lori Barnett
Hello House-Mouse Friends! I'm Lori Barnett and I live in Gilbert, Arizona (USA) with my husband and youngest daughter. Well over 10 years ago, I got hooked on art stamping and paper crafting. I've also spent a number of years designing and teaching coloring classes, card classes, and other misc. fun workshops. There's nothing better than sharing my creative journey with other crafters who love stamps, inks and paper as much as I do! Clean and Simple (CAS) cards are my favorite -- especially with glitter sprinkled on top :)

Snoopy von Seckendorff 
(Snoopy's Homemade Fun)
Hi there, Snoopy here and I've always had a love for crafting. From a very young age I could color for hours. My best friend taught me to crochet in 4th grade and I was hooked (pun intended). I discovered card making in 1993 when a dear friend sent me some basic stamping supplies. I didn't have a heat gun so I embossed over a light bulb or the flames on my gas stove. I've discovered many more crafts over the years as I Homeschooled my three children, but my passion will always be coloring, card making and encouraging those around me. My given name is Eileen, but my friends call me Snoopy for my love of all things Snoopy/Peanuts.  ************************************

Sue Drees
(Sue's Rubber Stamping Adventures)
I have been stamping for over 20 years. Before that, I did decorative painting, sewed, made Cabbage Patch dolls, ceramics, crocheted, and dabbled in any new craft that came along. I am married to my high school sweetheart, we have one daughter, a fine son-in-law and two Grandchildren that we adore.  One of the first stamps I ever purchased was a House Mouse Stamp. I now own an extensive collection and love creating cards and projects with them. I am a retired accountant and now spend my days happily visiting my stamp room whenever possible.
