CALVIN MOUSE!!!

There is something afoot in my house....and i have an inkling as to who is responsible!!!

Today i was clearing out my outside shed. I moved a pile of wood, behind which was a heating pipe with lagging around it. However it would appear that i have had a tiny visitor over the recent cold weather spell.....



My first thought was "How cool is that!". A little mouse has obviously set up home next to a warm pipe in my shed. I had to take a piccy as it is the sort of house my girls would make over the forest for the fairies. So what has this got to do with Calvin Mouse you may ask?

Take a look at the door or window blinds that the mouse has made....he's obviously a paper crafter!!! I can't for the life of me figure out where he got the paper from, i might have left a bag of shredded paper in the shed, the paper looks quite neatly torn into strips doesn't it?

Surely a mouse can't nibble that neatly? This is exactly how i found the nest by the way, it hasn't been touched by me at all......



So i reckon i have stumbled upon a certain helper of Maddy's, which now leads me to wonder what he's doing down here!?

He could be on some covert reconnaissance mission, i have had some pretty cool crafty stash arrived recently, maybe he's after that?

Actually, Maddy said the other night that one of her Copic's had run out, I'm telling you now people.....if Calvin Mouse has been sent down here on a mission to snatch a Copic......you'll be seeing the first use of a Copic and a mouse to make a washing up brush! I'm sure i don't have to tell you where the Copic will be inserted to act as the handle!!!

I know we made friends after that inking episode, but i have to be on my guard with Maddy, she's a sly old fox that one! :)

Thank you for my awards, i will getthese sorted as soon as i have time (bit snowed under at the mo, hence the abscence from the blog.)

Calvin Mouse is definately up to something though, i think he's got a lookalike to lay in bed faking a cold whilst he eyes up my stash!

Rica said...

Now come on Calvin - don't get paranoid. It is an honour to have Calvin mouse named after you.
He definitely has a cold because he passed it on to me. I've just been to see if he's feeling a little better and Maddy gave me a message for you - right here goes
As I'm patting you on the head -
"there there ! rofl !" - now wasn't that nice.
A little blinkie of your pineapple would look wonderful next to Calvin Mouse.
hugs Heather xx

Aaack! Mice are efficient shredders. I had one in my house in Italy and it shredded EVERYTHING!

Sorry I haven't visited in a while--lots going on these last few months. Can't wait to see the projects you grace us with in 2009! =)
