Tree Shopper Mouse Give Away

Bringing Home the Tree

As many of you know I lost my older brother last week.  He owned a tree service and I wanted to have a give away to say farewell.

My Tree Chopper (Bringing Home the Tree) is the most popular male mouse I have ever created.  He wins out each and every year. I think he reminds family's of that time of year when they go in search of that perfect tree to trim.

I am giving him away to someone who leaves a comment below. .  If you would like to have him for your tree this year simply leave a comment and an email address where I can reach you.  Of course I'd love to have you follow me but certainly not just to win this mouse.  I write this blog simply to share something with each of you...not necessarily always a tutorial or pattern, sometimes I post just to share my happiness or sorrow.  Take a look at some of my previous postings and if you have enjoyed then definitely sign up to follow me. This blog, however,  might not be your cup of tea.

I will select a winner on April 15th.
Good luck.


  1. Linda,

    I am so very sorry to hear about your brother! Please know I send hugs and love your way! The very first item of yours I ever saw and absolutely fell in love with was this little guy! And you're right, it does remind me of going out together as a family and looking for that perfect tree! There's nothing quite like going out in the frigid cold and picking out the tree together! What memories! Me...well, I was always the one wanted the "charlie brown" trees thinking no one else would love them! I'd love a chance to win this special gentleman! I'd promise him a good home! Take care, my dear!
