House-Mouse Designs [SIV334]


Published December 18, 2013 at 1:03 p.m.

12/14/13: It all started with a pet mouse named Tiny in 1980. Tiny inspired artist Ellen Jareckie and marketing partner Barry Percy to start House-Mouse Designs when they were UVM students. Over the past 33 years, their business has thrived and Ellen's fanciful mice designs are instantly recognizable whether seen on greeting cards, calendars, mouse pads or buttons.

Eva visited with Ellen and her mice Squeak and Blizzard at her studio in Shelburne.

Music: The Smittens, A Little Revolution, "Twitterpated!" (Mfdod Remix)
