Trick or Squeak!

My mom suggested I make a ghost costume for little Squeakers the I did! Turned out pretty cute, but I still have to add black shadows around the eye holes for better definition, and break up the white a little. I think I'd like to make a whole slew of accessories for Squeakers, for different seasons and occasions.

I should mention that when I was about 9-12 years old, living in a Tennessee country home, all the "stray" mice and other assorted rodents, like a flying squirrel, that I adopted as my pets, I named Squeakers. Or versions of the word "squeak". My kitten was named Squeaky for her sad high-pitched meow, so I guess I tried to honor her by naming all the rodents after her. So after a rigorous search for the perfect name for this little mouse, I remembered the little girl long ago who knew what her name would be right off!
