Hello and welcome to
The House of Mouse!
 Wait...no, that's Mickey Mouse...

*AHEM* Let's try that again. 

Warm greetings and welcome to...

 Allow me to introduce myself! I'm Sarah!
(sorry for shouting!)
I'm a wife, a stay-at-home-Mommy to Little Mouse, and the artist behind Doormouse Doodles and photographer behind Doormouse Photography
Knitting away as Little Mouse slept in the early days.
The Doormouse House is a little of the corner of the interwebs where I share the things going on in the lives of my family, fun DIY projects (yay Pinterest!), our musical ventures, a sprinkling of recipes, a dash of musings...just about everything.

My husband & I call Central Illinois home, where I spend my time as a full-time Mommy and part-time photographer, knitter, crafter, seamstress, baker, & singer. Though I have a degree in Music Business with a vocal emphasis, I instead chose to follow my passion for art after graduation, leading me (most gratefully) to where I am today.
Me and Little Mouse hanging out at our community's summertime celebrations.
I love tea, thunderstorms, chasing after my sweet "Little Mouse" every day, and learning more each day about our great and wonderful Savior, the one who we call King, Jesus Christ! 

To me, the best things in life are sending off a package full of love to a customer; drinking freshly brewed tea in a quiet living room with the windows open during Bible time; running, hiking, walking, canoeing, and taking the time to enjoy God's creation; and playing board games with my husband while we eat our favorite snack - apples and peanut butter!


So lovely to meet you all! Won't you stick around? Kick your shoes off at the door (yeah, yeah, we're one of those houses), grab a cuppa tea, and let's hang out!
