The idea for the Squeak Show has been in my head for many years now, and initially I was thinking of doing a mobile exhibition with a converted van, where you could look through small apertures, like the original peep shows, and see different scenes with the wee creatures living out their lives and having fun (which I'm sure they do when my back's turned!) The idea has never left me.
I have also wanted to do something like the Mouse Nativity set, where people collected a mouse each month and ended up with the completed Nativity set by the end of the year. And then, on New Year's Eve, these two ideas came together and resulted in the Quernus Squeak Show Calendar and Collectors' Club! I've been waking up early most mornings with so many ideas for the different scenes - it's just so exciting!
The Squeak Show Calendar will be unveiled when it goes on sale later in the year, but you'll have an idea of the theme for each month based on the Collectors' Club wee creature for each month. This is another aspect of the original Squeak Show idea that I wanted to keep - the element of surprise and the grand reveal!
If you're interested in taking part in the Collectors' Club, or have any questions, please send me an email. Those who sign up for the Collectors' Club will get priority in each month's Collectors' Club wee creature release, and if you collect the full set, you will get a signed calendar for a specially discounted price. And if you're not collecting the full set, I'll be making a few additional wee creatures every month which will be available in my shop (I'll keep adding other wee creatures in there too, so it's worth checking out the In Stock category from time to time).
Squeak Show will evolve over the course of the year, and we'll keep in touch throughout, mostly in the Quernoholics Anonymouse group, and also by email.
The Collectors' Club wee creatures for January are the Cozy Snowball Mice, similar to the ones I made for my Christmas postcard.
