bulletpush the ball down a little on a flat surface, just to flatten the base of the mouse.
bulletform the mouse's face by gently pinching and pulling one side of the ball between your thumb and middle finger, pulling the clay up a bit to form the ears, and forward a bit to form the face.  Be gentle; the mouse body should retain its round shape.

bulletform eyes by poking shallow holes with the pencil.
bulletwrite a note stating something you wish to accomplish before the year 2000; tie a knot in the mouse's tail to remind you of your "resolution".
