Peanut's Home! Oh, and here's an octopus.

Hey everyone! Peanut is back home, safe and sound, and very, very happy! I am very very VERY happy, too! It's truly a miracle. Thanks again for all the kind comments and your prayers! So back to our regular scheduled non-dramatic posts. *Huge sigh of relief* I made this poly-clay octopus ornament for a personal swap. This is my first poly clay creation since probably middle school.
Definitely not my usual style, but that seems to be happening more and more often lately. Swapping certainly pushes my crafting limits, because I try to make stuff suited to the recipient's taste. So, this guy is painted pretty dark, with red crystal eyes. I like the way the spattered yellow and white ink turned out :)
Aaaand I'm pretty proud that I actually made this guy with 8 legs. I usually miss a leg or two... Anyhoo, happy (truly, very, absolutely) happy Wednesday!!!
