I have a fascination for cephalopods. (Handy, as they seem to be a steampunk trope.) I was reading 20,000 Leagues under the sea and had an image of a kraken crawling out of the book. This sparked an idea which compelled me to make my first Octoarm bookmarks, starting my Portable Art Collection. It was not long before I started making necklaces and earrings.
I have been rather distracted lately. Life has been… interesting. With some major stresses, even writing has been more difficult this week. In an effort to distract myself from current issues, I have delved into my box of creations and did some organising – and was inspired to make some Christmas tree decorations, which have been added to my Portable Art – Octoarms page.
Cephalopods and Christmas – cheered me up. I hope you will enjoy them as well. Why not share the cheer with a fellow geek? Christmas is not far away.
