My entry, "Kraken II", is my inner animal, the Octopus. You may think I'm nuts when I say I'm seeing squids and octopuses everywhere in the media.  I have decided to embrace all eight arms and enjoy their inspiration for designs this year. This design started out as a 2 inch high "cartoon"

doodled while on the phone, which I then enlarged.  I enjoyed embellishing this guy's watery home with yarn, needlefelting, beads, and a vintage button for an eye.
