My entry for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Moods Challenge

The theme for this months Challenge from the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild is Moods.  I had a lot of different ideas for this challenge, and I even thought I had settled on moody magnets.  However, when I picked up the clay and started smooshing, my muse took me in another direction entirely.  I ended up sculpting this whimsical purple elf holding a puppy wrapped in a blanket.Puppy Love OOAK Whimsical Handmade Purple Polymer Clay Elf Sculpture

I call this sculpture Puppy Love, and I remember that mood so well!  I was 18 when I got my first puppy (one that was truly MINE, not just a family dog).  Randi was so sweet, and I used to cuddle with her in bed at night when she was a puppy so she wouldn't be lonely.  Heck, even housebreaking her wasn't that bad.  She learned quickly, and always wanted to please.  Of course I had to add a little extra whimsy to the piece by making it an elf with his first puppy ;-)  And during the entire month of July this sculpture, along with everything else in my shop, is marked 10% off for my Christmas in July sale.  Thanks for stopping by my whimsical world of critters! ;-)
