I recently did the IYP with Ludi and wanted to send her a Ghost Squid...it's a bit of a long story...so I used a ton of ironed bubble wrap and made her a wall lamp from one of those dollar store round push lamps.  I was able to shape the ironed bubble wrap forms around different objects to give it dimension as the body parts cooled



She can set it up so the tentacles hang down or they can reach out more like her original photo

Thanks for looking Grin

Ahhh..the Ghost Squid is just misunderstood Grin

Good spotting Wendie.  Those are my mom's thimble boxes.  She is a quilter and has them from all over the world.  There is normally a picture hanging where GH is here and the window to the back yard is just behind me as I'm taking the pic Grin

I'm willing to believe that Ghost Squid is friendly!  Cheesy It is over at Ludi's, so I'm okay  Grin

Oh yes, your mom is a quilter!
Those timbles are lovely! I only own one, bought me one after pushing the backside of the needle into my finger... Yikes! That hurt! But I never seem to remember when I pick up a needle  Huh My timble is always gone!
I love seeing other peoples surroundings! As long as it isn't mine, haha (always a mess and not matching and so on and so on).
How great that your mom got them from all over the world! I should have bought your mom one and send it in your package!

Mwah, gives us a good reason to swap in the future  Grin  Grin
