...the etsy seller Bubbletime proves it! She makes some great little polymer clay animals with a dash of personality. I'm usually not one to go for "cute" renditions of bugs and things, but I love these.
This is "The Bored Bee". And you can tell. I'm not sure if that expression could be expressed more accurately.
This Funky Snail is painfully cute and colorful. Like it rasped it's way through a rainbow.
And the Little Box Turtle is my absolute favorite. Just look at that face!!! I have way too many little trinkets but wow, I covet this one.
There are plenty more great little creatures in her shop, including "normal" things like kitties and birds. She also does other forms of artwork such as painting and plush making. She's open to custom orders, which gives me some tantalizing ideas.
