In the pocket (for Mary's book)

So I had this idea about making a mobile \ hanging with fish that look like they are swimming, then decided to team it with one of my favorite songs.

I made the fish and swimming girl and the song yesterday, but when I tried to put it together, it just looked bad, the paper wasn't heavy enough for the string and the whole thing was hanging limp.

So this morning, I walked the dog to the art store and got some clay to make the anchor and extra fish, much better now, though a lot longer then what I had in mind...

I'm so happy about how it came out, I want to make one for me next, which explain this crazy amount of photos of this thing...

This is the best thing I have seen in ages! I would love to have this hanging in my music room, I love Bjork. I'm hoping I can catch her on tour after the release of her new album.

I can't wait to hang it up!

I still have the Goddess of procrastination up on my study windowsill.
