For when it’s Thursday and everyone needs a little bit more cute, cuddly, and slightly slimey things in their life…Etsy never let’s us down.

I have seen a lot (LIKE A LOT) of fun ocean arts and crafts in my day, but I couldn’t help but SQUEEEE when I saw these adorable woolen nudis by artist Arina Borevich. They are perfectly detailed, true to form, and I need them all. So please go to her ETSY shop right now (craftshop27) and buy them….and send me one.

HT/Chad Thompson for sending me this and making my day a little bit brighter with all my favorite sea beasties.
