In the sea world, I believe there are messengers of hope and rescue and romance who find these floating messages and retrieve them sending them along their way on a path to their intended destinations. I couldn't think of a more fitting Sea Messenger than this Medium Octopus Sea Maiden Articulated Art Doll Kit from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. It takes a lot of arms to fetch all the messages in bottles that she finds floating in the sea. She is also called a Sea Angel and there are many like her.
Each of her arms have 7- 10 tiny suckers made individually with paper clay.
After they dried, I painted them all and then glued each one individually on her arms. The crab she is holding one of her beloved helpers. It helps to have helpers on land and sea.

My husband really likes this one... he said, someone needs this by the coffee pot! I agree, that could be his cue to put the coffee on!
