Clay Magnets

I've had this picture on my computer for years now, so I thought I'd show them to you. I made them for a swap that never went ahead. This was the first time I had ever made something with clay, and I think they turned out ok in the end. A platypus, gecko, and sugar glider magnet set.
I'm not exactly sure why I chose these animals, but they look good together anyway. I suppose there's a whole world of other magnets I could make, same as the pin toppers. I might have a play around once this numb feeling passes and I get my groove back. If you have any magnet or pin topper ideas you'd like to see created, let me know and I'll have a go. This shall be my photo for the Snappy Friends Weekly Challenge - something old.
Thank you to everyone for their support!
The giveaway is still on (2 posts back) so if you haven't, enter soon!

Amanda, I am so sad to hear the news about Jake. What a beautiful dog. I know how much animals mean to you. You have a very special gift with them that we are all grateful that you share with us. Your whimsical little animals are just such a thing. I don't know what a sugar glider is, but I hope they are really as cute as the one you have made! Always, Elizabeth
