Craft update:
My fiance and I bought a leopard gecko on Valentine's day.

Yesterday, I decided to try my hand at making my own hides for her. It's not finished yet, I'll add photos as I go along.

I wanted to use polymer clay, but didn't feel like driving to the next town over for it, so I made my own dough clay to use.

There IS a tutorial I found online for this, which is what I'm following for the most part.

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
slowly add water until it's the right consistency.

when your hide is formed, bake at 250 degrees for 45 mins to an hour
