I ♥ spiders

I made this using this awesome tutorial. It's 4" from tip to tip. I love it! Then I had to make a purple one for the young lady that works with me that is terrified of spiders, but loves purple☺ She still has it on her desk. I think it's growing on her☺ Then I had to go out and buy a ton of beads in a whole bunch of different colors to make a whole bunch more spiders. I figure they would be good for Halloween AND for Christmas.
Never heard of the Christmas spider?
Well, here goes....... 
'One December, a mother was busily cleaning the house for Christmas.  She swept every corner of every room completely clean, for she wanted everything bright and shiny in time for Christmas Day. The spiders fled upstairs to the attic to escape the broom, for they knew she was far too busy  to follow them up there. On Christmas Eve, as soon as the house became quiet, the spiders slowly crept down for a peek. They scuttled into the living room and oh what a sight…

some new beady stuff

In addition to the owls I've been working (and reworking & reworking) on, I have a  few new pendant and bead sets.

The little 'bee hive' beads. Cute huh?

The little birdy beads. Cute too huh?
Who doesn't love humming birds?
And I finally decided on THE owl design(s)
The large ones (approx 1 inch tall) and the small ones (approx  3/4 inch tall) are slightly different designs. I like both designs and of course each bead has it's own "personality" since each one is made by hand.
 I'm hoping to start listing all of these in the next few days☺ *(coming fish and dragonflies☺)*
And since I ONLY have about a gazillion unfinished projects in the works, I decided I should add a little something.

Something simple...
just to keep my hands busy...

when i am just relaxing...
We all know how much I LOVE seed beads (OMG they drive me CRAZY!)
Nothing like starting "simple" when trying something new;~)
Is there a cure for this type of thing???
This is a pattern f…

not my favorite way to start my week;~(

This is what greeted me this morning.... on a Monday... this wasn't here when I went to bed...
Even though this will probably be gone by the end of today, it will be here for my morning commute. And since everyone in Alaska seems to forget how to drive in snow over the summer months, I hope you'll wish me luck.
