Here's a fun repost from 2010...
I found a tutorial online for this adorable little spiders made from glass beads. They don't come with fangs but I added that just to further scare my little Ashley.
I made my first spider one night and left it on the kitchen counter when I went to bed.
It seems that Ashley passed by it and considered it an "omen" because the next day a real giant spider was waiting for her when she brought her laundry downstairs! Well, she crushed the real spider and filled me in on her triumph!
I brought one to my friend Natasha who then commissioned me to make a couple for her niece and nephew. I made them that night and when I woke up this is the scene I found on the kitchen counter!
Seems like Ashley was back at work!
