Halloween spiders

I have a soft spot for spiders.  I am sure it all started with Charlotte’s Web because honestly pretty much everything with me has a book that is in some way responsible.  I just have always kind of found them amazing, and I love all of the different stories and lore about them.  Did you know that they actually have paws, like a dog or cat?  My husband hates them, he isn’t supposed to harm the ones around my desk… read more

When I first started making cards my local Michael’s had a lot more Halloween papercraft stuff.  Now they barely have any.  At least they still have some fun Tim Holtz things (like the guy on this card), and I am lucky to live in an area with other craft stores I can venture to as well, and I can always get things online, so I should look at it as them helping me save money and not a bad thing at all. read more
