I did not plan to take a blog-sabbatical for the last two months nor did I plan to return to blogging today. I suppose I am following my muse; and, today, my muse is Bane over at GIY: Goth It Yourself. I am terribly behind but her December theme is Anything Goes; and, well, I have been crafting.
If you have followed my blog, you will know that I LOVE Christmas! I also have a tradition of making Christmas spiders since my last name derives from the Polish word “spider.” Plus, it just seems to goth up Christmas a bit.
Here are some older posts if you’re interested in reading about the legend, a how-to guide, and my beaded-spider-making habits:
It was an awful semester following a complicated and challenging year. I needed to craft this December and wow did I craft. I have made nearly 40 Christmas spiders, and I do not plan to stop anytime soon. Also, I continue celebrate Christmas until Candlemas so while the rest of the world has moved on and taken down their decorations, I do not until February 2nd. Without further ado, here are my spiders!
During my Christmas spider crafting, I made some beaded flowers.
And, today, I swapped out a plan light switch cover for a more interesting one. It only required a picture and some sticky tape.
While this was a quick post, it’s still nice to be back.
