It started out so small and innocent

It was just a simple post on my blog that has turned into a nightmare (the good kind.)

Welcome to SpiderFest 2010.

You know, I have never met

Johnny Thunder....I visit his blog and really enjoy listening to him and Chris talk about horror movies on Hauntcast.....but never met him.  I want to now.....cause I owe him.  Not sure what I owe him....but I will think of something :)

He keeps sending me these spider stories.......why?!??!

The latest is that they discovered a new spider....that makes the largest webs in the world.  Thank goodness it did not take the "largest spiders in world" to make those webs....cause we might need big webs, but there is no need for bigger spiders!!! 

Fortunately I have no immediate plans to visit Magagascar. 

But actually, that is pretty cool!  I am talking about the web....the spider is not cool, not cool at all :D

Although the crew

who are very into steampunk stuff - I like it too - they just like it more.  Would have loved his original version....I am thrilled in that "I am really scared" kind of way to see the progress on the SpiderFEST 2010 offering from Stolloween.

Since I really hate pink....I think it is frickin' horrifying as is....painting it will only make it less creepy.  At least that is what I am thinking today.  I am staying with that keeps me from crying in fear :D

Head on over to his site to see more pictures.  Impressive.

....oh, you know what would make it glitter.....:D

It is awesome - thanks so much!!

So what do we have here

OMG - it is freakin' scary spider!!!

I would say I have had nightmares about spiders like this....but since my mind had not gone there yet...... I should say now I am going to have nightmares about spiders like if "normal" spiders were not scary enough, I present you the offering from Grimvisions....

Yeah, I hate him now :D

Check out his website for more pictures.

I will be hiding in the closet.... :D

Let us simplify it even more

If pipe cleaners are just too "complicated" for about glue and paper and scissors. 

I think we can handle that. :)

Here is how to make simple spider... will last about 2 minutes in the rain.  Some art is just temporary. :D

I knew I was going to get

a wolf spider in the mix.  Unlike the banana spider that Rot made, this one I know.  They are creepy and fast and fuzzy...I think they are worse than black widows....and I lived where both are common, and these are worse.

I thought I moved away from them.....but they are following me...I told you spiders are evil.

Head on over to the Grim Hollow blog and take a look at their creation for Spiderfest 2010.

It is truly creepy, it has the face of a wolf spider....I can see that, I thought I had forgotten....but now I remember....I have to go lie down for a while.  :)

Thanks, I am really impressed with this one.  Looking forward to this project.

I can't look at it

because it has a face.


What kind of sick person puts a face on a spider!!! :D

That is just wrong, so very wrong.....and creepy, look at all those bits hanging off of it...and the legs are cool...and look at....


I gotta quit looking at the face.

Thanks Darkrose Manor - it looks fantastic. Check out her blog to see more pictures and do yourself a favor and check out her Poppets. They are definately on the Frog Queen's wish list.

As far as I am conerned

I cannot post this Phil Jupitus routine too many times.  Yes, I know it has been on my main blog twice....but since this is about spiders, I am taking this opportunity to introduce you to one of my favorite comic routines ever.    He has taken the time to correctly put spiders into categories.  This is helpful information....check it out.

Category One

I will say it again...boarding up a room when a category one spider goes missing is NOT irrational, makes perfect sense to the frog queen :)

For those of you that say

that you cannot make a spider.  Here is the how to for you.

Pipe cleaners are safe and fun to use....let your inner child create away!!

Best of all, not only is it naturally waterproof, it looks completely fake looking, it is small and not scary.  The way I like my spiders. :D

It used to be when

someone saw a frog thing on the Internet or saw a frog in store, they would send me a little message telling me about it.

I don't get those I get spiders.  Something is wrong in the universe.

Anyway, thanks to Johnny Thunder for sending me this very funny post about a guy who blew himself up trying to kill a spider.  Granted, if the spider in the picture was the spider in question.....I would have moved.

I think I will stick to catching them a putting them outside...or calling husband to "get the monster".

Remember boys and girls safety first!

So it appears that I am sending

the wrong message to my cats. 

So this is why they do not kill the spiders in the house.  They just torture them and leave them for me to find.  Cats are evil :D
