anyone else out there deathly afraid of spiders like me??? i have had to face TWO gigantic spiders – one last night and one this morning in the basement. *screech* Y’ALL!!! i swear they could carry off babies. and of coursse both times hubby was unavailable to save me. before i was married it was trevor who always saved me (even when he was as small as 3!!!) spiders creep me out – like skin crawling, can’t walk on the floor, hyperventilating to the point of light-headedness freak me out! it does NOT matter if they can’t bite – it’s the legs. too freakin many legs. now let’s be fair i don’t really love ANY bugs except maybe ladybugs or roly polys but spiders are the WORST. the only thing down there to kill them with was a tall laundry basket which is not exactly the best anti-spider weapon. last night i was hopping around pounding the basket on the floor shreiking while the spider was scurrying with those d*** legs and i swear i thought i was going to die but i finally whacked him and he curled up and quit moving. so i made hubby go down and take care of him. but then this morning OMG. this spider’s body was about the size of a freakin nickel ACK!!!!!!!!! so i get the laundry basket and start pounding away and every time i would hit him and he would curl up – HE WOULD GET BACK UP AND START SCURRYING AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well that was beyond creepy. i would whack him and he would get back up and run after a minute or two. i finally got him enough so he quit moving but then i had to get rid of him cuz hubby was already gone. i seriously thought i was going to pass out. but I DID IT! i was screeching all the way to the toilet but i did it! of course now i am completely creeped out and informed hubby an exterminator was absolutely needed. i CANNOT deal with spiders that big. little ones i have managed to learn to deal with but big ones NO WAY DUDE.
SO what was i up to down in the studio this morning before the spider fiasco? i have a little peek for ya:
(yea that’s the pool table…i promise to clean it back up before you get home honey!) i did a bit of glittering YAY!!!! in the background you can see my can of aleene’s spray adhesive – i love this stuff – it’s great for both a full coverage glitter job as well as a light dusting like the grapevine tree and the fall floral picks. i have also been working on the other items i showed you but none are completely finished yet. i have been kinda of deciding how i wanted to do them as i go so i keep realizing i don’t have something i need :P pezza and i will be doing some more glittering later :) LOVE me some Martha Stewart and Art Institute glitters!!!
now i am off to best buy to bring back the new video camera hubby had to get me – the cords are missing :P bummer!
