50 Questions Day and a Beaded Spider

Have I ever told you I have a fear of spiders?  Well it’s 50 Questions Day, here on the blog and a fear of spiders is just one of the topics I will cover.  I’ve never done a question and answer post before, but when Karen from The Feral Turtle tagged me in her 50 Questions Day last week.  I HAD to accept.  Actually, I wanted to accept because I love following Karen’s blog, she makes me laugh… a lot, she is super talented with power tools, she is very creative and crafty… How could I not want to accept?

Of course there were those gifts of bribery that she sent me…hmmm??

Just kidding.

I did receive two very COOL gifts from Karen in the mail, but it was long before the 50 questions were ever asked in blogland.


Karen has become a very skilled spider beaderologist.  Or is that a beaded spiderologist??

She has made a bunch of these cute little guy and girl beaded spiders and she was so sweet to send me one.


I’ve name her pearl.  Isn’t it fitting?   And isn’t she freaking awesome???

This was gift #1 from The Feral Turtle and you can see where her DIY Spider Beading began, here.


Gift#2 was her DIY Dandruff Soap Bars.  Now let me tell you, I could smell the fresh and natural herbal scent even before I opened the package.  It. Smelled. So. Good!!


Thank you, Karen, for sending me these treasures.  I have really been enjoying seeing Pearl perched off my lamp shade,  and I did as you said by letting the soap sit out and breath for a while.  It makes a great room deoderizer, too, by the way.

Without further ado: 50 Questions about me you probably didn’t know.

(My apologies for the spacing issues)


1. What are you wearing?  Velour yoga pants. Yep, I’m wearing Velour and liking it!!
2. Ever been in love?  I’m in love with the feel of Velour and a certain beaded spider named Pearl.

3. Ever have a terrible break-up?  Yes, with the black spider that crawled onto my bed last night while I was reading peacefully… until just then!  He scurried away at my scream.  I think he got the message and won’t ever call me again.  Whew!

4. How tall are you?  Not tall enough to reach the cobwebs on my ceilings from THE SPIDERS in my house with a broom or a Swifter duster.

5. How much do you weigh?  Well, that’s kind of personal.  Don’t ya think??

47. Favorite chat up line?  I should have paid more attention at that chat-up-line seminar…

48. Have you ever used it?  
Wouldn’t I have to know one to use one?

49.  Last time you hung out with anyone?  
I’m pretty sure that black spider is still somewhere in this room.  Is that considered hanging out?

50. Who should answer these questions next?  

Who shouldn’t answers these questions next???

Thank you so much, Karen, for asking me to play along.  It was nice to take a break from crafting and painting to have a little fun XOXOXO

    Pearl is adorable! I’ve been the lucky recipient of one of Karens spiders each one is amazing just like her. I never picked you as a nose ring wearer (should I have said picked and nose in the same sentence) fun post Amy.

    HAHA This was awesome Amy! Thanks for not hating the player or the game! I really think bribing is the way to go with these scenarios! Thanks for making me laugh today! Cheers.

    How fun to read Amy! Seems we have a fear of spiders in common amongst a few other things!

    HAHA, this was fun to read! I also, am not a fan of spiders, but I am better at killing them than the husband. He “kills” them. Which means he attempts to whack them with a shoe and then they just disappear, mad at the attempt on their lives and ready to bite me at any second. I tell him, I want to see a body, actual physical proof that they are dead not just disintegrated.

    I hate spiders too! And I’ve always wondered how a nose ring feels… I think it would get on my nerves. My husband looks like GI Joe…all hairy… funny, you and the scissors! We have peanut butter in common 🙂 Loved this Amy!
