I'm working today so I will be able to grab a "supply" that I need while I am in town. I've been needing it to finish something but didn't want to make an extra trip to town. We live 25 min from town and with the price of gas, I try to make as few trips as possible.
I have 70+ tarantulas. It's my obsess..errr hobby I have numerous breeding pairs. The more captive bred tarantulas, the fewer that are being collected from their native habitat. Thank you for not disposing of him. I know a lot of people would have
I love your windows. I'm no help with pricing though, as I'm cheap and every time I see something I like I think "I could make that". LOL. Anyway, I'm jealous that you have tarantulas there! That is a mature male, I'm sure he's looking for love as that is all they do. Looks to be an Aphonopelma hentzi but it's hard to say because so many of the Aphonopelma genus look the same or very close.
Sand dollars are very fragile when tried out. You can paint them with white glue/water mixture let dry and repeat several times to help then harden a bit. Various Christmas ornaments can be made with them. Oh, and make sure you clean them well before doing anything. I put the ones I find in a water with a little bleach for a few hours, rinse and do it again, then let them dry completely.
I saw a poncho type thing that was made by knitting a really wide scarf then sewing it (or whatever you call it) together. Like one end would attach to the end of the long side opposite it. I'm sure that is confusing but basically it's just a big scarf you knit. I'm new so looking for something simple but cute I could make for my 5 year old. Does anyone know where I could find a pattern for something like that? I can't remember where I saw it
