    I…just…LOVE…these arachnids!
    So creative and eerily life-like. Thank you JCHamm, for the delightful examples of these eight-legged creatures. You’ve inspired me to try some AND to go read “The Christmas Spider” :)

    Very clever design. Love it! I used to have a tarantula in my class room when I was still teaching. It was a gift from my husband. The kids loved it but the parents did not! :D

    Sheeeeeesshhh. Excellent protrayal! These are very cute but me and arachnids don’t exactly get along :) . I like them but they also totally creep me out. :) That means they look VERY realistic!
