Icky, I can't say I'm a huge fan of spiders. I think they are creepy with a capital C. I do know on a rational level how important they are to our ecosystem and everything, but few things creep me out more than a spider hanging on its web from the ceiling just ready to fall into my hair as I cross under it. I do think they are fascinating from a distance though. I love a newly woven intricate spider web covered with morning dew, drops reflecting the rising sun, when I go out to get the morning paper. Until I miss a step and clumsily tumble through the web, strands sticking all across my face as I fight blindly, looking like a raging maniac trying to pull the sticky fibers off my eyelids and lips. Nothing makes you look saner to your neighbors than fighting an apparently invisible monster in the sunrise. Anyway, I urge you to use caution when doing spider crafts so as not to scare anyone too badly. Unless, it is for Halloween, then have even more fun with scary spider crafts. Just stay away from me
