Even though it's really early into the 12 Days of Christmas Swap, I must say how honored I am to be amongst such talented artists.
For the Second Day of Christmas, we opened a box from Barbara, and inside was the neatest little gift box! Check this out:
Clever, right? And yes, that is a spider adorning the box... it is a bit of foreshadowing of what is inside.
Tucked inside a beautiful bit of Joss paper, I found this beaded beauty:
Wow! OK, I'm not generally fond of spiders or other creepy crawling, scampering, or slithering bugs/insects ... but, this is one spider that is welcome in my house anytime. It's absolutely gorgeous!
A story accompanied this beautiful spider, telling the German legend of the Christmas Spider.
Thank you, Barbara, for such a wonderful surprise. This spider has found a new home, perched on the corner of my computer screen!
Thanks for reading!
