I am so glad you stopped by today because you are in for a real "treat". Wait til you see what we all have in store for you today. So be sure to visit each blog (some will have giveaways) and all you need to do is leave a comment on each blog, and return to LeslieRahye's blog and let her know you did. As always, we would love for you to follow our blogs, especially if you see something you like.
For my project today, I made a steampunk spider. I have always been creeped out by spiders, but I think this one is actually pretty, still in a creepy sort of way. I was thinking of the Terminator when I covered him with paper, but leaving some of the metal endoskeleton exposed. This little guy has been in a couple of fights, I think. But you should see the other guy, er, uh, I mean spider.
