One Post Away for 200...do I actually talk that much???



Well of course I do.... talk talk talk talk...truth be known I should by all rights be up to about 700 posts by now as I could surely talk enough to reach that number...but alas I try to hold back and post more selectively as I don't want to run anyone screaming for the hills...
Instead...for all of you 'Spider Haters' out there...get your running shoes ready...just thought I would post two fun pictures (in honor of Halloween in our Midst) ... Richard and his pet Black Widow Spider......
I took this shot a few years ago right after Richard made this BEAUTIFUL spider for a doll setting we did .... Richard carved this little gal all from wood ...joints and all. So one day while Richard was napping on the couch...the 'EVIL' Jodi crept into the den , carefully placing the spider on his chest ...then stepped back and gave a little scream of course waking Richard to find the spider on his chest and close to his face...the VERY BAD Jodi...popped a picture!!! OK...two things , I didn't realize it would give him such a start as he made the bloody thing and finished it just the day before...but I guess waking from a sound sleep to see something so large in your face...would frighten anyone (who knew)...and second thing...(and what is not featured here in a picture) is Richard right after this... giving me hell for taking such a chance with his spider...claiming that "You have NO IDEA how close I came to flinging it across the room in terror!!! " OMG...I didn't even think of that...
The bad Jodi slithered off to her studio , whimpering forgiveness ...yet allowing the Evil Jodi to enjoy one more slight smile from the corner of her mouth ....BAD JODI BAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!
Hugs from the GOOD Jodi

Wonderful story! He did a great job!
Don't feel bad about talking too much, I just started my blog in January and I'm almost to 250 posts! I've probably bored people at lightning speed :) LOL!

I remember that piece of work with the carved wood spider on Ebay, very exquisite and detailed work on all of the pieces. For your sake, i am glad that he did not have a quick knee jerk reaction! Oh, my...

I have always enjoyed my conversations with you, immensely.
I am fine with your stories and talking and anything like that.
It amazes me the quality and quanity you are able to manifest and that goes for your mind, soul, and artwork.
To me it is a sign of someone living themselves to the fullest and really enjoying the ride and it has always been a pleasure to see. I feel I am very blessed to be a part of that and stay in contact with you on this blog.
You go gurl!!!
And Richard is the silent, handsome type, a perfect match. ;-D
Richard the spider is truly, truly amazing. I thought it was some new breed or photoshop.

I love the story and I totally agree with Richard! What if he did fling it across the room? I shudder at the thought. Anyway I hate spiders but Richard is SO good at wood working (to say only one of his abilities).
So good that I could even stand to have this one in my house, it's really beautiful. Have a nice day.

Hi Darla...

About Posting here...truth is...I could do it non stop, and actually find myself inching towards the computer when I know good and well I should be 'working' to earn a living...the BAD Jodi strikes again... I love your blog and art work...

Hi Joanna..

I am not a gigantic fan of spiders ...specially Black Widows (bitten by one once) ... but this one and the size it was made one think of it as a Pet!!

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

OOPS Joanna...forgot...YES! it was on EBAY a few years ago.....what a good memory you have!

Hugs

Creager Studios said...

Hi Deb...Thanks so much...will let Richard know how much you liked the spider.
The whole thing is wood..the only metal are his pincers

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Sprite...

I too would have freaked...and then had dreams about the whole thing for 3 months afterwards...ugh!

Well I don't feel so bad now about the amount of postings... perhaps I am talking to little!! Yea Yea...that's it...too little!! LOL

Jodi

Hi Rosanna...

Thank You so much for such nice words about Richard's 'Pet' Spider...lol! I do not care for spiders very much either...but this one was fasinating to look at... and because of it's size it was almost like a small dog with 'long thin legs' I think we even named it...but the name escapes me...

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Leah...Great to see you. Upset does not even begin to cover it...I could only pray to have my running shoes on because I would be out the door and hopefully far far down the street...lol
