The awesome Cobwebs over at Art of Darkness (she also runs a fantabulous store at Shadow Manor) is hosting the 3rd annual Secret Santa Can Suck It, a virtual gift-swap. It’s not the swap that’s virtual, it’s the gifties.

She and I share a love of spiders and so to her I give an
Octet of Holiday Cheer
Starting the Holiday season by decorating always gets one in the mood and this beautiful spider-on-a-webby-snowflake is seasonal and just a bit terrifying. Just the thing to clear your house of pesky maids-a-milking.
Spider cookies? Did I say spider cookies? Yes I did! I am going to share with you my mother’s holiday recipe for spider cookies! They end up looking a bit like squashed spiders, which may be more palatable for some, but they’re a great way to help friends and family pack on the Holiday pounds.
Everyone needs an appropriate outfit for all the Holiday parties one gets to go to and this fits the bill. Whether performing Festivus Feats of Strength, attending Christmas Eve Mass, or spinning the Hannukah Dreidel for cash, Natalia Romanova, aka the Black Widow, is always appropriate attire.
When she comes home, she’ll find a framed pair-o-webs waiting to adorn her walls year-round. The artistry belongs only to the arachnids who built these amazing homes-cum-snares (and who moved out before the human absconded with the webs). A little beauty for her home.
Happy Holidays to WitchArachne!
