I’m sick of talking about health stuffs at this point. I’ve made appointments with the endocrinologist and gyn, but they’re 2 weeks and 4 weeks away, respectively. I’m giving my medication a chance to work. I’m just in a holding pattern right now, but that’s not a bad thing.
I did accidentally take twice the dosage I’m supposed to of my Cymbalta yesterday. I’m supposed to do 30mg for the first week and then step up to 60mg. I totally missed him saying that, and I’m glad Daniel was there to pay attention. I doubled checked the samples, and he did, indeed give me a box of 30mg pills. Oops. I was so out of it, but I did do several things that would’ve previously made me nervous, like making appointments with the specialists. I had been trying to call the Endo for a while, and it was busy. I double checked, and they were the only endo within a 30 mile radius that took my insurance. I thought to myself, ‘you know, I should probably be freaking out right now. My heart rate should be rising, and I should be thinking about what will happen if it never stops being busy!’ and my body was like, ‘meeeeh. I’m too lazy to care.’ Then I laughed at nothing for five minutes. So, yeah.
Also, I was uncontrollably yawning all day. It’s the weirdest side effect ever.
This post is not about me being high on anti-anxiety medication, though. This post is about Halloween crafting, because it’s the best kind of crafting!
I saw several versions of framed spiderwebs on Pinterest, and decided to give it a go. I bought a cheap frame, removed the glass, decorated it with some purple glitter glue, and made a spiderweb inside.
Some tutorials had the yarn glued to the back, others were taped. I even saw one that just wrapped the yarn around the frame. I decided to just tie the yarn to the tabs that were holding the glass in place.
This was a pretty easy project. Once you get the straight pieces of yarn in place, you just tie the swirly one in place at every intersection. The hardest part was making sure it was tight enough so it wasn’t droopy.
I bought a pack of spider rings for pretty cheap at Walmart. I cut the ring part off, and glued the spider to the web.
We have a GIANT fireplace, and I had made this to go above the mantel. I think this frame was only about 9×12. It looked way too small. So, Daniel built me a larger frame out of some old moulding, and the small one found a new home with Megan. I knew she’d appreciate it.
I followed the same steps: painted the frame black, decorated with purple glitter glue, added the web, glued some spiders to it. It was a little more difficult because this new one was 2 feet by 3 feet!
I chose to staple the yarn in place for this one since there was nothing to tie it to.
Kitten McNugget keeps pulling the middle spider off the web. I glued it back on a few times, but gave up. Cats are bad.
So… There’s another one of my Halloween crafts! I’ll post the rest soon. They’re all super easy, so I’ll probably just put them all in one big post. This last photo has a sneak peak of my mummy lights. Aren’t they cute?
Halloween is the best!
