Chemistry, pillowcases and a tarantula

Today I made 2 Halloween pillowcases for the sweet neighbor boys. They are always so good to my son. Their parents do so much for him, I wanted to make the boys some pillowcases. Their favorite holiday is Halloween. And this line of fabric is the cutest.

I have started to paint some tanks / aquariums on my son's wall. He has been asking for a tarantula for Christmas. Along with a lizard, turtle, and other crazy creatures. So instead of buying and feeding these creatures, I am going to paint them on the wall so he feels like he has them.
I finished painting the tarantula today. And as soon as I can get some time from my chemistry homework I'll paint some more. There will be a lizard, turtle, shark, piranha, and a snake. :o)

Happy September. I am steadily working on my September Bareroots BOM. A picture of that to come later.
