The first week of April is "Be Kind to Spiders Week" so one of the Friday Frivolity crew thought it would be a fun idea to have a spider theme. We could do spider crafts, spider books, or share information about how spiders are really helpful creatures to our world.
I was not that host...
I jest. I actually don't have a problem with spiders for the most part, as long as they stay outside and eat the plant destroying ants we can happily co-exist.
My friend, Mary, is another story. Read her hysterical encounter with a spider that inspired the creation of what may very well be the ugliest cake in the history of ugly cakes (made by yours truly). It may look scary, but it more than made up for it in taste. Get the recipe here, but you can just make a regular looking cake if you want. ;).

For those that are not on our mailing list, Sarah will be taking some maternity leave from the weekly party. She will be linking up and visiting and hopes to rejoin us as host when she is up for it. Luckily, Amethyst is joining us as a permanent host. The four of us will still be visiting you all and sharing your awesome posts.

Hi Audrey - thanks so much for the lovely feature of my 5 things Friday post from last week. I'm glad it helped in your frantic rush to catch up 🙂 Also I loved all those spider memes - they gave me a smile! I'm doing the April A to Z Challenge this month so I've included my "F" post in the link up today x

I have thought about doing the A to Z Challenge before, sounds fun.

Ha! Those animals were hilarious. And I loved your sly reference in the newsletter! #FridayFrivolity
Once I found the polar bear one I knew where I had to go with this prompt.

Oh Audrey! These are hysterical memes, had me spitting up my coffee with laughter! Especially that Giraffe! <3 #FridayFrivolity
I'd like to know how the giraffe really got up there. ha ha.
These are great! Loved them!
