    Whoops, crafty, I don't have you signed up for this swap. Did you mean to withdraw from autumn whimsical girls?

    (For maximum post enjoyment, please read the following in your best narrator voice.)



    This third card from Pancake Machine represents the fear of spiders, commonly known as arachnophobia. The card does include classic arachnophobic motifs, such as spider webs and a spider. However, the card as shown is not in its proper location.


    Now here we see that our assistant has placed the work in an optimal location. Indeed, it is critical not to overlook the importance of the proper venue when viewing certain works of art. From here, it is simply the matter of waiting for the audience to appreciate this work.


    Ah - there we have it. Remember, choose the optimal location to produce the maximum effect. Why this chap just had an experience he is sure to relive!

    Well, you might note that I'm reading about pancakes. And the idea was sort of a curds and whey, which, in reality, I've never actually consumed.

    My son was saying that I really need to do the fear of holes. Since he said he struggles with that. So it was nice to see someone who did that phobia. I told him, I think I want to do phobias like coffee, cats, and sunflowers. I also wasn't sure I could do the holes justice.

    Poor little garter snake.
    Pregnant and cold, she crawled up on the edge of the hot tub to get warm.

    Other than startling me when I took the tub lid off -- garter snakes are very beneficial in the garden. They eat bugs and slugs that will destroy an entire crop if the slugs gain a foothold -- I love garter snakes. So I gently picked her up and put her by the potato plants to have a hearty dinner.
    Good thing I don't have Ophidiophobia.

    That was a week ago, and Mom has since had her babies. But then she tried to cross the road to get her space.
    Someone driving by, saw her, ran over her, backed up, then ran over her again. (They must not like snakes.) But when they got out of the car to assure the snake was dead, she looked like a pile of bumps and holes....and the driver drove out of there ASAP. He must have Trypophobia as well as ophidiophobia.

    Hmmmm Trypophidiophobia??????

    Is there a fear of deadlines?

    I found this
    People who suffer from Ergophobia have a persistent fear of work, finding work or functioning and experience undue anxiety about the workplace environment, even though they realize their fear is irrational.

    I talked to someone I work with who had a strong fear of vomit as a child. Emetophobia. Didn't seem like that would make a terribly attractive card though....

    someone made a vomit card a while back, and was inundated with requests to trade.
    S/he used coarse sand and inks and it was beautifully colored and textured.
    Guess we have a weird bunch here....oh, I was one of the ones who wanted to trade so I am not putting anyone down...
