Creepy Crawly Things and A Give-away!!

Can anyone tell me what the heck this creepy, crawly thingy is?

This is the first time I've ever seen anything like it. At first glimpse, I thought it was fake, but then when it started to move, I nearly broke my neck to get out of the way! Smile.

See, I told you it was creepy. Apparently the old man who was walking by as we were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over this thing that it eats up your vegetable garden, and they're very hard to get rid of because they camoflage themselves so you don't even know where they are!

Yuck. I hate creepy, crawly things. Nasty little bugger.

If you can give me the name to this thing, I will send you a package of Heidi Grace goodies. Really. If you know what this is called, leave a comment and you could win this gorgeous paper pack, which includes the following:

Lil Davis Designs - Vanderbilt, Stripe Sky

Heidi Grace - Day Dream Believer, Floral

Heidi Grace - Only Time, Decor Icons

Heidi Grace - Only Time, Main

You will get two of each because it's double sided. They are all so beautiful, this crappy photo doesn't do it justice.

Xavier said, "mommy we should get a jar and put it in and take it home". Yeah... I can just imagine this thing getting lost in the house after a little pair of hands forgets to keep the lid on, and finding it in my bed, cosy in my sheets while I'm sleeping. My gawd, I'm getting the chills all over my body with just the thought of it.

Needless to say, he wasn't allowed to "get a jar and bring it home". Imagine!

Have a buggy day and good luck on the give-away!

OMG!!! I saw a huge dragon fly the other day and it was bigger than this green thing! I've yet to catch that little centipede in the basement--he's soon to meet his demise....

But can anyone tell me what the heck this thing is called????

I should bring it over to Alex's house and freak him out. Laughing.

It looks like a big caterpillar to me - it will probably turn into a BIG moth. If you really want to know contact your local Extension service - I think you have them in Toronto - try this

Enjoyed reading your blog - not sure how I got here but that's half the fun of finding new blogs! Jamie V in MT
