I can’t take credit for the idea. There is a whole thread on Ravelry of spinning wheels that have been decorated. There are quite a few that are very cool, but I didn’t want to go the permanent route of painting and such, so Anansi got no decoration for all these months. Then someone else posted a picture of her Sonata, and there were these lovely curlicues in gold glitter. It looked really fabulous, and was honestly very minimalist. She didn’t overdo it; it was tasteful. So I asked her where she got these things, and she said she got them at Michael’s in the scrapbooking section! So today, I finally found the opportunity to get to Michael’s and find some pretty bling for Anansi. Since purple is my favorite color, well, I had to have it.
I don’t scrapbook, so I never even looked in that department before. The amount of decoration for scrapbook pages is staggering, and this is at Michael’s, which is not, in comparison to Hobby Lobby, a huge store. I’d never been to a Hobby Lobby before enrolling in stained glass, didn’t know where it was, and hadn’t even heard of it. When I walked in and saw how big it was, I swear I heard a fanfare in my head! Wow! This place is massive! So now I’m thinking I need to make a trip there and see what their scrapbooking department looks like! I think it’s time all of my tools got some personalization!
