Here are just a couple I've done so far.  I'm working on a few more too.  A tree and a tree in the snow and a reindeer (that looks like a bear right now...)  I've sewn ribbons on the back for hanging too!

Hi, Brynnolan!
So, the major factor there is that there are more fibres in the thicker spots.  The twist will settle in the thinner areas.  This is a fairly normal thing to have happen, and if it's not incredibly thicker, it won't pose a problem. If it's very thick and thin, you may get drifting, but you never mentioned that, so I'm assuming it's not a problem.
Also, Thinner yarns do like more twist! If you are spinning only singles, and you don't intend to ply, then you need enough twist to hold the yarn together. Much more then that and you'll end up with a lot of kinks and it will skew when you knit/use it.  If you want to ply, you need a couple extra spins of the spindle to get enough twist so that it doesn't come apart while you are plying.

I hope that's helpful and coherent... My 5 year old is talking in my ear, and is being a great distraction...

Gorgeous tile!! and job well done!!

(I had two angel food cake pans - WHY?!)

The answer to this is because one can never have enough angel food cake. True story.
