Whow, that's really great!

By looking at your pics of the tangled drill I thought immediately: you need a cap for the tip of the drill. Instead of just placing that cardboard disk at the end of your spool-to-be, how about using one of that cardboard tubes (part of) that's big enough to fit over the end? Close one end with that disk you already have and put it over there, open end first, so it covers anything between your end-of-spool and the body of the drill. No gaps for thread to get tangled into. And if it tangles on the cardboardtube, just brush it off.
Speaking of, you even could make some tiny little cardboardtubes just fitting your dowel. You fit them onto the dowel in the drill, spool your thread, get your regular spool, fit a wheel on one end, then match it to the drill and gently push the cardboardtube with the yarn onto the final spool, put a second wheel onto the open end - spool done, tool ready to go for more.

And for the toilet paper stand - you just need something HEAVY on its foot to keep it down. Or use the handle of a door to put your big-cored-yarn onto - they are not likely to give in so easily. Cheesy

If you're into lighting, get some small  battery powered LEDs and light them up! Maybe put a slogan on them: You light my heart?

Finish them off with glitter. Stick them to cards. Fill them with selfmade soap or make a candle from it. Fill them with glitter and little things, glue two together to make sort of a medallion.

That's really nice. By the way, you all know how to make Washi Tape yourself, do you?

This is... erm... eh...
Sorry. Can't get over the mental fusion of Snape and bros. Have to decide whether to break down laughing or shaking my head - indignantly.

I think the Death Eaters are bros... (even Bella)  Wink
Me too...

Whow, even "flat on" it tricks my eyes into seeing 3D. Good drawing! Great idea to have that corner peek out!

Framing is no problem, hanging is - as we life in the upper part of a oneandahalf-story house which means a lot of tilted walls. The only straight ones are already used.
I'm no clutch type either. I'm a bit inclined to a ebook-reader-cover or the likes... but I feel then I'd have to do a background around the dragon, too.

When IndigoCharme posted about her/his decorated walls, I suddenly had found my next embroidery project. The celtic dragon was just what I was looking for
So this is what I made of it, after freehand-tracing to my fabric:

It's not even ironed yet and I still have to decide what to make of it. Ideas, anybody? It's about 20 cm wide.
