I'm sure some of you have wondered where the name FibreJunky came from, considering I've been doing an awful lot of paper crafting these days. Well, for the past 15 years, I've been a spinner. I also knit, weave, sew...pretty much anything that has to do with some type of textile, yarn, thread, needle, colours...you name it, I've at least tried it. So, back to spinning. Some years ago, Spin-Off had an article about making your very own drop spindles out of used CDs. How could I not take this opportunity to make a pretty one??

That's why I grabbed it and spun just enough up to make sure the spindle works.This handy, useful little project is also for Our Creative Corner's Holiday (Christmas) Challenge, Creative Card Crew's Anything Goes challenge, and the Whimsical Ink Society's Bright & Bold Challenge. I just love multi-tasking.
