Musings of a Marfan Mom

Bella Spinner Designs Feature


As promised, this week I am featuring small businesses run by my readers! I am really excited about these stores, and I know you will be too.

I’m arachnaphobic. Like, do not even TELL me about spiders because I will get crawly skin. Make me look at a picture of one? NO WAY.

The spiders from Bella Spinner Designs though? THOSE I will make an exception for. They’re glittery, which makes them cute instead of scary! :-)

Crystal, who is the artist behind Bella Spinner Designs, writes: 30 years ago, my mom made Christmas spider ornaments and webs and sold them at a craft fair. I have one on my Christmas tree and always get comments on it. This year she taught me how to make them, and now I have so many ornaments (and had such fun doing it) that I realized I should open up an Etsy store! My christmas spiders are made from vintage ornaments, beads, glitter and a bit of whimsy, and come with matching webs. It’s good luck to find a spider on your Xmas tree — and they make great gifts, too. Each spider has its own personality and is one of a kind.

I highly recommend checking out Crystal’s store! With all the different colors and sizes of the spiders, you’re sure to find one (or two!) that you love.

  1. Those are amazing! When I was in preschool, I made a spider ornament out of pompoms and pipe cleaners. I don’t know if my mom still has it, but that might be a good gift idea for her…


  2. Those are beautiful! What a neet idea.
