Where can I find spacers??

I keep seeing these pretty metal spacers on cards and I can't find them anywhere at my local stores...maybe I'm looking in the wrong section?? I have tried Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, a little craft shop in town....nobody has them!! Any advice on where to look?? Thanks!!

My work space!

OH I AM SO EXCITED!!! In my new house I will have my very own craft room! ALL MINE MINE MINE! HEHE! Okay, I get a little greedy sometimes! Right now I share it as a spare bedroom/my DH hunting stuff and deer heads. Not very becoming of a craft area I must say. I have 4 deer heads constantly looking at me with 2 of them directly above my table!! So as you can tell the first picture is the bare bones start of my room....probably be next year before I get to use it but that is okay I will be patient...that is what I tell myself anyways! The second picture is what I have can see part of a deer neck above my cricut...LOL! I tried to keep them out of the pic but hard because they are everywhere in that room!! When it gets closer to time I might be asking for some ideas or decorating/organizing. I have been searching the internet and found a food good ideas but the more the better!

Have a good day!

Oriental Card

Probably the best card I created this weekend! I love how it turned out! I usually use colored pencils so this was fun using my markers! I have no clue what the symbol means in the corner...hopefully it isn't a bad word! LOL! It came with my stamp kit so I'll just assume it is clean! If you do happen to know what it means please let me know! :)

Butterfly Bookmark

This is just something I created for myself. I didn't color these so I could add my glitter.

I am entering it into LaLa Land Challenge #4 - Distressing

Update on building...

First floor is onto the second!

Sweet Butterfly Card

I am so glad I got a chance to make a few cards this weekend. Still being new I am experimenting with everything. Some things I found I like and others I don't. I'm not 100 percent happy with this card but overall I don't think it turned out too bad. I was so sad because I do not own any shimmerz or stickles and wanted my butterfly to sparkle so bad!!! Does anyone have suggestions on using glitter to cover an entire digi-image like this butterfly?? I don't think it would have the same effect as something like shimmerz but then again I haven't tried it! I want a clear shimmer effect so I could still see my image. Oh and what type of glue would I use?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions...I really appreciate all feedback!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
