Found a picture of the lead stuff. It comes in a red spool and I cut it with an Exacto knife. It has a strip of adhesive on it. Hope this helps.

Momof2! I also did the entrance window (as well as the guest bathroom window door and the two windows in the master bathroom)
Here are pictures of what I did to the entrance cause it was just too boring and people would just put their heads to the glass and try to see in.
Before from inside:


From the outside:

Simple but effective.
I don't remember what the lead stuff is called. I used it to outline the glass paint. It is lead, turns dark with time and comes on a roll. It's adhesive. Sorry, that's the best explanation I can give right now. (I need to google.lol)
Again thank you.

3  Kitchen window makeover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Jinjeet Phoenix on: August 30, 2012 01:09:34 AM
I got really bored with the window in my kitchen and decided to do something about it.


Done with glass paints, a roll of lead, inspiration from the internet and too much time on my hands.

4  Hypertufa elements or playing in the mud in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: August 30, 2012 12:09:49 AM
Summer is finally winding down now and all summer I've wanted to play with some Hypertufa. While looking at pics in my computer for ideas, I noticed that I never posted my pots.
Ever since I started to make hypertufa pots I've looked at plastic containers differently.  The results:

Thank you for looking.

5  Sleep Masks or how to block out the light while camping out. in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: August 29, 2012 03:09:06 PM
When my DIL finished at her job she wanted to give her co-workers a little gift and the thing that all could use or said they wished they had were sleep masks that block out the light when they do over nighters (They do snappling, camp site stuff in short) So she asked me if I could help.
They were all made with fleece and elastic for the band. DIL gave me great feedback from them. They said they were very nice on the face and blocked out the light totally. It was fun to do and I was happy to help out.
A pic of what they looked like:

All sewn together. Ready for just a bit of buckwheat filling.

All ready!

I even made her a bag so she can carry them all to her farewell party.

Thank you for looking.

6  Pfaff 138-6 Mini Review in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Jinjeet Phoenix on: July 25, 2012 12:58:19 AM

Brand: Pfaff


Year: I believe the 60's

Cost: second hand machine. Got it cheap cause it didn't sell on the web.

How long have you had the machine? About 3 months

Is it a basic sewing machine, serger, or embroidery machine? Industrial machine. Straight stitch and zig-zag.

What are your favorite features? That it's a good industrial. Speed. Has it's own table and that it can sew effortlessly through numeral layers of fabric.

How well does it run? Like "butter" sews like a dream. Anyone not used to an industrial may not get used to the noise from the motor easily.

Has it ever broken or needed maintenance you couldn't do yourself? No yet but I had a technician check it out and oil it.

What are your least favorite features? Don't have any as yet. I knew what I was getting and am thrilled with it.

Would you recommend this machine to a friend? Absolutely but they are pretty hard to find and it's now a machine for everyone. Most can make do with a regular home sewing machine.

7  Angry Birds (Yet again) Joke gone bad! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 03:09:28 AM
To be "funny" I made a red bird for my eldest who is a computer geek and well, works in the computer industry. Anyhow, I thought I'd be funny and make one for him..It exploded and I had to make over 35 of these things...not including the "eggs".

Here is a pic w\the black bird (and you can see why I got an industrial sewing machine...It was murder sewing these things) I still haven't sewn the beak on.

I gave these to the kids in three's.

Gosh! When a joke backfires.
The patterns I got from:

8  Hand Warmer in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 02:52:36 AM
Don't really know where to put this so please excuse me if I've made a mistake.
I have been wanting to make this little bunny for years and finally found the right fabric I wanted. I got the pattern off the internet but they have since removed the pattern. Luckily, I downloaded the pattern years ago and went at it recently.

I just think it's so cute that I had to make one.
With the little bag filled with Flax seeds.

Thanks for looking.

9  Cow Boy Bed in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 02:04:36 AM
My GS recently received a little "boy" doll. So he asked me to sew some clothes for him. (Forgot to take pics of that) But then I found a doll bed that I'd had for a while and decided to surprise him with it. I started off with a bent up bed. straightened it out as best as I could, added some wire between the bed poles (Mainly so he couldn't put his foot through if\when he stood on it).


Then I took some batting I had in my stash and went to work:

Hot glued some stash "cow" fabric on the "mattress". (The kid loves cows)

Made a blanket and a pillow and.....

Thanks for lookin' ya'll!!

10  Angry Birds to the rescue! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 01:16:03 AM
 A few weeks back my eldest asked me to house\cat sit while he and his wife were out of the country. Well, as luck would have it, I took no crafts cause I hadn't planned to be in the house that long. I was hoping to be walking the city, sitting at the beach for a week. Well, for reasons out of my control, I had to stay indoors mostly....and was going stir crazy. Soooo on my trip to the store for milk and such I saw a school supply store across the street....10 minutes later I had my stash! Got back to the apartment and improvised anything. So I made pom pom Angry Birds (Simply cause the kids in my family are still in love with them).  This is what came out of such a simple (but therapeutic) craft.
Angry Bird Gang!

And being the mean mommy I am, I decided to get a little "back" by leaving some for them to find. First obvious place was on the TV

Oh, and some on the bookshelf!!! This is getting fun.

And the fruit of an hours work.

Next time I won't be caught without at least something to craft with!!! Grin
Supply list:
bag of multi color pom poms
google eyes
package of different color felt
a pair of nail scissors (great for those eye brows)
