I made a new stained glass craft video and website--definitely not the high end architectural work found in these ranks--but a how-to video on making stained glass gingerbread houses. It might not be of universal interest here, but I am wearing a FABULOUS APRON throughout. :) Nonnie

There is also a 90 second version going up on YouTube, again featuring the FABULOUS APRON, as soon as I can figure out how to post it.

I need the youtube version. Can't do quicktime here. Owning no Apple products is kind of like shooting Kodachrome anymore.

Thanks at least for trying Don! We're having a little trouble putting the YouTube version up, but it should be up literally in the next couple of days. In the meantime you should buy a Mac.

Wow!!

Who knew what an apron could do?

What an interesting part of the world I know nothing about.

I will never caulk anything again without thinking about "icing" and gingerbread houses.

I could not get your video to play, and I am a Mac user.

So I checked out the rest of the site. I love this idea. I can see an evening of fun with friends or family. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

Let me guess, was your apron denim with a couple of G's on it :) Does it look just like mine :) ?

That is COOL! I'm going to try to talk my friend into making one.

Okay, here's the short version, finally up on You Tube. The crafter is questionable but the craft itself is fun. It's a great grandparent/grandchild activity.

Wonderful Nonnie!!!!! So good to see you again.

This looks like a real fun project. How do you clean the cake decorating tip. Should you be using a mask for th smell?

The smell of the caulk is negligible. Cleaning the tips is easy with warm water but a little tedious on the star tips at the same time. The first time I taught in Vegas I cleaned them all myself and was ready to collapse. Now I ask the students to help me. Wilton sells a tiny little brush in their cake decorating displays at craft stores and it's well worth the two or three bucks. Otherwise I use a toothpick with the warm water.

Really nice job of production Nonnie. I liked looking at the instructor's and students' houses on the website too.

Art, I'd download quicktime but I'd rather work around it rather than have to endure all the cleanup of taskbars and startup menus, default file type associations, and a question about every 15 minutes whether I want to upgrade the version or buy full features.
