This is a pretty piece of stained glass. Since it's posted to the DIY Community, could you also include the How-To part so others can do it ourselves? This is a great place to show and teach others how you did it and how others can recreate it. Also, with such an interesting title, I'd love to know more about how that relates to the piece. You create beautiful art @kyc2pm!

DIY peppermint spoons
This is a perfect item to use in your hot holiday drinks — use the peppermint spoon to stir the drink and then the peppermint will melt into your drink. How amazing is that? This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Princess Pinky Girl. Materials For this project, you will need: -- Hard peppermint candies -- Oven -- Spoon molds (you can buy these at a craft or baking store or online here) -- Plastic bag -- Food/candy crusher (you can also use a hammer) -- Chocolate chips and sprinkles (optional)You can find most of these items at a craft or grocery store. Form the spoons Put a lot of hard peppermint candies in a plastic bag. Then, use the food crusher or hammer to crush the candies into smaller pieces. Put the smaller pieces into the mold, as shown in the picture above. Make sure there are a lot of peppermint candies in the handle as this section will break easily if there is enough peppermint candy there. Melt the peppermint Melt the peppermint candy in the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the candy to make sure that it melts all the way, but doesn't bubble. If any of the spoon looks thin, you can add some more peppermint candy pieces and stick it back in the oven. Let the spoons cool completely before removing from the molds. If you need more help making the peppermint spoons, check out this video with simple step-by-step instructions. If you want to add some extra flair to your peppermint spoons, you can add melted chocolate and sprinkles to your spoons. Use the peppermint spoon in your favorite holiday drink and enjoy!

How to Buy a Sewing Machine For Beginners?
If you are wondering how to buy the best sewing machine for beginners, you have come to the right place. Here I will share with you some experience I pick up over the years. As with any other works, sewing requires decent tools to begin with. You might have guessed the most important tool to think about is your first sewing machine. >>> LEARN MORE: Top tips for first time sewing machine owners #1 - Start with the mechanical sewing machine Here are the two reasons that I think beginners should start with mechanical sewing machines. First of all, computerized and electrical models are packed with several features. While this is good for experienced seamstresses who love to have many choices at hand, too many options will likely to confuse first-timers. When you are new to something, it is best to stick to the basics and master them first. Second of all, the more advanced the machine, the more effort you need to put in to maintain it. As a newbie, you may not know how to do the regular maintenance on your own. So to save your time, start with a mechanical model. >>> MORE TIPS: #2 - Understand basic features of a sewing machine Integral needle threader Threading is an indispensible step before you do anything with a sewing machine. The word “threading” may sound easy enough but when you have to do the same thing over and over again for thousands of times, you will soon become bored and weary. Don’t think only the old have problem with this task, even when you still have great eyesight, a needle threader will make things a lot faster. >>> SEE ALSO: Top loading bobbin I have had quite a lot of problems with front load bobbin so believe me when I say that you will want to find yourself a top loading one. With this model, you get to see whether your bobbin is running low on thread. Just imagine you suddenly realize that you are sewing without thread and you will understand why I recommend a top loading one. And it is easier for you to get your hand on the bobbin than with other designs. Free arm capacity Many sewing machine models on the market nowadays do not have the free arm feature and this will cause beginners trouble. I know as a newbie, you would like to try many small and useful projects, and a free arm capacity will allow you to sew round and narrow garment pieces easily. So make sure the machine you plan to buy support this important feature. >>> READ MORE: #3 – Read more basic sewing machine reviews Take a look around the sewing machine market and you will see certain names pop up, Juki, Brother, Singer, and Janome, but my all-time favorite is always Janome. Each brand has its own highlight features and for Janome, its selling point is user-friendliness. As a starter, you will want to make things as easy as possible for yourself. Janome is easy to use and many of their models have all the good features that I list above. >>> MORE GUIDES:
실크스크린 체험: 비키룸
실크스크린으로 엽서, 파우치, 노트 등을 만들어 볼 수 있는 체험공간 남포동 비키룸 카페라고 알고 있는 분들이 많던데 엄밀히 말하면 실크스크린 체험공간이다. 전문적인 카페가 아니기 때문에 음료의 퀄리티는 기대말자. 메뉴가 실크스크린 체험+음료로 구성되어 있는데, 기본 구성은 엽서이고 추가비용을 지불하면 파우치나 노트로도 변경 가능하다. 체험으로 내가 직접 만들어 볼 수도 있지만, 실크스크린을 이용해 만든 가방, 포스터, 파우치, 엽서, 컵 등 다양한 굿즈도 구매할 수 있다. 신발은 반쯤 벗고 나 뭐하니.. 커피 종류는 드립팩 뿐. 직접 내려 마시는 재미가 이찌요👻 한 켠에 따로 공간이 있는데 이 곳에선 실스크스린 클래스가 진행되는 듯 하다. 클래스가 아닌 일반 체험은 따로 공간이 나뉘어 있지 않고, 계산대 옆쪽에서 바로 이루어진다. 몇 가지의 도안 중 원하는 디자인을 고르고 또 원하는 컬러를 고르면 선생님(?)께서 체험을 도와주신다. 정작 내가 하는거라곤 물감을 얇게 펴는 것 밖에 없지만, 완성된 결과물을 보면 괜히 뿌듯하고 신기하다. 내가 만든 파우치! 파우치가 너무 새하얀 백색에 빳빳한 소재라 인위적인 느낌이 좀 아쉽긴 했지만 사이즈도 실용적이고 튼튼해서 나름 만족. 같이 간 동생이 만든 파우치 시강✨ 커플들이 데이트 하러 많이 오던데, 실크스크린이라는 아이템으로 요런 공간을 만들어낸 아이디어가 참 괜찮다고 생각했다. 실크스크린은 대학 때 수업으로도 해봤었지만 내 돈 주고 하니 더 재밌는걸😝 근처 젠틀몬스터 쇼륨 구경하고 남포동 나들이 끄읕!
