I’ve got a glue stick

Pritt glue stick - a great toolI love my Dymo, my new water soluble oil crayons and all of my note books. I love to own a sewing machine (even thought the quilt I’m working on right now is so difficult to sew since it gets bubbly all the time!) and I love to have access to a digital camera, my laptop and lots of other great tools for creative work. I have had my water-colours for years, and couldn’t do without them! But if I were to chose one tool right now it would be the glue stick. (And that is because I can’t take a picture of my own brain, my all time favorite tool for creativity work…)

Oh how I love my glue stick

The glue stick and I go way back, I remember them from my childhood when my mother would glue all the photos of me into a special album, albums that were made for me and about me. The glue stick is perfect for gluing photos to card-stock, and I’ve always had them laying around in the house. And since I started making collages… I think I must’ve finished about 40 of Pritt glue sticks in a year!

  1. Your favorite tool makes me smile. I just finished two glue sticks and still have to buy new ones. My favorite glues? UHU and Pritt. best quality. Your quilt sounds interesting…I will have a browse around your site…will you show us a photo when the quilt is finished? What a great project. If one could glue a quilt as opposed to sew it I’d be all in for it, hahaha! :-)

  2. Tine, for sure I’m gonna show the baby quilt with all it’s gloryful misstakes here. It’s a baby quilt and it’s taking me for ever to make. But soon, I promise!

  3. I think my favorite tool is my brain, too! And I actually thought about writing about it, too! But I didn?t and now that I read that in your entry, I had to laugh out loud! Great! And hooray for glue sticks!

  4. Hihi, I also use lots and lots of gluesticks, I buy them six at the time… I’m glad I’m not the only glue-addict here… :))

  5. I just bought some sepia-toned decoupage and used it last night to “age” some photos for a collage-very cool new tool. One of my favorite tools recently are these rubber alphabet stamps that you can either use a stamp pad to use or apply paint on them directly. I have used rubber cement for ages, but am now thinking of switching over to something less messy and acid free.

  6. Glue is great. I should run out and buy a bunch of glue sticks, because it seems like I never have one when I need it.

  7. Hi hanna, thanks for the nice comments onour Scrapiteria blog. I thought I would pop over and write one here. hey, your Pritt Sticks are a different colour to ours in the U.K. which are white! I use them all the time so i suppose they are my favourite tool too and the nice scissors that Angelica sent me from Texas.

  8. i am glue stick lover. i use UHU and anything that can stick my work perfectly. nice site you’ve got here.
