I went to Micheal's after work and headed straight for the glue section. I bought 3  different types of glue to try. My husband said I have offially lost my mind!  Grin

Bet he wouldn't say that if he were buying tools. After all why would he need more than one type of saw, screwdriver, nail, etc.? Grin

And did we mention glue dots? AIMR, you're definitely into adhesives; I only used 3 different types for the cards I was making last night. Guess I need to up my game! Don't know how many types I have, but except for the one Wulf mentioned, I have all the ones the group has mentioned plus glue pens, adhesive sheets, double-sided tapes, and all those adhesive foam dots that paper crafters like to use. And there really is a time and place for using each of them.

Love the cuttlefish! I'd put one on my tree for sure!

Have never seen or heard of Coccoina brand adhesive. Sounds well worth investigating, especially for mixed media applications or something I want to last over a much longer period of time. Where would we be most likely to find it? Craft stores? Art supply stores? On-line? Hidden away in your workshop? May have to make another trip to Canada if you're our best source!

I wasn't that excited by the knitted trees...they seem a bit "floppy"...and too much hand sewing...I am also leaning more toward a winter theme as I want to start collecting non-traditional holiday ornaments to decorate a non-traditional tree...more like a nature tree: birds, snowflakes, apples, etc. Any interest in these types of ornaments?


Non-traditional? Even when we do traditional themes we seem to find non-traditional ways to create our items. I think anything you feel drawn to make will be awesome no matter what the theme - - - well, maybe not snakes. Snakes just creep me out. LOL

How do the rest of you feel about vintage Christmas images? I'm thinking about making wooden ATC ornaments featuring Victorian era holiday images. Do any of you enjoy that period?

I've been to a number of scrapbooking and card making events where the ultra fine tip glue bottles are used. If you want an extremely fine line of glitter on something, for instance the veins on a flower or leaf, hand embellishments like a signature or the center of a flower, or attaching intricate die cuts to your work, then an ultra-fine tip is really your best tool. If the scale of your piece is less delicate, then a typical bottle of glue or glue tape runner may be a much better choice. As for glue sticks, I never use them. They don't seem to hold as well as liquid glues (Tombow, Aleene's Tacky Glue, or E-6000 are commonly used) or tape runners (Scotch brand and Xyron are quality brands). There are many other quality products available but those are the ones I see used the most often and what I generally prefer.

Definitely looks like a robot head to me. Obviously the two people who mistook it for a monkey know very little about monkeys or robots!

Sorry for the dodgy and upside down picture. I'm at work on my phone

I just chalked it up to you being from Down Under! LOL Isn't everything upside down there?Huh Or maybe we North Americans are the ones who are upside down.

Wulf! Wonderful to have you in this swap! Been missing you on the boards, but thought you might be busy with the performance season. Can't wait to see what you and Onyxnox create.
