From my studio to you

Happy Wednesday, we have a gorgeous one going up here, cool cool temps and gorgeous morning light.  Why do I have a bottle of "Tacky Glue" upside down on my blog this AM?  So, what do you do when you have a large bottle of adhesive and you are down to a quarter full?  You turn it upside down, slap the bottom, shake, shake, shake, and that is the state my bottle of adhesive is at, I have been using a little flower pot to set it in but the pot falls over or I forget and then I have to go through the entire process again, so I thought about it a lot on Monday, cause I was crazy working on a project and Monday night I thought of a doll stand.  So yesterday I was out and ran into Jo-Ann's and purchased a 7 1/2" doll stand, a couple of bucks, but oh boy am I excited because it works just like I envisioned.  To make the deal even sweeter Jo-Ann's had sizziz dies and texture fade folders on sale for 50% off, well can't pass on that one.  So I am a happy camper this morning with new toys and just a small window to play, so I am off. 

This is the side view of the doll stand glue holder, have a great hump day, hugs
Just a little post script here, when I have finished my design and am ready to adhere my project, I take a piece of scrap card stock and squeeze adhesive to the cardstock and then with a toothpick or other tool with apply the adhesive to my embellishments, with the new stand all I have to do is squeeze the bottle and let the pool of adhesive hit the plate stand and then when finished just wipe off any unused adhesive, COOL.
