Does anyone have one of these? I purchased one with a 50% off coupon last week and was wondering if anyone has one & what their feelings are on it.

Make your own glue dots...

has anyone seen the trick to making your own glue dots, I came across it a week or two ago somewhere (sorry I don't remember where to give credit) but it sounds like an awesome trick & alot cheaper than buying actual Glue Dots.

You use Aleene's Tack it over & over glue
Take wax paper & drop whatever size drops onto your wax paper
let completely dry (overnight or more) until completely clear....
Whala you have glue dots!!!
To store them just place another piece of wax paper overtop.
Sounds like a good trick...Now if I can only find the glue used to make them.

So excited!! Updated

I may be getting a entire kitchen cabinet display from the home depot to make my srap/office space in the basement!! (DH is a Dept head there so we can get a good deal) It is a Merlot colored red with black silestone counter tops & back splash --- Oooohhh Aaahhhh, pretty right!? & it will work well down there because in the kids area which is going to be right next to my work area the colors are all primary and black, the tv area is black leather.. so I am pretty set... I hope we can get it.. I should know by tonight if I am getting it and then I should be back to scrapping before Christmas!!!! Yippie, I am jonesing looking at all the blogs full of beautiful work that everyone does & scratching to try some of those great sketches I come across...Gosh I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here is is pic of the basement so far that I was supposed to post last Friday but never got to it.. actually I forgot about it until now... also the link to the before pic post.. The very back of the basement is where my scrap/office will go. What a difference ay!!??

I did not find out about the cabinets last night... nothing happened with the reset so I need to wait some more..UGHHHH anticipation is a killer! LOL
