The adhesive that we now recommend is Glue Glider Pro, we will be getting more in stock over the next couple of weeks. Many of the staff had switched over to this adhesive several months ago, but i was holding out because i liked the little dispenser, but as far as the strength and hold, it is the only other adhesive i have liked.
On a happier note-Christy is steady receiving box after box after box from CHA Summer, so come check it out: Recent deliveries include: Moxxie, Reminisce, Heart of Texas LSU/Tiger/Mardi Gras Chipboard Albums, Robin's Nest, Webster Pages, SEI, AND FLEUR DE LIS JEWELRY!!!

You probably can't see this too well. This is a sketch/design using the Basic Grey June Bug Collection. This little secret (Basic Grey June Bug & Lemonade) has been hiding near the Louisiana section instead of the new wall, so I thought I'd share some cool designs with it. If you do like it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org & I'll email you the pdf which is easier to read. Basic Grey has some new woolie, pops and the doilies-come check them out!!!
P.S. 5 days until Marah Johnson Visit!! Don't forget to get your MM Shirt (the picture doesn't show true color of tshirt is more teal). This shirt has been such a huge hit, we are on our 4th shipment of it. Girls from "off the street" have been coming in to get this shirt because they saw someone else wearing one, they don't even scrap. Anyway, show your love as we welcome Marah BACK to Louisiana on Saturday. Marah loved our zebra fleur de lis so much, she asked if she could add some "pizzazz" to it, and that she did-we love it!!!
