Best Glue Ever — another shameless plug

This stuff rocks!!

This stuff rocks!!

It takes a lot to impress me and I’ll admit that on many things, I sometimes  set the bar a little too high.  But, I’ve been art journaling now for about a year and one of my pet peeves is that in all that time, I haven’t been able to find a glue to do everything that I want it to do. Really truly. I have a box in my craft room that is filled with partially used tubes of  glue that didn’t make the cut.

Best Glue Every by ScraPerfect is by far THE best glue I’ve ever used.

  1. It doesn’t string.
  2.  It doesn’t have a horrific odor for the neighbors to complain about. It IS sticky — unbelievably so!!
  3. It can be used as a permanent adhesive or as a re-positionable glue.
  4. It has a super thin applicator point that makes it so precise that it just about makes me cry!!
  5. The cover for the bottle has a little enclosed bit for the tip to fit into so that it doesn’t dry up.
  6. And finally, if you get it on your fingers, and if you’re anything like me that’s a foregone conclusion, you can rub it off.


I’ve tried it for just about everything except for collaging some magazine images.  I’m hoping that it holds up there as well, because even glue that claims it won’t wrinkle paper DOES wrinkle it and sometimes I could just about lose my mind trying to get it to lay flat.  Oh I will be such a happy camper!!! I will finally be able to move onto something new to obsess over!  😀





Detox Smoothie Update….


I am nothing if not relentless once I want something.  It might not seem like much but I really want to like these smoothies.

My personal new and improved Marcy version:

  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of pineapple
  • 1 kale leaf (there’s no use in making it if I have to use 3 as the original recipe ordered, the taste of the kale just makes not want to drink it) (Also, I’m going to be using baby spinach once the kale is gone)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon — but I might try again and cut down on this, a little too cinnamony!!
  • 1 tbsp of honey (shameless plug — I’ve been using raw organic honey, much MUCH less sticky and gooey compared to processed honey and it’s supposed to be better for you)

This was definitely drinkable, with the taste of the kale nearly eliminated. I think I’ll stick with this recipe even if it is a super large size — it’s an nearly full 16 oz tumbler once it’s mixed. Uber filling!!!!
