Have you seen my hot glue gun?

For the last two weeks I have been looking all over for my glue gun.  Where can it be?  Only two of us live here, plus the dog and neither of us have used the hot glue gun for years.  Where is it?

Doesn't it drive you crazy when you know you have seen something recently and you think you can picture it in your head but can't find it? Oh, it is so frustrating!   I have looked everywhere I know to look and simply cannot find it.   I am sure it will turn up one day in a place that will make perfect sense and I will think, "Now, why didn't I think to look there!"

Basic school glue stood in for the hot glue in the project I was working on and I can move on now.  My frantic search for the glue gun has ended.  But when I find it I have a new project I want to try.  I just read about using hot glue guns for stencils and fabric painting! Yes! Have you heard of this before?

Check out Terri's blog and see how she made a stencil and painted her fabric.  It is cool! Something I want to do.  Let me know if you try it and how it works for you....and be sure to let Terri know as I am sure she would be interested too.  Check out the rest of her blog.  She is a very talented lady.

Happy day!

Oooo! You have really GOT to find that glue gun! Don't give up! lol
What a super fun thing to try...I love how she also flips it over to get the positive image as well. Looking forward to seeing your results!!

This looks very cool. I know where my glue gun is. In fact, I have a couple of them but no paint. Do you know about this paint?

Don't feel bad - it took me a week to find my Christmas ornaments this year.

I know a sure fire way to find that glue gun - just buy a new one. The original will show up before you can get the replacement completely out of the dang plastic shell they encase everything in these days. Then you'll have two to misplace and drive you crazy. (I don't know where mine is either)
