Maybe only HGTV junkies like myself know this commercial. “I’m a painter and Scotch blue is my tape”. Well, I am a painter (occasionally) and scotch blue is my tape*.
But this is about glue. Who knew one could blog about glue?
Something as simple as buying glue stick is a challenge for a not made in China shopper. Recently on a late Saturday night – being super crafty – I ran out of glue and had to get some ASAP. First visit: CVS, where they carry the Elmer brand of glues. That’s what the kids all use, right? And guess what, it’s made in China. Panic. The content of a glue stick is proprietary, which is understandable (and convenient for the manufacturer too).
Second stop: Walgreens and they had Scotch glue – which turns out to be made in Mexico. So freaking excited. Excited about glue! I guess I can say I do enjoy the small things in life! The results: super cute scrapbook pages, if I do say so myself.
*Scotch blue painters tape is made in USA or Mexico.
