Happy Friday Scrapbook Expo friends!
I hope you have all had a fabulous week. I sure have. Yesterday I had the chance to meet one of my very best friends for the first time. This may sound strange, but we met online a number of years ago through business circles. When I got sick and was hospitalized out of the blue, she reached out to me and was an amazing source of support. You see she is a three time cancer survivor and knew just what to say when I was tired and scared and sick yet again. I was extremely lucky in that my test results showed everything was benign but during all those long chats we had, a very real, very genuine friendship formed. We have spent hours, probably hundreds of hours becoming amazing friends. The only catch is that she lives in southern California and I live in Ontario, Canada so we had not had the chance to meet in person. When I recently found out that her family would be traveling to New York for a family reunion, my kids and I decided that we would go on an adventure and drive wherever she and her family were going to be. So it happened. Yesterday I got to meet my good friend Heidi in person. It was totally surreal and as wonderful as we all expected. The two families got along like we have all known each other forever. I bet I will be coasting on happiness for weeks (or months) to come!
Enough about me, I cannot wait to tell you about this amazing new tool called the Hobby Holster. What exactly is a Hobby Holster you ask? It is a silicone holder that is heat resistant up to 400F. Do you know what this means? This awesome little tool can hold your hot tools such as a glue gun and, any glue that drips onto the silicone peels right off once it has cooled. No more burns as you try to get your glue gun to sit properly, more like balanced on your desk surface. No more worrying about your glue gun getting knocked off your desk before it has cooled. Place your hot glue gun into the opening and leave it until you need it next or until it has cooled enough to be put away. How cool is that!
One of the coolest things about the Hobby Holster is that it clings to any smooth surface. Not matter where you are working, you can attach the Hobby Holster and work away. It is super easy to attach. All you need to do is lift up the flap and press it onto any smooth, clean surface.
Once you have the Hobby Holster in place, you can fill it with whatever you like. Whether you want to use it to hold the markers you are colouring with, or your glue gun and glue sticks, this holder will stick to your desk and keep your supplies close at hand.
Do I have you excited? This tool will make any crafter happy, not just scrapbookers and card makers! Would you like to win one for yourself? Our friends at Holster Brands would like to give one lucky Scrapbook Expo friend a Hobby Holster of their own! Hooray!
