I swear, adhesive is the bane of my existence!! I typically use a Herma Dotto adhesive roller, and although they work great at first by the time I'm half way through the roll the whole thing is so gummed up that it won't roll any more! I've tried every other kind of adhesive roller and I think the Herma works the best, but that's not saying it works very well!

As I work to create items to build inventory for my Etsy store I'm going through lots of adhesive and I feel like I spend as much time fighting with the roller as I do creating. There's nothing more irritating than being on a roll and have it coming to a screeching halt because of an equipment issue. Ugh!

Speaking of a pain in the neck, I have an actual pain in my neck! I think I've been spending too many hours bent over my work station making cards and tags. I'll have a week long break next week as I drive my daughter to college, so hopefully I'll be refreshed and ready to go when I get back.

I do have some good news today . . . I got my camera back! A I mentioned in a previous post, I left my camera in my cousin's truck in Las Vegas and I've been waiting for him to ship it back. He got it done this week (thanks Paul!) and now I can start taking pictures of items for the store. Yay! Now I just need to learn how to add pictures to this blog and my store . . . so much to learn!

Adhesive is key! I've been too afraid to try anything more convenient than the liquid glue that I've used for years (Tombow Mono), which I've seen craft stores gradually stop carrying for some reason (though Stampin' Up now carries it). Good luck with yours!
