It has been two years since Steve and I came up with the concept of Hot Glue Gun Helpers. What a journey! From our early prototypes that we crafted from felt to the first peek at the tools and then to our first sales experience at CHA. It has been a long journey and well worth the wait. Last week we got the call from Plaid Enterprises (our partner company) that the tools were going to begin shipping! I literally started to cry! I was laughing and crying at the same time. Silly, I know! We are just so exited (like proud parents) to share them with you.
We also want to say thank you to everyone who followed along on our journey, cheering us to make this dream come true. The dedicated team at Plaid, fellow crafters and retailers have made this dream come true.
To celebrate we are giving away 8 Hot Glue Gun Helper Kits, 48 pink AdTech glue guns and 48 Hot Glue Gun Helper finger caps!!! We are holding a new contest each week for the next 8 weeks- so you have plenty of chances to win. Each week we will draw 6 winners of the caps and guns and 1 grand prize winner of the Hot Glue Gun Helper kit!

This was stage one of the felt, cardboard and bamboo skewer prototypes.
Hot Glue Gun Helpers make their debut at CHA and they were a hit! Crafters were delighted and excited!
