  16. I was addicted (I thought) to another brand of adhesives. Now it's all about Glue Arts. I've had one problem with one product, but it was mostly resolved. I order extra every time I see a sale. I really like the gun, seems to work for me and not so hard on my hands. Since I don't know how to do the "Comment as:" I just put anonymous. I'm old and do well to type on a computer. LOL

    So, if I win, I'm Judy Cromwell, younglr@sbcglobal.net. Thanks for understanding.
