These are a few of our Favorite Things!!

It seems fitting that as we reach the end of the year that we reflect back on what we have achieved and accomplished this year.

This year has been especially significant for Glue Arts as we have started our Glue Arts blog, formally organized a team of designers and really stepped ourselves into the world of social media. We're just a the tip of what we can and want to do.

We asked the Glue Girls to think back over these past few months and pick their favorite projects that their fellow designers made for fhr blog.

We can tell you...it's not easy to go back over and find one that stands out more then the others. It's in fact...a bit difficult. Here are some of the designers favorite projects and the designer who made them!!

Are any of these your favorites???


Kristen Swain picked Glue Girl Linda Albrecht's Fabric Houses as her favorite. "Linda's little fabric houses, they are so adorable! I love all her pretty little bits of them. Top that off that she even added tiny little photos on there, I love them to bits!" Linda used our Fabric Bond adhesive to create these beautiful houses. Think of changing the fabrics and making these for Valentine's Day...or tuck in a few items to use them for a beautiful table decoration for Easter.


Designer Linda Albrecht picked Patti's Milazzo's Sweet Sewing set and said "Patti's Cosmo Cricket fabric sewing accessories set was so fun and useful and I just love anything to do with sewing and her stitching on there was a perfect touch to the project. That cute little glass pin cushion was to die for too!" (we thought so too!)

and she also chose Designer Kristen Swain's Sweet Little Thing Card...she said "I also really loved Kris' envelope card that she made with Crate paper stuff. I love how it's all wrapped up with twine and has all those embellies layered. Then she added that berry sprig.. ohhh...... love."





Designer Patti Milazzo echoed many of the same sentiments..."I absolutely ditto to Linda's birdhouse...just gorgeous! I loved the Cosmo Cricket Fabric houses too!" 

"I also loved Danielle's super cute (May Arts) Sweet Christmas Cheer ornament and card - perfect idea for gift giving...I'm doing this for Alex's teacher....thank you Danielle for being ingenious!"


She also loved Linda's Ipod Cover and Birdy Set..."And that bird is soooooooo cute!"

And I also loved Leslie's Cosmo Cricket Fabric Memory Box...another idea I'd love to do for my craft room...so clever!



Designer Lindsay Wahl echoed the sentiments of everyone.. "It's way too difficult to choose my favorites, but here are two that I especially like--Jessica's teacher treat jars (Crate paper) and Cheri's Winter Warm Up gift tin.

  4. I love those teacher treat jars. I am always stumped about what to give teachers and that is so cute and amazing that I don't want to give it to them! But I did, and my children got lots of compliments on them. Thanks, Glue Arts for your inspiring ideas!

  45. That sweet little thing card is spectacular!

  46. I tried a shadow box for Christmas and set it on the piano. It was full of glitz. I have also done a banner this year, for a graduation party. And a banner for Halloween. I need to improve on the banner for Halloween and put it up again next year. I like the 'updating' part...sort of becomes a tradition or something.
