whatchamacallits and glue dots

Allow me to introduce you to an old friend! The Hershey's Whatchamacallit candy bar. I haven't seen one in years and now they are on the check outs at Wallywork. Peanutbutter crispy, caramel and chocolate, what more is there really?
I am not sure how many of you were witness to my glue dot melt down of last month. It seemed that Wallywork had decided to no longer sell the Zots glue dots and just with out warning clearanced them and removed them from the modular. This in turn must have caused a general panic and fear of a glue dot shortage, because Michaels was also out of stock on them. I was not happy at all.


Glue dots are my choice of adhesive for ribbons and buttons and many other lumpy items. I always purchased them at Wallywork, since they were less $$ than Michaels, plus you got a bigger box. Well, lo and behold while I was checking out the Martha wall the other day, out of the corner of my eye I spied these Fiskars thin glue dots, in three sizes of thin and one size of thick. I fell to my knees and gave thanks and all was once again well with the world. (Can't you hear the music and see the angels??) I will give them a thorough review and get back to you on what I think of them very soon!

Take care!

1. LOVE the Watchamacallit! Always a favorite of mine when I was a kid. Lots of that "retro" candy is coming back! Now if only ABC would bring back my beloved October Road (not a candy bar but TV show). I'm obsessed with it again lately.
2. Your glue dot crisis story makes me laugh. I actually did hear the music and see the angels! Long live (or stick) the glue dot!
