Liquid Glue Holder

Friday 16 June 2023

I love the Liquid Glue Holder that I received from my friend Beth McCullough at BackStage in New Orleans last year.  I made a comment about it on a recent Live that I did and promised to share it.  It's a good idea to keep your Liquid Glue upright so that the glue is ready to use and this little box is perfect for that!
