I am kinda weird in the fact that I like my glue to be ready to use when I need it. So I always store it somewhere upside down. In my craft bag, it is upside down, in my craft room, it is upside down, everywhere upside down..So I made this to match the rest of my craft room stuff, remember my recycled jars, so this will sit on my table and be the keeper of my upside down glue bottle.. I got this wood pencil holder a while back with a recipe box. I wanted to recipe box to mosaic for one of my girls kitchens. It turned out awesome, can be seen on my slide show at the bottom of my blog. The pencil holder on the other hand has sit in my garage for atleast 3 years...poor thing...Finally it is re-purposed to this beauty. I love it and will use it often now..it breathes a new life now.
