Scrap Product Review: Glue Glider Pro by Glue Arts

GIRLS! You have to grab one of these, asap! I have been looking for an adhesive that not only works well but also last me a little bit longer. As I have been searching I have found some that are quite expensive and so I waited... SO glad that I did, because now I have the new Glue Glider Pro and I love it! Here is a photo of it with one of my latest projects (a binder to keep all of my bible study papers and prayer requests). I also included the super easy to remove and install refill cartridge for you to see :) More of the review and the best place to purchase is below!



Here is the Product description given by the company:

"Our new Glue Glider Pro allows you to apply a neat ¼” strip of adhesive exactly where you want it. The easy glide-on dispensing action, allows you to apply a small controlled amount or a continuous line of the best performing and most permanent adhesive ever offered. Our easy slip-in, disposable cartridges eliminate the worry of having to reload in the middle of a project. No mess, no fuss."

I can not argue anything in that description... all is true.

Other things to note:
--There are three different types of adhesives you can use with the Glue Glider Pro... I have tried them all and personally love the PermaTac & Repositional the best right now. It seems to hold the best (but beware! its not easy to fix mistakes -- so place lightly at first!)
-- It is larger than what we are used to but it feels very comfortable and has a great grip.
-- the colors are cute... perfect for cute scrappers!
-- Each adhesive comes with a different length (Perma Tac is 40 ft. , Repositional is 65 ft and High Tac is 40ft)
-- To remove or install a refill cartridge simply pull it out straight out or slide it straight in and start scrappin! SO EASY!

I got a great deal... so I thought I should share where you can get this great deal too! Here is the link that will take you directly to the order site. If you scroll all the way down you will see the "Introductory Bundle Package" which gives you the Glue Glider Pro that comes with a Perma Tac insert and one each of the different refills so that you can decide which works best for you! 20% OFF, Yay!

It only took one week to get to me, so that was a huge plus as well :) If you get one, please let me know what you think :) I guarantee you will love yours!

An Update: On Life

Gare and I are still looking at houses, but it is exhausting so we tend to take a week or two as breaks in between. It helps us to continue trusting in God's timing and just refresh our minds of what is going on with the market and the economy. Man, you should see some of the crazy homes we have seen -- really shows how odd people are! Thankfully, the prices are still going down... but a new problem arises...

I was informed that some serious changes are to take place at my job (MD Ford Warranty). We are downsizing our office as well as the staff and I can tell that if car sales keep going the way they are, we may have to make more changes to survive -- I know that means that I would lose my job. They asked me to cut back my hours, but we will see how bad it gets. Please pray that God will guide me to where He needs me. I know that He will provide for us. I just cant imagine having to spend any of our savings and risk our chances at buying a house due to this situation.

Gare and I have been diving into community with a group from our church. As a church we are seeking to reach out to our neighbors with the gospel, but the process has only just begun. It is similar to a missionary process. You can not just go in and share the gospel with people... you have to build a relationship with them, love them and live with them. At this point we are being 'trained up' to understand what God's Word has to say about the importance of this. We are enjoying the new friendships and being involved with the church again.

Happy Monday tomorrow!!!

Valentine's Day at the Schultz Home <3



Since Valentine's Day was on a weekend this year, we initially had wanted to go on a small trip to celebrate it (yes! An excuse to get away!). However, we decided to postpone it since rain was predicted for the weekend... So we chose to stay in and have a relax day and just treat each other like true Valentines.

We slept in, Gare made me dinner (Steak, cheesie mashed potatoes and green beans), I made him some yummy heart-shaped cookies and we saw a movie. It was truly a relaxing day which we hadnt felt we had had in quite awhile, so very well worth it.







Also, the week of Valentine's I really just felt like creating! I was in love with all of the cards and other special gifts I had seen made in magazines and online forums, so I broke out my new stamps and papers (that just so happened to be Valentine colors!) and started creating. I made some mini 4x4 Valentine's for Jackie to give to her small group girls and then a card for each of our Mothers. I was pretty excited about the outcome so here they are!

Point Loma Sangria Recipe!


I made this for a girls night and it was amazing! Gare and I will definitely be using this recipe again :) Maybe you will be lucky enough to join us when we do! Do try it though and let us know what you think!


1 750 ml. Bottle White Whine of Choice
2 1/2 cups Apple Juice
1 cup Triple Sec
2 Tbs Granulated Sugar
1 Medium Orange, thinly sliced
1/2 Medium Lemon, thinly sliced
1 Medium Lime, thinly sliced
1 cup Raspberries, fresh or frozen

1. Combine wine, apple juice, Triple Sec, sugar, fruit slices and raspberries in a large pitcher and press the fruit against the side and bottom of the pitcher to release the juices.

2. Chill, covered, until serving time. 8 Hours or Overnight -- The flavor of the sangria is enhanced the longer the wine is allowed to chill.

3. Add ice just before serving. For large parties or groups, double the fruit and use in an ice ring to float in a punch bowl.

Baby Noah!


We got a chance to go visit Jenn and Manny's (our cousin on Garrett's side) new little baby boy, NOAH!

He is such a cute little baby duckling -- yes, I think he has lil duck lips! He is such a good little boy and Jenn is such a brave and strong mommy! I admire how good of a mom she is already and how she is just so comfortable with the baby; I can only hope I am that strong!

It will be so great to watch him grow up into a cute little Manny (that's a scary thought! haha jk, Manny you know I love you!)
