You’ve probably seen it – that little gold bottle with the white lettering. I first encountered Aleene’s Tacky Glue when I was in Girl Scouts. I would create great projects using craft foam, cotton balls, Popsicle sticks and more. While the projects changed each week, one thing remained constant – my mom and the other troop leaders would set out bottles of Aleene’s Tacky Glue for us to use.
Little did I know back then just how influential this product is in the world of crafting. Aleene’s Tacky Glue is part of a huge line of crafting products which originated with Aleene Jackson. Aleene love for crafting and creating was was passed down to her daughters. One of those daughters, Tiffany Windsor, took her love for crafting a step further and launched Cool2Craft in 2009. The Cool2Craft live show and website provide crafty tips and tutorials that help foster creativity and foster community. In 2010, Tiffany and FaveCrafts teamed up for the Cool2Craft newsletter, which mails twice a week.
The Cool2Craft newsletter pulls the website, video channel and more to bring you unique crafts every single week. Every Tuesday, you’ll find featured videos from the most recent Cool2Craft live web broadcast and exclusive projects from the design team. From recycle crafts by EcoHeidi Borchers to creative polymer clay projects from Candace Jedrowicz, there’s never a shortage of ideas. The Friday issue of Cool2Craft features more great projects, opportunities to enter to win prizes and FaveCrafts tutorials you might have missed.
