Mickie_G is the “Glue Gun Slinger” Contributor on Squidoo!

glue_gun_slingerToday we’re happy to introduce you to Mickie_G. She’s our “Glue Gun Slinger” Contributor on Squidoo!

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Basically I will corral lenses with projects that feature GLUES of all kinds. If you look up “glue” in a thesaurus, you will find words like these: adhesive, fixative, gum, paste, cement, epoxy, riveted, and (my personal favorite) stickum. So, that means my herd might include mosaics, decoupage and book repair. If a lensmaster uses an adhesive of any kind creatively, then I will lasso it in.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
You had me at “glue”. I have learned a lot about glue in my time on this planet. It probably started when I got in trouble for eating paste in kindergarten. But seriously, I fell in love with glue when I began to repair books. I learned the different qualities that this substance possesses that are good and, yes, bad.

Who had the most influence in your life?
My husband has had the most influence on my life. I learned from him that one should remember to “think out of the box”. This gentlemen has spent a lot of time showing me how to use tools and has encouraged me to think for myself. I also appreciate it when he pays attention and takes my suggestions seriously. In other words, he won’t go to Home Depot without me.

    If you look up “glue” in a UK dictionary, you might well find associated words like these: addict, solvent abuse, crime, losers. But that’s another story (or even future lens!). Nice little introductory piece.

    I learned to repair books and book bind when I was at university -but we never used a glue gun! I love collage and lots of crafts that need glue like woodwork. I love this niche.
