Happy Birthday, Aleene! 85 happy years!


OK, I swiped this picture from my friend PattieWack’s blog, I couldn’t resist!

Look at her back in the day, doesn’t she look so happy and proud? I want to be Aleene!!! Think of all the wonderful things Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue has held together over the years. Read Pattie’s blog entry today about Aleene, – here is a mini-excerpt:

“This is one courageous business woman who has stuck with her ambitions and pioneered the crafts industry as we know it today. Her determination and promotional skills led to regular local TV segments in the late 1940s, when TV was in its infancy. You probably have a bottle in your house right now, of the famous craft glue with her name on it. The inventor sold her the rights to the formula, and with her marketing savvy, the famous gold bottle became a big seller, and Aleene’s Tacky Glue still sells all over the world.”
– Pattie Donham

Leave a Happy Birthday comment here for Aleene and I’ll make sure it gets passed on to her through my crafty connections. I’ll draw one name to win a jar of Crafty Chica glitter AND a bottle of Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue.


Happy Birthday, Aleene! 85 years! You inspire all of us!

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂

P.S. Check out my new book and product line!

Love & light,

  1. Happy Birthday! I loved your Creative Living Show back in the day. Your Tacky Glue was a revelation! To think I’d been using runny school glue up until I learned about your product. Thanks for all the creative inspiration!

  2. Aleene, if it weren’t for you, more than half of my creations would have to hold themselves together – and well, that just wouldn’t work out. Happy birthday! You rock!

  3. Happy Birthday Aleene! You introduced me to crafting and for that I am forever grateful! Crafting also bonded my Mother and I, that was great. So, thank you for your show and your products. I wish for you every happiness!
