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.”

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.
Peace, love, and glitter!
