Glue gun mat

Gosh it is a long time since I blogged about something. The reason being I have been having problems with my finger. I am not able to put pressure on it so typing has been a bit painful and so has dollmaking. Hopefully it will be sorted out soon. But I find ipad is easier to use so I am going to blog about this glue gun mat which I found the other day in our craft store briefly. I am not affliated to it in any way so I don't gain anything from this but just thought I would share. Sometime ago when I was having problems with spilling beads and wasting time constantly trying to pick them up from the floor, Linda suggested that I buy a bead mat on which the beads stick and then I won't be losing them.  Well I meant to buy it but didn't get round to doing it. However the other day I found this glue gun pad in our craft store, it says I can pour out glue on this mat and I can clean it easily as the glue just peals off once it is dry. Now you know I use  little quantities of glue in my projects a lot, so I am constantly using bits of paper or little bottle lids to pour it out into so I thought this pad was a good idea. While using it, I found that little objects sort of stick to it as well and don't fall off. So hey presto found it works for little beads as well perfectly. I have a sneaking feeling that the bead mat and the glue gun pad could be the same thing but just being sold under 2 different names. Whatever it is thought I would share as I like things that have a multipurpose use.
