  11. I want the tweezers I dip a lot of plain metal brads into embossing glitter after heating them and my tweezers always stick leaving a flat spot or a spot that pulls away.

    It would be nice if it was made in another color other than pink or with less pink to appeal to men as well. I can see this being a cross gender product. The package is too pink for me and I am a female.

  13. What an ingenious idea!! Bravo, Bravo to you and everyone who helped create this saver from burnt fingers, you even devised different products for specific chores is just wonderful, you are on your way to victory. Congratulations!

    Are these available yet? I'm getting the website run-around trying to find out where I can buy some. I am in Utah if there is a store here that carries them

  22. Hello,

    They are not going to be available until January. I wish it was sooner.... I get emails everyday about them.

    I'll be shouting OUT-LOUD (lol) when they are on the shelves.

    Have a good on,


  23. It is January! Can we get a date and retail locations of where it will be available.

  24. Hi SS,

    I still don't have the list yet for Brick and Mortar stores.....UGH - believe me I am waiting too.

    I do have them at my etsy shop and I started a blog for them.

  25. Thanks Cathie! I ordered mine (3 sets)and added you to all my websites including face book......... Do you have a " glue gun helpers face book page?
    I thought you might want to know that when I did a search for glue gun helpers..... your etsy store did not show up. A store came up on Amazon that is why I ordered there. I'll try and help promote your store for you.
    Thanks again for creating such a great tools. Now i can drink my glass of cold h2o instead of putting my fingers in it!

  26. My Fingers will thank you cant wait to get these.

  27. LOVE the hot glue helpers. My husband bought them for my birthday! AWESOME! I've already made a house of cards, rabbit ear headbands and a flower pot looking creation from old magazines! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! GREAT JOB!

  28. I just got this off of HSN i have been wanting it since it came out. Last time I used my glue I got 2 degree burns and I was shocked I used it last night the rest of the stuff is great but the finger tips things are so small my finger went to sleep with them on before i glued ribbon around a 6×12 piece of paper they worked but could be bigger. Other wise if your big handed they may not work I hand man hands lol.I think the xl was left out of my package only got 3 need to be bigger.

  29. boohoo, can't find them in the UK so far ... could do with carrying these in our store here though.


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
