As you may recall, late last year I bared my soul and revealed that I don't own a glue gun.
It turns out I do. I just can't remember why. I must have bought it years ago for some specific project and then never used it again. It resurfaced recently while I was 'organizing.'
My comprehensive organizational efforts eventually dwindled down to more of a micro-organization in which I managed to incorporate a little sewing + hot gluing project too.

For someone who sews, I am sorely lacking in the pincushion department and that can get downright hazardous as I use some very large and somewhat dull needles for my etsy shop packaging. I'm constantly dropping them and they quietly roll away, biding their time until they decide to reappear somewhere ... unexpected.
(I always look before sitting down in the Doily Factory.)
Now those needles have a home of their own. I made the world's tiniest pincushion (tutorial here), added a teeny vintage mother-of-pearl button and hot-glued the whole thing to a vintage spool of thread.
Hope 2011 is going smoothly for you so far.
