Good. Better. Bestest! The Scotch exterior tape is well hidden in the hardware section of Wal-Mart. This stuff is deeeeluxe! I wanted to mount these hooks for measuring cups without drilling into my cabinets. This stuff claims it can hold up to five pounds and baby I believe it! I [...]
I am high on Glee. I have fallen madly in love with Scotch Command tape. (Spring cleaning has hit full force.) I put on heels Wednesday night and went dancing without my husband. (Okay, it was with my church, and we were dancing with handicapped adults in wheelchairs, but I [...]
