And here's is Peg's winning poem:

GlueArts in My Shopping Cart - by Peg Berry

Oh, what’s a crafty gal to do?
Without her handy dandy GLUE?
[I always have on hand a few
… in case I run out … wouldn’t YOU?]

The first is the Glue Glider Pro
For crafts—the ONLY way to go!
You’ll find none better, this is so,
If you search high or you search low!

My scrapbook pages must have ribbon,
It’s not an option – it’s a given!                            
And I admit that I’m in heaven, with
GlueArts Adhesive JUST for ribbon!

What’s that you say? You need more tack?
Extreme Adhesive’s got the knack
In stickiness, it does not lack,
It is the best, and that’s a fact!

Which GLUE is first in all our Hearts?
What fills up all our shopping carts?
For crafting, it’s a vital part!
Without a doubt, it is GLUEARTS!

Congrats to you Peg and thank you for the fun poem! We loved it!! We'd like to thank everyone who sent in their poems...we'll definitely have to do this again. Tune in tomorrow...we'll share some of our favorite honorable mentions. Peg...please email us at Gluegirl@gluearts.com with your info!
