A Hot Glue Gun Mess: Funny Stories, Pretty DIY Projects Reviews
WARNING: Graphic content and explicit material is included throughout this book. My tween who loves DIY and follows Mr. Kate on social media asked for the book for her 13th bday. We returned it after seeing that the stories shared throughout the book are R and even X-rated. Lots of graphic sexual content and adult themes. NOT a book for kids (even teens, in my opinion).
I love this book, I read it during school and tried my best to make it last a week because I swear I could have read this book in a day, beacause of all the pictures, but also because it’s so interesting to find out about Kate’s life and how seemingly innocent Kate SPOILER ALLERT ( had sex with tiger woods in a hotel next to Bill Clinton’s hotel) and many other things, I tried one of her diys and I love it, it’s obviously by the picture I provided, the ring had a cut off animal head, she said to use a craft knife to cut off the animal head but that was way too flimsy so I use a bread knife from my kitchen and it worked however there were some choppy bits so you could use like sand paper to smooth it down but I didn’t care because I was so excited to make them, that are a little impractical in the fact that they get caught on things especially if you wear sleeves. Overall I love this book and the stories and the diy’s that follow, and would highly recommend it.
If you are anything like me, I search the shelves at my local book store and find myself empty handed because of the lack of creativity that comes within the newest reading releases. Each DIY book contains the same projects, follows the same format, and at times feels like I'm reading the same text in each book. When branching out to autobiographies, the same exact story of loss and triumph are usually given with the exception of a new face plastered on the cover. Sometimes I feel as though with these categories, content has become unoriginal and the "true self" of people are lost between the lines of text they try to provide their audience for a positive and inspiring reaction. If you've found yourself in this same "reading rut" as I have, then I definitely recommend reading Mr. Kate's newest book release, "A Hot Glue Gun Mess".
As a long time fan and diy-enthusiast, I knew the Mr. Kate brand going in when I first bought the book. So I wasn't surprised to see the combination of familiar and unexpected when reading AHGGM. The familiar comes from the signature Mr.Kate diy projects, all of the wonderful ideas are unique and quirky and absolutely doable. I love that with every project there are suggestions or Do it Elsewhere's, maybe I don't need a new coffee table right now but I could sure use a creative vase for my own home or as a gift!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially loving how honest the author was with her personal life as she described how each craft pertained to a story in her life. This book was as much entertaining as it was a craft book. The crafts are pretty great I might add! One thing that is important to me in craft books is that their be a vast majority of different projects and she definitely hit the nail on the head with this one! Mr. Kate has lived up to her expectations we've all come to have and love from her online blog. The crafts range from super easy to those more difficult. Nothing would take you longer than a weekend to complete however. I highly recommend "A Hot Glue Gun Mess" to crafters of all stages!
Mr. Kate shares her creative drive and personal stories, no holding back here but a fun and lively composite of projects and her main squeeze, Joey, is a solid and necessary backdrop for her creative drama and success. She is silly but don't be fooled; she is a smart business woman with authentic talent.
Not an appropriate book for young readers. The book includes sexually explicit stories and profanity. Parents beware. Refer to the photo I've posted of the back cover:
