History of Mod Podge
The inventor of Mod Podge, Jan Wetstone, first developed Mod Podge in the 1960s in her garage. The name of this now-famous mixture came from the term "Modern Decoupage." She tested it on all kinds of surfaces; she even decoupaged a Volkswagen Beetle using bed sheets!

SO WHICH ONE DO I BUY? What Mod Podge do you always have on hand? Isn't this a little bit crazy and totally cool all at the same time?
So I stole this picture from my Blogger Buddy, who actually inspired me to write this post, MIMI over at 4 Living In France.
I'm so going to get me some of this Mod Podge. Crafter buddies look out, I'm on a mission to make crafts as grand as MIMI's! I really don't think I can get grander then hers though!

**Feel free to send me any tutorials. UMM Yeah cause I'm not that crafty to figure out, once I buy this stuff, how to actually use it!!**
