Stuck on You

I got this triptych of sticker postcards Magda designed for International Sticker Day This is such a clever concept — leave space for stickering and then add your own stickers in the white space. (Although Maggie’s sticker game is next level and she added stickers all over the cards.). Too cute.. You can see all of Magda’s Designs at Travel Trinkets Canada.

Do you add stickers to your postcards? I finally organized my stickers. Cards like this prompt me to think more about adding fun little sticky goodness to my mail.

Little science fact because the stickers on this card led me to look up the stickiest substance on earth. Here you go:

The tiny water bacterium Caulobacter crescentus secretes a sugary substance so sticky that just a tiny bit could withstand the pull from lifting several cars at once. With an adhesive force of nearly five tons per square inch, this “glue” is nature’s strongest.

Yes, I ended up looking up the slipperiest substance on earth, too. It’s called BAM. Don’t put that stuff on your cards or they’ll just be slip slidin’ away.

    Good idea. We need to try it in Russia.

      The picture frame with the coated front makes for a nice card design. Plus, she used a theme on each of the three cards.

    Those postcards are so cool!! I often run out of space on postcards and I never get a chance to put on stickers. This is a clever idea! Loved those fun facts and Paul Simon.

      A few years ago I started putting the stamps on cards first just because I would run out of space. So…stickers are tricky. I don’t tend to write a lot on postcards, but I use all the space.

      It’s funny how one piece of information leads to another and leads to another. Sticky. Slippery. And that Paul Simon song is so good. He really wrote powerful lyrics.

        I have to perfect my writing in postcards, write shorter that is. I love that waterfall of things, the string of things one can think of and then you do not know what was the initial thought.

          Waterfall o La Cascada. Qué hermosa manera de describir ese tipo de pensamiento.
