My mom brought these to me a while back. 2 of my STICKER books!!! I can't even tell you how much i LOVED stickers back in the 80's. I remember going to hallmark and they had rolls and rolls of them hanging from wooden dowels and you'd tear off those little sheets covered with adorable sticky goodness.
I hadn't seen these books in years so imagine my delight when I opened the one and found an entire pouch FULL of never before stuck-down-stickers meant for trading. Trading? Obviously, I wasn't really into trading, I was more into hoarding!!
Fuzzy teddy bears, ugly mice, weird hats, bicentennial stickers and do you see that afro goodness peeking out? OMG- Puffy Michael Jackson STICKERS!!!!!!!!!!!
My gosh, do you even remember him looking like this? And by "this" I mean: black with a nose!!
Top left is a hologram of MJ!! And "Mystiks Fan Club of America", it's full of squishy blue stuff that changes color when you press it- these were special stickers that I have an entire page devoted too and the blue stuff is STILL squishy and turns green when it moves around! Puffy silk heart stickers with glitter accents? Care Bears, Unicorns and Donkey Kong "high score" sticker- GET OUT!!! It's like a sticker time machine!
Proving how BIG TIME I was in the sticker community!
Nothing says 80's like LISA FRANK!
And, if that doesn't prove how hard core I was, I think this will... The Jewish Stickers, 'cause dude, we aren't Jewish! Didn't care, if it stuck, I had to have it!!!
Anything you collected as a kid? Do you still have it?
Happy Wednesday-it's raining here (and yes, I DID run in it!) I'm headed down to my studio to work on a DIY!
