It’s WAR.

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 9, 2009

I think Eric found out that sticking produce stickers on your spouse’s things is actually fun…


I found this on my shoe yesterday!!

I picked up our house phone and dialed his cell phone. Eric answered his cell and I simply said, "I know what you did."


Naturally, I got him back…


I put one on his key chain this morning. Sure enough, 5 minutes after he left the house I got a call, from some creepy man…"You may have won this battle but you won’t win the war…."


Started off my Monday just fabulously.

It gets better my friends, oh yes, it does. Better than I ever imagined.

A reader named Jo, pointed me to this website where Barry Snyder from Erie, Colorado, makes Produce Sticker ART.

You just can’t make this stuff up!

Some of his amazing works of art…


Look familiar?


Barry encourages you to MAIL him your produce stickers and he will use them in his works of art!

He writes,

S.O.S. Foundation (Save Our Stickers)

I ask you to pause for a moment, and think about the humble food sticker. Performing his (or her) appointed duty without complaint. Without these noble stickers our food distribution system would utterly collapse! Modern Society would simply starve to death!

And yet, once they arrive at their new home, reveling in the successful completion of their noble mission, these stickers are callously cast away, fated to some foul-smelling landfill! Is this fair? Is this right? NO! I say they deserve better. Now there is hope!

S.O.S. the Save Our Stickers Foundation provides a new home and a meaningful purpose to these unassuming stalwarts of our supermarket lifestyles. Won’t you please help? If you could find the compassion in your heart to simply peel these valiant warriors off the skins of your preferred produce and then place them, sticky side down, on a piece of notepaper (paper, not plastic) they can live as artwork, (united with thousands of fellow food stickers as part of a symbiotic visual presentation), bringing joy to young and old alike.

Please send your stickers to:
Barry “Wildman” Snyder
POB 301
Erie, CO 80516

With you there is hope!


It just doesn’t get any better than this folks. Personally, I would die happy if he did one for OSG. ;)

Produce sticker lovers UNITE!

What’s the strangest art you have ever seen?

In my old university town, there was this huge display of garbage art. People picked out pieces of trash out of the bins and made it into art. It was quite fabulous.

Of course, we can’t forget Spencer Tunick’s naked people art.


In other news:

  • Do not put the roasted chickpeas into Tupperware before they are fully cooled. I did, and my batch went soft. I have been sprinkling the softened chickpeas onto salads and it is great!
  • Congrats to Caitlin from Operation Beautiful and HTP for her Foodbuzz award!!!! :D :D :D
  • Project Feed me items are up for week 5! There is also a HUGE giveaway to enter for awesome girlie prizes.
  • Got in a great 45 min. elliptical workout + baked for 9 hours today. Now I’m off to do yoga for my back and my core work! Then I am going to pass out on the couch I hope!!!!!
  • Stay tuned tomorrow for a new Variety pack including my two NEWEST flavours- Empower and Present!!

Hope your start to the week was HEALTHY and GLOWING! :)

OMG Food sticker art?!? Who woulda thought!


Leah @ L4L November 9, 2009 at 7:18 pm

Ugh, I had the same thing happen with my chickpeas. I thought I did something wrong but apparently not. Mental note added.


Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) November 9, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I agree an OSG produce sticker poster would be fantastic!


Diana November 9, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Ahahaha I love the sticker war.


Vanessa (Last Night's Leftovers) November 9, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Haha, love the food sticker art! Genius.


kilax November 9, 2009 at 7:35 pm

Hee hee! You and your husband are so cute! :)


Amanda (modernation) November 9, 2009 at 7:38 pm

Love it. And how great that you guys eat so much produce to have all those stickers to play with!


Mellissa November 9, 2009 at 7:39 pm

You guys are too cute! There is a statue outside of the University of Wisconsin football stadium that looks like a huge penis made of footballs. It makes me laugh every single time I see it!


Mama Pea November 9, 2009 at 7:45 pm

2 things of note:

1) We had an Econ teacher in high school that liked to rub “himself” against the podium. One day a couple guys put produce stickers on the podium so that they would stick to the teacher’s junk. He stepped away from the podium and was “Ripe and Ready to Eat.” I can’t make this stuff up.

2) I always dump my leftover chickpeas onto a baking sheet and stick them under the broiler for a few minutes. Watch them though, they’ll burn!!!



Cynthia (It All Changes) November 9, 2009 at 7:45 pm

Sticker art is awesome. The most interesting art I’ve ever seen is carpet used as a medium. Interesting moder art.


Kristy November 9, 2009 at 7:56 pm

That sticker art is crazy!
I think it is so important to stay playful with your spouse.. you can’t take life too seriously because everyone has little “annoying” habits and if you can make light of them, your relationship will just continue to grow!


Bethany November 9, 2009 at 7:58 pm

I love the sticker art!! That is amazing!!


Andrea November 9, 2009 at 8:24 pm

Haha too funny! Did you go to University in Guelph? There’s a garbage dinosaur here… “Garbosaurus Rex”!


theskinnyplate November 9, 2009 at 8:25 pm

The art sticker project looks amazing. People are so creative and talented. Hope you win the war with Eric!


Marci November 9, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Ha ha, my hubby and I are silly just like that. I am looking forward to the variety pack! :)


Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty November 9, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Lesley Living Life November 9, 2009 at 8:58 pm

Produce sticker art … who knew?? Ha … that’s neat.


Katie November 9, 2009 at 8:59 pm

Wow that artwork is beautiful. I wish I was that talented. I usually leave mine in the sink ;) What a fun bonding game for you and the hubby!


Estela @ Weekly Bite November 9, 2009 at 9:07 pm

rebecca lustig November 9, 2009 at 9:12 pm

Allison November 9, 2009 at 10:08 pm

You guys are just too cute! lol
that art is pretty sweet.

I went on the treadclimber for the first time at the gym today, LOVED it!


Jolene November 9, 2009 at 10:13 pm

There was an exhibit at the art gallery in my city, in which a person covered everything with tomato paste (a giant table, chairs, and probably 1 hundred household items). All covered completely with dried tomato paste.

Why? I don’t know.


Kerrie November 9, 2009 at 10:17 pm

Talk about LOL funny!! I love how you turned an annoying habit into something that is fun and connecting to your husband. Your ideas continue to amaze me .. keep up the motivating good work!


Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl November 9, 2009 at 11:13 pm

That is SO fun about the produce stickers!! And the art is super cool!!! :-)



Beth November 9, 2009 at 11:22 pm

This post cracked me (and my husband ;)) up! Thanks for putting a smile on my face! :)


Whit November 10, 2009 at 12:08 am

ahahahaha, I love it!


Alex November 10, 2009 at 12:12 am

fantastical! i can just imagine the sneaky voices over the phone!
i’ve seen some pretty wild post it note installations (… the naked art is wild! imagine you were sightseeing and happened upon hundreds of naked people downtown? oh my!


Erin @ Living and Loving In L.A. November 10, 2009 at 12:53 am

I was going to ask you if you’ve heard of him! My boyfriend loves his art and wants to buy one for his kitchen.
Personally, I think it would be way more fun to engage in a food sticker war myself!!!


Stella @ EcoStella November 10, 2009 at 1:48 am

The travelling sticker cracks me up. My parents have a similar joke, but they use those antenna toppers from Jack in the Box. You’ll randomly find them in shoes or taped to a computer monitor…it’s crazy! Just when you least expect it you’ll open your jewelry box and find a Christmas Jack :)


Tania November 10, 2009 at 3:16 am

That sticker art is insane! I should send him all of my stickers instead of leaving them on the kitchen counter/sink! *blushes*


Melinda November 10, 2009 at 7:03 am

Nice war! Sounds like something me and Ryan would do. Usually it is dryer sheets stuck somewhere funny. Love the sticker art. I believe I have seen that before. As for stangest art, I am not really sure. My mother in law made us a mirror and the outside around the mirror was sqaures cut from aluminum soda cans. She got them from patients who visited the office where she worked…the irony being she works at a dentist office!


Paige @ Running Around Normal November 10, 2009 at 8:50 am

LOL you and Eric are too funny! It’s WAR, hehe
That website is pretty awesome! What a great use for produce stickers.


Tina November 10, 2009 at 10:17 am

Haha I love this! You guys are way funny. I went to the National Art Gallery in DC last week and saw some amazzzing pieces. My art history class is making me appreciate art so much more!


Alanna November 10, 2009 at 7:53 pm

haha Your fruit sticker madness cracks me up!
But I truly believe fun and games are so important to a happy and healthy relationship, who knows where my boyfriend and I would be without laughter :)


MyThy as in "Mighty" ;) November 12, 2009 at 10:19 pm

OMG! My fiance and I have been playing sticker wars for the past two years. He knows I have to have my bananer + almond butter for pre-run fuel. (He likes his plain & simple.) So one day he took the sticker off my Chiquita banana and stuck it on my Ipod. Next day before he was headed to work, I gave him his banana and stuck the sticker on his corporate credit card b/c I knew he would need to pay for lunch!

And the war continues! >=P
