DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.

I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford the postage. Then, the DECO world sort of died out. I’d like to see if any of you are interested. 

Let me know if you have questions! Hugs, Bonniediva

I enjoyed working on the Corn deco. Thanks, Kayenderes, for giving me an excuse to carve a rubberstamp!

I had forgotten I started the triangles deco!

I have returned the completed potatoes deco to Boozy Barb. It only had 1 and a half pages empty so I filled it up.

Howdy Everyone!  Working down on a large pile of mail art from the summer months.  I'll be mailing out the following Decos this week:

1) Bonniediva's GLAMOUR DECO

2) Carolyn Cline's TRIANGLES DECO

3) Jayne B. Lyons' DAYS GONE BY DECO

DECOS are funny to work on!

Yesterday, I received Bonniediva's (Romance and Love ) Deco from Melissa and Gin's Deco from Bonniediva.

I have worked on Both of them so now they are ready to mail to someone else.

On Bonniediva's deco Boozy Barb, Melissa and I have worked on it.

On Gin's deco only Bonniediva and I have worked on it.

If you would like them, let me know.
