DECOS - Do you miss them?

Information

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've noticed that Add/Pass books are becoming more popular these days. Kinda like a deco. I love the freedom of being able to add anything I like.Continue

Hi Carolyn,

Hope you are doing well.

Received the Deco yesterday and it is now ready to go to someone else.

Hugs,

Norma

Thanks, Carolyn.  That's encouraging!

Just wondering - has anyone received a completed deco back?  How long did it take?

Hi Kayenderes,

I'm mailing you this book today.

I had a deco come back to me "insufficient postage" which was annoying as the post office had affixed the postage.  They looked at it shook their heads and said, "that postage is correct but the validating stamp covered the first digit so someone thought it was $.80 not $1.80.  They cleaned the stamp off, stuck it back in the post.  Hope for better luck this time.

Hi Carolyn,

You can send the two decos my way. Just make sure, I haven't worked on them.

Thanks!

Does anyone have any Decos to pass along? I can take two if I haven't worked in them. :)
