DECOS - Do you miss them?


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

Two Decos arrived while I was on vacation -- one started by Amber and send by Melissa. The other started AND sent by Melissa. I love them both and will get to work on them soon, I hope. I'm BURIED!

Hi Friends,

Years ago, like Bonniediva I too made Decos but then things kind of dwindled away. I wasn't going to join this group because I am ALWAYS BUSY but have decided to try it for a while. Thanks to Bonniediva , Carolyn and the others who wanted me to join.

So here I am. :)
