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…See More

Thank you, dear artists, for your kind words, art, and thoughts, about my dad's passing away last week. You and my Art have been my consolation. I walk among you who have experience loss, and we rise together.See More

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
I'm from New Orleans, but now live in the wilds of the Midwest!
IUOMA has really kept me working and exploring my art.
Please send me your art, and I will always send you something in return!

Received your Easter Egg card in yesterday's mail and love it!  Glad to hear that the weather is improving in Illinois.  Last week was Spring Break here, but it sure didn't feel like it!  On Monday and Tuesday, it was foggy all day.  We had a rain storm on Tuesday night, and then the wind blew 45 mph on Wednesday afternoon.  At one point in time, there were 70 mph gusts.  What a mess!

Glad to see that you loved my last collage and are putting it on our inspiration wall!  Enjoy the Spring, which officially begins in a few days. - Gail

Thanks, Bonniediva! I did get your welcome package a few days ago, and am making you something in return :D

Thanks for letting me know that you aren't stressed if people don't post something right away.  You are correct about mail art being something to relieve stress.  Lord knows that I need all the stress relief I can get and mail art is one of the best things I know to bring my blood pressure down! - Gail

Thank you for the awesome zine and the great collage card!  I'm sorry that I haven't contacted you before now.  I received them on Monday (February 25). but have had a week that was crazy busy.  Will get something in the mail to you soon. - Gail Anderson

just print it out; The artist is Gene McCormick, an Illannoy resident. He does many panels (especially female faces), and then I work up a story and add words.
