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

The mailman just reminded me that decos and Add&Pass books might be less costly to mail if they are sent as media mail. It’s just a few days slower than first class. Be sure to ask which is less expensive for the book you are sending; sometimes…Continue

Hi Carolyn,

On Monday you said," you were having Deco withdrawals" so I already have one in an envelope ready to mail out today!

I will send you Boozy Barb's Deco in a separate envelope today too, ok?

Thank you.

Hi Laura,

Ok, I will send you 2 Decos that Kayenderes started.

Thank you.

i DON'T WANT ANY DUE TO I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED BACK A FULL ONE AND I'VE SENT OUT MANY AND SENT HOME MANY.   ???   MY BIG QUESTION IS WHERE DO THEY GO?  

Comment by Laura Urbano on October 5, 2018 at 6:25am

Hi Norma, you can send me a couple. 

Comment by Carolyn Cline on October 5, 2018 at 5:51am

I’m up for either Boozybarb’s or Kayenderes’ (or both) if they haven’t been requested.

Hi Friends,

I have 5 Decos ready to mail out.

Please let me know if anyone would like them next.

Two of them just need ONE person to finish them (one from Carolyn "Make your Mark Deco" and the other from Bonniediva "Idols and Icons".)

Three are just starting with interesting themes: Countries and Flags and Vintage Recipes from Kayenderes. One from Boozy Barb "Do whatever you like".

Please let me know and maybe they can go out in tomorrow's mail or on Tuesday.

My creative block has started to thaw just today. Hold on, mes amies, there IS hope!

Hate to say it, but it’s nice to know I’m not the only one who experiences this. I have been cutting stencils andmaking envelopes in the meantime. 

Are people still cranking out new decos? I think I have only done three so far.

Hi Carolyn, Bonniediva, and  Linda,

Hope you are all doing well.

I have some 3Decos to pass along as soon as I work on them.

One was started by Carolyn "Make your Mark"(arrived today from Ruth Giles) 

I will post to the group once they are done, ok?

Hugs

I am having artists block.  I've gotten 2 decos to work on. I'll get them out soon I promise. I'm just having a blip on the creative side if you know what I mean.
