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 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.

I'm going through decal creative block as I have been sent a blank one and somehow doing the first page has me staring at the blank page with a blank look and empty mind.

Can someone please tell me who made this Deco?

It has no name or return address. I want to write it in before I send it along.

Thanks.....

I  still have two more Decos to pass along.

Anyone wants them?
