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

Someone said they wanted triangles.  Anyone want to contribute to Carolyn Cline's triangle book next?

Yes, and thank you to all participants who fill my Corn Deco. 

Lovely work and this being my 2nd.  They are well received. 

Stay Healthy and in a great Peace.  Everyone...........Kayenderes & Aunty

I enjoyed working on the Corn deco. Thanks, Kayenderes, for giving me an excuse to carve a rubberstamp!


Just finished making and mailing out a new deco to someone in the group. Hope you all will have fun with it!

I had forgotten I started the triangles deco!

I have returned the completed potatoes deco to Boozy Barb. It only had 1 and a half pages empty so I filled it up.

Howdy Everyone!  Working down on a large pile of mail art from the summer months.  I'll be mailing out the following Decos this week:

1) Bonniediva's GLAMOUR DECO

2) Carolyn Cline's TRIANGLES DECO

3) Jayne B. Lyons' DAYS GONE BY DECO

DECOS are funny to work on!
