Does any of you lovely readers do any form of paper crafts? I personally love making decos. So what exactly are decos?
Decos are booklets with about 6 pages. The maker of the booklet decorates the cover, and then sends it on to a swapper (or penpal) who swaps decos too. They decorate a page, pass it on, etc. This goes on until the booklet is full. The person who signs the last page returns it to the maker, or if the maker started it for someone else, to that person. Everyone who signs includes their address or e-mail address, so the receiver can make thank you decos for them!
A deco can have a theme (like colours, celebs, Blythe, pin ups,...) or it can be unthemed. It's basically scrapbooking by mail! And who doesn't like to get mail?
There are lots of deco groups on Yahoo. One of my favourite groups at the moment is Sparkling Deco Divas.
The deco you see here is one I made last week. As you can see I use all kinds of things to decorate the pages. I love ribbon, thread and glitter!
I am currently working on something I came up with some time ago, where I can combine my love for decos and making something you can actually put on the wall. It's still in process though, so more about that when I finished my first piece of art!
