Last year I joined a Canadian altered book Yahoo group, as I was interested in altering books. At the time, there wasn't too much book altering going on but there was a round of decos in the works. I LOVE decos, so I set one up for myself and signed up to work in a few.

For anyone not familiar with decos, they are hand made books in any fashion with a specific theme that the owner chooses and which travels around to other artists interested in working in, decorating, that deco. Clear as mud right? LOL

These ar pics of my deco that finally came home in March and I just finished scanning and putting together last night. Not much time for these thing til now and I have a few decos and hand made books that need bindng so now's the time.
