Again, I am new to the union. I believe “mail-art” may be broader than I thought. Initially, I thought that mail-art was creating art on envelopes, postcards, and letters. Please educate me. Thanks.

That's the best part! It can be anything. An artists interpretation sent through the mail. A lot of mail artists do what you mentioned. Collage, painting, poems, photography, making your own artist stamps. Recycling, carving your own rubber stamps, using commercial stamps.  Its all the things! However, there are people with special interests and they join groups to trade particular mail art or list it in their bio. Some like politics or animals or "obscure" things. I hope that helps. But whatever you like to do, don't be shy. Send some mail! I am always up for a trade of anything. I love it all!

Thank you so much, Amanda. Very helpful indeed. I will work on something and let you know. Thanks again. Stay well and safe.
