Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
February 2018
My Website:
http://https://mailartbyjayne.weebly.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I didn't know about mail art until I found a book about it at a secondhand shop. Immediately I was fascinated with the whole idea. At the time I was just delving into mixed media art, vintage collage and altered art - but I knew that I would eventually want to give mail art a try.

* I like vintage valentines, greeting cards and all kinds of ephemera. I'm cool with anything - vintage images, pop art, humor or anything you’d like to send me.

[DISCLAIMER: Life gets in the way, so I'm a bit slower than I'd like to be with producing art, and sending out mail. But I will get around to responding. Blogging about the mail I receive and send is enjoyable to me, and it's no doubt another reason why I'm a slow mail artist. Blogging is not everyone's 'cup of tea.' I find that it helps me to brush up on my writing - another creative outlet for me.]

About Me

Howdy, this is Jayne!

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but have lived in Minnesota for over 20 years. My husband and I have been married for over 28 years, and we have five children and one grandson. We have two Yorkshire Terriers, Randy & Rose.

I am a lifelong collector, treasure hunter and history buff. I especially love to collect ephemera (as a teen - many, many years ago - I used to collect matchbook covers and stamps). I have my original stamp album, and I still collect stamps today. 

I am a former Children's Librarian. I currently sell vintage goods and collectibles online (and at local flea markets / antiques malls from time to time). I have a shop on ETSY - www.accumulationsbazaar.shop Recently became a Journey Coach with Fun Stampers Journey - www.funstampersjourney.com/JBLyons.

Victorian DaDa

DeVillo Sloan inspired me to start this group, and I'd like help defining it, and would love to see other examples besides my own. This group is dedicated to mail art, perhaps with a time period theme (Pre-Raphaelite, Flapper, Byzantine, Edwardian, even modern day) of an elegant nature spiked with a Dada / Surreal twist. Elements can be added as creatively as the artist would like.... Or taken out. Nature is prevalent due to the Romantic floral effect and poetry (often cut & paste) is…See More
