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.

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 .

"Every genuine work of art has as much reason for being as the earth and the sun."

Well done Jayne; a worthy addition to the project. 

I find it interesting to see that, within the project, there is a good selection of hand made and computer made; single stamps and large sheets, old Yoko and the young.  If it had all been planned, from the start, as a type of sample or showcase as to what artistamps are all about, it couldn't have been better.

There is a good chance now that the documentation will be done earlier than I thought; maybe before Xmas instead of after.  When it is all done and dusted I will post it here on IUOMA.  Maybe it will stir up some enthusiasm and encourage a few more small projects. 

An atistamp project is not the easiest because stamp makers work in editions and large multiples and so are not much interested in doing one off, themed designs that are maybe outside of their usual interest. but I think the effort has been well worth the making.

Many thanks for joining in.

Hi Jayne, I mailed a card to De Villo Sloan a while ago and left him a comment this morning to ask if he has received it. This is his reply:

"idk - send a written query to Jayne Lions. Very important: Mark "Attention Dw/" Indicate to Jayne to contact me on FB (after 11 pm ETS please). Instruct Jane to send you a card."

Thanks

Jayne Wow your mail art package revived my spirits so much this morning -- took a C- day and shot it up to at least a B+. I love all the little bits and pieces. Especially the soda bottle with the poppy stamp! I am half way through my healing, according to the docs. Mail art speeds it up! Thank you!

No worries.  I am an exceptionally disorganized mailer as I often forget to log what I've sent and decide better safe than sorry and send people two things.... but then again sometimes am sure I sent when I didn't. I believe I sent something to you a few days ago but mail is sooooooo slow between Canada and the US these days.  It is odd that things get to European cities faster.

Hello Thanks Jayne.
