Nancy Bell Scott's feels like a 'make it yourself' map of mailart

I love getting a smorgasbord of mailart pieces and Nancy's 'hardly noticeable' mail art was a delight to slip from the side of the envelope.  The envelope, so beautifully crafted and topically appropriate... I hated to cut into it, but then I noticed that it was already opened (I don't think anything was taken, I hope not) but the pre-slitted slit helped me feel OK about disturbing things.  I love being able to move things around and create different stories with contents!  The colour sensibility is so perfectly Nancy too. I love it all.  Thank you.

Rebecca, hope it is ok that i am hopping on your blog.  I also received an envelope from Nancy Bell. Similar in grace and asemically pleasing. The envelope back is a map of Hungary and Yugoslavia, my grandparents birth places. And Nancy, no such thing as late. Thanks.

Yes I got a similiar generous mail, very nice!  Rebecca I love your sentence "...move things around and create different stories with contents", so true and inspiring.
