I love it when I set out on creative projects to discover that the elements I need are already in my home! I recently received a map from Maps.Com
. (You might have seen my post on Saturday
.) I love having a map in my home. Someday my husband and I would love to have a HUGE map that pretty much covers an entire wall where we can pin the places our family has traveled to. I know it would give me an itching to travel even more! For now, I’m content to even have a map in our home. This map we received has Wallzilla on the back which is a very cool self-adhesive. I stuck it on a canvas and hung it, but you can even stick it directly on the wall. I love that it’s not permanent so adjustments can be made if you don’t get it on straight. 🙂 You can read my Today’s Mama review
as well as my review on the Maps.Com blog
for more details.
I was inspired this week by Beach House In The City to dress up a cork board that we acquired for free this summer. I used the same red stain that we used on the chalkboard and stained the edges. Then I took some gray material and pinned it to the cork. It’s serving as my photography inspiration board right now. I think I need a bigger board but this one will do for now!
Earlier this week, I finished designing my 2012 Calendar which is now available for pre-order, by the way. Can’t wait to have this new practical piece of art hanging in my kitchen!
I have seriously been in a creating mood. I haven’t necessarily felt like I’ve had the time lately, but rather that I need to make the time. Have you been in a creative mood lately?
Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peak Friday. Be sure to enter my giveaway for 100 Devotions, 100 Bible Songs. It would make a great Christmas gift!
