Around the World

Sunday, August 28, 2011

First off, I want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to my followers.  I looked today and saw a total of 500 Facebook followers (between this blog's page and my business page), 350 on Twitter, 50 on Networked Blogs, 330 on Google.... over 1200 followers.  I am astounded and so grateful.  You reading this blog is what keeps me writing it, so thank you - it means so very much to me.

I am totally, completely in awe of people's creativity.  There are so many ideas out there that just amaze me!  Lately, I've seen a lot of map projects: decoupage with maps, map art like pictured below, wallpapering with maps, etc.  Some of these photos show collections of maps, and others show how a room can be built around a map.  I hope you are as impressed as I was!

I didn't even know this was a map until I looked really closely:




This is a hand die-cut map.....amazing!



This reminds me of a post I did earlier this week on Gallery Walls:

I LOVE this idea for an older home with beams like this:

One lucky boy!









Love the colors pulled from the map:



This is probably my favorite, because it is so different:
