11 Inspiring Ideas For Using Maps and Mod Podge. Simplicity In The South.
It feels good to be back to the blog! This past week and a half have been quite eventful. Our oldest son got a new-old car, I got a new blog-worthy camera, and my husband and I attended my 20-year high school reunion.
Also, this past week, I’ve been finishing up a few projects in our youngest two boys’ shared bedroom. At the end of this month, Remodelaholic.com is having a link up party for

children’s bedrooms. What better motivation to get stuff done than a deadline?

Maybe it’s my love for typography or it could be my love of the color blue, but I’ve really been inspired by all the map themed boy’s rooms that I’ve seen on the internet. I already have a large, 69×48″ laminated world map on the wall above Mason’s bed.
I’ve been wanting to experiment with decoupage and maps. Later this week, I’ll show you a couple of projects that I did for the boys’ room. So without giving too much away, I wanted to share with you some fabulous diy-able ideas for using Mod Podge and maps. Here are a few that I’m coveting from Etsy.

    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. great points altogether, you simply received a emblem new reader.
    What would you suggest in regards to your post that you
    just made some days ago? Any positive?
