Decoupaged Paper Mache Map Box

Decoupaged Paper Mache Map Box with Mod Podge

Today I’m using “Maps of the World” lightweight paper by Hazel & Ruby to help me create this useful (and road trip travel inducing) map box.  I LOVE this map paper.  I chose to focus on the South as much as possible (with some Northern spots on top) because I’m a Southern girl.  I’ve lived in Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama and Georgia.  I probably have […]

We look forward to the football season every year and all year.  I’m serious…all year.  For example, about a week after the season ends we start talking about spring training and going to watch our team practice.  We cheer and root for our favorite college team (so beloved by us that we named our […]

I’m super late to the ruffled wreath craft and didn’t even know it!  Somehow I’ve not noticed them or if I have they traveled to the, “I’ll probably never make that but I wish I would” category in my mind.  Inspired by the recently finding (or refinding) of this pinned project from 2010, I decided to make my own.  Making this ruffled heart wreath solved two problems […]
