Martha Stewart Map Frames

Martha Stewart Map Frames

Stores around town have changed over their windows to feature cozy wool sweaters and a few rainstorms this week lead us to believe that fall might be around the corner.  It’s been a record breaking hot summer, and we’ve made the most of it by enjoying vacations with friends and family.  We thought it would be a great idea to put on our crafting caps and discover artistic ways to preserve our vacation memories.  Below are some of our favorite ideas.

Take a road trip?  Martha Stewart gives us a fun idea for turning our road trip maps into art.
