The Life of Jennifer Dawn: DIY Map Art

DIY Map Art

I don't think I've ever shared with you where I live. Sure, I've openly professed to being a Southern girl, but I've never been more specific than that. I've always referred to places mentioned on the blog as "a local amusement park", "the zoo", "a park"...

I've never said Dollywood, Knoxville Zoo, or Fountain City Park. Leaving out specifics gave me some sort of sense of anonymity since I am so open with other parts of my life. So...why am I using specifics now? Well, I recently accepted a position as a contributor on the Knoxville Moms Blog, and that makes it pretty obvious where I live. Yes, I am currently a Tennessee girl who was born in West Virginia and raised in Georgia.

The places we visit and live play such a big role in our lives and impact a part of who we are as people. Wouldn't it be fun to create something for your home that honors that part of your life. Here's a creative way to make personalized pieces of artwork that show off the places that are important to you...

 Happy creating!

  1. This is a really good idea! I think we may need to do this since we are a military family and always moving around.

    1. That is a fantastic idea! It could be an ongoing piece that you add to over time. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congratulations on your appointment. Those people at Knoxville Mom's Blog know their stuff.

    Beautiful art work. We travel 6 months of the year and The Kids love helping out with the navigation (albeit via GPS). I know they'd love to have a visual reminder of where we've been. I'll definitely be trying this out.
