15 Cool Map Crafts

I think most architects have a healthy fascination with maps. Buildings are part of the urban fabric and your design never exists in a vacuum, it’s part of its surroundings. So maps are important context. I have always liked looking at them anyway though and love figuring out the best route to take to get somewhere. And for whatever reason, I totally love the colors. Pastels aren’t usually my favorite, but in maps, there’s something magical about them. The school I got my masters at is also home to a huge map collection and they used to give away old out of date maps and charts in the library. That was my first experience using maps for other than their intended purpose. We’d put them in models, use them as texture and color, or even use them to symbolize grass or landscaping. So I have a soft spot for these kinds of projects and I thought that today, it might be fun to bring you some cool creative map crafts! And hey, since we all have maps on our phones now, feel free to recycle that old gas station map from 1985 that’s hanging out in your glove box (we all have one…) and turn it into something fabulous!

So this will be our first full summer at this house. Well actually our first summer with a yard! So that’s exciting. We were here last summer but arrived too late to really do anything other than maintenance and to realize wow, this is a lot of work! So this year we’re excited to spruce up our yard even more. We already dug up an overgrown area that was full of mint and ferns and reclaimed some more grass for O to play on. And we’re also on the lookout for some more ways to bring the outside indoors.

20 Beautiful Watercolor Projects

I’ve been seeing a lot of watercolor floating around these days. It’s so pretty and light and organic, it’s a nice contrast to the strong geometric patterns that are also so popular right now. I have always liked watercolor myself, I grew up watching my mom do it. She’s very good. But maybe I just haven’t spent enough time working with it, I don’t know, I feel like things never come out how I want them to. I’m kind of a type A organizing personality so it’s sometimes difficult to give up being exact and let go with artwork. But these beautiful etherial watercolor projects have me so inspired. I think it’s time to get out my brushes again! Give one a try yourself and let me know how it goes!
