Moving on down the road....

When I was a kid my family moved around a LOT! My father worked for the government, so I spent my childhood moving. We also took weekend road trips and thus my father collected a lot of maps. As an adult I moved around pretty often also, living in New York, New Hampshire, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, California and Florida. IN addition to road maps, my parents subscribed to National Geographic Magazine. Every magazine comes with a cool map as large as a wall poster. Guess who ended up with all the maps?

Now it's time to use those maps up. I am using all the parts I can and then will recycle what is left. I am a fanatic when it comes to keeping things out of the landfills.

Here are some of the map buttons I made so far in 4 sizes. What map button would love to have? Just ask me. Maybe it is a favorite place you to live or a dream place you wish to move to. Let me see if I can find it for you and make you a button. Choose a Big 4" or Standard 2 1/4", my favorite Medium size 1 3/4" or a Tiny 1 1/4" button. You can find my map buttons HERE.


  1. When I was young we traveled a lot too. I love your map buttons!

  2. These are so neat! I am gonna get one!

  3. Gosh, thanks Raige! ...and you DID buy one! You live in New York but bought Asheville. I thought Asheville would sell pretty quick. Lots of artsy folks there. Thanks for your order.

    I LOVE the bags in your shop!
