Hearts and maps go together so well, speaking wordlessly of the places you love or that have significance to you. There are tons of happy DIY projects with maps on pinterest. See here and here. So I got a US atlas and world atlas at Goodwill, about $2, cut out hearts of our places of birth and places we’ve lived, and put together a shadow box using one I’ve had stashed forever and a bit of blue painted artboard. It is personal and colorful and goes beautifully in a memory filled gallery.
It also makes a terrific gift!

Real mail is completely wonderful; a way to send someone tangible love without having to buy a plane ticket. It is very personal to send and heartwarming to receive. Go drop a postcard in the mail and make someone’s day!
A little while ago I found this packaged in my mailbox. Could it be? A paper camera?
We put it together…
And now to try it! How long does one expose film through a pinhole shutter? I’m excited.
