I got the idea off Pinterest.
It makes me really happy
to look at these reminders of the places
where I've lived and loved and grown.
I have been so formed by all the places and people that have been homes for me.
I printed the maps off of Google Images.
I bought the frames at Goodwill for $2 a piece
and spray-painted them all cream.
I cut watercolor paper,
which has a nice weight and texture,
into squares the same size as the frames.
I made a heart stencil out of cardboard,
traced it onto the paper squares,
and cut the hearts out.
Placed the paper over each map and framed.
Roughly 2 hours start to finish.)
