Inspiring

I absolutely love this. I found doing this so therapeutic and absorbing. I don't often get the free-time to really lose myself in a project but making the time to do this was a wonderful experience. I remembered some quite obvious experiences such as the births of my children and my wedding, but when I thought really deeply about all the treasures I could put on my map I remembered some really sweet things like my brother sticking up for me at school and my first sleepover at a friend's house. Not everything has an obvious way to be crafted and often I simply took inspiration from the colour of the feeling that came with a particular memory. I would highly recommend this. I can imagine this would make an excellent resource for a school art class, too.

A work of Art That Will Last Forever

I've been in love with map making since I was a wee child, drawing treasure maps on paper and then staining them with coffee and tea bags to make them look authentic! Personal Geographies isn't about making maps of actual geographical places, but of your own mind and personal experiences. Some people may find it a bit too "spiritual" but I love the concept. I have created my own map and decorated it using paints and stamps (that the book instructs you how to make). It looks stunning and something I want to pass on to my children. I definitely think it is worth the price and perfect for using on a tablet.
