Welcome to my new Saturday’s Are Fun Series. I’ll be posting on Trends (Fashion, Home, Scrapbooking), Vintage/Flea Market Finds, Altered Art, and other fun things every Saturday.

Trend Watch: Everyday I spend about 15 minutes or so, checking out what my friends are pinning on Pinterest. “Map Love” is popping up over and over and over again.  There are many ways you can use maps in your scrapbooking and art. Here is a closer look at this emerging trend:
