I haven't had any giveaways in a while, so I think it's about time! I had a wonderful time in San Francisco at the Renegade Craft Fair and it was fantastic seeing returning customers and meeting new friends. I love maps, vintage travel brochures, plotting points, and day dreaming about these places. Perhaps it's rooted in the family road trips we took when we were younger. We were allowed to sit in the front seat only if we were to help navigate (or if we were fighting!). Before our smart phones and GPS systems, we had to plot points and plan. Last year, when I drove to San Francisco from Chicago with two friends, we stopped in Nebraska to debate a detour to Southern Utah's Goblin Valley and if we would have enough time. Being smart phone-less at the time, we had to figure it out the old fashion way with time we had and the miles we would need to drive. It worked out perfectly and felt entirely archaic, yet accomplished. So, here is the first poster in a series of many inspired by the sense of adventure and travel! And yes, it's the fine state of California.
