Custom Illustrated Maps and Dream Boards

Arkansas, United States

Announcement    Here you can find custom illustrated maps, homes, Latter-Day Saint temples, and more.

MY STORY:
This comes in two parts. The first part starts with Paislee. She's six.

She asks me pretty much on the daily to tell her about when I was young. What adventures I had with my brothers. What I did in school. What I liked to eat. Where I went on vacation. The questioning is endless.

Truth be told, most of my memories come from playing outside in our dust bowl yard in Tucson, Arizona. We built something north of 13 clubhouses throughout the years, picked fruit from all of my gramma's trees, and found countless treasures (see also: junk).

I wish I could just take her there in my mind (because the actual physical location looks nothing like it used to!) and show her where it all happened and what it looked like.

That's why I draw maps.

Even if I can't show my daughter exactly what it was like to be kid in the 90's, I can share small pieces of my memories with her, elaborate on my many adventures of eating oranges under trees and defeating dark ninjas on the trampoline, and allow her to cherish what I cherish about my childhood.

Part two:
As much as I love telling stories of my past with my kiddos, I am a futuristic kind of girl. Not the scifi type, but the type that looks to the future with hope and excitement.

I'm also very visual. Let's be honest, we all are to some extent. If you have goals and dreams but you don't read them/see them/review them, ain't nothing gonna happen.

Earlier this year, my sister made me write a bucket list. And for several weeks I looked at it regularly as I wrote down all my dreams. And during that time, I actually did a few!

Surprise surprise. See it, do it. Boom.

But now I don't because I'm not writing it down and looking at it everyday. So why not illustrate my bucket list so I can see it every day and it will be beautiful and totally worth displaying for all to see?! You see my point.

Bottom line here, cherish the past, look to the future, and do it in a beautiful way!

About GardnerLane

On Etsy since 2018

The more you see something, the more it's on your mind.

My daughter has a big love of hearing stories of when I was little. She loves to hear stories of our ancestors, too. She is someone who cherishes our past.

When I look back at my childhood, and all the stories that come along with it, sometimes I wish I could just show her what it all looked like. That's why I design maps.

I can draw out a space and tell my daughter, I grew up here, this was my favorite park, we built our (one of many) club houses under that tree. We can share in the memories together.

On the flip-side, I also illustrate dream boards and bucket lists, things that draw us to the future. I always say if you don't know where you are going, you won't ever get there.

By having a goal to actually look at and visualize, we all become more likely to accomplish "the thing."

I make beautiful drawings of where we came from and where we're going so that looking at them is delight. We can cherish our past and look toward the future!
