Inspiration Avenue theme for this week is "Community"
Here is a map of my world/community.
Places important to me:
my home
my neighborhood
my childrens homes
downtown art district,
coffee shops 
school where I work
community center
post office
thrift stores
junk stores
the lakes
the desert
the canyons
the mountains
my community.


  1. Oooh, I love maps! Lucky you to live in such an enchanting place! I love the cheery yellow, did you select that color because it's sunny all the time?

  2. How very very nice Gemma. My Dad was born in Glendale, Arizona. Great map, I love the way you laid it out. Have a great Sunday.

  3. I TOTALLY LOVE that you Sedona on the map and what an very cool idea!

  4. Lovely map Gemma, So how are you doing these days?

  5. What a great perspective on this challenge! Maps are so cool and you having incorporated what’s important to you make it have so much more meaning. This is such a great idea. I also love that you have labels and the compass adds just the right touch. Very nice.

  6. I've seen these maps before (here I think). I love the idea of doing such a map. Time to get this on my To-Do List.
