Painted Globe: Quick DIY

I have a thing for traveling. As of late, I've been really feeling the insatiable urge to go out and explore new horizons. Call it wanderlust I suppose. I also have a thing for globes.. but I have yet to find a large one for a decent price. Dara's mom surprised us the other day though with these $3 mini globes from Hobby Lobby that we were really excited about. We decided to draw on them with sharpie paint pens using fitting lyrics from Chicago by Sufjan Stevens. (One of my favorite songs, like ever). I'm going to be keeping this on my desk, but I think it'd look cute on a book shelf too.

  2. this is such a wonderful idea. this has actually inspired me! It might make a cute book stop. When I'm older, I want to do a fair bit of globe-trotting myself. I love immersing myself in culture and history.
