Welcome to the last day of the State Pride Tour.  I have been over the top excited with all of the amazing projects each blogger has showcased this week.  If you are new here click over to day one to start the tour.


Karen is kicking today off with a burlap book box featuring Maryland’s state bird: the oriole.

Brittany from Pretty Handy Girl made her own rustic tray with a map embedded under glass.  Or you could hang it up to make it an art piece.

Traci from Beneath by Heart hails from Kentucky and has lived her whole life in the Bluegrass state.  She showed her Kentucky pride with a bottle cap art piece she made for her boy’s room.

I spent the first 18 years of my life in Illinois and yes indeed there are a lot of deer there.  Jen Rizzo made this Illinois Deer art that would be perfect for your winter display.

Amanda from Crafts By Amanda made some Wisconsin map coasters.  This is a simple project that could celebrate anyone’s state simply by changing out the map.

Well I sure hope you enjoyed this state pride series and you were inspired to show some pride for your state by replicating one of the projects featured this week.

If you have a state project you are willing to show off please come back on Monday for our State Pride Linky party.

  1. MICHIGAN! Home is where the mitten is…so true! If you are from MI and someone asks where you are from it is automatic to hold up you hand and point to the area on the hand where your city is located. While in Spain for five weeks as a college student I would hold up my hand also, explaining I was from Michigan. A crazy habit. Am I alone? Also, we have the books “Mitt the Michigan Mouse” and “M is for Mitten—A Michigan Alphabet”. So I would say the MI artwork is right on! I no longer live in MI but grew up in Northern MI and attended college there. I think I am still a Michigander at heart. If you have ever visited the lakeshores (northern especially) you would understand—God’s Country many say.

  2. The projects in this tour have been nothing short of amazing! Thanks for letting me play along Beckie!

  3. I have loved your state tour! As someone who lived in 7 states, my “home” state of WV will always hold a special place for me.
