Custom Lakes that just finished......

Just finished these two custom maps, Lake Keowee located in South Carolina and Gull Lake in Minnesota. I do lots of custom maps for folks that want to have a map of their beloved lake. Great Valentine gift!

Take a look at my website, to find other maps that I have already completed. I call my maps "treasured maps" because most folks have that special body of water that they treasure. 

These maps make great gifts for the lake house owner, lake lover, or fisherman. I have over three hundred maps on my website. 

 If you would like to see more and read about my treasured maps go to There's a hidden mermaid in every maps!

Cartoon Rageous

I've taken a few days off after the holiday rush, but now I'm back.. To start the year off on the right bait, I added a few cartoons, some are new and some that I have used before. I must admit, I love bobbers and I cannot deny. Anyway, enjoy....

Check-out my vintage style lake maps. Best gift for the fishermen. I have over two hundred on my website that can be purchased right from the site, or I can do custom and personalizes lake, river or bay maps, too. I have maps of Lake Winnipesaukee, Table Rock Lake, Greers Ferry, Lake Lanier, Gaston Lake, Choctawhatchee Bay, Toledo Bend, Raystown, and many others. Oh yeah, I hide a tiny mermaid in the waters of all my maps that folks love to search for. Find out more interesting facts about my treasured maps by going to

I bought an action camera

In a few months, I'm going to Alaska. I know there will be plenty of beautiful landscape, waterscape and animal photo opportunities. So, I'm doing a little planning on what to take and on top of the list is my Canon 810 camera. I've been thinking that a Gopro camera would be a nice addition, but I'm not wanting to spend $300-$400. The next best option is a knock-off brand, such as an Akaso action camera EK700, which is waterproof. A friend of mine has one and recommended it to me.  
I just purchased the camera. The best thing, it was for less than $100. I also purchase a kit that included all kinds of accessories. 

Boy, is it small, but it feels like it's fairly good quality. I hope to do some fishing in Alaska and this camera will work well. Just think, being able to reel in a salmon while filming the action, can't wait. In a few weeks,  I may test this camera on my kayak. I will let you know how it goes. It may become my fishing camera!

Also, check-out all of the accessories. I believe that I could easily mount this camera to the cat and he would never know it.  

Hey, paddle over to my website, I paint beautiful lake, river and bay decor maps. Folks are discovering that these decor maps are wonderfully unique lake house maps, that become family heirlooms. Oh yeah, I hide things in the lake waters, such as a tiny mermaid/fish. Folks love to search for them. I call my maps, treasured maps because most folks have that special body of water that they treasure. My treasured maps make a great Christmas gifts for the fisherman, lake lover, or Lake house. 
As you can see, my maps make a great gift.  Orders are picking up during the holiday's, so order soon. Click here for more information.
