Got the World on a String

We finally got our "Newlywed Map" up on the wall!  I have been waiting for the supplies to come in the mail for a few weeks now.

I've always enjoyed maps.  When we drove across the country for a move when I was 17, I highlighted our path across the USA and hung it on my wall.  I like seeing where I have been.  So when I saw a blog post here about this "Newlywed Map" thing, it was right up my alley.

Obviously, you don't have to be newly married, married, or even in a relationship to do this for yourself.  It was a really fun project.  Heather over at Heather Drive did a great post on what all she bought for it and how much it cost her here.  The only things I did different were that I bought two additional colors of map tacks so Mr. Diva and I could mark places we have been individually; and I used a coupon at JoAnns instead of Michaels.  The frame was the same amount though.

Here are pictures of my finished product:

As you can see, the Mister and I have a LOT of traveling to do.  I look forward to adding more tacks onto the map.

Have fun starting your own!
