i map this for mitch (the boyfriend) for christmas ... not sure why it's taken me so long to share. with the help of dad i started with a simple pinboard and just added a little bit here and there of white paint next i brought a laminted map from national geographic but then cut out the bits i didnt want ... i stuck that on with cratf glue and purchased pins from kikki k ... i used twin to contect places he has already been to but the idea is when he travels all over the world as planned there will be string running every which way direction =) last dad helped me use some of our old fence palings to create a rustic frame =) 

think its probably the best "made" present i've ever made him, but not sure how i'll ever bet this one =)
