I found this little memo board at the dollar store last month. Yup, the dollar store. I brought it home knowing it was a good find, but I had no idea what to do with it. Remembering a goal I had as a child, to visit all 50 states, this is what I came up with.
It holds a map, so that I could put pins in the places I have been. It was really easy to make. I sanded the memo board and painted it black. I googled for maps of America and found one I liked. I re sized it to the size of the board and the printed it. I modge podged it to the board. After it dried, I put my pins in. I think my husband approves of this project because he asked if we could put pins in for him too.
I really like it. I have always wanted to be a traveler and this makes me feel like I am tracking a goal.
