I've had this idea for a couple of months now to get a ton of maps and put them on the wall, collage style. I saw it in some magazine or catalog at a family's house that I was babysitting. So I took a picture of it with my phone and thought, "hmm. someday".
Well, Pete had a snow day today and so did I, so...we decided to DO it!
I wish we had planned better, though - we took down all the pictures on one of the walls in the living room, because we were going to do it there, and then we decided against that and put it up in the dining room...ugh.
But we spent a good amount of time stretching our arms above, holding the maps up in place, and pricking ourselves with thumbtacks. Pete was especially fond of putting tacks in his mouth and talking.
I said, "Pete! Take that out of your mouth. I know you feel cool with it, and being able to talk, but if it drops down your throat and tears your esophagus..."
Pete: "you know where the hospital is."
Anyways. I really like it. And the cool thing is, is that we can still hang pictures on it. Except they should probably be framed, not just the print.
