Souvenir pin travel map
« on: October 06, 2016, 01:09:55 pm »
Got lots of comments on this idea.  Started 30 years ago collecting souvenir pins.  Bought a fabric USA map on eBay, stretched it over a 24x20 artistís canvas, and attached to our PC wall with Velcro.  Easy to add new pins.  Hate to think about the cost of all the pins though.  Of course we sold our PC a year ago, so now it hangs in my office.   :beg
I remember very few of the things that Iíve spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that Iíve spent money to see.

What an awesome way to keep the memories. I'm sure there is a tale to tell with each of those pins and many fond memories to go with it. Thanks for sharing a really cool idea.

Love your idea. We bought magnets for the fridge, then one of those US magnetic maps and finally we started Christmas tree ornaments from various state and national parks we visit.  Just something to help us remember our travels. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. Great conversation starter. I like it a lot.

Linda kept a log of everywhere we camped including friends and family attending.  She captures uniques things that occurred on each trip. So when we read the log it brings back memories of the fun we had.

Good to hear from you!
