I got a scratch map last Christmas and I still love it. It is such a fun way to document the places in the world I have gone.
When I first got the map I tried to only scratch the states I have been to, but it just looks sort of silly since there is no state outlines on the map. Since I needed to add Switzerland and Italy, it was the perfect time to fill in the entire United States (I’ve been to over half of the states so I think that counts) and Canada.
Much better! My map has a little more color! Eleven countries down… uh, a lot more to go.
If you are wondering why there isn’t a pulled out ‘after’ shot of this area it’s because my room is a hot mess and nobody needs to see that.
