Map of out-of-town friends and family
If you are like our family, you have lots of friends and family that your children seldom get to see because they live far away. My latest idea for keeping our family "connected" with far-away loved-ones is this map on the wall of my baby's nursery.
The pictures I cropped and resized using our photo editor. The lettering I created by making a word document with a huge font size and going into the advanced settings for the font where I changed the font color to white and stipulated that I wanted the letters outlined. When the outlines of the letters were printed, I colored them with markers, cut them out and affixed them to the wall with poster tape.
(By the way, I am not done putting pictures on this map. If you know me and notice that your picture isn't on the wall, don't feel unloved! I probably just don't have a picture in the right format yet!)
