I have to say I enjoy cutting out these maps. Its almost therapy for me. 🙂 Each map is complete and ready to hang, a small hole is drilled in the back to hang it on the wall.
Working on some new projects coming soon. The other day I was working on the map of Labrador.
I am quite proud of this new woodworking project I created this past week. During November 2016 we hired a company to create some custom LED string lights (which will be available in our online store soon) and then I applied the lights in several new projects.
