World Map
Girly Design


So I am currently renovating my house which thus far has taken 6 long tiresome months. When it was getting close to my wife Yolandas birthday I thought it would be nice to make her something which she could have in the house.

My super smart Maths teaching wife will be the first to admit that her Geography is a bit off. Only recently she was flabbergasted to discover that Russia bordered China… (now I bet some of you are also amazed by that).

This gave me the idea of creating her a personalised map of the world. I would use pretty girly pastels so that she can have it proudly hung in her sewing room (yes she gets a sewing room but I don’t get a gaming room #FirstWorldProblems).

Here is what I created.

The whole world in view on the map

A little look at Mongolia

A little banner made for the map with our moving date

Also as I’m a bit silly, I made an extra country complete with crazy backstory.

“To show you how much I love you I have created an island off the coast of Indonesia. The logistics and work that went into making a man made island were unimaginable.

I funded the build by creating and distributing methamphetamine, I had my very own special blue blend, notoriously potent and 99.1% chemically pure crystal. The distinctive light blue coloration of the meth crystals is a result of the chemical formula I devised to get around sales restrictions on pseudoephedrine…

Anyway, I have created and named the island but unfortunately have run out of money so we won’t ever be able to visit. Soz. So you will have to make do with this map I made you. xxx”
