DH and I made our maps on Saturday night! I love love love mine. I was completely in the zone, very focused and passionate, the whole time I was making it and when it was done I could not take my eyes off it. Finishing it was very emotional for me. It ended up very different than I expected -- I left off a lot of images I had initially felt strongly about. And other images that seemed like filler at first ended up being very resonant.
DH's is not finished -- he just started with a few images he said were very powerful, but decided he wanted to draw or paint the rest. What is a good time frame for finishing an unfinished map?
Also -- for anyone else who needs to keep their map hidden, what strategies are you using? While in theory I love the idea of sharing the map with my family, some parts of it are not ready to be shared with anyone but DH. So, for now, I have it hiding behind a dresser. It's big -- on poster board -- but it fits against the wall behind a large chest of drawers. I've been trying to pull it out at least once a day to gaze upon it.
