I am totally loving Artisteer! I used it on both of my blogs - check them out to see if you like the designs. http://www.mysweetangelpie.com and http://www.choosingbeauty.com. It definitely takes some time, but you get to make everything exactly the way you want it and I think I paid like $49 total! If you're interested, scroll down on either blog and there's a link to Artisteer there. Good luck!
If you are an avid traveler like we are there is nothing like tracking your overseas visits whether it's electronically with digital maps or even on interactive canvas maps. While digital maps are fun, yes, we agree that physical canvas world maps are the best.
