    Hello everyone! I started seriously collecting pins about a year ago, my wife and I collected before that but on back to back trips to WDW and DLR in 2016 we got hooked. Then for the one year anniversary of our trip in early 2017 I decided to get her a few pins on eBay as a surprise, that's when I got seriously hooked and learned about all of the pin sources, WDI, MOG, D23, DLR, WDW, DLRP, Tokyo, Shanghai, P.I.N.S., DSF/DSSH, etc. I keep telling myself because my wife would rather have pins than jewelry this is cheaper but I need to stop fooling myself!

    Anyway, I enjoyed seeing your collections and wanted to share mine! Here is most of what we have as of today. My wife is an artist so she makes the custom pin boards we have, I'm sure I'm missing some too as they are literally all over the house, and sorry for the somewhat poor quality of some of these, if there's a pin you want a better shot of just let me know. Not pictured is most of a complete set of DSF/DSSH alphabet pins including duplicates so we could spell our names (not pictured for privacy reasons) and all of the Disney art around the house, some official, some created by my wife, if there's interest I can post some of her fan art.

    Here are the big boards in the guest/pin room.

    My wife wears lanyards at work so I got her some of them as well.

    This is our parks ping board, a little tough to see the pins on the background so I took some closeups.

    Here is the tiki/Stitch collection on a custom board in our work in progress tiki themed game room, there is one non-Disney pin on the board which is a Mondo Aliens tiki pin.

    Just a non-Disney pin with an inappropriate word on it. ;)

    Thanks! That pin series is great and the paint quality is amazing, lots of pearlescent colors, it took several patient months to get them all and Chernabog was the toughest to find (at a reasonable price).

    Thanks! Yeah we just go with what strikes our fancy but we also have some favorites, Stitch of course, Maleficent for her, Pixar and park themed pins for me which is why we have so many ride and land pins.
