A few weeks back B had asked me if she could borrow my medals to use for her Christmas tree at work. Everyone in her department had a "themed team tree" and they went with medals from different events and such.
47 of those gems are mine (and the tree--- I like to donate)
After I got them returned I had fun trying to put them back on my medal display in the exact order I earned them.... I'm super anal about the weirdest things, and lax on things that I probably should be anal about.
Although I tried hard to squish the medals together- alas they don't all fit perfectly in a row:
Then the other day I got this little guy in the mail completely unexpected:
(ladies- when there is an option to register as Athena, definitely do it!)
After the honey moon phase wore off of receiving a plaque I didn't know I earned, reality set in and I was left with "where the heck do I put it?" I live in an apartment, so nothing is permanent, but here is my current "bling space"
Pretty boring huh?
The two medal displays I currently own are from Allied Medal Displays, and although I love how you can customize your saying, its kind of a pain they way it attaches to the wall as well is how the medals slide on, so I'm potentially in the market to shop around.
I'd love to hear from you on:
Ways to vamp up the bling space, or what you do for your bling space
What do you use to showcase your medals?
hooks, wall displays, shadow boxes?
If you're not great at explaining and you want to send me a photo of your space, I'm at Lisarun2@gmail.com
