Fashion Friday: Bibs and Bling

It's all about the bling! Ok, it's not, but who isn't proud of that finishers medal they put around your neck when you cross the finish line? 

As I started accumulating medals, I had no idea what I would do with them. At first they hung on the corner of my dresser mirror and my bibs were stacked in a drawer. However, as a closet OCD sufferer, I knew I had to do something about them being unorganized! Turning to the ever faithful, Pinterest, I found a few ideas and headed to Home Depot and Hobby Lobby. A couple of hours later, with a board, black paint, robe hooks, and  die-cut letters from my Cricut, a Pinterest creation came to life and I had me a place to proudly display my bling and bibs! 

Tonight, I finished making one for a new friend and it got me thinking: What do you guys do with your bling and bibs? After the few minutes, ok hours, of hanging your achievement around your neck, where do you hang them once the race is over? I have seen coasters, bulletin boards, quilts, etc used to display those hard earned medals and bibs.

Most of us 901 girls have a display board of some kind but at Christmas time Stacey proudly displays hers on her Christmas tree as ornaments. Don't you love that?

This is my own personal board.

These are a couple I drew inspiration from:

Love both of these, maybe one day I will add a motivational phrase or bible verse to mine.

So tell us, what do you do with your medals? 

Post pictures of what you guys do with yours on our Facebook page. We would love to see how you display your bling and bibs! 

Be sure to check out our Pinterest boards for ideas on how to make your own!
