Wall of Achievements

This is my dad's office.
1
Like many other offices, the walls are covered with his awards and achievements.
2
I thought I'd do the same to my office since I've achieved and earned quite a lot of awards in my time.
3
Such as this nursery school diploma,
4
This tooth brushing award for brushing my teeth every day for an entire week,
5
Girl scout badges earned by playing games, 
6
and my personal favorite, the" I was caught being good award".
7
I hope people don't feel too intimidated whenever they enter my office...

Cute idea.

When did you cut your hair?!

Alissa said...

I home school my children and I'm TOTALLY going to do this for each of them over their desks! Super cute.
(I've especially been stuck on what to do with those GS badges that they got *after* they would never wear the uniform again. This is great!)

Katherine said...

I can't wait for my boyfriend and I to cover our walls with our music degrees... We'll have so many, just to remind us how truly useless they are...

Koey said...

Katie said...

What a fantastic idea! I LOVE IT! I've been wondering what I can do with all my old girl scout badges- plus we have a lot of doggie obedience class certificates that need to be on display (to prove that those crazy dogs actually GRADUATED training class- so take that neighbors who are always giving me dirty looks! These dogs are graduates!)

cutebun said...

I love ur achievement!

Annie said...

Katie, I think you need to reinstate the "I Was Caught Being Good Award" and award people about town/across the internet. It's too cute not to spread!

YOU are excellent.

The Book Florist said...

That is wonderful!
That reminds me of a scene in the movie, 'Patch Adams'. Two medical student room mates meet for the first time and the first describes his poncy-poncy credentials, awards and top marks. The second then says that in kindergarten he drew a picture of a rabbit and got two gold stars.
Powerful, hey?

What a stellar idea! I love the tooth brushing award, congratulations on your accomplishment!

Brown Paper Packages said...

That's fantastic. We should all thumb our nose at tradition from time to time, yes? Reminds us that perspective truly is an INDIVIDUAL thing. Love it!

Very cute!

this chicken said...

Wonderful!! You have inspired me to get out and frame my "Garden On A Plate Winner, Summer Fete 1988" and "Cycle Proficiency, 1991" certificates for my office wall!

If you've achieved it then why not flaunt it? :D

Shelley Noble said...

Hilarious! And you are fully adorable with a great sense of fun.

Haha! My dad does this, actually! (He's a retired fireman.) He calls it his "attaboy wall" and he used to hang up certificates of completion for his various training and refresher courses.

Rebecca said...

I LOVE this!! Just last week I was comparing my doctor-husband's achievement wall with my own, well..lack of achievement wall. I decided I would just make up certificates for things I had done! Your scheme has given me a new twist. I think I have some patches lying around somewhere...!
