I didn't stitch much yesterday, instead I helped my dh put together a shadow box for his badges and a medal he got while he was working with Cobb County Police Department in Georgia. I think it turned out really nice. I laced some black velvet onto the padded backing that came with the shadow box for him.

Chris's badges from Cobb Co. PD

The picture is not the greatest, but I think you get the idea. It was really hard to photograph!

Well, I'm going to be taking a little blogging break. I have to have some dental work done on Monday and then I plan to do some spring cleaning before we head down to Florida for spring break. There is a lot of clutter that I need to clear out! It's crazy how fast it accumulates! Write when I can!!! :)


  1. Nicole, what a neat idea to show case your husband's badges! It turned out very nicely. Good luck with the clear out--I swear that our excess stuff multiplies on its own. :P

  2. I agree with Siobhan...great idea for his badges. Hope your dental work goes well.

  3. I love your idea to put your DH's badges in the shadow box... it looks lovely. Hope the dental work goes well.
    I'm still in the process of doing a spring clear-out and I hope your attempt goes faster than mine.
    Enjoy Spring Break in Florida.

  4. You must be so proud of your husband! I love the shadow box - looks great! Good luck with the dental work and the spring clean!

  5. What a great idea, Nicole! I bet your DH was thrilled!

    Good luck with the dental work, and have a fun spring break trip!

  6. I had no idea your DH was with the Police; the display looks beautiful! Good luck with your clean-out (Stuff does just breed, really, and have a great trip!)

    Totally looking forward to seeing more of your stitching when you get back! :)

    Oh, P.S. best wishes for your dental endeavors!

  7. The shadow box with your DH's badges in it is a great idea. It looks wonderful!

    I hope your dental work goes well and you recover quickly so you can have a great time in Florida.

  8. That is so neat...congratulations to your husband for all of those have a good friend who is a Security Police Officer but prior to that he was the Chief Of Police for a long time and he has so many certificates and badges that it isn't even funny. He is even a State Certified Rescue Scuba Diver too.

    I am so happy for you both.

    Take care & Happy Stitching

  9. Best of luck on your teeth--we'll miss you! And I love the idea of the shadow box--it turned out so well with the badges on that black velvet!

  10. Wonderful job on the Shadowbox, Nicolle. Hope all goes well with your dental work and the clean-up. Enjoy the trip to FLA!!! Godspeed!

  11. I am from Cobb County and my father is a former ATF agent. They probably know each other, my dad has a lot of cop friends there. I just happened upon your blog one day, and check it frequently to see your stitching projects. Funny! Small world. The shadow box looks great!

  12. What a great job and any person should be proud to put all that on display!
