Well, that was the scene in my kitchen last week when my medal hanger from Allied Medal Displays arrived. Some of you may remember how I accidentally burned the ribbon on my Seawall half marathon medal - oh, I was so crushed when I did that! I knew that I needed a medal hanger and started looking around on the web - while there are a couple of manufacturers out there, the one that stood out head and shoulders above the rest was Allied Medal Displays - I fell in love with their hangers. Not only do they have a wide variety with themes of running and other sports, they also offer custom hangers, and that is what I asked for. You know how you sometimes don't know exactly what you want until you see it? Well, take a look at this:
Joel Exe, the Marketing and Sales Director of Allied Medal Displays, was so intuitive in making my medal hanger - I didn't even think to tie in the hibiscus flower from my blog's header into the medal display but now I can't imagine it any other way. I absolutely love it!
I am so appreciative of Joel Exe and Allied Medal Displays for giving me something so perfect to not only display my medal(s), but also to remind me of the journey that I've taken over the past 2 1/2 years to change my life. I get a thrill every time I catch sight of the medal hanger, which is often since I have it hanging in my office. :)
And now for the fun stuff: Allied Medal Displays has generously offered to give one of my readers their very own medal hanger! You can choose from any of their standard displays - to enter, go here to check them out and leave me a comment with which one you would like. They also have a Facebook page where you can see lots of neat displays - including some really cool custom hangers. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Entries close this Thursday evening; I'll have random.org draw the winner and make the announcement on Friday's Mishmash, interwebs-willing.
FTC disclosure: Allied Medal Displays generously provided me with a medal hanger for review. The opinions (and glee) expressed are all my own.
