My proudest moment was when I freed two seagulls at the beach! They were fouled on discarded fishing equipment and had hooks in their beaks. One of those times when you don't think just do as they would have died. I was so happy when they flew off Happy

When my boyfriend won a prize for his pottery - I couldn't stop beaming. I could have stopped every stranger on the way home to tell them, but to his relief I didn't. I'm also lucky that my job comes with loads of proud moments. I work in a mental health daycentre and I still remember the day one of my clients came in to tell me she had got a 2:1 for her music degree. Also hearing another one of my clients perform one of her own songs to our under 30s group. We were having a music appreciation session where everyone brings in a cd to play something they like to the group. She had just come back to the group after being in hospital for nearly 2 years. She'd bought a cd in but saw the guitar in the room we were in and just picked it up and sang the most amazing song instead. It was one she'd written herself when she was really unwell and was so moving.

When I saved a bird when it crashed on the window back when I was small. Our dog could have harmed but fortunately he didn't! Such a good boy! He's kind of old now Happy my uncle bought HM when I was four! And now my uncle left Nepal and went to Australia. My uncle used to train him and used to be his buddy. Now that he here after years my dog was maybe angry and looked very sad :'( dogs are so smart!

What an interesting question. It took me a moment to realize that I rarely let myself feel proud of my accomplishments!

I am terribly proud of my house. It was a NASTY little fixer upper that no one else wanted. But, it had an AMAZING view. My new neighbors thought I was crazy when I had some of the huge trees taken out... until they saw the view it opened up. My grandpa and I built the deck together.

Everyone thought I was just plain nuts, but not anymore. I even had a local contractor ask me to sell. I still have tons of work to do but am now married to a lovely man who takes pride in our home and is an equal partner at my side.

Thanks Fathima for giving me this moment to remember, stop and be proud. =)

Every time I get to say "I'm an environmental science major" in an engineering robotics club full of electrical and mechanical engineers and computer science people and when they say they need outside people to get different perspectives on their new projects :3

I'm in the group because they advocate for improving education for under-resourced local schools and that's what I've been advocating for myself since I've been in high school

Also when I got to learn how to use a bunch of scary power tools lol

my proudest moment was when my youngest daughter sang for the first time. she had some hearing issues that led to delayed speech, so she was pretty quiet for her first 2 years. after she got tubes put in her ears and started speech therapy, she made great progress, but refused to sing ever. one night we were all in the kitchen making dinner together, dancing and (me, mostly) singing to Awolnation. out of nowhere, she starts singing along- "all i need, all-all i need, is you, smiling. all i need, all-all i need, is life, love, with you" it was one of those cheesy, cliche kodak moments and the proudest i've ever been Happy she even did an encore so i could record it on video, which is amazing in itself because she is extremely shy and doesn't like to "perform" for people Happy

aww these are all such cute stories. I guess the proudest thing I can remember is completing a graphic design project for my exams. I made this children's book about bears sort of in the style of lauren child, this was while in hospital and had to go part time. I showed it to everyone bu I soon got depressed about my whole situation. It was short lived pride but I can't remember when I've felt so proud about anything I've done.

For you Syeyon: (For clarity, Syeyon PM'd me a request to see my deck. I could not find a way to send it privately.)

We've already started stowing things away for winter so it's not "prettied" up but here is the deck we made. Thanks so much for reminding me of all the wonderful memories I have of Grandpa and making it.

He really was my first DIY inspiration, though I didn't realize it until now!

Seeing all my friends graduate from high school was the proudest moment I ever had. And especially seeing one of my best friends wearing a dress I made for her with my other best friend. She looked so gorgeous Happy

- I'm really glad I read this Board Question and all the precious moments listed in these post.-
You are all wonderful.
Just like Ravens Trove, I also do not often let myself feel proud of my accomplishments.
? I guess there are times it is good to stop and enjoy ones successes. ?
So in that respect my proud moment was when my Son graduated High School and my Daughter was inducted to the National Honor Society. Both of these were just this year(2013). They Sound like their proud moments(not Mine) but If you knew how hard it has been to get one through k-12 and the other academical successful you would understand.
Maybe I will create a Kudos Board to place proud moment on.
I love CO&K for all the inspiration to keep Crafting.
thanks, fathima A.
sincerely, Nora
