WIP Wednesday - "A New Kudo"

Happy Wednesday y'all! 

Last week I hit my WIP limit and didn't have the capacity to post a "WIP Wednesday" article... but I am back!

I am excited to share my progress on cross-stitching all of the Atlassian Kudos Badges and share what I have learned along the way.

Since there are quite a few Kudos Badges left for me to tackle, I decided to make myself a Trello Board to track my progress and better manage my WIP.  :)  Trello is one of the few Atlassian products that I have not used, so I figured this is the perfect time to try it out.  Here is a screenshot of my board.

I used an existing Kanban Trello Board template and deleted the workflow states that I don't need.  I am sure there are lots of Trello capabilities that I not aware of but right now I am tickled pink that I can have a cover image for each card.  Eventually I will redo the Leader Approved badge so I can have it in a nice embroidery hoop like the others. 

Without further ado... here is my completed "Tree Planter" kudos badge:

As you can see from my Trello board, I am going to cross-stitch the "Problem Solver" badge next.  I don't have any other Kudos in my backlog so please feel free to make recommendations!  :)

Thanks for reading and see you next Wednesday.

I want to turn all the badges I have earned in the Atlassian community into something that I can place on my desk at work. :) But I am not talented enough or patient enough to cross stitch.

The Friday Fun badge definitely needs to be next!

I love this so much - both the embroidery project and the use of Trello to track the project!

@Ditte Simard Just lovely! And nice to see that you're using Trello to track your progress. I use Atlas to track the quarterly goals of my virtual badges. I wish Atlassian would send badge stickers as swag for those who eraned them.

The cross-stitch looks amazing! How long did it take to make? 👀

@Monique vdB - you know what? I completely forgot to post the Ocean Devotion badge!  I will include it in today's "WIP Wednesday" article!  And thank you for including me in your wrap-up post!  I have been enjoying making these kudos badges.  :)

@Nikki Zavadska _Appfire_ - thank you!  It takes me about a week to make each badge (in my free time).  I am going to make a really rough guess that it takes me five hours in total.

@Rachel McDonald - good suggestion!  I went ahead and generated the pattern for it.  :)
