Light House Name Sign

I had ANOTHER of my co-workers come up to me wanting to know why “everyone else” had a name sign and she didn’t…LOL  For starters, a couple of Christmases ago one of the coders came up and asked if she could order some for all the other inpatient coders as Christmas gifts.  Barb is newer in the office (she was a home coder) so she missed out on the gift giving.  Because she is such a sweetie and I really do like her…I asked when her birthday was and told her I’d make her one for her birthday.  I always ask before I make these what they like, collect, what their hobbies are, favorite colors etc…  Her list was as follows:  Likes – hummingbirds, light houses, beach, bird houses, outdoors.  Hobbies – Camping, crafts with fabric, card making (huh?  I thought I was the only one in my office who made cards…LOL), relaxing, wine.  Collections – shot glasses, light houses, and bird houses.  I decided to go with the light houses as you can see…  I got this image from Delicious Doodles
I colored the image using chalks and then added a sailboat sticker, some shells and a bow to doll it up some.  I used a wood frame because I thought it would give it more an outdoorsy feeling to it.  Sure hope she likes it – it will make a nice birthday gift!
Thanks for looking!
