#24. Gift

I like making things and I love giving people gifts – so obviously an item on my 30 before 30 list is to make someone a gift. If you know me, you most likely know that I will be an aunt soon for the first time (probably within a month)!! This was not a difficult gift and not completely handmade, but I wanted to give my sister-in-law (and brother) something they could actually use.

They live near the gulf and love to fish, so the nursery theme is nautical. My sister-in-law and I are also both Delta Gammas – ANCHORS!! So I order 3 wooden anchors and painted them to match the nursery. Not difficult at all, I know, but hopefully they will be cute in the nursery! The striped one was obviously a little more difficult but it was also relaxing to just sit and paint!

Sorry – no pic of all of them together and these pics aren’t very good. I gave her the striped one at a shower then finished the others more recently. I’ll add a picture of them in use once I can get one!
