A very close friend of my mother's got married a year and a half ago. I never got to give her a present on my own behalf, so when I worked this summer as a counselor at a children's church camp she introduced me to years ago, I made her a craft that I hoped would be meaningful to her.

When I was six years old, she and my mother took me on a trip to Maine. Since then, lighthouses have been very symbolic in our lives. I painted her a candleholder from a plant pot using acrylics. I can't, to my frustration, locate the reference image, so I'm not sure what lighthouse this is.







I also made the couple a card: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261473.0

That's really wonderful! Even more so because it has all that meaning behind it! The lighthouse it beautiful and the letters are really cool Smiley

If you want to spoil a grouch's day, smile Smiley

Joy may be the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy Smiley

Very pretty and thoughtful; it will surely be appreciated.  Looks like Pemaquid Point to me but I could be wrong - haven't been there in many years.
