Work related craft
I work as a ENT doctor with middle ear surgery as my special interest. If there is something that I brought with me to the clinical arena from my medieval hobby and the SCA besides the craft focus it is how much impact a small recognition of your fellow peer can have. Therefore I started to make little gifts to co workers that have made that little extra effort that is seldom seen or rewarded by the system.
