Gifts for Writers


‘Tis the season to think about thoughtful Christmas presents in themes for family, friends and co-workers.  I am featured artist for December First Saturday Artwalk and since I haven’t been able to come up with fantastic singular theme, I think I will call my ecectic mix of ideas: “It’s a One of a Kind Christmas.”

Themes help me come up with ideas, in this case I made a one of a kind ornament for a writer. It is a printable typewriter download and the pink typewriter will really stand out on the Christmas Ornament tree at Sunrose.  I found the free printable at since all you do is click and print, it’s an easy ornament perfect for the writer in your family, or print one out for yourself!

The free printable typewriter comes in cream but I played with it in my photo software and colored it dusty pink before I printed it out. has a big  whimsical selection of free printables, so check them out.

So I have my first OOAK ornament for my featured artist show!  I have a lot of ornament ideas buzzing around in my head.  When I go to Pinterest for inspiration sometimes I see something that is so cool I wish I would have thought of it.  I saved a few ideas that would make wonderful gifts for writers that you might be inspired to make.

These OOAK ideas were on Pinterest:


This would be perfect for the studio!


Really cute and would look cute in a pencil cup!


Can you ever have enough key fob ideas?

Happy Writing!
