The Write Gift

My daughter turned 26 yesterday.  How can that be when I clearly remember being 26 myself!  My daughter is a writer {not published ~ yet.  Unless you count Highlights magazine many years ago}; she has loved to write since she was a child.

I decided to make her gifts to reflect her love of writing.  First I made her the Keep Calm and Write On printable and framed it.  Something I thought she could hang or put near the area where she writes.

I also made her this Write pillow.  I transferred the image to Osnaberg fabric and found the backing fabric on Etsy from Plum Patchwork

I like how the typography in the fabric works with the “Write” theme.

I feel like I got her just the “write” gift!
