WIWO Wednesday - It's What I'm Working On.

This week I'm working on SO MANY THINGS!

More to come in upcoming posts, but in the meantime, I thought I would take this opportunity to show you a new idea that I've listed on etsy.

I have a LOVELY vintage, baby blue typewriter that is probably one of the five things I'd grab if there was ever a fire in my house. No, really.

Here she is in all her glory:

Isn't she beautiful?

Back to etsy.

When I first started creating mixed media art, I was always on the lookout for cool fonts. I LOVE text in art and especially when there are unique fonts.

Let's face it: typewriter fonts are everywhere. You can use Courier in your MS Office documents, and you can download others from font websites.

But do your fonts have random ink splatters that add to their appeal?

Do your fonts actually imprint into the page because of the impact of the typewriter keys?

Didn't think so.

Starting this week, I'm offering up my typewriter for you to use. Well, sorta.

These two etsy listings will give you up to 30 words or up to 100 words delivered to your door. That's right, shipping is included in these listings.

So go ahead! Send me something to type out for you.

Make your art AWESOME with REAL typewritten words.

  1. I have such a love/hate relationship with typewriters. First, I too love the sound typewriters make. But my first encounter with a typewriter was in the 8th grade and I was stuck in a year long typing class rather than getting to take art with Mr. Willbanks (he was young and hot to an eighth grader). But knowing to type well served me well later on in life. I can still remember getting excited when I got an IBM selectric to type on at work. Of course, then switching over to computers was nothing. But I love the typing sound to this day.
