Crazy Cool Wordle for Shabby Chic Love

 
Thank you all for the nice comments about my soon to be grand-baby.  I've missed posting here but we had a great time in New Jersey.  It seemed like just yesterday that I had lived there...not muched has changed - with the landscape that is.  My daughter, well she looks great and is now showing ...too fun.
 
Since I haven't really prepared a post I thought I'd give a neat little app you may not have heard of.  All you "wordies" should love it.  It's called Wordle.  What you may not know about me is that I own a Home Staging company, and I came across this site when trying to make an interesting sign for a trade show I did.
 
Here is one I created for my love of shabby chic...


 



Isn't that crazy cool?

Here are some tips when creating your wordle:

1.  The more times you type a word - the larger the word prints
2.  You can have it run in different directions - this one was 1/2 horizontal and 1/2 vertical
3.  You can change fonts, colours and background colours (of course I love the black & white)
4.  If you also love numbers 123 (for example) go into language and check "show numbers"
5.  If you want more than one word to stay grouped together use this symbol ~ between the words as in Shabby~Whites
6.  You can also input your blog addy or any other website address and it will pull the words directly from it

Here are some examples from the gallery (not mine)

~create one for Mother's Day using words that describe your Mom...I framed one as a thank you gift to my business coach using words that described her and she loved it~


~plain initials~

~earth day~

Have fun with it, and let me know how yours turns out.

Thank you for this great post - I'm working on this idea for my daughters wedding party and hope to have them done by June.......of this year.

We're crafting round the clock over here - going in baby steps learning as we go with alot of faking it.

My house is like the back room of a crafters studio - out of control!
