Create Word Cloud Art with Wordle

If "go to graphic design school" hasn't been checked off your list yet, but you enjoy playing with fonts and color, Wordle is a really fun online tool for creating "word clouds" that you can print and frame or use for wrapping paper or stationery.

We have to give credit to Vintage Chica where we first heard about Wordle. She planned on using it to create Valentine's gifts for her husband and sons which is a terrifically sweet, personal, and, not to mention, inexpensive gift idea.

With Wordle, you plug in words (adjectives to describe your child for example) - the more times you enter the same word the bigger it is in your word cloud - and then you can play with colors, fonts and orientation (any which way, mostly horizontal, etc.) to form your own word cloud art.

Here's the link to Wordle - have fun!
