Playing With Words

While thinking about & playing with words last month, with the CED Challenge, I discovered "Wordle". What fun! You can create & customize little word clouds either using words of choice, pasting in a bunch of text or have it automatically pull words from your blog posts.
To begin with I typed in words that I associate with torching & some of the feelings I experience when I am at the torch.

Next I entered the URL to my blog & saw what it pulled up from recent posts at the time - the most recent post at that point was "Fantastic Finish - Finally"

This morning I visited Wordle again, just to see what it would pull from my blog & the recent posts.....

This really sums up the last two posts perfectly - in fact I think I might just print it out & pin it to my inspiration board out in the studio.

Try it for yourself, create word clouds....go & have some fun on "Wordle"

How seriously cool is that "Wordle" thing? I do believe I'm gonna have to click the link and get hooked :) Hey, just think of all the uses if you like words-- for instance, printing out sheets of wrapping paper for a unique gift or making a background for a bead pic?

Uh oh - see I knew a really creative mind would think outside the box!

Ang - what fabulous uses! I'm impressed....& now thinking of cards also!

I'm also thinking of that nice new laser printer that sits behind me....& how well behaved I have been about not printing things out....& how that is about to change.

Don't think we shall mention that to the mailleman though.....
