Cute & Cheap



Been to wordle.net? I hadn't until two days ago. You type in whatever words you want and it comes out as a cool word collage. The more times you type a word, the bigger it comes out. (It looks pretty cool when you do an essay or newspaper article. Wonder how talks from General Conference or the Christmas Devotional would come out??) Pick the colors and which layout you want and bam - free Christmas present. Buy a Hobby Lobby frame at 50% off and it's art. Couple of things that bug - you can't save it as a picture, but you can print it to a pdf. You can't arrange the layout yourself, just mess around until it gives you want you want. Go play! I think Elder Scotty will get one for Christmas, and so will my kids (obviously). I need to re-do Cami's. I don't love hers as much. But I dig W's.

That is SOOO cool! It would also make cheap personalized decor for their room!

They are really cute. Question - did you just print them off at home? I don't have a color printer (and Dave even offered to get me one for Christmas but I decided against spending the $$ on it) so could I save it and print it off at say Walgreens? Yeah - I know I am being lazy by asking you instead of just figuring it out - sorry!

I had Taylor print them off at work. You could totally take them to a copy place and print them. You just can't "save" them, so you have to print them to a pdf and save that. We didn't have a pdf writer, so we downloaded a free one here. http://www.primopdf.com

We recently printed something at Kinko's from a PDF file we saved onto a thumb drive. It was super cheap there, and they had nice cardstock in all different colors.
