I love Christmas. Part of the reason I love Christmas so much is because Christmas is all about giving and I love giving. One of the people whom I especially love getting creative for is my good husband. Let me tell you, at the risk of sounding like I am gloating, I feel sorry for all of you who are not married to my good husband. I know you must have wonderful hubbies, but I also know that I got the pick of the litter. heheh
I could go on and tell you all the wonderful reasons why I'm so glad he married me, but that's actually not what this post is supposed to be about. Instead, I will tell you about a marvelous toy I found online to make a gift that he seemed to really enjoy. Have you ever Wordled? haha. No, I did not just make a major spelling error. That is actually a word and a fun one, at that.
Here's what I did for my good husband's Halloween birthday: I wrote a story especially for him. Then, I typed each of our kids' and grandies' names into a word document. From there, I copy/pasted the story and all of the names (I used full names because the more words you have, the more fun your Wordle is) into the Wordle page. Oh, wait! I didn't tell you where it was, did I?
Well, just go to http://www.wordle.net/ and follow the instructions. I chose to use a white background so I wouldn't use too much ink. I also printed the finished Wordle on card-stock paper so my good husband could frame it if he wanted to, which he did. By clicking on Create and copy/pasting your word list into the open window, you can choose from a number of layouts and colors. After copy/pasting your word list, click Go. Next, you'll see a window filled with a jumble of words. Near the bottom of the page, click on Open In Window. From there, you can experiment with all kinds of colors, backgrounds and layouts.
I do hope you will go over to the Wordle board and create your own Wordle. Besides having a great gift, you'll have loads of fun.
