Zoodle Wordle

The other day when I shared some of my browser bookmarks with you, I mentioned the Wordle website. Here is an image I created there:


Isn't that fun? I'm having it printed by Winkflash ($2.38 for an 8x10, including shipping), and I'll buy a cute, cheap frame so I can put this in Zoodle's western-themed nursery.

I love that a time-wasting website like Wordle is turning out to help me in a very practical way in my quest to decorate Zoodle's room!

By the way, here are a couple of tips in case you want to make your own Wordle. First--to make some words bigger than others, type them more than once. I typed "cowboy" three times, and typed all the other words one or two times. Second, my Wordle was not the right dimensions for a standard frame, so I used my graphics program to get it to the right size. If you need any help with the process, feel free to e-mail me at cbethblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

Soon, the long-overdue nursery will be complete, and I think the Zoodle Wordle will really add to the look! (Plus, "Zoodle Wordle" is just fun to say. Zoodle Wordle! Zoodle Wordle! Zoodle Wordle!)

Oh no, you spelled "buckle" wrong!!! Haha, sorry, that was mean since I'm assuming you've already sent it to be printed.

As you know already from my tweeting, I love ze wordle. My "settle down, woman!" wordle from yesterday. I'm going to work on getting that somewhere useful for family vacation next week.

I played around with it a few weeks ago and thought it was a neat idea but really couldn't think of a way to use it...this is a great idea...Thanks,

Sheri--Thanks! I hope it turns out well in "real life."

Cate--You know what I don't ever misspell? "PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE!" ;)

Dan--I actually got the decor idea from Call Me Cate! (Thanks, Cate!)

This is really cute! One of my friends put a Wordle on her blog of her 15-month-old's vocabulary. I'm thinking of doing one for Tyson.
