Look at this great wordle idea over at Just A Girl. Actually, her whole post is full of great ideas!
Here is an idea that I had for wordle using your last name. I did make one of these for my family picture wall, but wasn't sure if I wanted to post my last name for all of the world to see, so below I'm using the word Sample. Hope you understand.
Type your last name into wordle. Use a combination of small and capital letters, like this:
You will end up with something like this:
You can play around with it, changing font, colors and the orientation of the words, until you like the results.
Chalk it up:
Write on black card stock (or in this case the black cardboard that came with the picture frame) with chalk. Add a picture and hang.
Here I took a stained fruit picture that was in a greenish antiqued picture frame and painted it all black. This was long before blogging, so I have no before picture. I then place it on the piano, with some loving words written in chalk.
I am working hard on motivating my son to practice piano. He has a talent, but he is also almost twelve. He really doesn't give me a hard time, but motivation is key.
Ok ladies, please do not abandon our blog after you see this picture. I am working on having a better looking laundry room. The shelves are just catch-alls for all types of things with no rhyme or reason. My dryer is never cleaned off. Just a few days ago, I had a pile of laundry a mile high on top. Over the weekend, I whittled it down to this. There is also some dirty laundry on the floor, but I decided this picture was painful enough. Stay tuned. I want a prettier laundry room. There is a pretty chair and a piece of art or two that belong here, but I'll wait to show you those once the other part is brought out of the uglies.
