Inspirational Find
I love fonts. I love trying new handwritings. Lately, I have found myself drawn to samplers. I have discovered some amazing samplers created by calligraphers that inspire me to always dot my i's and complete the loops of my o's.
I stumbled across this very cool website Wordle.net that makes a sampler of sorts with words you type in. Alternately, you can give the program a website address where it can randomly choose words to create the graphic. For this instance, I used my blog address as the word source. I can see myself getting drawn in and endlessly playing with this application, but I will resist its charm.
For now, I will let it inspire me to pull out a pen and create, by hand, my own sampler.
