Word Cloud

I like to feature what I'm working on currently when I can, and this is my latest project - a Jedi word cloud. Carved to fit on an LTC, I seemed to have a little problem keeping things level...haha! You may also notice that there are a couple of "i-dots" missing; I did carve them, but they were so small that they went away with the first cleaning of the stamp. Oh well.

Since I discovered word clouds, also called 'wordles', I have been fascinated. So, you input what you want to 'word cloud', and the program makes it into a cloud - very fun! The program puts more emphasis on the words that occur more frequently, giving it visual importance in the cloud. This one is taken from the Jedi Code:
Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.

Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.

Jedi respect all life, in any form.

Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.

Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.
I played with these before when I was tipped off to a website that allowed you to make your own. The problem was that the website wouldn't allow you to print them (or else I just couldn't figure out how to do it!) That's OK...I own a camera and I can carve whatever I like - so there! ha!

I used to use these when I taught high school. They were fun.

Wow! You did such a wonderful job with that font . . . and so many e's (not my favorite letter to carve). Kudos to you, my friend.

I expected a graphic generated by the program, not a stamp.

Holy crap! You are amazing!!!
