Sentimental gifts are always the best, right?! One of my most treasured gifts was a simple board with words on it. Yep words. My dear friend Alison made 'subway art' with words that reminded her of me. It melts my heart every time I look at it. When thinking about gifts for my neighbors, I wanted it to be something sentimental, easy, and inexpensive. Combine that with my deep love for hot chocolate and vwallah: Hot Chocolate Art! ;)
My family and I sat down and made a list of words that described a family in our neighborhood. We then picked words that described each individual in that family. After we had our list we simply plugged the words into Wordle and watched it create beautiful word art.
If you've never used Wordle before, you simply plug in words, and it creates a word collage. If you want certain words emphasized, simply repeat that word several times. Fabulous site!
We wrapped the 'family word art' around a can of hot chocolate.
We then wrapped the 'individual word art' around a Styrofoam cup for each member of the family.
We attached a little note to the can of hot-cocoa that said...
I like to imagine the family gathering around, having a cup of hot cocoa, and discussing all the sweet words that
describe them. Warm stomachs, and warm hearts. :) You can't beat it.
I hope it makes them smile.
Thank you for the opportunity to be on the fabulous U-create today! We always feel so honored for the invitation. :)
