  1. Marianne, love your quotes. I have been using Wordle to creat word pictures but need to look into your one! Cheers

  2. I have used Wordle, as well but it doesn't like my computer, it tells me every time again that I need to download something. I downloaded about three times, then I gave up on it. I do like WordItOut but it only does horizontal words. Still, better than nothing.
    Thanks for loving the quotes, that's one reason I'm posting them, I love them too.
