This has given me a couple of ideas. One of course is to take newspaper/magazine clippings to magnetic strips (I got some that came in a craft grab-bag from Goodwill) The second idea had just come to me just like that. Printing paper Dolls on magnetic sheets. Like the Punk Doll one (Can't remember from what exact post this came from.)

i just found some images that would work well for the poetry.  at the scrapbooking store.  they are by making memories, sheets of stickers (i think they call them fetti).  the colours and fonts already to go i copied mine on a colour copier and ran it through the xyron.  voila, i have my own poetry set.  now i just have to make some to personalize.  i copied some of the newer sticker sets too, i think they look cool as magnets too.

I wrote a small application custom-made to design my own magnetic "TILES"

It is good for any creative production connected to words. Poetry is one example :-)
You can change font/size/colors... and it is FREEWARE !

Just design your words,, and then print it on magnetic sheets. Works on any ink-jet printer.

Feel free to download and try. Please read the included manual for easy instructions, first, though... Smiley

Absolutely right that creativity cannot be copyrighted-however, the NAME Magnetic Poetry is, and the word lists are protected as well, so be careful!   Wink
The company's mission statement is to help people find creative parts of themselves they never knew existed, so by all means, make your own set of words, but if you try to sell it, don't call it Magnetic Poetry.

won't you brighten a wee cat's day?

On the RqWords post, I downloded the program to floppy disk. Installed it on the computer. It ran perfectly the first time, but since then I open it I get the opening screen, bew then the ToolTip comes on & doesn't do anything else. Just sits there (not responding) & I  eventually have to do the Alt/Ctrl/Delete thing to close it.

I made my big bro magnetic poetry from words i cut out of magazines, and then i sent them in the mail to him in nyc. he loves it! but he says it looks more like magnetic ransom poetry because the words are in different fonts and colours. so 'Magnetic Ransom Poetry' can be a name if you want to sell the stuff...

everything passes

ForevrBee:  here's a site that offers free downloads of paper dolls:  lots are cheezy soap stars (actually that could be kinda funny) and then some cool ones like Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Di.


Hope you like!

I just checked out the link you gave, Jojo. Definitly a lot of dolls, not too hot about the soap opera ones, but I love the Charmed ones (One thing though, why didn't she make one of Prue, although she is'nt part of the series anymore).
