Don't Cry Smile Because It Happened - Thumbnail

I received the following lovely email today from a Silhouette user:

I just wanted to thank you for the vinyl quotes that you have on the Silhouette site!  Recently the store that I work for closed their doors and a lot of wonderful women lost their jobs!  I has been a rough month and a half for us as we help close up our store.  There has been lots of crying and just as much laughing!  Your quote “ don’t cry because its over” was perfect timing!  I took a picture of our store with the sign missing and put your quote on the front of the glass!  It was perfect!  Thank You so much for such a wonderful saying!  It is perfect for so many things in our ever changing lives!

Deneen, thank you so much for sharing your story with us!  We all have things that end and this quote helps us face them all.  Click here to find the Dr. Seuss quote in my Silhouette store.  You’ll also find many other vinyl quotes, including the following.  And you can’t tell me that you haven’t felt this way about chocolate at some point!

Jason is an amazing father.  The time and energy he spends being a dad is exactly what I would choose for my son.  Now that Coleman can get in and out of his booster seat in the car, they can go just about anywhere together.  There are very few days when Jason does not take Coleman with him to run errands or go on an outing to the Dollar Store, Cherry Berry Yogurt, to play at a fast food playplace, or anything else they can dream up.  They work out the logistics of a successful day together.  With physical challenges that would give any father opportunities for excuses and giving up, Jason is a hero in every sense of the word.


Father’s Day is only a few days away.  Here is a vinyl quote for the perfect Dad Project.  Personally, I think it would look fabulous using the chalkboard tutorial found here. The quote comes with both son and daughter as well as individual versions. It fits any family.

This week my vinyl quote “Today Is the Day for Being Awesome” was chosen for the Silhouette Weekly Shape Challenge and there are two fabulous tutorials available on the Silhouette blog.  The great thing about these projects is that they work for ANY of my vinyl quotes available in my Silhouette store….

and are soon to be available in Lori Whitlock’s SVG shop!  I have chosen some of the most popular quotes and Lori’s team is currently working on getting them up and running in her shop.  My shapes will also be available for commercial license through her shop.  So, Cricut users rejoice!  You can get them in only a matter of days.  I know, I can’t wait either!

Use the same steps in each of these tutorials to accomplish the projects using any of my vinyl quotes – they make great gifts and fabulous home decor for any room of the house.  And everyone will love the words that say it perfectly.  Head over to the Silhouette store and collect all of my quotes.  You’ll want them in your stash for sure.
