Choosing the Right Font for a Cricut or Silhouette Project

This post is for my readers who are crafters.

Whether you have a Silhouette or a Cricut  choosing the right font for a project can take a lot of time and cause  frustrations.    I recently found a webpage to help make reaching that decision faster and easier.

With this website all you have to do is type in a word. Then select the load fonts box. Amazingly the word is shown in all of the fonts that are loaded onto your computer.  (It won’t show you the Cricuts fonts that you have to buy through Design Space.)

Here are a small sampling of the fonts I have on my computer:

I typed out all of my fonts for the words “love my cricut” and to my surprise I had 9 pages of fonts.

This site has saved me so much time.  I love it and use it every time I make a project on my cricut.  All you have to do is click the following link….www.wordmark.it.  The site is so easy to use.  Try it out and let me how you like it.

May 1st Already

Can you believe it is May 1st already?

It is May Day.  I always think of attending my younger cousin’s May Pole dance when May 1 rolls around.  She was in 1st grade .  I was a little jealous that we didn’t have this celebration at my school.  I’m also reminded of one of my other cousin’s son birthday on that day.

May 1st means that the year is already 1/3 over.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  I ‘ve had a great first 4 months of the year.   Here’s why my year is going by so fast.

First of all, in January we went on a cruise to the Panama Canal with friends and family.  This was a magnificent experience as we toured areas of Central America and South America.

February seemed to fly by as we spent time in Florida enjoying the beautiful weather, working on our place, and viewing the ocean and its wildlife.  We had great times with some good friends.  I mustn’t forget to tell you that I shopped till I dropped.   Yes, Florida is a great place to shop consignment shops and retail stores.

March was split between Florida and Our Old Kentucky Home.  I sure do adore the green, green grass of home.  Florida weather and the ocean are beautiful, but their grass is nothing compared to the grass in Kentucky.

April was a fun time with visiting family at Easter and planning our garden.  Flowers were planted and the weather was warmer than usual in Kentucky.  No frost yet on our plants.  Daddy always said not to plant flowers, tomatoes, or corn before Derby Day.  But this year has been different.

Amazingly here it is May 1st.  Surprisingly the year is 1/3 gone.  It sure is true that time flies when you’re having fun!   Now onto more fun throughout the rest of the spring and summer.  I’m anticipating the Kentucky Derby party at my cousin’s place in Louisville.  Also Mother’s Day with family and going to Lake Cumberland.  Hopefully we will be selling my late Mom’s house.

Wow!  What a year so far!  Thankful for every blessing the Lord has sent down.  Good health, great family, and fun times.  What else could a person ask for?  Of course, there have been a few struggles, but many more good things than bad.

Be thankful for what you have!  Anticipate a good future.  As my yard flag says,  “MAKE TODAY AMAZING” .

So long until next time.
