My First Silhouette Project: Please Knock

As I’ve already told you, Nolan gave me a Silhouette for Christmas. I LOVE it! Christmas evening I had fun making my first project: a sign asking people to please knock instead of ringing the doorbell. The doorbell itself isn’t what wakes our baby, the reaction of the dog to the doorbell is what wakes Jace. Knocking still is followed by a crazy amount of barking, but the volume isn’t quite as bad.

I had fun choosing the frame, playing with fonts, and then finally watching it come out all beautifully cut. I feel like it stands out beautifully against our house color.

Unfortunately, the UPS guy seems blind, or doesn’t think this sign applies to him, so while cute, our sign has been completely ineffective. Maybe I need to have some more people over to test it out…
