Do what you love – Free Printable




I’m sharing a free printable today.

Do what you love… then you will always be smiling.

Inspired by my uncle Frank.


We have moved from the big smoke

to a small town called Yamba.

And that’s just what I plan to do…


I got my brushes out,

And started doing what I love.

Designing and creating.



I heard a story yesterday…


Uncle Frank had shown my brother a pic of his son smiling, and he said,


“See that smile?

He’s smiling, because he loves what he does.


If you do what you love, then you will always be smiling.”


It’s so true I think.


That last line…

Then you will always be smiling, is my favourite.





I thought you’d like to have a copy of this too, so you can print and frame it yourself.


Because everyone deserves a little bit of inspiration from uncle Frank.


He was always smiling, because he was doing what he loved.

{And showing others how to do the same.}

Gregarious, cheeky, one of those uncles you looked up to and wanted to hang out with.

I think he’d be pretty chuffed if a few more people got inspired by his actions and words.





Are you doing what you love?



Live with Love,



PS: We are on the last round of plans for our new house,

{another thing I love}.

We have a long hallway,

and I’m thinking this quote will be taking pride of place on that wall.

Do what you love… then you will always be smiling.

      Sometimes the simple things are often the best, I’ve seen “do what you love” many times before, but the extra line and the story behind it makes it even more special now.

  9. Love, love, love this quote! Your uncle sounds like a great guy!
