Did you know that today is National Handwriting Day? I found this interesting quiz and article on Time.com about cursive writing. In trying to learn brush lettering, I’m told that it’s best to practice the old fashioned cursive to be more successful.
I find that I am handwriting about half the time and keyboard typing the rest. It’s easier for me to write longer works (like this blog post) on the keyboard yet I still have a handwritten to-do list. I’ve also found that when I hand write something, I tend to remember it better – like driving directions or a recipe.
As a digi scrapper, I’d like to have my own handwriting as my journaling font. I’ve used YourFonts to do this. You basically print out their template, write your letters, scan and upload to them. They’ll return a digital version of your handwriting. You can try it and preview it on the screen for free.
For me, it took a few tries to get the template completed just right. But once done, it was easy to upload and veiw on the screen. If you like what you see, you can purchase it for $9.95.
How are you celebrating National Handwriting Day?
