My Font July 5, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christie @ 4:58 am

I’m quite excited, as my handwriting is now a font.  🙂  Kimberly Geswein, who is incredibly talented (and a strong Christian who just moved to Orlando – just when we’re going back, too.  Bummer!) and has even had her fonts used in ads for Children’s Place, Skittles, etc., made it into a font which I named “Learning to Trust.”   (The fact that there have been over 2,000 downloads of the font and that lots of people have marked it their favorite has more to do with her talent than my handwriting, I think, but I like to pretend that my riting is just so amazing that thousands of people just HAD to have it in their collection.  Ha ha.)  I was getting quite irritated when writing my font because I kept having to rewrite it since the scanner kept cutting off my doodly faces and alphabet.  My handwriting kept getting messier and messier each aggravated time I redid it, and my “trademark” smiley faces kept getting fewer and fewer and sloppier and sloppier – but despite all of my frustrations, she did a great job.  I’m really excited about it because I do so much journaling when I scrapbook that it’s quite cool to be able to journal in my own writing.  I’ve already used it on almost every layout I’ve made since getting the font, and I’m having lots of fun using it.  It’s very readable, which is sometimes hard to find in a handwriting font, so it’s my new go-to scrapbooking journaling font.
