Hello! It’s been a while, but I hope everyone is having an alright summer so far. Over here, I have been working on a few projects, and my daughters are catching up with their summer reading and writing activities.
Lately, my daughter has been into word search, so I decided to make my own using my handwriting fonts. I have always been a font and calligraphy/handwriting addict, so I can swear that I can spend watching calligraphy videos instead of Netflix. Several years ago, I took an online calligraphy class, but I haven’t been fully able to embrace my work. My biggest issue is that I have an unstable and inconsistent handwriting. Somedays, I am able to achieve that “pretty to post handwriting,” while somedays I feel like “my toddler has better handwriting than me.” Maybe I am lacking in sufficient practice or I may just not be patient enough.
While experimenting with several calligraphy pens, brush pens, pens, and pencils, I decided to make my handwriting fonts with the ifontmaker app on my iPad. It allows you to edit your handwriting and have that perfection and consistency that I especially strive for. The ifontmaker was straightforward and extremely easy to use! Ever since I have been using my fonts here and there on my website and work.
Feel free to download the summer word search and spend a quiet afternoon with your little ones! I hope this little summer activity will make your summer day brighter. (These are only for personal use only.) And follow me on my Instagram account @byasamihasegawa for more tips and more.
