Somehow I just came across this amazing website that converts your handwriting into a font TOTALLY FREE!!
At http://www.myscriptfont.com/ you can download their PDF template document, write each character in the correct box, scan it, upload it to the site, give it a name and add it to the fonts you use on your computer. It's so quick and easy! I am seriously obsessed with this right now. I've already created 3 fonts in the past 30 minutes.
