This is a big step for me. I used to not like the look of my handwriting and thought it made the page look messy. I first experimented with handwriting on this layout way back in my last college scrapbook.
Then came the wedding scrapbook and wanting a consistent look, I typed everything. Toward the end of that project, there were definitely places where I thought handwriting would actually work better.
Fast forward to this 2004 scrapbook, I decided try it some more. For this book, I did about 50-50 typing versus handwriting.
The Good: I think handwriting looks more personal and it goes with the homey-scrapbook-from-days-of-yore feeling I like to go for.
The Not So Good: I still don’t like my handwriting 100%. I like it more when I am writing smaller bits, rather than big paragraphs. It’s probably because I have a hard time writing a straight line, being a lefty.
I also have tiny handwriting. Looking at it now, I have a tendency to scrunch everything together, even when it might look better to add some space between lines. Then again, I can’t write straight and bunching things together helps me keep it in line.
What do you think? Do you like your handwriting?
