Creating a Custom Photoshop Brush

Have you ever wanted to create your own Photoshop brush? I have many shapes that I like, but find it much easier to use the brush tool. I have converted some of my favorite shapes and even designed a few originals of my own. If you use particular word groupings, these can be made into a brush. Do you have a logo? It can be made into a brush. I have put together a tutorial for making these brushes.
