words to live by

“a no.2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.”
– joyce a. meyers
it’s officially back-to-school time. and while i am officially a post grad working gal, my fondness for school supplies of any size, shape or color, will always live on.
and to celebrate the arrival of autumn, every year i love nothing more than to stock up on bright and shiny school/office supplies – classic composition journals, muji fine point pens, rainbow colored post its and some shocking neon file folders…
…and pencils!
so when i stumbled across earmark’s cool & clever no.2 pencil collections, i was instantly obsessed. offered in an array of pop shades and shiny metallics with words & phrases that make you giggle – “adventure awaits,” “awesome,” “oh happy day” and my absolute fave – “stay classy.”
this would be a fantastic gift for all of my inspiring teacher pals and grad school friends, don’t you think? what’s your fave?
here’s to staying classy.

    yes, I am a school supply fanatic as well, I have more notebooks and sketchpads than I have thoughts, and pens run wild wherever I am. These pencils are showing up at just the right time, I have a friend who I know would be cheered by them, thanks for sharing 🙂
