handmade pencil caseI was clicking around etsy this past weekend and discovered this adorable handmade girls’ pencil case that I love for so many reasons. The illustration is beyond precious of course, but the I Heart Books slogan is really the kicker. It comes courtesy of Vancouver’s Kukubee, and I might just need one for myself too.

Enough with the “My kid can beat up your honor student” bumper stickers. I want my daughters to be proud of being smart and working hard. Also? Of having cute school accessories. –Liz
