A Bouquet of Sharpened Pencils

Growing up, when the end of the summer seemed to spring up out of nowhere and the vacations came to an end, there was always a little bit of excitement amongst the sadness about summer's finality. And the reason for that excitement was not just the cooler weather on the horizon, but also because I loved going back to school shopping. It took me hours to pick out new notebooks, pens, binders, pencils, and planners because these were important decisions. Oh and let's not leave out the highlighters...wonderful, magical things that they are. I loved organizing the supplies and labeling notebooks for each class and it makes me think of the line from You've Got Mail about a bouquet of sharpened pencils. 

It's weird not going back to school shopping anymore, so as the buses began running again and Target had it's annual school supplies sale, I headed out in search of filling the void. I ended up with a few new notebooks, pens and pencils, and excitement about the upcoming season. And I think office supply shopping should be a regular thing.

So as fall rapidly approaches and school is in full swing, there are also a few additions of paper goods in this space. Hand-drawn, whimsical, and simple, these notecards are perfect for any occasion. So sharpen a few pencils and add this stationery to your office/school supply stash!

For more information about the new notecards & additional photos, head over to the shop.

Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms. -Joe Fox, You've Got Mail
