Desktop Background

I saw this pencil case yesterday on Design is Mine and had to instantly save the image as my desktop background. It’s crunch time (well – it always seems to be crunch time) and I’ve got lots of writing to do (for my PhD life and my blogging life). I’m hoping this will motivate me to write every day.

Write pencil case, $14, Sam Made

Other reasons to love this pencil case:

1. It’s a simple design.
2. It’s handmade by Samantha Wagner.
3. It’s made in Canada (Vancouver, BC).

And when I do eventually finish my PhD…I’m going to buy myself these.
