While I was traveling, I found the cutest pencils created by Curly Girl Design.
Lately, I have had an obsession with pencils. Delivered Monday were a batch of 1000 ProductSnob Pencils. They are perfect, white with silver hardware and www.productsnob.com in pink across one side of the pencil. To die for.
I wanted to do a little digging into the company who made these colorful pencils. Leigh Standley is the artist, writer and owner of Curly Girl Design, Inc.
