12 Sweet School Supplies To Get You Excited For The New Year

Years of schooling have conditioned me into thinking that the calendar year starts in September rather than January, and lasts until June. September goes hand in hand with resolutions for the new year, pumpkin spice lattes, and fresh school supplies whether, I've graduated or not.

Whether you are still mentally stuck on an academic calendar or are really heading back to school (lucky!), we could all use some fresh school supplies to start the year off right. Before you go ahead and buy those classic marble notebooks and standard ballpoint pens, give these handmade beauties a peek.
