Empowerment Journal & Pencil Holder

Journaling is essential to tapping into one’s creativity. Blank pages offer a world of opportunity for sketching, listing ideas and more. But sometimes we can feel stifled to put the pen to the paper. To help get those juices flowing, why not decorate a journal and a pencil cup to hold a variety of writing tools? By using vibrant papers, empowering quotes and storing their favorite writing tools in a colorful holder, students will feel motivated to crack open their journal and get busy!
