For all you 90s children out there

" Lisa Frank is not the name of a woman, it is the name of a movement, a culture, a way of living. It is a theory, a concept, a belief in something greater than yourself. It is the belief that all girls are entitled to dolphins covered with rainbows, jewel-encrusted frogs, and unicorns in acid-trip colors hugging each other. It is the ideology that no notebook is complete until it literally hurts your eyes to look at from so much color saturation. It is the hope that no school supply, no matter how insignificant, will be left un-bedazzled. It is the knowledge that your eraser cap, and that of your granddaughter’s, and her granddaughter’s after her, will not be some boring little nub–it will be a diamond covered with butterflies in a rainbow of colors. It is the dream of a better tomorrow."


That pretty much sums up my childhood. 

Me and Lisa Frank were BFFs.

I may or may not still have some bedazzled kitty folders to prove it.

You legitimately just got me so excited! I LOVED Lisa Frank as a child. I even wrote to her once and actually got a letter back. I can imagine that I have it around here somewhere.

Recently I saw a friend of mine wearing a very colorful shirt and said, "Ooooh! That looks like Lisa Frank!" She then proceeded to look at me like I was crazy...psh!

I read thoughtcatalog too! I read that entire article out loud to Kyle who was not amused. He said it should have been titled "10 Things 90s GIRLS will have to explain to their children". I kinda agree though..
