Now, lest one think we’ve lost our staples, we know Allie didn’t invent the pencil case. It’s just that it’s hard to imagine that anyone has ever taken more time to fine-tune the presentation of these items, not to mention that of the darling box pouches and wristlets that flesh out her collection. From the streamlined, classic cylindrical shapes she employs to the snappy intuition of designs like Tangerine Sprouts or Pig Silhouettes on Red, there’s a scheme for every sketcher, and the “flip side” of her products are just as pretty. The glee of a Chicken Dance, grace of an Autumn Breeze, and sense of completion in the Peapods with Green Herb Lining. The practicality of the Criss Cross coaster and the pizzazz of the Red Hippo Tissue Case. Whatever your pleasure, Alliebeans is there for you, and who knows? You just might get your first sample “on the house,” because the winner of today’s giveaway will receive the Keychain Pouch of his or her choice.
