I can relate to just about every print from Curly Girl Design, especially the popular, “I just don’t like to see you waste your time,” he said. “Well then,” she said, “close your eyes.” Whimsical, girly and dead-on, we’ve got our own eyes on the “Do good often” t-shirts.

I’ve been a fan of Story People for years, and “Quiet Pride,” which says, “There has never been a day when I have not been proud of you, I said to my daughter, though some days I’m louder about other stuff so it’s easy to miss that” still makes me teary.
