Fun personalised stationary... for a good cause

I love personalised stationary and have just recently discovered a new website, called Design-Her-Gals. I don't know how I didn't know about this before! It is basically a website which lets you design your own little characters, save them, and use them in e-card, and printed stationary such as notepads, greeting cards etc!

I was stunned at how easy it was to create a virtual avatar of myself with the little Dressing Room application! The outfits I was able to create remind me of some that I own myself, like this one with the grey sheepskin jacket (the real one comes from Joseph), black trousers, and red boots; not to talk about the accessories!!! Obviously for now I only own non-exotic birkins and this croc one lives in my dreams, but the fact that it was possible to add the Blackberry just sold the whole thing to me (I'm part of Crackberry-holics Anonymous as well, not just Fashionistas Anonymous)...

I've ordered a couple of notelets sets for me and for one of my friends, hopefully she will like the character I created for her! They should be here soon.

The best thing about this website however is not the designs or the stationary, it is the idea behind all of this: basically, for each sale, 5% of the proceeds are donated to the Gal to Gal Foundation, which helps Stage IV breast cancer patients live in what is one of the most serious conditions ever. So, who else is up for getting their own design, fun, fashionista stationary whilst helping one of the most important causes out there?

Check it out on http://www.designhergals.co.uk/ for Europe and UK.
