My Three Favorite Stationery Sets

Breast Cancer, Personal Development, Shop for A Cause

So much stationery, too little time. I could seriously shop for notecards and notepads all day long, but my life keeps getting in my way! In yesterday’s post, I promised that I would share some of my favorite items so far, and my Top 3 picks are below.

1. Say “Hi” to your favorite girlfriends with this cute set from Erin Condren. Proceeds of this set support breast cancer awareness, and she also offers purple and yellow ribbon stationery as well.

Erin Condren, $30

2. “Fab, fierce, AND glam!” That’s all I have to say about this set of notecards found on the effie’s paper website. This is how you send a statement through the mail!

effie's paper, $27

3. My philanthropic pal, Ebonie, worked with the gifted Little Miss Mika to commission this CUTE set of charitable notecards. Twenty percent of all orders will be donated to The Gye Nyame Empowerment Project (GNEP).

Little Miss Mika, $30

Any other fabulous stationery that I should know about? Please send me a link! I’m serious about my note-writing endeavors these days, and I want to make sure that my cards are as amazing as possible.

P.S. Have you decided who you’re writing a note to this week?
