The Lovely and talented Joelle of Moxie Design Studios has outdone herself this time with a design incorporating snazzy art from DesignHer Gals. They made a Mindy Gal and everything! Go check them out… a percentage of each purchase goes to fund care for Stage Four breast cancer patients. And they make chic, fun paper goods. What’s not to like
