Let’s do something crazy!


So today is Black Friday, and as you know, a lot of people will be going crazy in the stores this weekend. Because you know, they really want those $20 shoes, and it’s the last pair, so it’s perfectly acceptable to fight someone else for it.


But we’re all civilized here, and of course we wouldn’t do that. I’m still in the mood to do something crazy though, so I thought I’d offer my dear blog readers and customers a 40% coupon to use in my shop in the next 4 days!




Why give as much as 40% off? Because I just have this one bookshelf to store my stationery, and we need to make room for new inventory that will be for sale in early 2015. I asked Denise if we could store stationery in the fridge, and she said no. SO PLEASE HELP US OUT!


Stationery bookshelf


Start shopping at La Papierre right away! Everything is 40% off, which means that you can get letter sets for as low as $4 each, and postcards for $0.30 each! They make great Christmas or birthday presents for penpals.


You need to make sure to enter coupon code THANKS2014 before checking out (with a minimum purchase of $5), because no refund will be sent after you’ve paid. Etsy applies the coupon immediately and the cost will be adjusted automatically. If you’ve never used a coupon code before, Etsy has this very helpful article right here.


Enjoy! Happy Black Friday!

Stationery of the Week #26


As many of you know, I only wear skirts and dresses. If I was born about a century earlier and it was the 1890s, this is probably what I would look like! Fashion was so wonderful in the late 1800s and early 1900s…

My name is Julie and I'm 34.
I live in Québec (close to Montréal) and I speak French.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of cats and a day full of hugs.

Read my Top 10 Quirks here.

This is me with my wife,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after amongst
piles of cats and stationery.

Denise blogs here
from time to time and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 39 years old,
from the United States,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
