Busy, busy…


I’m too busy for a decent post today, and I’m taking a full-time class this weekend so I’ll probably be quiet, but here’s a quick update!


Rainbow Mexico

Mexico, March 2008


Fun things this week:

+ apple picking with Louis-Justin

+ rainbows

+ discussions & debates with friendly classmates

+ new projects in mind

+ thinking about new letter sets that I want to design

+ receiving a letter from my wonderful penpal Jamie

+ little handwritten notes from my son

+ cold mornings and hot showers

+ other people cooking for me

+ being alive


Not so fun:

- allergies

- lack of sleep

- crazy, restless kitties


Looking forward to:

* my trip to Mexico in March 2012

* a good night’s sleep

* Halloween

She likes to dance and write letters…


Sian from the UK would like to have some penpals. Doesn’t she have a pretty name?!

Sian 1


Look at the cute snail she drew on her envelope! I almost want to adopt him.

Sian 2


I love the “Daisy” stamp she used… My son was a fan of Thomas the Tank Engine as a toddler. He even dressed up as Thomas for Halloween a few years ago! He was adorable.

So, who wants to write with Sian? And who wants to send me a penpal ad?


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.
