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 37.
I'm French Canadian and fell
in love with an American,
so I'm now living in Vermont
with my wife.

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 pens 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 in the
Stationery Kingdom.

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

She's 40 years old,
from South Dakota,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
