Our first man!


I was happy to receive a postcard from a man who’s looking for penpals!


I love Kiru’s handwriting. And wow, look at that stamp…


Here’s our first manly penpal ad:

Please note that I’m leaving for Mexico in 5 days, so if you want to order something from La Papierre before my vacation, you have until February 25 to do so!


Orders received after that date will be shipped after I return, in the week of March 12.

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.
