The Penguins of Madagascar


Here’s a colorful penpal ad by a 10 year old girl from Poland: Natalia!

It might be a bit hard to read, but the note at the bottom says: “If interested please mail older sister!


July 2nd is only 2 days away, so happy birthday, Natalia! Your drawings are lovely.


I’ve never watched The Penguins of Madagascar (the series), but I love the Madagascar movies! I saw the 3rd one with Louis-Justin last week and we both really enjoyed it. Has anyone else seen it?

Rimouski, Maria & Carleton


I’m back from my little trip!


I had a nice time with my son, my mom and her friends despite the fact that it rained all week. I probably spent about 20 hours on the road, driving my mom’s car. It was a great road trip!


Here are a few pictures that were taken in Rimouski, where it was really foggy…

And here are some photos from Maria & Carleton in Gaspésie.

I spotted quite a few post offices along the way, but only took a picture of this one.

Now that I’m back home, I’ll post some penpal ads this weekend!

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.
