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 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.
