Who wants a Christmas card?


I’m getting ready to write my Christmas cards… Or as I prefer to call them, my New Year cards! I’ll try to mail them in about a week or so…


Christmas Cards 1


I’ve enjoyed sending mail to blog readers recently (Who wants a letter from me?I want to write YOU a letter! –  Want a Halloween card?Sagittarius like me?) and I’d like to do it again. I have a stack of cards and I’m sending some of them to my penpals, but there will be some left. I’d love to send you one!


Christmas Cards 2


If you’re interested in receiving a card from me, just comment on this post and tell me anything that comes to mind! A few ideas: how you celebrate the holidays, what your biggest accomplishments in 2012 are, your resolutions for 2013… Or anything else you’d like to share with me! You have until December 4 to comment because that’s when I’ll write the cards. I’ll try to make them somewhat interesting – not just quick wishes with a signature! :P


Christmas Cards 3


If YOU want to send me some mail, my birthday is coming up! I’d love to hear from you.


And if you’re interested in free holiday cards, you have 2 days left to make your purchase at La Papierre.


Christmas Cards 4


So, who would like to get a card from me? :)

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.
