I sent these cards pretty late so most of them probably haven’t arrived yet… Has anyone reading this received their card already?

  1. Hi Julie!! I got my card a couple days ago! Thank you so much! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! :) I’m sending a card out to you…it will be a new year’s greeting! :)

  2. Hi Julie, I received mine a couple of days ago also. Thank you very much. You have such pretty handwriting.

  3. My card arrived yesterday. What a lovely surprise! Many thanks :-)

  4. I’m thinking I want to get on the card list. Lovely!

  5. What gorgeous stationery! I had a dream last night that I went to a book sale and they had a table full of stationery…I offered to buy it all!! HA! Too funny!!!! I’m obsessed with pretty paper!

  6. What pretty stationery! I especially like the typewritter and tea pot! Is there anyplace I could buy some?

  7. Jaclyn, isn’t that paper pretty?! I’m not sure where Korina found it, but she lives in Guam so maybe that’s where the stationery is from. (Unless she purchased it online…)

  8. Korina’s drawings always bring a tear of joy to my eye – she’s got you SPOT ON! The paper in that notebook is lovely too!

  9. I see my name! yay! I haven’t received my card yet, but I’m excited to see it in the mail…although, I’m not sure that I’ll be waiting out in front of the post office this time, there’s too much snow. ;)

  10. Enjoy the stationery! Will send you some more when I can :) Happy New Year :) God bless!

  11. Hi Julie,

    Your card wishing me a wonderful 2013 arrived on December 31st… which is the perfect date for such a card to arrive! Thank you very much & I hope your 2013 will be filled with love, friendship and mail!

  12. Thanks for the card Julie! And I LOVE that notebook with Darkness girl! SO cool!


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.
