Yay for snow!


Hello darlings! I hope everyone had a great week. Mine was lovely – we had 45 centimeters of snow a few days ago and now we have a huge mound of snow in the backyard! It’s probably at least 15 feet tall. Louis-Justin and I have a lot of fun sliding together…

The view from my balcony this morning. My poor little car!


We also spent some quality time inside, playing board games, watching movies (Ponyo yesterday), reading… Even Arnaud likes to read, apparently!

I haven’t written one single letter so far, but I’m hoping to at least finish my novel to Laura next week. And then maybe I can finally start writing back to Jessica, Sandra and Lisa who have been waiting for a reply since November!


Thanks to everyone who voted in my last poll. Only 144 people did, but I know that it wasn’t such an exciting topic for you guys. Here are the results anyway!

And this week, something a little more fun:


How quickly do you usually write back to your penpals?


Thanks in advance for voting!


If any of you have to deal with emotional issues right now or struggle with their mental health and would like to talk about it to a penpal who can relate, Lady Kayy is still looking for participants for her Deep Letters Correspondence Project. I’m sure it could be great for anyone who’s not feeling too well and needs someone to confide in.


Well, time for fun in the snow with my little guy! I’m looking forward to the UFC with my friends tonight… What are your plans for the weekend? See you tomorrow!

Kelsey’s blog: Me and My Nail Polish


I honestly can’t remember the last time I wore nail polish and I actually wonder how many times I did in my whole life (probably less than 10). However, I think it looks good on other people! I’m just too lazy to care I suppose. Maybe I should purchase a bottle or two and ask my sister to do my nails! I’d probably go for a dark red / burgundy or maybe black. To all the girls who wear nail polish out there… What are your favorite colors and / or favorite styles?


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.
