I’m jealous of people who have unique addresses. Mine is so boring! I wish I lived in Rainbow City or Brilliant, AL!


This got me researching fun city names and I found out that there’s a town named Dinosaur in Colorado. How awesome is that?!


What’s your favorite city or street name? Who has a special address?

My cats on stamps!


If you ordered something from La Papierre or received a letter from me in 2013, chances are you saw my new personalized stamps on the envelope. They were a present from my mom – I designed the stamps online at Canada Post, my dear mommy paid for them and they were delivered to me just in time for my birthday.


They were made with photos I took of my heart shaped sushi, Sphynx cats, Bengal cat and favorite Smurf:

Has anyone else ever ordered personalized stamps before? Can you do that in every country?

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.
