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 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.
