Me, Winners & Sisters!


It’s me! I’m still here! Trying to make the most of my summer… :)


I really needed a break from blogging, so that’s why I’ve been kind of MIA lately. Spending most of my time in front of a computer was driving me crazy! And since I spend time daily on La Papierre and the League of Extraordinary Penpals (especially on our little private Facebook group/community!), I could no longer take care of this blog as well. But hopefully I can start posting again from time to time in the coming weeks.


I’m still trying to get pregnant… Maybe August will be my lucky month?! Thanks to everyone who participated in my stationery giveaway! I like several of the names that people suggested, but Martin and I still don’t agree on boy names. However, I’m still picking 2 winners – well, is!


So… drumroll… Kerry Anne Fudge and Bekka/Becky will both get some stationery from me – congrats, ladies! Please email me your address so that I can send you some stationery goodness ASAP.


It will be my son’s birthday on August 8 (I can’t believe that he’ll be 9 years old!), and I plan on doing 2 fun things that day: hosting a Club Penguin birthday party, and having a special sale at La Papierre. It will be announced exclusively through my mailing list, so feel free to subscribe if you’d like to know about the surprise when it happens.


I still have one baby envelope grab bag for sale here and a few School Boy letter sets for sale here!


Today I’m putting my Sisters letter sets on clearance… They normally sell for $10 each but I’m offering you guys a 40% discount through my blog! Only $6 per set + shipping… This is a large set (A4, full sheet, 8.5″ x 11″), so the shipping costs are a bit higher than for my regular A5 sets.


You can choose your favorite combo below (while supplies last):


10 sheets of paper and 10 envelopes (SOLD OUT)
12 sheets of paper and 8 envelopes (SOLD OUT)
14 sheets of paper and 6 envelopes (SOLD OUT)
16 sheets of paper and 4 envelopes (SOLD OUT)
18 sheets of paper and 2 envelopes (SOLD OUT)
20 sheets of paper (SOLD OUT)


This design is professionally printed on a smooth finish matte text paper (90 gr/m² weight, 92 brightness). It is high quality and thick enough to write on both sides of the paper if you wish to do so. Each sheet measures approximately 8.5″ x 11″ or 216mm x 279mm (A4 size) and each matching envelope is 4 1/8″ x 9 1/2″ or 241mm x 105mm (#10), so the paper fits perfectly in the envelope when folded in thirds. This kit comes nicely packaged in a clear resealable cello bag. Each kit includes a postcard + bookmark!

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.
