Stationery of the Week #15


It was raining this morning, but now the sun is shining… Just in time for this new SOTW design!




This cute stationery was designed using clipart by Prettygrafik Design. What you see is a scan, so the quality is better in person! And if you’re wondering why I love lemons so much, just read this post


So how does this work?

– Each notepad includes 24 sheets of paper.

– Each sheet measures 5″x8″ (≈A5 size) and you can write on both sides of the paper.

– The paper is fountain pen friendly and printed professionally here in Canada.

– You have until Wednesday, August 6 to purchase this stationery.

– You should receive it between August 18 and August 25.

– The cost includes shipping!

– The stationery will be mailed to your PayPal address.

– If you want it shipped elsewhere, please include a note with your payment!




* This design is no longer for sale, but feel free to check out my stationery shop on Etsy for more letter sets! La Papierre *


Wondering if you can trust me? Don’t take my word for it! Just look at my 100% positive feedback – 5 star reviews on Etsy.

I Am Washipocalypse


I felt like copying Julie and making a handwritten post. I pretty much think that every little thing she does is perfect, so I want to be like her.


Denise Washi



Before I go, I want to remind you of a few things. I will do this in list form, because I love lists about as much as I love washi tape. You can expect more list posts from me in the future.


1. Remember how I mentioned my superhero status in the League of Extraordinary Penpals? Guess what? You can be a superhero too!


2. Today is the last day to take advantage of our current SOTW sale. Last week we brought back all of previous SOTWs, 1 – 14. This is a great opportunity for you to stock up on a variety of really great stationery!


3. Our Facebook group is exactly 1 month old today and we are really excited about the snail mail & penpal related conversation that’s going on there. Like our page and join us!


4. One of the great ways to show off your creativity and connect with other penpallers around the world is for you to send us your penpal ad OR be featured as Penpal of the Week. We would love to feature you here on the blog.

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.
