Prize Explosion! #29


Today is a busy day for us. We are putting together a really great newsletter, with all kinds of fun resources for letter writing enthusiasts, for the League of Extraordinary Penpals. It will come out on October 1st. That’s in 2 days, so now would be a great time to become a LEP member! There are some super special extraordinary membership offers going on.


The other things we are busy with are¬†announcing the winner of the postcard grab bag AND putting together a new giveaway for today. First things first, the winner of the postcards is Angela Hogan in the US. Congratulations! Please send me an email with your mailing address and I’ll get these cards sent your way.




There has been one particular giveaway that has been super exciting for you guys, so before this month of giveaways comes to an end we wanted to offer it one more time! You guessed it, it’s the Housewife stationery notepad!






Entering this giveaway is simple. All you have to do is leave a comment here on the blog and finish this sentence: “Life is wonderful because…” We will put all the entries in a random generator and pick a winner tomorrow.


For me, life is wonderful because I am loved and pumpkin lattes exist.


Come back tomorrow to see if you’re the winner and to see the final Prize Explosion! Good luck!

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.
