Prize Explosion! #28


So much stationery, so little time. It is easy for me to feel this way living here at the headquarters of Penpal of the Week, La Papierre and the League of Extraordinary Penpals. I sure hope that Heather Sisco in Canada will find some extra time for letter writing, because she won the stationery grab bag! I can’t believe that you write to the real life non-pony version of pinkie pie. Congratulations! Please send me an email and I’ll get this pack of stationery sent out to you.




Today’s prize is a grab bag of postcards. There are 18 postcards in this pack, and they are oh so fun!








To win this pack of postcards, you can answer our question on Rafflecopter. And because we’re extra generous, we will give you extra chances to win. The more you follow us and share about us, the more opportunities you have!

Prize Explosion! #27


Oh weekend, you are welcome here! How about for you? We don’t have a lot of plans scheduled for this weekend and that feels nice. What does your weekend look like?


For one special person this weekend just got a little better! Congrats, Lisa Nicole in the US! You just won the ancestor notecards! Will you send me an email with your mailing address so that I can get them sent to you?


For those of you who didn’t win but fell in love with the vintage notecards, guess what? They are on sale today!





The sale is over – thank you!




We have discovered that stationery grab bags are pretty popular with you letter writers, so we decided to put together another one for today’s giveaway. There are so many sheets in this pack! To be honest, I packed them away nicely to be shipped out and forgot to count them. But trust me, there’s a lot and they are wonderful!













There is a variety of shapes and sizes and they could all be yours! But you’ll have to tell us about your favorite penpal on Rafflecopter to earn a chance to win. You can earn extra chances by following us and telling your friends about us too!

September is coming to an end and it is bittersweet. On one hand, these giveaways have been a TON of fun! But on the other hand, we are missing the Penpal of the Week interviews and the Quirky Penpal Ads! We love giving, but we also love featuring you! We’ve got a page you can check out so you can learn all about how to participate with us here on the blog. Check it out!


Good luck in today’s giveaway! Have a super weekend and we’ll see you back here tomorrow!

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.
