Happy Halloween


I know I have already made an Incoming – Outgoing post this week, but today is Halloween and Julie and I have received a couple pieces of fun mail for the occasion.




From SuZi in Kentucky





From Lisa Nicole in California


I wanted to share a photo of Louis-Justin dressed up as a magician, but he lost his cape at school and now he’s out trick-or-treating. I’m curious about the kinds of treats that get passed out here in Québec. I wonder if I will be able to sweet talk a Wunderbar from him.


I’d love to hear about your Halloween. Leave me a comment and tell me about it.

Stationery of the Week Grab Bags


Denise and I prepared something special for you this week: SOTW grab bags! These packs are perfect for those of you who like to have a variety of designs, and for people who would like to sample the quality of our stationery. So this is a good opportunity for anyone who doesn’t own many (or any) of the previous SOTW to get their hands on several at a time!


Each grab bag includes 6 different designs and no two grab bags are exactly the same, so feel free to purchase a couple! Here are a few of the designs that might be included in your grab bags (not all of them are pictured, so you might be surprised when you open yours):








So how does this work?

– Each grab bag includes 24 sheets of paper: 6 designs x 4 sheets each.

– 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, November 5 to purchase the grab bags.

– You should receive them between November 13 and November 20.

– 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.


* These grab bags are 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.

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.
