Creepy Doll Giveaway Winners


Halloween is in less than 2 weeks, and we still don’t have any decorations in our new house! However, we have lots of Halloween stationery in our office. Does that count?


The Creepy Doll giveaway has now ended, and it’s time to reveal the winners! Five people will receive this notepad, hopefully in time for Halloween:


Creepy Doll couldn’t have picked a better first number to start things off – #13! Perfect for Halloween. Comment number 13 is by Lindsay: congrats!


Winner 1


Then lucky number 7 wins a notepad too – congrats, Shelia!


Winner 2


Number 22 is Meredith, so we have our third winner!


Winner 3


Then Jackie wins, but I wonder if we should hand deliver the notepad when she comes visit?!


Winner 4


And the last winner is Nicole, who seems ready to write some spooky letters!


Winner 5


Congrats, guys. You can expect your Creepy Doll notepad in the mail shortly.


To anyone who didn’t win, you can still get your hands on some Halloween stationery in the Etsy shop.

I love Halloween, but I don’t care for horror movies, and Denise doesn’t like anything too suspenseful, so I’m wondering if you have some fun Halloween movie suggestions for us! Ideally something a bit more exciting than Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie, but nothing with blood and guts. Thanks!

Eva in Spain


Hello from Vermont! Yes, I know that Julie made an official post to let you know that we’re settled in a new country now, but it’s fun for me to say hello from the States too!


Our neighborhood is so charming and cozy; I can’t wait to give out candy to the trick-or-treaters on Halloween!


Speaking of Halloween… have you downloaded the free printables?! Have you commented on the post so you can win the creepy stationery pad!? Have you purchased the Halloween themed stationery in the Etsy shop?!


I hope you will take full advantage of stocking up on the fun stationery opportunities of the season! Here’s something else that’s fun… a new Quirky Penpal Ad from Eva!







If you are interested in connecting with Eva, you can send her an email:


That’s it for today! I’m off to finish a few more work things and then I’m excited to go on a grocery store adventure this evening. Julie’s a Trader Joe’s virgin, so I’m particularly looking forward to popping her TJ’s cherry!



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.
