Holidays! Birthdays!


November and December are busy months for us in terms of celebrations and parties. Denise turned 40 on November 6, we celebrated our first year anniversary on November 17, we were invited to spend Thanksgiving with some new church friends on November 26, my mom turned 69 on December 1, our friend Jess turned 35 on December 7, and tomorrow (the 12th) is my birthday. Then of course there are the holidays… Whew! It’s a fun time of year for sure, but that partly explains why we haven’t been active on the blog lately.


Before I kick off my birthday weekend celebrations (I have big plans for tonight: a double chocolate chip Frappuccino at Starbucks and some letter writing!), I thought I’d show you the new stationery that we put up for sale in the Etsy shop recently. If you’re interested in the Christmas design, I’d suggest ordering it as soon as possible so that you can (possibly) receive it in time for the holidays. Or not – it will still be pretty paper for winter!

A Cup of Galaxy has been so popular that we’re almost already out of sheets. If there’s enough interest in it though, we might decide to get more printed.


Oh and something exciting for those of you who want more options – we now sell some designs in packs of 12 sheets for $5, 24 sheets for $10 and 48 sheets for $18.


Alright, I’m off to start celebrating my 36th birthday! I might eat sushi more than once this weekend… That’s the life!

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.
