Cupcake Stationery Giveaway


My last blog post was about food, and it looks like I still have food on my mind!


Cupcakes 1


I just posted new cupcake stationery in the Etsy shop last night, and Denise suggested that we do a giveaway here on Penpal of the Week. She’s very generous, that wife of mine. I love that about her!


Cupcakes 2


So if you’d like to win 24 sheets of stationery (a $10 value)… Just post a comment and let us know what your favorite cupcake flavor is.

If you love cupcakes too much to choose just one flavor… Just tell us what your top 3 is!

The winner will be announced here on the blog tomorrow afternoon, so make sure to come back on Wednesday to see if you won! Denise will also post a penpal ad, so you have 2 things to look forward to.


Cupcakes 5


If you’re curious and would like to know what our favorite cupcake flavors are, then I’ll tell you: Denise likes lemon or strawberry, and my favorite is red velvet. Your turn!



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.
