Sandahl in Texas

 

Two exciting things are happening today. 1.) The new Sharpie pens Julie and I bought arrived and 2.) I’m sharing a new Quirky Penpal Ad with you!

I hope you’ll send out a letter to Sandahl if you feel like you’d make a good connection with her. I’m excited that she is getting back to writing letters! Wouldn’t it be fun if one of our readers from Greece sent her a letter… who knows, maybe an eventual trip could be planned and no. 7 on Sandahl’s list could come true!

A mom, a daughter and 912 sheets of paper

 

Picture my mom and I walking back and forth in my house with stacks of paper in our hands for 3 or 4 hours. That’s pretty much what happened a couple of weekends ago!

 

If you’d like to see what my mom and I look like to help with the visuals, let me try to find some photos for you.

 

There you go!

 

Maman Julie

 

These might not be our most recent photos together, but they’re certainly some of my favorites.

 

So just imagine that my mom’s hair is shorter and whiter while mine is longer, and that I have bigger & more covered boobs. Ta-da! That’s us a couple of Saturdays ago.

 

Why were we running around with piles of stationery? Because my mom is helpful and supportive, and she thinks that being a part of my projects is fun. Isn’t my mom amazing?!

 

Thanks to the person who gave birth to me, I now have 38 grab bags available for whoever would like to purchase them on the blog. As soon as they sell out, I’ll remove the PayPal button.

 

Each pack is $12 (+ $2 shipping for international customers) and includes a total of 24 sheets in 18 different designs:

  • 6 designs x 2 sheets each
  • 12 designs x 1 sheet each

 

The following 49 designs are included in the grab bags, and none of them are available for sale anymore (except for this one). They all sold out, but I had enough single sheets to create grab bags – isn’t it your lucky day?! I mean, Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland!!!

Grab Bags 2
Grab Bags 3
The grab bags are sold out!

 
You won’t get all 49 designs in your grab bag (and unfortunately it’s not possible to make special requests since the packs are already made and sealed), but what you will get though is an assortment of 18 rare La Papierre designs. THAT MY MOM HAS TOUCHED! Certainly that’s the best part about these stationery packs. Oh and they smell like maple syrup! I kid you not. That’s how magical my mom’s hands are.

 

I hope you have half as much fun going through your grab bags as my mom and I did when we put them together!

Hello!

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.
