Barbara in Germany


A few weeks ago, Julie and I hosted some friends from the League of Extraordinary Penpals in our home and we had an amazing time hanging out together. One of the LEP members who attended the meetup wrote about our weekend filled with bacon jam, letter writing and a Cards Against Humanity party at the funeral home! I hope we will get to host another meetup this fall.



Gathered around the table to play with our favorite things: stationery, pens & stamps!


Maybe you’d like to spend some time with your stationery, pens and stamps and write a letter to Barbara…






As I close, I’ll leave you with a few photos that summarize the fun we’re having with our sons this summer!





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.

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.
