January 12th, 2013



Can I still tell you how happy I am about the League of Extraordinary Penpals?! Will you find me annoying?! That’s OK, you can go ahead and tell me to shut up. But I most likely won’t. Haha! I’m just too proud of this project and I can’t wait for the first newsletter to come out on February 1st. It’s been so much fun working with Laura, Supreme Angel of my life and Partner of my dreams (yes, she paid me to write this). We’ve probably sent each other hundreds of emails since December and she hasn’t even started getting on my nerves yet! So it’s true that she’s the perfect business partner (& friend & penpal).


I also want to thank everyone who has purchased stationery from La Papierre lately (or talked about my stationery to their friends). 2013 is going so well for me and my little business so far!


Do you remember the last poll I posted on my blog? Here are the results.

Thanks to the 155 people who voted.


Now I’d like to know what your preference is: lined or unlined paper?


What do you write your letters on?


Thank you in advance for your vote!


What are your plans for the weekend? I have some work to do (namely designing the official LEP stationery), but it’s UFC night with the boys and tomorrow I’m invited to a turkey dinner! I love love love when other people cook for me. Ahhh… Life is good. I even started a gratitude journal recently. Does anyone else keep one?

Yay for snow!


Hello darlings! I hope everyone had a great week. Mine was lovely – we had 45 centimeters of snow a few days ago and now we have a huge mound of snow in the backyard! It’s probably at least 15 feet tall. Louis-Justin and I have a lot of fun sliding together…

The view from my balcony this morning. My poor little car!


We also spent some quality time inside, playing board games, watching movies (Ponyo yesterday), reading… Even Arnaud likes to read, apparently!

I haven’t written one single letter so far, but I’m hoping to at least finish my novel to Laura next week. And then maybe I can finally start writing back to Jessica, Sandra and Lisa who have been waiting for a reply since November!


Thanks to everyone who voted in my last poll. Only 144 people did, but I know that it wasn’t such an exciting topic for you guys. Here are the results anyway!

And this week, something a little more fun:


How quickly do you usually write back to your penpals?


Thanks in advance for voting!


If any of you have to deal with emotional issues right now or struggle with their mental health and would like to talk about it to a penpal who can relate, Lady Kayy is still looking for participants for her Deep Letters Correspondence Project. I’m sure it could be great for anyone who’s not feeling too well and needs someone to confide in.


Well, time for fun in the snow with my little guy! I’m looking forward to the UFC with my friends tonight… What are your plans for the weekend? See you tomorrow!

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.
