I swapped slams for years (10+), then got overwhelmed with life and decided to quit a few years after I had my son and went back to school…


Well my penpal Cindy (who I met for the first time in June 2013 and for the second time in March 2014) sent me a couple of full slams recently, and that totally made me want to start doing slams again!


I posted this little ad on Facebook tonight, and I figured why not also share it here?!


Slam 1

Slam 2

Slam 3


I made a slam a few days ago, and I’m already itching to make more!

I’ll write 36 letters – do you want one?


36 project 1

36 project 2


ETA: I moved to the United States! Here’s my new address.




To summarize:

– I’ll write a letter to 36 different and new people over the next 12 months.

– This is an ongoing project, so you have until December 2015 to participate.

– To receive a letter, you can post a comment below, tell me about yourself (or the person you want me to write to), and ask me a few questions to get me going.

– Another way to receive a letter is to write me a letter!


Please share this with your friends… I’d love to meet and write to new people! Thank you. See you in the mail…

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.
