Social media


Today is a big day!


It’s the day that Denise came to my rescue and created a Facebook page for my blog as well as a Pinterest account. I was already on Twitter, but wasn’t using it anymore because my hands were already full.


But Denise is the best – have I mentioned it yet? She refers to herself as my minion, but she’s much more than that. She’s my social media expert, my assistant and my love. *insert cheesy music here*


So please take a minute to like our brand new Facebook page and answer today’s question! We’ll post a different one every day, so it’s a great opportunity to discuss snail mail related topics with fellow letter writing enthusiasts. Be on the lookout for a giveaway or two… Soon!




While you’re at it, won’t you follow us on Twitter and give us a shout?




And I’m now completely in love with Pinterest and could spend hours and hours looking at pretty stationery, colorful mail art and unusual mailboxes. That would be dangerous, wouldn’t it?! Follow us and inspire us!




I’m proud to say that I now officially live in the 21st century!

Oh hello, social media…

Stationery of the Week #10


I thought it was time to do a snail mail related design! I love stationery featuring letters and envelopes, so I hope you too enjoy this one.




How does this work?

– Each notepad contains 25 sheets of paper.

– You can order 1, 2, 4 or 6 pads (25, 50, 100 or 150 sheets).

– Each sheet measures 5″x8″ (A5 size) and you can write on both sides of the paper.

– The paper is fountain pen friendly and printed professionally here in Canada.

– You have until Sunday, January 12 to purchase this stationery.

– You should receive it between January 27 and February 3.

– The cost includes shipping!

– The stationery will be mailed to your PayPal address.

– If you want it shipped elsewhere, please include a note with your payment!


Wondering if you can you trust me? Don’t take my word for it! Just look at my 100% positive feedback – 5 star reviews on Etsy.


Want matching labels to go with the stationery? There you go!


Labels SOTW 10


How does this work?

– You can order 140, 280 or 400 labels.

– Each label measures 68mm x 21mm.

– You have until Sunday, January 12 to purchase the labels.

– You should receive them between January 27 and February 3.

– The cost includes shipping!

– The labels will be mailed to your PayPal address.

– If you want them shipped elsewhere, please include a note with your payment!


Just purchase the labels, check out with PayPal, and email me to let me know exactly how you’d like your labels to be personalized (you can also specify any other free font you’d like to use). I’ll send you a proof and will get the labels printed professionally as soon as I hear back from you. The labels will possibly ship directly from my printer, so you might get the notepads separately.


Help me spread the word! Remember, this stationery is only available for a week. If you purchase this design, and if you post about this somewhere (on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, your blog, a penpal group or anywhere else on the Internet), you will receive a free surprise with your purchase. Surprises could include additional sheets of stationery, postcards, notecards, envelopes, deco tape, or anything else that us snail mailers love! Share this link: or use the image below. Then just leave a comment on this post or email me privately with the link to your post, and I’ll make sure to enclose your goodies with the stationery.

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.
