Rameshwari in India 2.0


Guess what, my letter writing friends? We have a penpal ad! It’s an update from one of our followers who sent in an ad back in June of 2014.





You can contact Rameshwari by email if you would like. Or you can send her a letter in the mail!


Today I have enjoyed:

> key lime pie

> brainstorming stationery ideas with Julie

> cooler temperatures

> my hair


And of course I have enjoyed posting this penpal ad. I hope our mailbox will be filled with even more ads soon. Read the guidelines about creating your very own Quirky Penpal Ad here.

Our Outgoing Mail


In between mailing La Papierre stationery orders as well as SSS packs and keeping the League of Extraordinary Penpals going, Julie and I do get to send a few pieces of mail sent off to our penpals!


First I will share Julie’s outgoing mail.



This adorable little kitty went to Charlotte in the UK.



This artistic envelope was sent to Emy in the UK.



Cat buddies mailed to Erin in Canada.



This is my very favorite envelope that my wife has made. It was sent to Julie in the States. I love the way the children are gathered around the address!



Lisa in France is a dog lover, so this envelope is perfect for her.



Julie used random elements to dress up this envelope for Rebecca in the UK.



These sleepy bunnies were sent to Sofie in Sweden.


And now I’ll share my outgoing mail with you.



I sent this cute dragon to Sofie in Sweden.



A simple envelope for Sherri in the USA.



This envelope of randomness went to Michelle in the States.



These birds flew to Katie in the States.



I made this envelope out of a doily for Julie in Canada.



This mail themed envelope was for Christopher in the USA.



This envelope for Aimee in the States is full of random goodness.


Sometimes I feel really great about the envelopes I make. And then there are times where my great intentions really turn out to be not so aesthetically pleasing.


Either way, I do really enjoy the process of writing a letter and decorating an envelope and it’s the journey that counts!



My name is Julie and I'm 35.
I live in Québec (close to Montréal) and I speak French.

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 cats 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 amongst
piles of cats and stationery.

Denise blogs here
from time to time and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 39 years old,
from the United States,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
