Often when I’m rubbing Julie’s shoulders or playing with her hair she will say these 4 familiar words to me as soon as I stop… “Again, again. More, more.” It’s not said with a demanding inflection. She kind of has this tone that says something like this: “That felt so amazingly good and I can’t possibly go on without you continuing to do it some more…  Pleeeeeease!”


On Monday, I posted lots of photos of incoming mail that Julie and I have received. I just know you crazy letter writing enthusiasts can’t get enough of the snail mail images, so “Again, again. More, more…”


It’s time for me to share photos of my recent outgoing letters.



Here’s a colorful envelope I sent to Marian in Tennessee. 



These pretty flowers are for Charlotte in the UK.



Lots of washi color for Lisa in France!



Dinosaur mail for Sofie in Sweden.



Sofie not only loves dinosaurs, she loves dragons too!



Here is a winged theme envelope for Rachel in Oregon.


And that’s all I have for now! But don’t you worry, I’ll be back soon with another Incoming/Outgoing post. Have a super weekend!

May SSS Reveal


The SSS reveal posts have been so much fun to do! I love showing everyone the stationery that was included in the La Papierre subscription service each month.


In May it finally started feeling like spring, so I designed this stationery with a bear, a fox, a deer, a hedgehog and some birds. I love walking in the woods, although I hope to never run into a bear…

I absolutely love vintage fashion, and many of the subscribers have been asking for more vintage themed stationery, so here’s the result.

I’ve been on a big Mexican food kick for a few months now, so it was fun to turn my newfound passion into stationery. Isn’t this corn chip fellow adorable?! Look at his mustache!

Finally, I decided to include some airmail themed paper, since it often comes up as a suggestion when new people subscribe to the SSS.

It’s currently open so you can still sign up, and as of June, you’ll be getting 6 brand new designs each month instead of 4. And the best news? You can take advantage of this for as low as $10 per month. Subscribe now!

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.
