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


36 project 1

36 project 2


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…

Michelle in the USA


This is a week of Michelles. On Monday, I introduced you to Michelle in South Dakota. And today it’s my privilege to introduce you to Michelle in Oregon.










Michelle mentioned that she loves stickers… what about you? Do you use stickers in your mail art? The other day I was out shopping with Julie and her mom and I bought a pack of robot/space creature stickers. I recently used them on a letter I wrote to my penpal Bonnie in Vancouver.


Your turn, head on over to our Facebook page and tell us about your favorite types of stickers.



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.
