Jayna in the USA


The quirky penpal ads are back! It was great to do all these giveaways in September, but I’ve missed featuring you awesome people.


Today’s ad comes from a girl in Texas who has a pretty name and takes gorgeous photos.

I did some snooping around and found Jayna’s photography page on Facebook. Look!


Denise and I will need to start searching for a photographer just in case we decide to get married later this month (TRUE STORY!), so it’s too bad that you live so far away, Jayna…


If you’re reading this and you’re thinking that it would be cool to have your own quirky penpal ad published on Penpal of the Week, well good news: we need more! So please send us one. Thank you!

My name is Julie and I'm 34.
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 girlfriend,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after amongst
piles of cats and stationery.

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

She's 38 years old,
from the United States,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
