Stationery of the Week #26


As many of you know, I only wear skirts and dresses. If I was born about a century earlier and it was the 1890s, this is probably what I would look like! Fashion was so wonderful in the late 1800s and early 1900s…

Jason in the USA


It wasn’t long ago when we featured Jason as our Penpal of the Week. Today he is coming to us with his Quirky Penpal Ad, because he’s looking for new penpals.








If you would like to contact Jason, you can write to him using his snail mail address or you can send an email to:


Jason has typed his penpal ad. So now I want to ask you about your letter writing hobby… Do you handwrite or type your letters? Head on over to our Facebook page and answer today’s question.



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.
