Top 10 Quirks 3.0


Do you ever feel like you’ve changed so much in such a short period of time that you must be a completely new person now, and you look back on events from your past with a mix of shame and disbelief?


Like that time when my parents embarrassed me in front of my best friend by telling her that I had a crush on Donnie from New Kids on the Block… Thanks mom. That was the year before! (Now I dare you not to waste the next 30 minutes looking at old NKOTB photos on Google.)


That’s kind of how I feel about my old Top 10 Quirks (and my old old Top 10 Quirks). Time for a new and improved list!

Now it’s your turn! Either send in a quirky penpal ad, or comment with something from your past that is slightly embarrassing! Or just tell me who your favorite New Kid on the Block was. (I swear I only wasted less than 10 minutes Googling them.)

Sharon in Alabama


It’s a beautiful, sunny day in Vermont and I’ve got the windows open while I put envelopesĀ of stationery together to get mailed out to our SSS customers! It’s so fun to see the new matching envelopes in the packs!


I’ve got a new Quirky Penpal Ad for you. Maybe you would make a great connection with Sharon!
















Don’t forget we have a few hours left in the 48 hour flash sale… the theme is Snail Mail Stationery!


I hope you’re having a beautiful sunny day too… yay spring!



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.
