Denise’s Top 10 Quirks


I have a special guest on my blog today: it’s my girlfriend/assistant/favorite cook, Denise!


Hello Penpal Friends, I’m very excited to join Julie here at Penpal of the Week. Life at the PPOTW headquarters is really great. Our home is filled with stationery, envelopes, washi tape, pens, stamps, and letters. It’s almost too good to be true. It’s great, but it can sometimes be difficult to focus on work tasks because all these lovely items make me want to stop and write letters to my penpals all day long.


I’ve put together my Top 10 Quirks list just for you, hope you like them. If you’ve got a hookup for parasailing or hot air ballooning then please let me know!

Also, tell us how often you write letters on the Facebook page!


Have a wonderful weekend…

I asked Denise to make a list of her quirks too, so stay tuned…


In the meantime, why don’t you send me yours along with a penpal ad? I’m always interested in hearing about other people’s quirks.

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.
