Weekly Recap


Julie and I tried our best to tie up all the loose ends before we go and get married tomorrow. She suffered with stomach woes this week, so our sleep and productivity were fairly limited. We did manage to get caught up on laundry and finish season 4 of Dexter.




On the Blog:


On Monday, Julie posted an interview with Jason in Rhode Island. He is our Penpal of the Week #150! Jason has over 40 penpals, but he’s still looking for more. You can read his entire interview here.


And then on Thursday Julie revealed Stationery of the Week #24. This new stationery design is especially enticing for the bakers and letter writers with a sweet tooth. We still have some notepads left, check out this post if you’re interested.


On Friday, I introduced you to Hugo in Montréal. He’s an old fashioned guy who loves to journal. Read more about Hugo’s quirks, you just might be interested in sending him a letter!


And that’s our week, it was a quick one. Last week I promised I would share a photo of the wedding mail we’ve received.



We can’t wait to get settled into our room after the wedding and

read through all these wonderful wishes!


I’m off to burn the CD with our wedding songs and to finish up packing for the honeymoon. I hope I’ll be able to sleep tonight!

Hugo in Canada


It brings me great pleasure to be publishing my first Quirky Penpal Ad. Thank you Julie, for sharing the fun with me.


Today’s ad comes to you from a guy in Montréal, close to home.






If  you’re interested in corresponding with Hugo, you can email him here:


Hugo mentions that he always writes his letters with a fountain pen. This made me curious about what kind of pen you write your letters with. Tell us about your favorites here.



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.
