Weekly Recap


I’m sitting here having some popcorn and a Pepsi Max while Julie is relaxing in a hot bath. I’ve got my Julie mix playing in the background and I’m feeling good about this evening.


Today we went to the apple orchard and I experienced picking an apple for the first time. We ate crepes and their apple juice was out of this world. Our week also involved sushi, Dexter watching, stationery design and grilling beef on a panini press.






On the blog:


On Monday we introduced you to Christine, she is our Penpal of the Week. She’s been penpalling since she was 11 and got to meet a penpal in person while she was on her honeymoon in Hawaii. Read Christine’s interview here!


We posted EB’s quirky penpal ad on Tuesday. EB has an interesting top 10 quirks list, maybe you’d be a great penpal for her?


I love the color orange and I put together some orange favorites for Wednesday’s post. As Frank Sinatra says, “Orange is the happiest color.”


Thursday’s SOTW was very exciting because we brought back these adorable owls!! We have sold a lot, but we still have a few left.


And that’s our week on the blog. Would you like to be featured here? You can participate by sending in a quirky penpal ad or you could be featured as Penpal of the Week. We have a page where you can read about how to participate with us.

SOTW #16 is back!


On August 7, the Stationery of the Week was so popular that it sold out in a few hours! Many people missed out, so I decided to bring these cute owls back this week. I have a limited number of notepads, but hopefully they’ll last for more than a day or two.




So how does this work?

- Each notepad includes 24 sheets of paper.

- Each sheet measures 5″x8″ (≈A5 size) and you can write on both sides of the paper.

- The paper is fountain pen friendly and printed professionally here in Canada.

- You have until Wednesday, October 22 to purchase this stationery (or until it sells out).

- You should receive it between October 30 and November 6.

- The cost includes shipping!

- The stationery will be mailed to your PayPal address.

- If you want it shipped elsewhere, please include a note with your payment.

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.
