Hannah in the UK


As promised, I’ve got a new Quirky Penpal Ad to share with you today. Here’s Hannah and her cute stationery!








If you’re interested in corresponding with Hannah, you can send her an initial email at


My lovely wife added 4 new stationery designs to our Etsy shop while I watched my football team crumble in the 2nd half of the Super Bowl last night. Jazz Bar, Table Talk, Bloom, and Matryoshka are available in 12, 24 and 48 sheets!


Before I close, I want to let you know that I’d love to post your penpal ad here on the blog. Here’s how you can find out more information on how to participate.


Have a beautiful day!

Three months later…


Remember us? We haven’t made a post since October 29, but we’re still here… selling stationery and running a penpal community! We’re also really good at making time for ourselves…. writing letters, reading, watching One Mississippi, and eating community dinners.


In November, we made an epic road trip to Georgia so that I could officiate at a wedding, and we celebrated the Christmas and New Year holidays with our sons.



Beautiful wedding scene… beautiful wife! Didn’t we look great?!



Robbie will be 17 in a couple of weeks and Louis-Justin will be 13 in August!


Other random updates


We’ve added new sections to our Etsy shop:

Clearance sale/50 % off
Get it before it’s gone!


We have a stationery special that is perfect for Valentine’s Day! Send love to your penpals on this Sweet Hearts design!


Our Harry Potter and Friends stationery that sold out a few months ago is now available again on a pre-order basis: get the writing sheets here and the envelopes here.


Progress is being made in our immigration journey! Our paperwork is submitted and the next step will be getting an appointment for an interview.


Now that we’re getting back into the swing of things, check back tomorrow and I’ll post a Quirky Penpal Ad! I’ve got a few that have been piling up the last few months and I want to share them with you so you can connect with new penpals.


In the meantime, I’m off to watch the Super Bowl with my beer and cheese dip. Falcons rise up!

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.
