About MisterPenQuin

Who is MisterPenQuin?

Once upon a time, my husband was a Naval weapons officer on a guided missile cruiser off the coast of Japan, while I was a new wife getting used to life on the West coast after growing up in the Midwest. Miles of ocean separated us during a time before e-mail or text messages existed. What kept our relationship strong was paying attention to the details while we expressed our love for each other. Over the months of separation we exchanged a steady steam of handwritten letters, threaded with feelings, stories and humorous anecdotes. My husband's letters were always signed with a doodle of a penguin wearing a top hat. His name? You guessed it: Mister PenQuin.

When I decided to open a shop for handmade books and journals, it was inevitable that Mister PenQuin's name was chosen. The story behind his name represents the same kind of attention to detail and caring that goes into my handmade items. Often my handmade books and journals are wrapped in a package of romance, nostalgia, whimsy or humor--the same feelings I hope my handmade books, journals and other paper goods evoke as you browse through my shop.
