Announcing the Snail Mail winner


How’s your bank holiday weekend going? Very well, I hope.

So, time I announced the winner of my Snail Mail by Michelle Mackintosh giveaway. Thank you to everyone who entered, if only you could all win a book!

However, there can only be one winner. In traditional style I asked the hubbie to think of a number, he said 17, which means Bethan is the winner, congratulations!

Thanks again to everyone who entered, keep sending that happy post!

Snail Mail – a review and giveaway

Stationery lovers and letter writers, do I have a treat for you?! Absolutely I do! Let me present to you a book that focuses entirely and wholeheartedly on the happy subject of snail mail.


When the publishers asked me (by email, would have been even better if they sent me a letter) if I’d like to review a copy of Snail Mail by Michelle Mackintosh and start off the Blog Tour celebrating the publication of Snail Mail, I jumped at the chance.

It’s no secret that I think all our lives are cheered with a piece of real post, actual hand written mail, popping through the letterbox of a morning. If you would like to leave email alone on occasion, and pen a note, card or letter to someone instead, this is the book for you.


It is packed with ideas for why to write a letter, prompts for what to write, ways to embellish envelopes, projects to try, ideas for making up care packages and creating postable art, and what to do with the gorgeous post that you create and receive. I particularly like how Michelle suggests what to write in difficult letters, to give you the confidence to get in touch with a friend in need, rather than shy away from it. There are even make your own envelope templates and sheets of stickers at the back of the book.


As well as being packed with information, ideas and tips, Snail Mail is a visual feast for the eyes, as you can see by the shots I’m showing here. If a flick through the pages doesn’t make you want to raid your stationery stash I don’t know what will!


The message that comes through loud and clear to me from Michelle Mackintosh’s book, is not the importance of a pretty envelope or the length of your letter, it’s to just put pen to paper and get in touch by post. A letter written from you to another has great value and meaning to that person. It doesn’t matter how fancy your penmanship is, what matters is that you took the time to write a message on paper, address it, fix on a stamp and post it in a letterbox. The recipient of your post, whether it’s a short note on a postcard or a lengthy letter, appreciates the effort you went to, and will be thrilled to see a piece of proper snail mail among the usual bills and junk mail.


Because I know you’re going to be super keen to get your hands on Snail Mail I have one copy to give away to you! For your chance to win simply comment below telling me your favourite way to send mail – by postcard, letter paper, a greeting card – whatever you use! When my eldest brother was travelling around Australia many years ago he made postcards out of beer mats and posted them to me, I received them all!


The giveaway ends midnight GMT Friday 22 May so be sure to leave your comment before then! I’m sorry the competition is only open to UK readers.

Tomorrow the Snail Mail blog tour goes to Wild Olive

Snail Mail was sent to me by the publishers for review, and they have donated a copy for the giveaway, but all opinions are my own. All photographs featured in this post are my own.
