    Currently wishing I lived in California, so I could go to the event. I’m constantly sending my friends snail mail all the time. I’ve been wanting to learn how to have different handwriting fonts. I used to be subscribed to Happy Mail from A Beautiful Mess. I loved all the different options they had for letters.

    I am obsessed with mail art! (ok, and just mail in general!) I used to be a part of Good Mail Day, but I have since managed to become way overworked and have neglected my creative side. Not good. Winning this book would be a wonderful way to let the creative juices flow again (and to reach out to friends and family in the process).
    Thanks so much for a wonderful giveaway!

    I love snail mail and have a 5 year old who also loves snail mail. But mostly, welove sending them. We send all kinds of drawings, cards, whatever to all of our friends and realtives near and far away. It’s a great way for her to express her creativity, practice writing, and keep in touch with those she loves. We would love to write and send notes to our loved ones using Happy Mail.

    Your website has inspired me and brought color to my life, something I need right now and something more girls need to see. I’ve been trying to figure out the best ways to begin to create content that inspires girls and I would love to have this be the place I start. As a girl I snail mailed every single day, even when my friends lived a block away. It made me happy and kept me sane. Today more than ever I rely on that little girl and know this would make her the happiness girl in the world. This would be my start to something new to inspire girls everywhere to dream and thrive.

    I love to send and receive mail. I started out my illustration business by making illustrated postcards and it’s been an exciting journey since then. I’m also a postcrosser, so this book will be ideal for more inspiration and ideas. I love everything that Hello Lucky! comes up with. I also participated in their #writeon challenge earlier this year. It was such great fun :)

    I had a pen pal last year and for month we have not been in touch because he works too much and care for his girls as a single dad. He’s my friend that I never saw. So I need more inspiration to lift his mood and bright his daughters day.

    I’m one of those people who still make their own cards for every occasion and loving every minute of it. I still look in the mailbox every single day to see if I got a real letter and not just bills. Every once in a while it happens and its a great feeling and surprise. I love giving others that feeling!

    Even though our world is filled with emails, texts, Instagrams….I still love the “old fashion” way of sending well wishes, hellos, birthday greetings ect….through good old snail mail!
    Hand written notes are the best! In my opinion.

    I LOVE Hello Lucky!! Their cards are the very best. This book looks amazing! I want one because I miss the good ole days of writing notes and letters. I remember using my gel pens and stickers and magazine clippings to write my friend the BEST letters and notes. We would spend so much time the night before and trade them at school. Then when she moved to Switzerland later we were pen pals and wrote and made the most amazing letters and kept in touch for years this way. I love the internet but I do miss getting more letters and notes instead of emails. I made a vow with my friend that we would start writing to each other again just for fun. So this will give me all the inspiration 😉

    Who doesn’t love getting mail? I love sending happy mail to friends and family. I think there’s a need for more of it in this age of texting and DM’ing! It’s a totally different experience getting to hold a message with your own hands! Especially when it’s super cute mail like in the Happy Mail! book.

    What a great idea! I love playing with paper and pens, and am working hard to instill in my kiddos the beauty and importance of handwritten notes, whatever the style. Although for me the more ornate and decorated the better! This book looks full of fun projects for us to try together.
