Write A Letter Day - win Staedtler rainbow ballpoint pens! *Now closed & the winner announced in the comments*

So today's the day, it is the last day of National Stationery Week 2016.  That's it for another year now and I kind of feel a little sad, but it isn't over just yet because today is Write A Letter Day and I want you to pick up a pen and get writing!  Who haven't you spoken to in a while?  Who would love to receive a note from you in the mail?  Go and find your best paper and pens and make someone's day!  

My letter is on it's way

One of the main aims of National Stationery Week is to get people to enjoy writing again.  They have shared lots of posts over the week about why writing is important and why people feel passionately about it, you can read my thoughts on this here if you missed it on Wednesday.  

Ok, so on to my last giveaway of the week.... Olivia from Staedtler gave me this pack of rainbow ball pens to give to one of you today, aren't they colourful?
