September Sweeps

30 Sep

Sincerely Kate is more than just the name my blog, but it’s also the name of a Facebook group I created for me and my pen pals. To boost activity in the other SK I decided to have a raffle; all September long my pen pals earned entries in the drawing by participating in an assortment of games such as “Would You Rather” and for all you Whose Line is it Anyway fans, “Questions Only,” and of course by sending me letters. Well, the time for the drawing is among us!

But first, for those of you who are curious, I kept track of the entries via a color-coded calendar, and then this morning I filled out cards for each person however many times they showed up on the calendar and threw ’em into a jug.

And the name on the card I drew is…


Congratulations, Allison! You will be getting the set of gel pens (shown below) in the mail as soon as I get around to ordering it for you via The Lakeside Collection. I expect you to use ’em when you write me next, haha. I guess those 16 entries came in handy, eh?

52-Pc. Gel Pens with Case.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who entered the drawing one way or another. Who knows, maybe I’ll have another raffle in the not so distant future 🙂

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
