It Comes with Love from Me to You

10 Sep

It was exactly two years ago that I put up my first blog post here on Sincerely Kate. PHEW! I would have thought my interest in this would have fizzled out some time ago, but I’m still here and already have a bunch of ideas as we enter into my 3rd year of blogging. For now though, let’s talk about my ideas for celebrating today!

Idea #1: A Giveaway!

I seem to have wound up with two copies of the book Flat Stanley and am willing to give one to one of my faithful bleaders, likely with some other flat things enclosed. How can you sign up? Simply leave a comment on this blog entry telling me about your favorite post here over the past two years. It doesn’t matter where you live or if you only found this blog recently. If you’d like my second copy of Flat Stanley, I’d like to help make that happen! You have until Sunday (the 14th) to enter, and on Monday morning I will announce the winner of this little raffle. Note: If you’d just like to comment but aren’t interested in receiving the book, please mention that while you’re typing your little love note, please!

Idea #2: Flat Kate!

You know that Stanley kid from above? He was a normal little boy until a huge bulletin board landed on him in bed resulting in him being so flat he could be mailed. I have no intention of becoming flatter than a pancake, but I still wanted to make a version of myself I could send to six of my pen pals. Why six? Because that’s how many of the things I could get onto two pieces of paper. Why were there two sheets? Because it’s my 2nd blogiversary and I am a dork. I didn’t color Flat Kate (any of them) because I thought my pen pals would enjoy doing that… and that I’d enjoy seeing how they made me over.

Othella received her Flat Kate in person– The 31st and 1st on the calendar were very significant for Othella and the not-so-flat Kate 🙂


Two others were also sent to their new homes as even my flat self tries to make letters worth their postage 😉 Jody’s Flat Kate is modeling next to one of the letters I have written her.



These three will be on their way to their owners today. I hope they have as much fun with her as I have coming up with this little idea!



You better believe I’m hoping that more of my mini alter-ego(s) will have adventures to share here during our third year! Even if (*knock on wood*) she doesn’t, I think this upcoming year of blog posts is going to be such a fun one. If there are pen pal-friendly posts you’d like to see here I’d like to hear your suggestions. Thanks to all of the bleaders who have made the past two years such a rewarding experience for me!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

The Diary of a Worm

15 Aug

For reasons I have no intention of sharing on Sincerely Kate, at least for now, I am in a very blah mood. So much so I don’t feel like writing much of a blog post today. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. For the record, I’m still looking forward to getting the mail and responding to someone should I hear from them.

The pictures you are about to see are of the books I recently found when organizing all of the books on Logan’s bookshelf, courtesy of some family members of mine.

I may not have been in the mood to write much of anything on here this time around, but regardless it sure does seem like that hobby was meant to be in my DNA, and maybe Logan will grow to love it, too.

More on Flat Stanley at a later date, but for now I shall leave you with this tidbit: my brother Doug has called me “Worm” since I was a teenager. Well, not so much since I had Logan, though it wouldn’t surprise me to hear I’m still programmed under that name in his phone. My apologies to him and my mother if they came to this post expecting to see something entirely different.

I’ll be much chattier next time, I promise!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
