The month of February is slowly but surely approaching and that means that InCoWriMo is nearly upon us! To celebrate this fact, I am doing a little letter writing starter pack giveaway for my followers here and on Instagram :)
First, what is InCoWriMo? The International Correspondence Writing Month, for short Incowrimo is a phenomenon that started in 2013 and the goal is to connect with people through, as they call it "vintage social media" - ie writing a letter, postcard, note etc the old fashioned way and mail it to that person. And the pledge is to do this for 28 days, so the whole month of February! Yep, 28 letter/mailings in 28 days! See more on how to participate on the official site. It's all about using your stationery, pens and inks more and of course connecting with people the old fashioned way!
Seeing I have waaaay too much stationery I will ever use up in my lifetime, I wanted to share some with my followers here and on IG. I have compiled, not one, but two starter packs to giveaway! That's right, two lucky people will receive a starter pack from me so you can participate along with so many others (including myself :) The starter packs contain one letter set with sheets of paper and envelopes, a vintage fountain pen (a piston filler) and 5 different ink samples.
Set one consists of midori letter set, Herma 56 piston filler vintage fountain pen and ink samples: Montegrappa bordeaux, Platinum mix leaf green, Pilot Iroshizuku Tsustuji, Pelikan Edelstein Amethyst and Montblanc Blue Hour.
Set two consists of kamio Engrish letterset, Liberty piston filler vintage fountain pen and ink samples: Pilot Iroshizuku Kiri Same, Organics Studio Join or Die, Omas Turquoise, Platinum Mix free earth brown and Diamine Grape.
What you have to do to win one of these packs:
Set one will be given away to one of my blog readers and all you have to do is comment on this post and let me know who you would write a letter to and why. That is it! Set two will be given away ion my instagram and you can also enter there (same question) if you want to try to win that set. Just look for the giveaway picture on my instagram and answer there.
RULES of the giveaway:
Open internationally, Only one entry per person per set (so once on instagram and once here) and the giveaway closes on January 24th at midnight CET, I will announce the winners (which will be chosen at random) shortly after in the following day or two so they can get the starter pack just before International Correspondence Writing Month starts.
So what are you waiting for? Leave me a comment and tell me who you'd write to :)
Also if you'd like to be on my InCoWriMo mailing list; leave your address here at my POSTABLE. (disclaimer: While I will do my best to send mail to people on my list, which is now half full, but if there is a high demand I might not be able to respond to everyone's request.)
Thanks for stopping by and looking forward to read your answers below :) Have a great day!
