What’s In The Gunny Sack? #28 & Bloggy Birthday Party

Hey everyone…guess what??  The Gunny Sack is now 1 year old…yes it my first blogiversary!!  I want to celebrate this week with a Bloggy Birthday Party!  And what’s a party without some treats, right?  So, I have a few fun giveaways lined up but first of all I want to say:

Thanks to all of you who take the time out of your day to stop by The Gunny Sack.

Thanks to all of you who leave me sweet, supportive comments that always make me smile!

And thanks to all of you who share the things that you like here on Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, word-of-mouth or any other way!
If not for all of you, The Gunny Sack wouldn’t be a success!  I can create and post all I want but without anyone to read what I’ve posted and interact with, what would be the point?

So, today’s giveaway will be a way to share The Gunny Sack with one of you:

2 Month Advertiser’s Spot
I will place your blog button or Etsy button on my sidebar

for 60 days!

Guest Post On The Gunny Sack

An opportunity to let the spotlight shine on you!
This could be a tutorial to show off your skills or
could be a post about you and your blog!

Stuff The Gunny Sack
If the winner wants to, during the 2 months I will let them choose
their 2 favorite links from the previous week’s party and
showcase them at the next link party with
a mention of the winner and a link to their site.

Leave a comment & email address below to enter to win the giveaway!
Giveaway is open worldwide.  Winner must be a public follower of The Gunny Sack. Contest ends on Sunday, March 11th at 11:59PM CST.  Winners will be chosen via Random.org and contacted within 24 hours of the contest’s end via email.
Here’s How The Link Party Works:
{opens at 8 am}
Link up something that you created that you want to share:  DIY, sewing, crafts, tutorials, recipes, room makeovers, decorating and organizing tips. Please do NOT link up things you are selling, giveaways or your link party. Please consider placing my party button on your site and becoming a follower!
Due to stolen content, I have found it necessary to only show a snippet of my blog posts in my feed. Thank you for understanding that I want to keep the content I work hard to create on my website where it is originally published: thegunnysack.com
