1/14 - Xl Feature Spot! | 14 Birthday Giveaways - Take 2:)

Happy new week you guys:) As most of you know my birthday was last week, and as a big bang treat for my birthday (and since I'd missed a lot of opportunities during the holidays) I decided to have 14 days of big giveaway's in celebration and appreciating of everything you guys have helped me build this blog into! Sounds great, expect for the part where Rafflecopter was down for the week and none my the giveaway widgets I put together would load.haha
So! Today I'm starting off with my giveaway that was supposed to be #1 on the list last week, and later on today I'll post giveaway #2! I figure there's no way I'm not doing my 14 giveaways like I promised, but maybe I could keep my blog on schedule by sharing two giveaways each day for the
next week? How does that sound?! K lets kick it off... again.haha
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Like I said in the first/last post, I chose to give away one month of the biggest and best ad on my site in thinking that would be a really exciting and fun way to give back to one of my loyal followers and suupporters! With it comes a month of dominating the top of my right sidebar and sharing in my traffic (which has reached over 1 million page-views monthly!), as well as lots of social media love and a solo blog or shop/business feature, plus a giveaway! 

Also, since I realize a large portion of you may not have a blog or shop, etc, it's totally transferable if you have a friend or someone you'd like to gift it to so don't let that stop you from entering:)

And that's it for now, but not for today! Again, I'll be back here later today to add another giveaway before the night is through, and in the meantime I hope you have a fantastic start to your week! The giveaway will end a week from today (each of the giveaways will last for one week), and within the next couple of days the winner will be chosen and verified, and announced! Best of luck to you all you sweet people, and thank you again so so much for being so good to me!

  37. Omg, Emily, I still remember the very first time you commented on my blog (which was still called "Walk in your own Shoes" back then) and we had both been blogging for only a couple of months or so. I remember visiting your blog and completely becoming addicted right away and amazed at all your talents (I still remember your original blog name and the original header with the blue-ish background...it was so pretty!). It's been so fun getting to see your blog grow, you've been so inspiring! Here's to many, many more years of blogging! I can't wait to see where it takes you. :)
