Leap Day Giveaway ~ A Blog Hop

Oh Boy!!!   There is going to be another Blog Hop Party next Wednesday - Leap Day.  It was fun to be one of the participating blogs last time in a Blog Hop Party, so I thought I would like to play again.  You'll have to come back to find out what I'm giving away next Wednesday - Leap Day - February 29th.  The prize is a goodie.  I love using them and I hope you will too.  No, I'm not telling you what it is yet.

Elizabeth at Such a Sew and Sew thought this would be a fun way to celebrate her 700th blog post.   BTW congratulations Elizabeth.  And since the February 29th is a special day that comes around only once every four years, what a great idea to host a Leap Day Blog Party.

Elizabeth's Rules are

Here's how it works:
1.  Choose something to give away on Leap Day.  Keep it simple.  You can make something, give away a bit of your stash, offer a service, buy your favorite gadget to give away or offer something completely non-crafty.  Your blog, you choose.
2.  To participate in the blog hop, your giveaway must start and end on Leap Day (February 29, 2012).  You can open it at 10:00 am and close it at 10:00 pm, or go midnight to midnight, or anything in between.  Your blog, your rules.
3.  Post your giveaway and then link up at Such a Sew and Sew.  Please include the Leap Day Giveaway button (code found on the Leap Day Giveaway post) somewhere in your post.  The linky will open at noon MST on February 28th and close at 10:00 am MST on March 1st, to allow for people in different time zones to participate.
4.  If you want to include the linky on your giveaway post so that others can link up from your blog the code in available here.   If you choose to add the linky to your post, you MUST include the above rules so that it is fair play for all.

I know that Leap Day is next Wednesday, so what do you do in the meantime?  First off, decide what you're going to giveaway.  You can even write your post and schedule it to appear at 12:00 am on the 29th.  And second, please spread the word.  It will be a very lonely linky party if it is just me giving a little something away.  Post about it, add the buttons to your sidebar, mention it to everyone you know, pressure your friends into joining.  Just kidding about those last two.  Sort of.

I hope you'll join me in what I think will be a really fun day of giveaways!

Hop on over to Elizabeth's blog Such a Sew and Sew and read about her upcoming blog party hop.  Join in or just come back and play on Leap Day.

Remember to visit back on Wednesday, February 29th to win some fun prizes.
