The Humble Brag: Link Party #18

by Jocie Hagan (email Jocie) | | January 31, 2013 | 26 Comments »

Happy almost Friday! It’s a big weekend here in Baltimore, getting ready for the Super Bowl. We’re big fans, and Ethan may cry a little if we lose. But don’t worry, we’ll still love you even if you’re a 49’s fan!

In addition to getting ready for the Super Bowl and throwing my daughter’s Bug Birthday Party, I also got to hang out with my super cool, in-real-life bloggy buddy Liz from Naptime Decorator. She hosts a monthly ladies crafting night for her friends and I am lucky enough to join in on the fun. Last night, I made a Valentine’s wreath and frame (posts coming soon), but there were several different crafts that everyone did. So be sure to hop on over  to say hi to Liz and check out all the cool Valentine’s crafts we did!

Some Bragworthy Projects

It was SUPER hard to pick my faves with all the creative Valentine’s Day crafts, food, and decor stuff that was linked up. Thank you all so much for choosing to come link up with us – you really do inspire me! But here were a few of my favorites from last week:

Jessica from Dear Emmeline created this beautiful side-kitchen space that looks so peaceful and bright. I love the white washed look with pops of aqua!


Coming right off throwing Lucy’s Bug party and in the midst of planning Izzie’s Brave party, this Construction Truck Party from VixenMade has me in absolute awe! Check out the diamond plate table back drop and the tires holding up the table! This may be the most amazing boy party I have ever seen.

I am constantly in search her healthy breakfast muffins since my girls love muffins but I like them to have more substance than just carbs. These Apple Muffins made with wheat flour, nuts, and cranberries from Winnie are totally going on my to-make list!

I love topiaries and I love fabric/felt flowers, but Kathy from Life on Lakeshore Drive threw in such a pleasant surprise – using a wiffle ball to make the topiary! What a great idea! Check out these super cute Valentine’s Day topiaries.

I have made several diaper cakes over the past few years, but the diapers have always been exposed, so to speak. When I saw this Bird’s Nest Diaper Cake from Bear Rabbit Bear, I was shocked because I didn’t even register that it was a diaper cake (in the good way). What a classy spin!

Let’s be real, Halloween is so great because of the candy corn. Did you know there are Valentine’s Day candy corn?? I had No idea! I really love these “corny” little Valentines from Keri at Shaken Together!

    Thanks for posting all the great ideas! Best of luck in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately you guys beat the Pats to get there, but it will make for a fun game of sibling rivalry.
