GIVEAWAY and The Humble Brag: Link Party #9

November 30, 2012 | by Jocie (email) |

Thanks again for coming back to The Humble Brag. Last week’s link party fell on Black Friday and thanks to everyone who took a break from the shopping to come link up.

The anticipation is killing me! I am so excited to have our biggest giveaway to date on The Better Half. Any guesses? It’s only the coolest, most desired crafter’s gadget out there. In addition to winning free ad space by linking up, you can now win a Silhouette Cameo!

Want a Free Silhouette Cameo?

Have you heard about this super cool gadget yet? Seriously, it is on the top of my Christmas list and for good reason. Here are the highlights of what you could win:

  • The silhouette cameo includes a 12 inch cutting mat, cutting blade, 50 exclusive cuttable designs and $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store
  • Includes access to thousands of downloadable designs; Includes PC and Mac compatible software
  • Cuts up to 12-inch wide and 10-feet long; cuts a variety of materials from vinyl to fabric
  • Great for Scrapbook layouts, cards,custom apparel, vinyl decor, etched glass, sketch designs, and paper crafts
  • Intricate cuts, precision duplication, and smooth edges make the Silhouette the perfect tool for paper crafting projects

How to Enter

There are several ways to enter, and if you do them all you’ll get multiple entries in the giveaway.

Once you do any or all of those things, log into Rafflecopter and check the appropriate boxes to officially enter. When a winner is chosen we will double-check to make sure your entries are authentic, so please play nice.
**This giveaway has ended**

The giveaway will run along side the next two link parties, including today and you can get more entries for linking up each week. So we hope you’ll keep coming back. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 17th by Facebook and/or email (depending on how you logged into Rafflecopter). The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.

Want Free Advertising?

For a limited time, we are offering FREE advertising for one lucky blogger per week who links up at the party. I will RANDOMLY select one link. We will advertise your blog in our sidebar, and trust me, that’s pretty cool since our main OPC site gets thousands of hits per day and The Better Half gets thousands per month! So tell your blogger friends and come link up. (Don’t forget, you have to link back or grab a button to win)

Some Brag-worthy Projects

To start us off, we at the Humble Brag like to encourage brand new link party goers, but this one is extra special because he is a HE! Yes, that’s right, our first male party goer! Welcome, Icarus from Mysteries of Life– thanks for making us your first link party. Icarus actually linked up a post describing our Reader Rewards Program and how to get the most free stuff!

Shelley from Sow and Dipity shares beautiful and creative ways to use mesh in your holiday decor, and even has a video tutorial to go with it!

I know I share a lot from Karin at Art Is Beauty, but seriously, I love that girl. She really does amazing stuff with wood and furniture!

Danni from Silo Hill Farm shares at Inspiration Cafe a simple and rustic holiday star decor idea.

I love me some cranberries! Stephanie from Sweet Boutique shares her recipe for Tart Cranberry Cheesecake with Macadamia Nut Crust. YUMMM!

Dawn at Inspired Living shares her bedroom redesign. I love those pillows!

Finally, another amazing design element from Anne at White Lace Cottage – a Christmas tree in a trunk. Those skates are a super cute touch, too.

Our #1 Brag!

This week, our ad winner was chosen at random using Out of 35 entries, number 7 was chosen – Jutta from Organized Living Solutions! Jutta shares how to make healthy, homemade deodorant. This may have to be on my to-do list – I never realized it was so easy!

    Interesting…I’ve never thought about making deodorant before. Although to be honest I’m so used to anti-perspirant that whenever I don’t have a deodorant that has it I can’t stand it.

  19. paintergal says:

    I totally want to make the felt advent calendar. So cute.

  20. frazzled5 says:
