The Humble Brag: Link Party #13

December 28, 2012 | by Jocie (email) |

Merry Christmas! Hope you had a wonderful holiday full of rest and family. We had a wonderful time and continue to celebrate with family from out of town and will have another big Christmas celebration tomorrow with my extended family.

I know Christmas is over but I am still having a blast listening to Christmas music and am refusing to take down my Christmas decorations until at LEAST after New Years! haha

Supporting Sandy Hook

Last week, we teamed up with several other blogs including Happy Hour Projects and The Grant Life to support Sandy Hook area. For each project or recipe linked up, $1 was donated to Western Connecticut United Way. In total, there were 830 links – making that $830 donated! YAY! OPC and The Better Half donated $250 of that.

Some Brag-worthy Projects

Our features were from the special Sandy Hook link party and all of our linked up projects were brag-worthy, for sure, but here are a few that spoke to me!

Angie from Little Inspiration shares her Peppermint Cake Pops! Oh man, do these look amazing!

Brittney from Smart Girl Style shares her tutorial for a Ombre Rushed Duvet Cover. My nieces would love this but I’m not sure my sewing skills are there yet. So for now, it goes on my list.

Everybody loves a Pottery Barn knock-off, right? Check out this Faux Mercury Glass Ornament by Jill from Create. Craft. Love. I sooo love this!

Lish from Imprintalish shares her super cute framed ornaments. I don’t know where I would put this, but I totally want to make one for next year! Plus, its such a simple and easy idea.

As you may have heard, I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and love how Danielle from Two Little Superheroes used hers to make Star Wars Snowflakes! How cool!

Vixen Made shares her precious DIY ruffle shirt that my girls would just go crazy for! Plus, it is more on my sewing level. 🙂 I love the touch of lace, especially.

You may have seen that I shared this on FB a few weeks ago when Keri from Shaken Together originally posted it, but these Hot Chocolate Floats look so delicious, I had to share it again!

Last but not least, Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mama shares her unique and yummy take on Holiday bark. It not the traditional chocolate and peppermint but it is healthier and so pretty!

Our #1 Brag!

Every week, we choose one link at random to receive free ad space for one week! This week, our ad winner was chosen at random using Out of 830 entries, number 312 was chosen – Creat E Witty and her crochet doily! Thanks so much for linking up and supporting a good cause.

Bragging Rules

The Humble Brag is all about encouraging one another in our pursuits (and sometimes even fails). We’re excited to see what you have been up to in your crafting/DIY world. We also welcome recipes and other projects. I will be visiting each and every link over the coming day or two, so bring it on!

We ask that you:

  • Please grab a button or link back to this post
  • Link directly to your article
  • Don’t link to a shop, store or giveaway

Make sure to check back next week to see if your project has been featured and thanks for sharing.

I am in the process of planning a holiday party for bloggers in the Baltimore area and would love to check out your favorite party foods and signature drinks. So this week there will be two sections to link up – Party Food & Drinks and Anything Goes…meaning, any other projects or recipes you would like to share!

Grab a Button

Remember, please post a button or text link back to our party somewhere in your original post. We hope you also take the time to click on one or two other party-goers projects and give some encouragement.
