The Humble Brag: Link Party #20

February 14, 2013 | by Jocie (email) |

Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope that today (and always) you feel loved and appreciated.

It was funny, last week, after few incidents, I felt anything but loved. But then I wrote a letter to you all. My intention was only to encourage our readers and other bloggers who don’t see their value. To my honest shock and amazement, I received tons of comments, emails, and FB notes encouraging me! THANK YOU! You humble me with your kindness and wish I could express just how much it meant to me.

Some Bragworthy Projects

WOW some awesome projects this week. I looked at each one and am still in the process of commenting (since we were traveling and throwing Izzie’s birthday party this week). So sorry, and I promise to do better next time! Here were a few of my favorites from last week:

As I said, we threw Izzie a birthday party and it was Brave themed! I wish I had time to make these for the party – what awesome quiver and arrow centerpieces from Marigold Mom!


Winnie’s Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Mouse looks like a Valentine’s masterpiece – ALMOST too pretty to eat … almost!

I love “healthy” Valentines! These are my kinda veggie valentines from Shaken Together.

we go together like peas & carrots ~ Skittles Valentine from shaken together

Amanda from Dixie Delights is always coming up with amazing room redesigns. I should probably stalk her house in case she ever decides to sell. haha What do you think of her Master Bedroom Before and After?

Laura Beth from A Step in the Journey is a new bloggy friend and I am totally inspired by her book page and lace bunting!

Valentine Vingette

This Pallet and Yarn Art from Lucy Inspired is going on my do-list, and it may even need to get bumped up to the top. So amazing!

I know you are gonna hate me for this one. I hate myself a little. These chocolate cherry marshmallow crunch bars from Mom on Timeout look deadly! That Trish is really trying to ruin my waistline!

Our #1 Brag!

Every week we pick a random link-up to be featured as the Weekly Brag, and we put their button in our sidebar. The last link party had a total of 81 participants, and, using to select a winner, number 17 was chosen – Phaedra from Phaedra’s Adventures. She linked up a few things including her Valentine Specimen Art, which I LOVE. Thanks so much Phaedra! 🙂
