The Humble Brag: Link Party #21

February 21, 2013 | by Jocie (email) |

Welcome back to another Humble Brag! If you’re new to us, or to link parties, let me give you the skinny. A link party is a place where we highlight some really cool projects going on out there in blog-land. Also, if you are a blogger, you can add a link to a current project to show off all your hard work. Link parties are all about the love – encouraging one another and getting the word out about your awesomeness.

What’s special about The Humble Brag link party, you ask? In addition to having the coolest readers and link party goers, we also give away free ad space to one link party goer every week. I also visit every link, hope to comment on them all, and pin and/or FB share all the featured projects.

No matter who you are, we are humbled you choose to hang out with us and appreciate getting to know you, so thanks!

Some Bragworthy Projects

Seriously, there were too many awesome projects this week to feature them all, but here is a sampling!

I don’t have boys, but Danielle from 2 Little Superheroes *almost* makes me want a boy. What a creative way to display legos!

What is better than graham crackers? Well my first answer would be graham crackers with vanilla icing on them. But my second answer would be homemade graham crackers. So yummy from The First Year Blog!

Do you follow us on FB? Well, I shared this earlier this week because I was so in-love! Shannon from Sewing Barefoot and her hubs built this Pipe and Wood entertainment center. This is a much grander version of Ethan’s pipe shelf in his workshop. 🙂

As you may know, I am in the middle of a craft desk makeover and I was so inspired by this Craft Room Reveal from Melissa at The Happier Homemaker! Check out those curtains – swoon!

Office Makeover

These play donuts from Thrive 360 are totally going on my gifts ideas for little kid parties! What kid doesn’t love donuts and play food?!?

I may be a little biased since Jessica from Dear Emmeline is a fellow Baltimore Blogger, but this cross-stitch dresser is the most creative thing I have seen in a long time. LOVE. IT!

How cool is this DIY industrial lighting from Janel at NellieBellie??? This would look so cool in Ethan’s workshop!

Our #1 Brag!

If you didn’t already know, every week we feature one lucky party participant in our sidebar as the Weekly Brag. Think of it as our way of saying thanks for linking up, and we hope you come back every Friday. To play fair, we always use to select the winner, and this week it was #74 – Loretta from A Finn In The Kitchen! Loretta linked up her ah-mah-zing Avocado Egg Salad. You gotta check it out.

    Cool use for a frame! I still love Legos at the grand age of 28. But then again I never really have or plan on growing up, so I guess that makes sense. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, those homemade graham crackers look amazing. Wonder how they taste made into s’mores?
    That x-stitch dresser is so cute. I like that the design doesn’t overwhelm- but is subtle.

  26. Thanks a lot for hosting. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
