Brag About It Mondays!

From California To Kansas

It's time for the first ever Brag About It Link Up!

I'll start and then you link you your #bragaboutit post, mkay?
It's going to be so much fun!

My brag today is that this year I've plan lots of handmade gifts for my friends and family.
I've only been crafting for 2 years. It was never something I did before and I am in love with everything crafty.
I love making cards and cutting felt for flowers is seriously therapeutic for me.
One thing I can always count on is that when I make something, it's always received with a little bit more enthusiasm. I think people really respond well to and feel good about a gift that is thoughtfully made just for them!
The really great thing about handmade cards is that I always have something on hand if I need a last minute birthday card or if something unexpected happens and you don't know what else to do but send a little encouragement via snail mail.

I wish I could tell you BEFORE hand what I have planned for Christmas gifts, but I think I may have a couple family members who read this and who don't want any spoilers (hi Grandma Terry and Caitlin :)


I know deep down you can think of something that makes you walk with a tad bit more confidence.

What's that one thought that makes your chin tilt up a little higher?

What physical trait  makes you linger in the mirror a little longer?

Don't be afraid. You should be proud.

The brag about it post turned into a hashtag on twitter a few weeks ago with my girls Jess and Mallory and we had a thought.

Sometimes a girl just needs to brag.

There's no need to feel shy.

You're breastfeeding like a champ? #bragaboutit

You finished an important project at work with gusto? #bragaboutit

You reached a new follower milestone on your blog? #bragaboutit

You finished off a big bottle of Barefoot Mascato all by yourself? oh, wait that was just me. #bragaboutit

You didn't kill your husband for watching too much tv while you were hit the face with a plate of spaghettios? #bragaboutit

Confidence is the new panty hose, girls.
