You're Gonna Love It - Week 42

Good evening dear friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes.
I can honestly say it was a terrific birthday!

Mr. B is so good at spoiling me rotten that I have to be careful what I ask for because...
well he'll get it for me.
Case in point, I've have been wanting a Silhouette Cameo die cut machine FOREVER and, yes, that was all wrapped up and presented to me Friday morning.
Silhouette Cameo
I haven't had the chance to play with it much yet because my laptop was so old that we couldn't install the software.
That meant we then had to go get me a new laptop.
Which means I am know having to learn Windows 8.
Not easy for a now older lady I'm telling ya!
But, I know enough to be able to write this post with it LOL.

Even though my birthday festivities are all done for another year I'm still
in a partyin' mood so let's get this weeks party started!

The most viewed link last week came from Robin who blogs over at
Fluster Buster
Robin shared a fun list of great uses for Vicks VapoRub.
I've been using Vicks on my concrete heels for years but
I didn't know about the other ailments it could help with.
Thanks for sharing Robin!  Grad yourself an I've Been Featured button
and display it proudly!
Now for the rules:
Feel free to link up anything you have created.
Recipes, decor, crafts, written or photographed.
Anything you are so proud of
you just gotta share it with others.
I will reserve the option of deleting
any post that I do not feel fits the
theme of my blog.
Please limit your link ups to
just 2 or 3.
I also hope to get back to spotlighting
some of my favorites on my
be sure to follow me over there too!

It would be nice
if you'd check and
make sure you are not a 
no-reply commenter.
I try to respond to every email and comment 
you leave to me but, if you are a
no-reply commenter,
I can't and that makes me sad.
As always, you don't have to
be a follower
in order to link up.
 I want you to follow
Kathe With An E
because you want to.
Not because it is required.
 I would also love it if you would link back
in some way
so that others come and party with us.
Either grab the party button
or add my blog link
to your post or on your

  blog party page.
But again, it's not required. 

I ask that you please 
DO NOT link up
giveaways, Etsy shops or anything for sale.
Save those for the first Tuesday of each month
Anything Goes! 
Please remember, this is a party
so , after you link up,
mingle around 
and visit some of the other party guests.

And, stop by and visit these other great linky parties this week!

  1. What?! I'm the first one here tonight ;) Lucky you - 2 new toys! I love Windows 8 btw ... it did take some getting use to, but I think it's better! Thanks for the party, Kathe! {hugs}

  2. I love Vicks Vaporub, it reminds me of my childhood colds, lol! Thank you for the party sweet Kathe. Have a good week.

  3. Thanks so much Kathy for another great party!!!
    And lucky you - have fun with your " toys " :)

  4. Thank you for the feature Kathe. I displayed your button on my post. This week I'm linking up Uses for Witch Hazel the list is just as amazing as the Vick's VapoRub.

  5. Thanks so much for hosting Kathe! I'm so jealous of your Silhouette Cameo. Have fun playing!

  6. Happy Birthday. I would love to see a demo of the Cameo machine.Guess I could google it. Have fun with your new technology!

  7. Happy you got your Silhouette Cameo. Look forward to seeing your projects.
    I'm going to try Vick's on my heels. Is it better than Vaseline?

  8. I love your birthday gift, Kathe! Can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for hosting the party! Hope you have a wonderful week!


  9. I hope you enjoy your Cameo! I look forward to hearing how that goes. Oh and a new computer is a must to do all these new fangled things! Thanks for hosting.

  10. Thanks for hosting, Kathe! Hope you had a great birthday! Sounds like you got some nice gifts ;-) Have a great week!

  11. My goodness you are a lucky girl. You sound like me for the new technology. Not easy. I have to ask my grandchildren for help :)

  12. Those were two really big WOW birthday presents. I know you will be loving them to pieces. Thanks for hosting. Have a wonderful week.

  13. Happy Belated, kathe!!

    I am so excited abuot your cutter- my daughter got one for Christmas and loves it - can't wait till she teaches me how to use it too.

    It's good and wonderful you are spoiled.

    BTW- because of my recent surgery and 2 weeks mandatory bedrest (finally over) my hubs bought me a laptop and rigged up this killer computer holder thing for me - it was/is/has been GREAT for recovery bed rest.........but it too had Windows 8 which bleh bleh bleh I hated - so he fixed it by taking it off and installing windows 7 on it. I am a much happier bird now - I know it can be done, and telling you so you know - just did it so it is fresh on my mind.

  14. Wow, it looks like you had an awesome birthday. What a great gift!! Thank you so much for hosting. Enjoy playing with your new toy!!!

  15. Kathe, Happy belated birthday! Just linked up and wanted to stop by and say thanks for hosting! Have a great week...hugs, Penny

  16. Glad to hear you had a great birthday, Kathe and yea on the new Silhouette. I look forward to seeing what you create!
    Thanks for the party!

  17. You lucky girl! I've been wanting one of those also. I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday. Thanks so much for hosting. Hugs, Peggy

  18. Wonderful gift! Thank you for hosting. When I use your button to link back it goes to a December party. Just letting you know.

  19. Kathe, you'll love your new toy! I love my min Cricut!! If I can do it...you can do it! Concrete feet.....that is hilarious. I am using that. Acutally what I need to use is that Vics!! LOL

  20. I thought you were already crafting away with your new Cameo! But, now you have Windows 8 as well, which I believe is amazing {my brother works for Microsoft and he had it before the public, so when he mentioned that he liked it, I knew he meant "loved it"!} Enjoy both, Kathe :-) Thanks for hosting!

  21. Hello Kathe,
    Wow! Am I ever pleased that you popped over to see me. You led me back to your blog, and it's great!
    Mr B sounds like a diamond. If in another life I'm reborn as a woman I'll want to meet someone just like him.
    Have a great week!
