You're Gonna Love It Tuesday

Hello dear friends!
Here we are, just a mere two weeks away from my favorite holiday of all! 
Are YOU ready?
I am not EVEN gonna bring up how cold it's been as I am certain you are all tired of it too {wink}.

I have 98% of my shopping done and just need to get to wrapping. NOT my favorite thing to do. I can't cut a straight line for the life of me and I wind up with tape stuck everywhere!  My gifts may not be pretty but, they are filled with love!

Speaking of gift wrapping, Tammy from Taylor Made Ranch had the most views from last weeks party with her post about creative gift wrap that creates less waste.
I love her use of bandanas as gift wrap!  Thanks for sharing your genius ideas with us Tammy! Be sure to grab yourself an I've Been Featured button and display it proudly!

Now, let's get to partying!

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. And please, limit your link ups to just 2 or 3. 

I love to spotlight some of my favorites on my Facebook page and pin them to my You're Gonna Love It Tuesday board on Pinterest so,
be sure to follow me there too! 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.

You can sign up to receive my updates by email right here.

I would 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 when, 
Anything Goes!

Please remember, this is a party. So, after you link up, mingle around 
and visit some of the other party guests.

  1. Hi Kathe, thanks so much for hosting the party and I'm almost finished shopping too and time to wrap! I like to use gift bags for my wrapping to make it easier! Take care and have a good week. Julie

  2. The days are certainly moving along quickly. Christmas is so near now. I have started some things but I have a lot left to be done. I am here feeling chilly! You would laugh at what I am calling chilly over here in Jamaica!:) Thanks for hosting and have a great week Kathe.

  3. Eek!!! There's still so much to do, and I just keep having coffee with friends! Must - decorate. Must-shop. Must - cook.
    Thanks for all the good ideas to get me into high gear!

  4. My goodness you're almost done with the presents ... still quite a bit to do here ;-) Alice @ Mums Make Lists

  5. Hi Kathe,
    I am new over here. I am glad to find your party! Thanks for hosting!

  6. Kathe, thank you so much for hosting - Christmas is just getting closer everyday and I still have a little baking and my gift wrapping but, I'll get it done... Cathy

  7. Thanks for the great party, my friend :) I am mostly ready for Christmas - and I actually enjoy wrapping, not so much the shopping part LOL.

  8. Haha! You don't need to cut a straight line Kathe....you just need to be able to fold a straight line....and you can do that. That's my hint for today. Your cuts can be irregular...just make sure you line up your package with the salvage edge of the paper. When you wrap your paper around the box, fold under the part that will overlap the paper. That's what counts...it gives you a nice finished look. Hope that makes sense. ;)

  9. Thank you for hosting sweet Kathe. Christmas is at our doors and I hardly have any gifts. I'm buying some more tomorrow, lol! Have a lovely advent week.

  10. I have just a few more gifts to buy - the most difficult. Thanks so much for hosting.

  11. Kathe...I hope you get your wrapping done and I thank you for hosting this party!

  12. Kathe, thanks so much for a great party. I am always excited to be here!

  13. Hi Kathe, very cold this week and my basement door was letting in that cold air around the frame so I made a door curtain to augment the cold air stopper I had been using. It worked. Thanks for hosting, love visiting and joining in.

  14. It has been crazy cold here too Kathe. We're looking forward to getting our usual rainy weather back. Thanks so much for hosting and have a great week.

  15. Always a great party and thanks for hosting!

  16. Hi Kathe,
    I'm in a mad rush too, and have barely started on my shopping let alone the wrapping. I definitely need help in wrapping skills, lol. I think it requires more patience than I'm willing to give it!
    Thanks for hosting at such a busy time of the year.

  17. Thank you so much for hosting. Hope you have a great week!

  18. OMGoodness Kathe - I'm so late to the party! How exciting that my low-waste Christmas wrap post is being featured this week. :) We're still without power (and water) due to the ice storm so Christmas preparations are getting further & further behind for us here, but we'll be on rocket fuel as soon as we can get back in action!
