No Housework Blog Hop!!

WELCOME to the National No Housework Day Online Blog hop! We celebrate this national holiday by scrapping today and into the weekend with projects that remind us of housework or getting away from it!!! Take the day off, put up your feet and let's hop!
 
If you have arrived not knowing until now about the hop, no problem...just go to the blog If It's Groovy and start from there. If you've started at the beginning, you should be coming to my blog from Peg's Crafting Corner. When you have seen all you need to see and left a comment on my blog you will need to go next to Heather's Blog Scrapping the Guys.

Today I have for your viewing pleasure =) a card I made for the blog hop challenge over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things. The challenge is about our favorite colors. Mine is Green! I love all shades and when I was younger I wanted to paint my entire room green, my mother put her foot down on that one though. Maybe someday I'll have my green bedroom, until then I will try to work it in to my life in all possible ways! This is a simple card but it was fun to make!



This next project, I made in honor of this fun hop! I made it about my most dreaded chore ever…folding clothes! I hate it with a passion! If I could get away with it, my entire family would live out of baskets of clean but unfolded laundry! I am such a procrastinator that I will often have 3-4 baskets full to nearly toppling over of clean clothes before I can make myself fold them! I'd rather scrub toilets all day than fold laundry! =)

For this LO I used some leftover fabric and sewed it onto my page. My journaling is all along the curve of the fabric.

  7. I love green too - and your card is fab! But the layout, well that really speaks to me, LOL!! I think we can all relate to the laundry... it just never ends does it? One load done, and there's always another in its place. (Well, not today!!)
