Welcome to the National No Housework Day Online Blog hop

! If you have arrived not knowing until now about the hop, no problem…just go back to

If It’s Groovy

This is where this hop starts and work your way through.

You may find games, prizes, projects and how do-you-dos along the path 🙂

We would appreciate it if you sign up to keep in touch with us by “following” and would love your comments!

Perhaps you arrived here from:

Diana (

Great!  Hope you enjoyed that stop and the others so far!!!

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!

For todays hop, I am celebrating my never-ending unorganized, lived in, loved, falling apart, seldom tidy house!

I am not about to show you pictures, but I did make a special plaque to capture my thoughts!

If this is your first stop to my blog, you need to know:

I am crazy about Mary Engelbreit!

I am crazy about polka dots!

I am crazy about cherries!

These are all the theme of my project.

I have taken a plain frame, removed the glass………


I am not rich enough to buy shadow boxes and this has a lot of layers.

I did not buy anything brand new for this project.  I did the phrase on PSE7, used scraps of wallpaper and just looked through my stash for things to match.

This is the kind of of project that is 100% me!

I love everything about it and now I need to find a place to hang it!

Another phrase that is great for this hop:


Keeping with that theme, I have created this nice prize pack for one lucky person.

It is a card kit.  You will get enough supplies to make (6) of these cards.

Finished Card counts as 1, plus supplies for the 5 others.

If one of the spots on the mushroom look weird, it is Photoshop’d in.

It fell off, and I did not notice till I was editing the pics!  OOPS!!

Side view of this one of a kind card, designed by ME:)

Here is a peek at the supplies (most of them) for the kit.

I hope you like it.

If you LOVE IT and would like an extra chance or chances to win this kit,

I invite you to head on over for the last couple of days of

Tally Scrapper’s

Light It Up Blue” Cyber Crop

Here are the projects I have done for this crop.

If you LOVE my card kit, head on over to TALLY, have a look around, leave some love and you get a 2nd entry for the card kit.

If you make a donation to AUTISM SPEAKS, through TALLY, you will earn a 3rd entry for the card kit.

If you decide to join Tally to have the time of your life, let them know Jeannie, aka, POLKA CABANA, referred you, you will get a 4th entry.

WHEW!!  Are you still with me?

See why we are going through the 10th for this HOP??

Thanks for your visit, please head over to see Kelly at

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Without further ado…put that broom, mop, dish soap DOWN and go visit KELLY!!

If it is reported back to me that  you have been doing house cleaning or have a clean house already, you will not be eligible for my prize! (JUST KIDDING)
