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 , 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 Nikki Sivils; if so, 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!

So...I've been thinking about what challenge I wanted to give you all today. What I keep coming up with is that "No Housework Day" or not...some things just have to get done, right? And aren't we blessed to have people in our lives that pick up the slack for us when we need help? It may not be with housework (though it could be.) Maybe the help is at work, or with our kids, or even emotional. But these people are downright irreplaceable in our lives and we love them!

So my challenge to you is to make a thank-you card. If you send it to the person you had in mind, so much the better! Monday morning I will choose a random winner to receive a set of Zig Chalk Writer pens in lovely pastel colors!

















Thanks for your visit, and please head over to see Theresa at Scrapbookers Anonymous next. Enjoy!

For reference, in case you get lost along the way, here is the complete list of stops.

  2. Marci good point G/F!!! There is dependable people in our lives and too often they are probably not acknowledged. Sounds like a plan to spend our "time off" honoring someone with a thank you!!!

    Great prize!

    Happy Hopping this weekend!

  23. Thank you for the challenge. I have a friend who was wonderful about bringing food when both hubby and I were sick. She is always there. I don't know if it counts, but I just sent her a card for it. Also sent out one to brother and sister-in-law on Wednesday for helping me out with a couple of things lately. I try to never take these people for granted. I am sure I will think of someone else who is deserving and GROOVY who might need a card!

    Thank you for being in the hop. You can email me by clicking my name and following the link.
