Happy Thursday!



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
where this hop starts and work your way through.

You should have arrived here from Doreen


I am offering a prize for anyone (international girls are welcome to join in!) that leaves me a comment about your LEAST FAVE CHORE and is a follower of my blog! I am giving away my Beatrice Collection!  I will start it off, my LEAST FAVE CHORE is laundry! I really hate doing the laundry! All the folding and hanging, ugh! Just annoys me! :)  They need to have disposable clothes for people like me! lol! :)


And here is some inspiration from two of our fans that used "Beatrice" on their projects! Love these! :)

First we have a layout from Cherie Nymeyer! :)

least favorite chore of all time is cleaning the toilet and bathtub. Give me a dozen loads of laundry instead!

StacyC said...

By far, cleaning the bathroom - any part of it!!! I'm with Serena, I'd do tons of laundry before the bathroom. I LOVE to vacuum :)

mish said...

My least favorite is putting the laundry away! I don't mind doing it, it's when I have to organize the drawers just to put a hard-full of clothes away!!!!!GRRR!

mish said...

Groovy Deborah said...

Seriously Nikki! Laundry seems to run out of me ears even though I wash every day! Teens and young kids both can make a momy work too hard! Glad to be taking off today and looking around. Your fans did amazing projects but it is so hard to not create something beautiful with your lines!

Ok my least fave thing to do is cleaning toilets...I can think of so many other things to do with my time like scrapbooking right?!?!

Thanks for playing with us!

Oh my...least favorite chore has got to be the dishes. YUCK! They never end, and add baby bottles on top of the fun! When I don't have to do chores it's nice to catch up with my scrap supplies!

Jodi said...

I looove Beatrice!!! Fun giveaway!!

I don't mind the bathroom because it only takes a few minutes, and I actually like laundry! But I really don't have patience for grocery shopping!!! I'm not sure what's worse...doing a big trip and only going every couple weeks, or making it short and less painful but going more frequently... I'll come do your laundry if you take my grocery list!! :)

Jocelyn said...

Oh I just detest cleaning the bathroom!!! I just hate it!!!! But I am stuck with it!!!!I too would do a ton of laundry and be very happy rather than clean a bathroom!!! I love to vacuum!!!

Emily said...

My least favorite thing is folding and putting away the laundry - I will gladly wash it, I just don't want to FOLD IT !!

Ashly said...

I really hate matching the socks . . . dont know why but I HATE it. I would get so pissy doing it that my dear hubby decided to take it over :) Im spoiled I know.

Lindy said...

I'm with Serena and StacyC!!! Give me TONS of laundry anyday over cleaning the bathroom!!!

Penny Peck said...

My least favorite chore is doing dishes - I love to eat a home-cooked meal but I'd rather be making cards than cleaning up!

Jenneke said...

By far, my least favorite chore of all is cleaning the bathroom!!
And I see I'm not the only one, lol!

LOVE your give-away!

XXXJenneke

Debbie said...

It looks like cleaning the bathroom is quite popular! I have to agree on this one, especially my son's bathroom! Why can't men be neater?

Peachy Laura said...

Niki,
I have been a follower for awhile now, so glad you joined us with IIG & Friends on the hop! I love all your collections, so pretty!

I like you get tired of the laundry and am always telling my hubby that they need to make disposable clothes so I had to LOL at your comment about that!
Happy Hopping!
Laura

Donna said...

I guess my least favorite chore is dusting. (It makes me sneeze.) It just seems so boaring, dusting the same stuff week after week.

Marcia Sc said...

dusting is the worst - too many things to move. Bring on laundry any day!

Scrapenabler said...

Marci said...

I'm following!

And I think my least favorite chore is showers/tubs. They seem to get dirtier the more I look at them, even while cleaning!

Lillian Child said...

My least favorite chore is definitely cleaning the blinds. I must admit that once I cheated and just bought new ones because the chore was just too daunting of a task. I am already a follower of your delightful blog.

Donna said...

I detest cleaning the bathroom....hate it. Love to iron though...go figure :)

DebC said...

I hate all housework but my least favorite is cleaning the toilet!! If you have a man in the house this chore can be even more of a "worst chore" ever!!! What is so hard about hitting a LARGE circle full of water? Really I think they all should be trained to sit down when they are babies! That would have solved alot of this problem!

Thanks for the chance to win!!

Cindy deRosier said...

I'd gladly trade laundry duty for just about anything! It doesn't bother me a bit. My absolute least favorite chore is cleaning grout. If I ever buy a new house or redo my kitchen/baths, I will NEVER put grout anywhere.

Tracey said...

I like a No Housework Day!! Although I cannot complain because I have an awesome hubby who does a lot of the cleaning!! I'm a big fan of Cherie's work and it is great to see it here!!

Karen L said...

Awesome name for the Hop! Not a fan of housework AT ALL! That said though, my favorite chore is actually your least favorite..laundry! I like that it feels like I actually got something done. My least favorite chores are things like dusting and vacuuming because it never seems to make much of a difference. I turn around and it's dirty again!

EverydayMe said...

picking up my husband coffee cups and ice cream bowls... I'd rather make beds.... I'm a follower... have a super-fantastic-wonderful no housework day!!!

The floors. 'cuz to clean them you first have to pick everything up.

Monique Ouellette, Alberta Canada said...

I REALLY hate cleaning the toilet. It makes me gag everytime!

I hate to mop. Right after the floor dries(if I'm lucky) someone comes in with muddy feet, or spills Koolaid ect.

Uhh! My least favorite is the bathroom. So many germs! I love in the spring, summer, and fall to hang my clothes on the clothesline. Love the smell!

I hate to sweep!

polkacabana said...

New follower, I do not think I can choose ONE chore! I hate them all :( When you have 7 kids...chores are never ending! You clean the bathroom, make it shine, 10 min later it looks like the 6yo just emptied all the BRAND NEW toothpaste and Shampoo, conditioner and handsoap down the drain, with his 4 yo sister guilty by association...and it looks like that, because THEY DID JUST REALLY DO THAT!!
There you have it, a peek into why I loathe house cleaning!

KarenB said...

I'm already a follower Nikki, and I love would love that collection, so fingers crossed xx
My least favourite chore is ironing - yuk. I avoid it and have gradually whittled away at our wardrobe itmes to ensure there's as little as possible that needs ironing ;)

Doreen Vasquez said...

I am already a follower!!! I hate laundry too...but just putting it away. I don't mind washing or folding! Sometimes my clean folded laundry will stay on my dresser for weeks at a time!!!!

Heather said...

I was already a follower of your blog!!! Love the Beatrice Collection!

I must admit that I like to do laundry! But before you say "You WHAT?", let me explain! My scrap room doubles as my laundry room! Therefore, if I am doing laundry, good chance I am scrapping!!!

Least fave chore . . . cleaning the bathtubs and showers! No, no, no, no, no, do NOT like it!

mommyof5kidz said...

Laundry. Definitely Laundry. Especaially since my 14 year old son put it into perspective for me...
He says...
"Mom. do you realize that with our family, you wash 49 pairs of jeans, 49 shirts and 49 pairs of underwear a week, 98 socks...and who knows HOW many towels...EVERY WEEK???"

HOLY COW. Talk about a wake up call!!! NO WONDER IT PILES UP ON ME ALL THE TIME! LOL
HATE IT.

My least favorite chore is thinking of something to have for dinner. I don't mind cooking , just hate to think of something to make. Always ask my hubby what he is hungry for and then I can cook it.

Love your blog.. I am a new follower from the hop. I don't like to fold and put away the laundry.. I let it pile up in my room instead.. lol

Darlene S. said...

I soooooo hate taking the trash out. It fills up in a day, and there are only 3 people in my household! LOL. It's very annoying.. so I just wait patiently until the dear husband takes it out. Then I throw in casually, "Oh, honey, don't forget to take out the cat litter while your running out the trash too." LOL!!!

Darlene S. said...
