Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog & letting me know about this giveaway - I must remember your ideas when I do one - lol -

Don't you hate it when ...people pretend to be your friend when all they are interested in is the ideas they want to pick from you , contributing nothing of consequence in return.

hey ho !

ttfn, Pearl

Lisa said...

Hidy Ho there Esther... Great blog candy. Thanks for the fun :)

Don't you just hate it when.... your husband has the day off from work and you have to drag yourself in..

Don't you just hate it when... someone interferes with your stamping time?

Heck I could go on for hours.. I better get to my happy place.

doverdi said...

Nice blog! I also love how you used the large prima flower on your mother card. I have yet to get any of the large primas but it's definately something I plan to do in the future. Love your blog candy & the theme. I definately have to agree with the one about people pretending to be your friend just to pick your brain for ideas but not to be willing to share ideas in return. But mine would have to be:

Don't you just hate it when the cat hacks up a hairball and you step in it with your bare feet. lol It really isn't funny!

Dawn Mercedes said...

Fun game! Fun answers...

Don't you just hate it when, you finally finish folding all the clean clothes from last week and you realize that you have another load of clean clothes coming out of the dryer in 5 minutes!

The never ending laundry saga!

Allison said...

I guess I should answer the question too! Don't you just hate it when you have crafted too late, slipped into bed exhausted only to have one of your kids decide that it is time to wake up!

Leah said...

He he... fun! Don't you just hate it when you you forget to put the timer on the cookies in the oven.. then they're wrecked & you have to start over! (great for the diet though... lol!)

gremhog said...

what a cool idea..

Don't you just hate it when...you are ready to stamp the last item on a card or project and it smears from the ink that's already on your fingers?

Am I the only one with ink-meared fingers?

Bonnie said...

Don't you just hate it when...you finally have a "ME" day (house to yourself-no noise, no interruptions) and then your husband comes home early(noon)and your son has a snow-day from school. From a "ME" day to a "WE" day, in the snap of your fingers!

Megan said...

Hi Esther

Thanks for popping by my blog :-)

Don't you hate it when....you can't think of anything to end the sentence with! No, just kidding. Don't you hate it when you stick to a diet for weeks and NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!

lol...that's my life in a nutshell right now :-)

Gillian Hamilton said...

Don't you just hate it when you cook a beautiful meal, and someone shakes salt all over it, without even tasting it!! ARGH!!!

jennalee said...

Thanks so much for all the creative ideas and cards and things. I love seeing the creativeness in everyone's mind.

Don't you just hate it when you just want to make a living at being creative but your too afraid to quit your day job.

Keryn Campbell said...

thanks for visiting my blog and letting me know about the draw.

Don't you hate it when....

you lean accidently on the dishwasher buttons and rewash already clean and dry dishes.

Scrapbook WithVanilla said...

What a great idea!!

Don't you hate when... You are in your creative zone and you run out of adhesive!

Lythan said...

Don't you just hate it when you do something wrong and THEN remember that you promised yourself you wouldn't do it this way again LAST time you did it?

Chris said...

Love your blog... fab idea too...
just had to join in, lol

Don't you just hate it when...

You craft all day 'heaven' and then... have to tidy up, uurrgh!

BondGirl said...

Inspiration stikes in the middle of the night, and you trundle down in your PJ's and slippers to make your card cos you wont be able to sleep otherwise!

Jana Weaver said...

Don't you just hate it when... All you want to do is stamp and your husband asks "Do we have ANY clean laundry in this house? Or Dishes??" LOL! Unfortunately, that happens to be FAR too often.

Did you find the site you were looking for? If it was black & white, it could have been Joan's B&W card contest on her Paperlicious blog?

Good luck finding it!
-Jana

Rein said...

Don't you just hate it when....
...you are walking down the street on a beautiful spring like day and a bird comes and drops his MESS on your head??? Oh yeah, it happened to me a couple of days ago. The kids got a huge laugh about it, but it just added to my feelings about birds. I HATE BIRDS! Ewwwww.

Great blog...I'm adding you to mine as soon as I get home today.

Donna said...

Don't you just hate it when you ....can't remember whether or not you have taken your drugs for the day.

I can't remember whether or not I have had todays lot - I suspect not as I have not been very good at taking them lately.

Donna

Jane said...

Don't you just hate it when you've had all day to create something- and inspiration only strikes as you are due to pick up the kids from school ?!

thanks for the message on my blog Esther !

Kelly said...

don't you just hate it when...

you have just sold the stamp that suddenly appears in the stamping magazines with lots of samples and you need that stamp back!

Kathy said...

Don't you just hate it when....you spill a whole pot of ultra fine red glitter all over your best black trousers?

Diane said...

Great Blog, glad I found it!

Don't you just hate when don't realize you mounted a stamp upside down until you stamp on your finished card!

(I've done that twice....sometimes it's hard to see the word stamps, especially if the print is in script. I now remember to test those to be sure it is mounted correctly.)

Momabellah said...

Love this idea..lol...okay so don't you just hate it when... you just finished mopping the floor all day just to have your four year old daughter come home from school and walk all over it with her muddy boots on! ARGH!

Leni said...

FUN idea.

Flower said...

Linked on ink-stains now. Sorry for the delay.

hmmm...Don't you just hate it when you need to write something and it seems every dang pen you pick up won't write or dies after 3 letters?!

ikkinlala said...

Don't you just hate it when... you have to turn the clock forward in the spring (and get up early)?

Cher said...

chelemom said...

There is laundry to do, dishes to wash, children to feed, tables to dust, carpeting to vaccuum, dogs to feed, groceries to buy, homework to complete....Just wanna stamp!:)

Heather Leech said...

Hi Esther! Glad I found your blog (thanks Allison!!!)
Anyways, I know this won't apply to anyone else leaving a comment but...don't you hate it when you pick up the phone and your cockatoo gets jealous and starts to scream...and he only does it to you and nobody else in the house!
I have a cockatoo, Mambo, that screams every time I'm on the phone. My husband or kids can phone and not a peep...but when mom's on the phone...
Great blog!

Don't you just hate it when... You are having a great dream and the alarm goes off. You just want to go back to sleep and continue the dream so you can see how it ends.

Great blog and super idea for comments!

Jan Scholl said...

Don't you just hate it when you have two days of summery weather and you are so jumping with joy in the sun and then reality hits and its snowing and sleeting again because it is still only April?

Cindy Keery said...

Don't you just hate it when...
you drop your opened black ink pad face down onto your new light colored skirt? (yes, I've done this! lol)

I live in the arctic and we plug our cars in the keep them from freezing and we have to give them time to warm-up before we drive them. If you don't have a remote start then you have to pile on all your gear, trudge out through the freezing temps and manually start your car. It gets tiresome at times especially when it's really-really cold. So my ending would be: "Don't you just hate it when the remote start doesn't work?!"
Smiles,
