Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

For all you pink girls

Found this fab pink feather fibre optic tree in WHS - I love it!


Went Bowling for Dylan's 3rd birthday and Will loved it! I actually quite like this picture of me!

6th - 8th Dec pages

6th Dec - Tale of 2 Christmas'. I haven't really got a bad christmas memory so went more for good highlights and some bad ones! Dec 7th - To Do List:Dec 8th - Seasonal Sights. Normally my dec's go up as close to Dec 1st as I can, but due to the conservatory building works going on so far there are none. So I have shown where the tree will be!

4th and 5th Dec

So far so good! Keeping on top of the prompts!

4Th December - What is your prefect/ideal Christmas. Obviously for me for Mum to be here. The journalling behind the photo just talks about my feelings (thnkas to Tracie Hudson for the inspiration for this page)
5th December - Countdown to Christmas, what advent calender do you have? How do you count down?

I have recreated my Snowman countdown thingy for page one,
and then using the same papers made a little advent calender with the pictures of each of our advent calenders behind them - how did WIll end up with 2?!

Journalling Christmas 2007

SO I have joined in with Shimelle Laine's Journalling Christmas Class - it runs from 1st Dec to 12th Night, with a daily prompt. I have decided to do a 10x10 album and then have different sized pages throughout.
I love Christmas and so did Mum so this year will be hard - so I am hoping that this journal will help with this year - and hopefully help me hang onto all that is magical and exciting about Christmas. So here are my efforts so far!
1st Dec - Manifesto2nd Dec - Weather3rd Dec - Christmas Cards
