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!

Eventful time for the boys!

So it's been an eventful cope of weeks for the boys,

First Ollie decided to fall off our bed and fracture his elbow so is in a full cast for 3 weeks (don't feel sorry for him! this is why parents tell their kids not to jump on the bed as it will end in tears!!!)

Secondly Will started School! Doesn't he look smart! He loves it went off no problems. Just wants to know when he can go all day (5th Oct) He's so excited

Altered Canvas

Made my first "mixed media" canvas. I was inspired by a canvas that Rhonda over at CD and OLW made.
The quote reads: Remembering you is easy, we do it everyday. Missing you is a heartache that never goes away.

LSNED 09 1st to 5th

Decided to give Learn Something New Everyday again this year. I signed up 2 years ago and never actually done it yet!! So far I am having fun

Good Grief

Fay pointed me in the direction of a New Challenge blog, with a difference, this one is all about grief, scrapping and healing.

The 2nd challenge was to just scrap what you feel. I have done a LO and also a art journal page.
The hidden journalling reads:
I feel like if I let go of how I am feeling I won't be able to reign to all back in. I feel it all sat, hanging over me, bubblking away, but I can't bring myself to give into it, to let it out for fear of what might happen. I don't think I can handle the pain.

Long Time no post!

Wow! What a busy summer! I have been crafting a bit and here are the LO's.
Firstly a couple of LO's using my SL kit and CD kits
I went to a fab all day crop with Sue where the Amazing Tracie Hudson was teaching us 4 LO's, 2 Prima and 2 Sassfrass, Here are mine.
This weekend I went to Fun crops 1st BD crop with Kay, Sal, Shirley and Sarah and lots of other lovely ladies. We had a kit to make a mini book and LO from, My mini book was voted the winner!!
