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!

SFIO - Grief

I haven't been involved in the challenges over on Scrapbooking from the inside out, but this month the emotion is Grief and I needed to do some. So using the Sept Bad Girls kits here are a few LO's

Challenge 1: LO about the stages of grief. Journalling reads:
Grief is a cycle, a neverending cycle. It's something i think I will never get over and to be honest I don't think I want to "get over" losing Mum. I need to learn to accept that it is now part of who I am

Challenge 2: Lo about tears and crying Title reads: Sometimes you need a bloody good cry.
In the corner is a small photo of wine, ice cream and chocolate and it reads " or there's .."

Challenge 4: This was a joint challenge with the Good Grief blog. Create a LO about a conversation you would have with your loved one. There really is only one thing I would say to Mum and that is "I Miss You"

Believe Banner - Bad Girls Sept

One of the projects with the Bad Girls Sept kit was an "Inspiration Banner". I chose the word Believe, and it is now hanging in my craft room (which is still blue as it was Will's room and I haven't redecorated yet!) I really enjoyed making this, lots of glitter and glimmer mist!

More Mixed Media Art

So the Sept challenge on Bad Girls is "Paint me Pretty" - basically use paint - alot. So here is my Canvas! Which is also for the latest challenge on Good Grief blog - which is to create something throught the eyes of a child.

When Mum died we told Will that she was in heaven which was up with the stars. This also made me think of a song from "Joesph"

"There's one more angel in heaven,
There's one more star in the sky,
There's one less place at our table,
There's one more tear in my eye."

And that was the inspiration for the canvas.
There's lots of paint, glimmer mist (my new fav thing!!), Ink and glitter.
