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!

LO Tastic!!

So I really didn't scrap much last yeat and that make sme quite sad, I don't really know why I didn't but I don't want the same to happen this year. I've got 3 months of Cocoa Daisy kits not touched so decided to start there for the Dec kit. (it's a sketch but can't remember where! I will check) I was then looking at Ronda's blog today and her top 10 for last year and was totally inspired to make these LO's.
Mum and II love this one so much I think I will remake it into a canvas
2010 Summary for OllieSo after that one I realised I needed to do the same for Will and both the boths for 2009. Which got me thinking about all the photo's I take on my phone I then had a tidy in my craft room and found all these backgounds I made last year and then never scrapped!Phew! Not bad for a couple of days! Long may it continue!

Art Journaling and a LO!

So don't fall over but I actually did a LO!! was looking around for so inspiration and loved the colours at the colour room so here is my LO. I love this photo from last year, probably one of my favourites
I saw a challenge last year, was called "dress up" and it was to make dress for each month of the year. I really enjoyed Tim Holtz 12 Tags of christmas and it reminded me of this challenge, sort of 12 tags in a year! I had even brought a maya road chipboard dress form album to use as the base! The challenge is happening again this year here but with an artist style each month, however I have already made my dress! I will mix and match I think, So here is January's Dress!
Finally my journal for the last couple of days. I want to try and journal everyday, even if it is just a 3 word summary for everyday.

Journal Everyday

Julie at Balzer Designs has set a challenge to Journal everyday, doesn't need to be a complete page, just something in your journal. So I have decided to try! I have made my own journal for this one, there aren't enough pages for one for everyday, more like a page per week.
Here is the journal
Here is page for 01/01/11!
