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!

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.

Love your dress! I am also using the Maya Road dress forms - it makes it so much easier to keep them similar in size! ;)

I just adore your dress. It is so feminine. I love the dress form, I'm wondering where you got it from?
