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!

More Cocoa Daisy

Another LO from the crop, a LO with faux stitching and about something sentimental.
Mine is of the earrings my dad had made for me using the diamonds from my Mum's engagement ring.
One of the classes from the crop was about how to alter a book, I didn't follow the class but it did give me the inspiration to alter a book in another way.

Scrap Rat May Kit

I have started getting the monthly kit from the scrap rat, but I was a bit stuck for inspiration with it, so I checked out the design team work and used thiers as inspiration! I managed 4 LO's at Lisa's on Thursday, a lovely day it was too!
