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!

Painting and baking

Wow! I can't believe the school hols are almost over! Sept is going to be bitter sweet for me as Ollie is off to school, ;(. I'll miss him but I am excited for him.

The end of term saw lots of baking and gifts for teachers
Will's teachers got a bag, printed with real apples by Will (inspiration from pintrest )

And cupcake bouquet for his actual teacher

The boys made the tissue paper bumblebees for ollies nursery room

Then cakes for sports day picnic
Pimms for the adults

Rainbow for the kids

Vanilla for school fair

We then went to France for 3 weeks in a gite, I knew I would want to craft while away but would be limited, so I packed some watercolours but firstly took an online class by the amazing
Alisa Burke

I haven't been through all the videos yet but whilst away I did this doodle in my journal

inspired by this print by !Alisa !

Whilst away I saw a challenge by Dina Wakley to make 2 canvas a week in aug, to challenge us to get out of our journals. Well being away I wouldnt be able to do this but I did use my doodle to make myself a canvas. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Here's another doodle I did,

Going to try and make a canvas of this one next!

Wow! That was a long one!
