Hamilton Dance Party | The Nerd Nest 1

I’ve been working on the gaps in my “extras” pages for past years lately. Often, I’ll look through my photos for these stories when I’m deciding how to use kits or when I want to make sure I’m not wasting photo paper and need to add a few more photos … Continue

November Day in the Life 2016 | The Nerd Nest 1

I’m working on projects with my Freckled Fawn November embellishment kit and one of the ideas I had for the kit, which has a lot of house icons, was to document “a day at home.” I looked through my backlog of my monthly Day in the Life photos to see … Continue

Ava's Birthday Day in the Life | The Nerd Nest 1

I love doing Day in the Life monthly, and for 2017 my random number generated day to record monthly is the first. In July, that meant that Day in the Life was on Ava’s third birthday!

I usually just take more photos than usual and jot a few notes for … Continue

31 Scary Days 2017 | The Nerd Nest 1

In October, I recorded 31 Scary Days for the third year! I kept track of one thing a day I was doing with scary media (though a lot of these things were ongoing over multiple days).

This year I decided to do a visual version, including images from the Internet … Continue

September 1-3 2016 | The Nerd Nest 1

After finishing up the October weekly spreads in my 2016 pocket scrapbooking album, I decided to keep going filling in the gaps and started on September!

Because I put breaks in-between weekly spreads for each month in order to include thematic pages, I end up with some “partial” weeks at … Continue

September 17-23 2017 | The Nerd Nest 1

I was inspired to make tons of pages with the Freckled Fawn October embellishment kit! This spread was inspired by my last journaling card standing from the cards that coordinate with the kit–a mug that says “finally fall.” I decided to use it to make a spread about the … Continue
