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

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 1

I just got my new Freckled Fawn kit and I jumped in using it right away! It has a lot of cute house icons, so I automatically jumped to documenting one of the home improvement projects we’ve been working on. I wrote out a list of different ideas I had … 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

At the beginning of this month, the only spread I had in my albums for October 2016 was for my October Day in the Life. Now, all of my weekly spreads are complete! (I still have a few thematic pages to finish off).

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

I’ve been sharing the tons of projects I’ve been making with the Freckled Fawn October kit! Mostly I made projects for October 2016 and a few for September 2017, but I broke out of the autumn documenting for this one. The gold silk leaves (which were a bonus item … Continue

I’m just going to overload you with pocket spreads because I’m so excited about finishing up October 2016! This one covers the everyday stuff from October 23-31.

October 1-8 2016 | The Nerd Nest 1

During my recent productivity burst with Freckled Fawn’s October embellishment kit, I dived into making weekly pocket pages for October 2016. I finished the whole month in a week! That’s why “getting behind” doesn’t bother me–sometimes I have more time to “make” than others and that’s just fine.

Here’s … Continue
