Jenallyson - The Project Girl - Fun Easy Craft Projects including Home Improvement and Decorating - For Women and Moms January 11th, 2014 CHA is the Craft Hobby Association trade show held annually in Anaheim, CA. The company that I design scrapbooking products – My Mind’s Eye – has a booth there, and I usually attend with them and help plan/decorate the trade show booth. At the trade show various craft companies release new products and write orders with various vendors and retailers. With that intro… I flew into LAX on Thursday with a few designer friends, and we headed straight for a fun day in Santa Monica. Which, awesomely, included the ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier.

Christmas - Sundae Bath Salts I just wanted to let you all know that I just put one sundae together. It came out sooo adorable!!! I just made the handout tag to go with it, too and the clip art looks just like the float. This is what I did. I went and bought kosher salt at Wal-Mart for 88 cents for 3lbs. I bought 3 boxes.
Freckles & Purls Halona is now available for purchase on Ravelry, Craftsy, Patternfish and, of course, here on my blog! Halona is a semicircular shawl with an elongated wingspan to help with draping (and wrapping!). The finished size is approximately 74 inches x 20 inches, depending on gauge and how severely you block it. Instructions for the body of the shawl are written and the border has both written and charted instructions so you can pick your preference. The pattern is super simple to memorize and knits up fairly quickly so you can have it ready in time for the cooler fall weather (which a lot of you are already experiencing!
rockstar diaries today we have teamed up with our partner, naturebox, to giveaway a 6-month snack subscriptions to two lucky readers! (details at the end of this post.) so far on this family trip, we have clocked in something like 15+ hours of travel time in the car (not including the plane, just talking time buckled up on the good old fashioned highway…) that’s a lot of time on the road for a family that doesn’t even own a car back home in manhattan. for the most part, it’s been alright. in my opinion, in order to have a successful road trip of any kind, you need three things. one:: good company, two:: good music, and three:: lots and lots of good snacks! while i’m usually stocking up on junk food and soda for the car, i am proud to say i’ve been working hard on ditching these kinds of food habits for better ones over the past several months. we brought along a bunch of fresh veggies and fruit and several snack bags from naturebox for the drive this trip and so far they have been a huge hit!
Handmade Goodness for Contemporary Gift Giving & Party Plannin Finally August is here! Gee, soon will be holiday season with the Halloween then the Thanksgiv......ok better not go there. Let's enjoy August for now, when the summer is hot and that it's our BIRTHDAY MONTH too...yay!!!!! This coming August 14th is our 3rd birthday (still small but we are growing) We're so excited and grateful for that wonderful three years of creating handmade cuteness to all of you. Well as a small company with small of everything (tiny office, limited budget and staff), it's not all easy breezy journey to stand tall to this day. When we first started, we're simply nothing -- we were just another crafters popped up on the internet selling oh that kind of felt stuffies.
We’ve been making an effort to save money and the environment here at Nerd HQ. (Okay, mostly money, but the environmental impact is a great bonus.) Hubby takes a cup of coffee to work every day, and for a long time we relied mostly on disposable travel cups. We had re-usable mugs, but since they had to be hand washed they frustrated me.

lizard & ladybug I know it's almost Easter BUT I wanted to share the fun party we had to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! a little background: I've wanted to have a messy art party for the longest time.
Its been rather a long time since I have last posted. I would actually put it in the "embarrassing" category! Many reasons for taking so long, thankfully nothing bad. My Favourite

a little house by the big woods Mid-April, right in the midst of our daily online bird watching, I was washing dishes when I happened to glance up and spot a commotion amongst the cows. I paused for a moment and watched. There seemed to be something foreign moving just inside the fence. As I watched, a saw a white head bob around, and huge wings flapping along the ground. "Oh!"
Monday Artday Obviously, Monday Artday is dead and it ain't coming back. I loved this blog. I loved contributing and I loved the participation. It always felt friendlier than Illustration Friday - more intimate, not as vast and stark. But, everything must come to an end, I suppose. Now here comes the shameless self-promotion part: I contribute regularly to my own illustration blog and I have another blog, It's Been A Slice, where I ramble on about almost anything.
