In the spirit of bringing all of my things into place, I thought I’d put together a blog & project organiser. I have seen other bloggers use them with some success. Given the small financial investment needed to set one up, I have decided to give it a go.  I thought about using my tablet to do this, but I just couldn’t find a decent solution.  While I love my technology, sometimes things just need to be done with pen and paper.

Pretty FolderTaking inspiration from Wrapped up in Rainbows organiser,  I rummaged through my existing stationery before outlaying for new gear. Luckily I had an A5 folder and some A5 card in the study, I added the lined notepaper and created the sections that would suit me.

Because I love my things looking pretty, I also grabbed some “spare” fabric from my stash, and covered the folder. The folder itself is still a bit of a work in progress, but I think it has started being effective already.

My goal is to use this tool to help me keep my projects in line, and my blog posts rolling with a little more frequency.

I’ve always felt that I’ve needed to compartmentalise my life.  Which is why I thought that I needed multiple places online to talk about different things.

But I don’t.

Which is why I’ve brought everything to one place.  All my crafty stuff, mixed in with my nerdy stuff, all my gaming, knitting, life adventure, tales of woe, and of delight in to one blog.

With my recent epiphany about my Evolution, I’ve decided that my online name “Vintage Grrl” is also redundant. I was also not happy about moving everything to “The Nerd Mama”, so here I am.. ImagiNERDtive!!!

I’m a bit excited about feeling free to post everything in one place.  No more self imposed boundaries when it comes to my hobbies.

One of the reasons I’ve not been posting much, is that I’ve not had the photos to go with my posts.  I know I have a camera on my phone, but sometimes it’s just not enough.

Unable to locate the original charger, I tried to get a replacement, but apparantly that was too hard.  Thankfully I found a retailer who had some “universal” chargers that they were willing to test on my battery for me.

So now I have my camera again!  Yay!  I am now able to take half decent photos of the few things that I have finished, and have on the go.. WOO!
