Winter Blues Game Plan

Winter Blue Game Plan Spread using The Reset Girl Winter Mini Kit and the Crafty Club Playbook - Lydia Cost

I had a page left from week 1 of my art journaling pages in my Crafty Playbook, so I decided that I would create a little game plan for combatting the winter blues.

Is it just me or do you guys suffer from the winter blues from time to time.  I’ve never officially been diagnosed with SAD, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a little more relevant than I hope.  I have to be very diligent about taking my self-care seriously during these gloomy, cold months.

I used the Winter Mini Kit in The Reset Girl Shop, designed by my fellow teammate, Claudia!  She’s so talented!  It had the perfect “Winter” banner for my page title.

This mini kit includes some of the cutest, plaid stars, and I’ve been pasting them everywhere.

I finished off this page with a great post it from the Crafty Club Kit, and it really held the most important part of this page.

The Righteous Thrive

Scripture Writing in The Reset Girl 's Crafty Club Playbook using the Focused Collection - Lydia Cost

I’m back again today with some more of The Reset Girl’s Focused collection, and I’ll say it again, I’m in love!  All the lilac simply stole my heart.  I have also fallen in love with working in my Crafty Club Playbook, so I’m just writing out my scriptures on my art journal pages.

Luke 8:14-15 (ESV)

14 And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. 15 As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.

Psalm 92:12-14 (ESV)

12 The righteous flourish like the palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 They are planted in the house of the Lord;
they flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They still bear fruit in old age;
they are ever full of sap and green,

As For Me and My House

I went totally insane with the pink last weekend, and I feel like I was slathering it all over everything.  This Bible page was no exception.  As soon as I got the paint on, I thought to myself that this was a terrible mistake, but I went with it.  And funny thing is, I quite liked the happy and bright result!

These little houses were cut from the Crate Paper Good Vibes Paper, Perfection.  I couldn’t get over how cute they were paired with some of the icons from the cardstock stickers set.

I piled on a ton of alphas, which is my absolute trademark.  They are my favorite crafty item!

This was another page that really didn’t require any journaling, because I did some separate prayer time dedicated to my little family.  I’ll share the prayer with you from a great article I read the other day.

“Father, thank you for my family. Lord, you know their hearts. You know their strengths, their weaknesses and every tiny detail about them. God, I pray that You draw them closer to You. Show them who You are. Let them see their need for you, Lord. Capture their hearts and fill them with Your Spirit. Lord, I pray that they would seek You above all else. That as they wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night, You would be on their minds and hearts. That everywhere they go and in everything they do, they would see You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

8 1/2 x 11: Butterflies

8 1/2 x 11 Scrapbook Layout using Maggie Holmes Gather and Scraps - Lydia Cost

I was so blessed to find myself with a little scrap-therapy time last week, and it felt so nice to scrap with some actual scraps.  Sometimes it is so nice to step away from design team work and scheduled projects, for a little scrapping that’s just for you.  I forget how amazing it feels to create with no idea of the end result.

I took this amazing photo of a monarch at a local wetlands area, and I knew I wanted to get messy and scrappy with it.  I worked out of a little hexagon box of scraps on my desk, and I even included a piece from our recent modem installation under my photo.

That day I felt like I would have made Suse Fish proud with all my scrap using!

I certainly have to remind myself that creating to simply create is so important for my well-being, and I was really happy with this messy little layout about a simple little butterfly!
