The Finding Hope Challenge 2019

Hello! Today I’m launching the @crafting.out.loud Finding Hope Challenge 2019. For detailed info, please watch my YouTube video below, but the basics are as follows: over the course of July we’re going to journal about all the things that give us hope, that feeling of positive expectation, the things we look forward to, so that by the end of the month we’ll have built up a ‘hope bank’ from which we can make withdrawals during times when our hope needs a bit of a top-up. Also, I’ve created another craft along kit to go with this challenge. Again, details are in the video. I do hope you’ll join me in creating this really useful wellness tool. xxx

Scraptember Day 9: The Lord Heals

Hello, and welcome to Day 9 of Scraptember!

Today, I’m sharing a page I decorated in my Bible. Psalm 147 v 3 is one of the verses that became important to me during my recovery from mental illness. While on a watercolour workshop at The Acorn Christian Healing Foundation last year, I painted a picture that included the words: the Lord heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds. It now hangs on the wall in our lounge, but I wanted to record it in my Bible too. I’ve come to think of this Bible as my Recovery Bible because all the verses I’ve journaled so far have been significant to my recovery in one way or another.

If you’d like to see how this page came together, there’s a process video on YouTube.

Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow. xxx
