My “Camp Reset” Journey

I’m not sure what happened, because I’m not much of a joiner, but I went to “Camp Reset” this summer, and it’s been a blast! It’s a virtual camp put together and run by Cori at “The Reset Girl, and it’s all about self care and goal setting, and boy did I need it!

My usual routine was to jump out of bed and start ticking things off my to do list, but since “arriving” at camp, I’ve changed things up a bit. I wish I could say that self care is my new “jam”, but I’m pretty stubborn and definitely set in my ways…

…but a few changes have been made…

…and I’ve created a couple of “self care kits”.

I was shocked at how many products I had tucked around the house with good intentions.  I pulled any hand and feet care products into a vintage suitcase in my bedroom, and the rest of this into a smaller basket in my bathroom. And now I use all of it! Amazing!

My “cabin”.

Located in my sewing room, this is creativity central in my home. When camp is over, that fabric covered foam core will become my new vision board. Making a vision board was one of the camp activities, but I wanted one where it was more “in my face” so to speak.

The suitcase in the previous photo is now my Faith journaling organizer. I haven’t said much about that on my blog because I was still working out how organize prayer time into my schedule. But, after watching Cori’s Youtube video on how to put together a prayer binder (on continuous loop) I’m pretty much set.

Above is a bible journaling page I did during “Chapel Day” at camp. Oh my gosh, it was so much fun! I went to a Catholic camp as a kid, so we had chapel everyday and Mass on Sundays, so this really took me back to camp as a kid. This page is a “tip-in” style of bible journaling that Cori prefers, and I think I prefer it too.

Art journaling activities. You know I was on board for this!

And YAY…I added another piece to my never-ending list of creative pursuits, Discbound  notebooks!

I started my Camp Handbook in a large 3 ring binder because I needed the freedom of moving things around, but I just didn’t like it. I hesitated at the expense of investing in a whole new system,  but I’m glad I relented, I love it! I’m going to make another discbound notebook for another project soon, so I’ll share some photos and how-to’s on that later.

Camp isn’t over until next weekend, but I have a few irons in the fire, and I didn’t want to put off sharing this for too long.

Cori, aka; The Reset Girl, will be hosting a “Winter Camp” in January, at least that’s the plan. If you don’t know her work, here are a couple of links help you find her: YouTube channel and Website. She loves all things paper crafting, so you will find her website full of inspiration.

I hope you will find Cori’s community as inspiring as I have!

Until next time,

Thank you for visiting,

Have a wonderful week,

~Patty

  1. Glad you’re enjoying “camp”, Patty!! Always love seeing what creative things you’re up to. You’re so darn good @ this! My crafting, quilting days are pretty much over (arthritis), so with work I @ least get to see what others are up to. Have fun & look forward to your next blog.
