Why Scrapbook Difficult Topics?

He that conceals his grief finds no remedy for it. Turkish Proverb

With all the emotions we cover in our kits at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out, the ones that seem to get our members most inspired are the ones that start out sounding 'negative'. No matter what the theme of a kit, we explore both sides of the coin, but when we start with a word like 'LOSS', there's something deeply moving that happens.

Good tears start to flow. Old pains subside. Hearts are lightened and lifted.

For me, that's the whole idea...to move this amazing, multimedia, hands-on craft from day-to-day review toward life-altering and life-affirming catharsis.

Here's our October kit, LOSS. Perfect for all your autumn thoughts, as well as the ones that reside in the autumn of your mind. What do you want to lose so you can gain even more? What losses from your past are ready to fly away?
