      Scrapping is good therapy, isn't it? It lets us get out what's in our head, use our creativity, think about what's going on and try to tell that story. The best part is no one who sees our pages know if it's "right" or "wrong" (the way I often look at my completed pages) for all we see is the beautiful creation that has been posted for us to see. Hang in there - we're all in this together!! :grouphug

      I hear you loudly and clearly. Hugs right back at you. This page is sincerely just spectacularly made with love. I am in awe of this page. If you haven't heard of Jenny Lawson, please look her up and read her books. She is a true champion for everyone who struggles with mental health and physical health. Plus, she is hilarious and awesome. Journaling your feelings is the best way to get it all out. Bravo to you.
