Scrapbooking and Journaling through the Hard Times

Life is always a roller coaster ride of ups and downs but it seems this year in particular has included a lot of dips for some of us and many of our customers. Can this hobby we love help us through the hard times? We believe it can. If you’ve experienced the loss of a loved one; a major life change like divorce or layoff; are dealing with your own health issues; or are in the difficult position of being a caregiver for someone else in recovery; then please join us for an evening of learning and creating to help us all begin or continue the healing process.  Gina A. will guide you in making a mini album where you can privately include your feelings, photos and remembrances, and/or faith based prayers and bible quotes.  You’ll receive information about the therapeutic benefits of the arts in our lives as well as journaling and creative suggestions. Whether you want to share a little, a lot, or not at all, everyone will leave with a personalized mini book and a lot of helpful tips for moving forward in challenging times.   $26
