The Good Grief Scrapbooking Challenge
The story of this course starts way back in 2007. That's when Amanda, creator of Good Grief Scrapbooking, lost her dad in a farming accident. Her early grief left her, like so many grieving, just going through the motions - trying to get through the day. She was disconnected from scrapbooking, which had always been a creative outlet for her. We're guessing this might sound familiar.
When she finally came back to scrapbooking, specifically scrapbooking about her dad, she felt a weight lift. She reconnected with her dad. She realized she could use scapbooking as a way to work through things she missed, things she wished could be different, things she wanted to remember.
On the two year anniversary of her dad's death, she brought her revelation about the value of grief scrapbooking to anyone who would listen. She (joined by some fabulous contributors) launched a grief scrapbooking challenge blog.
Good Grief Scrapbooking + What's Your Grief
In 2013, the team at What's Your Grief discovered the Good Grief Scrapbooking Challenge. Both had also lost parents far too young and were mental health professionals who loved creative coping for grief.
Neither were scrapbookers. Not even a little.
But the Good Grief Scrapbooking Challenge prompts managed to convert us - we've used them for scrapbooking and art journaling ever since.
We're thrilled to now make available the Good Grief Scrapbooking Challenge in combination with some of WYG's grief support lessons and favorite creative art journaling prompts.
