GriefWords.com by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D. Our society continues to perpetuate a number of myths about grief and mourning. This article describes five of the most common myths about grief. Myth #1: Grief and mourning are the same experience. Most people tend to use the words grief and mourning interchangeably. Simply stated, grief is the internal thoughts and feelings we experience when someone we love dies. In reality, many people in our culture grieve, but they do not mourn. Myth #2: There is a predictable and orderly progression to the experience of grief. Stage-like thinking about both dying and grief has been appealing to many people. The concept of "stages" was popularized in 1969 with the publication of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross' landmark text On Death and Dying. One such consequence is when people around the grieving person believe that he or she should be in "stage 2" or "stage 4" by now. Each person's grief is uniquely his or her own. They're not crazy, just grieving. About the Author Dr.

a quick tutorial : : book beads « the smallest forest I haven’t added any text instructions, because I think the photos are clear enough. All that’s left to do know is make a whole heap of these, in different shapes (but always symmetrical shapes!) and sizes, and stringing them up. This uses the same binding method used to make childrens board-books…the only difference is that you glue the front and back cover together, as well, and create a book in the round, without and ending or beginning…and that’s some pretty heavy symbolism for a pretty paper bead!

6 Tips for Using Patterned Paper Backgrounds on your Scrapbook Pages | Get It Scrapped! by Debbie Hodge I love using patterned papers — especially for backgrounds. However, it’s often a little tricky making sure the photos aren’t overwhelmed by the paper. 1) be generous Text patterns are back, and Jennifer Wilson used “holiday-love” themed paper to set the tone for “Love Actually is all Around.” The mat is a much lighter color than the patterned paper AND than the photos on it. Love Actually is All Around by Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper 2) lay a foundation The bright geometric patterned paper on the background of “Hangin’ Poolside” by Alicia Geiss is wonderful for this juicy summer page. These scalloped mats ground the other elements to the page – everything sits on or flows through them.These mats with their very pale pattern provide resting space for the eyes.
