In 1999 our baby grandson was killed by a drunk driver. He was 7 months old. Two days ago, on his birthday his mommy took her own life. She left behind 2 young children, her family and her friends, who loved her so much, but never knew the dark place of despair she had travelled to. Our hearts are broken. We have cried so hard that our throats hurt. Our chests are heavy with grief. How can this be? Why?!

Sweet girl I'd give anything to turn back the clock, to know you needed us, to run and hold you safely in my arms. To beg you not to go. I can't fathom the kind of despair that drove you to leave us. I can hear your laughter, picture your smile, remember your sweetness. You, who loved so much, felt alone. You are with our sweet angel baby now and we are left here without you.

How do we carry on after such tragedy? My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. This wonderful set shows the pain. Hopefully you will find peace soon.

@grace2244 Thank you for your kind words and your caring heart. The funereal is over and we spent time with family and friends and now I am visiting at one of my daughter's place with her , her hubby and her darling children. She was so close to her and has so many memories of smiles and happy times with her. It has both touched and amazed me to see her strength and grace through all of this. There is so much comfort in snuggling my sweet grandchildren.

Adult Survivors of Abuse

Adult Survivors of Abuse

This group is for ADULTS dealing with issues of abuse (childhood and/or beyond). For that reason we have an application entry. We ask that you describe briefly your reason for joining the group. There are reasons for joining other than being a survivor. We welcome new members warmly and you will find support and acceptance.
 
BECAUSE OF THE SENSITIVITY AND CONTENT OF ARTWORK DEALING WITH ABUSE ISSUES, YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OLD TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS GROUP.
 
Art therapy can help release or express feelings. For those dealing with dissociation, trauma art is welcome. This is a place to share our trauma and healing art.
 
Feel free to express yourselves. The only limitation is that we all try to avoid explicit images that might be construed as pornographic and endure the wrath of Polyvore. Nudity appears to be fine in the context of art, but displaying the male anatomy might be misinterpreted by outsiders. Using a metaphor is preferred. If you feel strongly that you must use a certain image, maybe try to cover most of it? It is possible that those of us with fragile emotions may "hear" a Polyvore reprimand as something devastating and we don't want that.

Along the lines of fragile emotions be supportive of members and encourage them to wait for their own answers. We want to provide insight to consider or to share our experience and hope. However we want to avoid giving interpretation on others sets or interjecting what they should believe.

CAUTION TO NEW MEMBERS:
A number of members have DID (extreme dissociation and amnesia for horrific childhood abuse). Their sets can be very graphic at times. While you do not all have to look at every other members set you may come across them when browsing. We work together to support each other so you might see messages about triggering and programming. If you feel that might be too intense for you, there is a group called Polyvore Art Therapy where members deal with intense emotions but not necessarily the intensity we do.

With regard to triggers: Due to the nature of abuse issues we have members who will possibly find themselves feeling triggered by certain images or word. We want every member to be responsible for keeping themselves safe. This may mean not looking at certain sets. Each of us has to be aware of our own limitations.
 
Welcome to the group! If you need help, please contact Cindyfaye, Sunnys-System or Mishmashed

Old Farts (folks) on Polyvore

Old Farts (folks) on Polyvore

All you have to do to join is be old and proud of it. We can have Old Fart (folk) contests and enjoy our grey hairs and great wisdom. We can also prove that Polyvore is a place for ALL ages! Please no fashion sets - they will be removed unless they are truly works of art!

The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

As if 10/15, on a temporary Hiatus. Will return. Just need to focus on some things offline at this time.
 
Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!
