What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

Do I look like I'm from Boston??

Cue Twilight Zone music. Enter Rod Serling.As I left to go get Tristan today, I had the strangest experience. I walked down my stairs, past my building. There was a woman walking towards me. She was walking with her head up. She went to walk passed me and stopped. "You're from Boston, right?" "Ummmmm, yes." (Kelly starts wildly looking around for hidden video cameras). I have NO idea who this woman is. She starts asking me all of these questions. "You're a writer?" (Um, yes and no.) "A musician?" (Um, at a time-yes and no...and no one would ever ever have seen my play anywhere as the only playing of the drums I did was in my bedroom or at DiCenso's drum shop in Quincy when I was taking my lessons.) She told me she had just moved here and that she lived around the corner. She moved here to do songwriting. I still have no idea who she is (she did tell me her name, Heidi). I was seriously waiting for Rod Serling to step around from the corner.

Speaking of strange occurrences, how weird is it that it snowed in Las Vegas (3.6") and that Malibu got a dusting of snow on Wednesday!?!?!?! Tristan was pissed when he found that out. He wants a snow day *really* bad. I had to remind him that you need snow in order to have a snow day.

Wow that was strange. I would have asked her how she knew all these things about me. Maybe she googled you or something. Weird.

Tell Tristian we even had a Snow Day in Southern Louisiana. Now that is weird. But I really can't beleive it snowed in Las Vegas. And people don't believe in Global Warming. LOL I hope he gets his snow....one day.

I wanted to hear more about the WOMAN! Can't wait for you to run into her again. Smooky, as my kids used to say... ~PJ

Great pages, Kelly. It appears that Heidi, in addition to being a songwriter, is a stand-up psychic. If she's not too needy, she might make a heck-on-an-interesting friend.

Wow! That happened to me too! The man asked if i was from Michocan, Mexico, i said no. He said i had a "look". i told my mom and she said, Your grandma was! i had no idea and that is how i found out about roots from over there, how weird!

i love your journal pages, kelly! and i know you have no idea who i am, either, but given the nature of your funny story i thought it was a good opportunity to jump in here and tell you how much i dig your colorful and expressive art. (i found you from ricë's blog.)

I love those kind of stories. I TOO hope you run into Heidi again!

Merry Christmas to you and your family Kelly. xoxo Sherry

...and tell him you have to make up snow days in the summer when everybody else is out of school. That's no fun! :)
