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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

January 8, 2009 journal pages

I'm teaching tomorrow (Sunday) in San Diego at the Stamp Addict. I feel better but still not up to par. Tristan heads back to school on Monday so I promised him I'd take him to a couple of favorite places today.

OH! The Post Office issued Edgar Allen POE stamps!! Woo hoo! Tristan had to send out thank you cards and we're standing at the PO yesterday. He keeps saying "I want Star Wars stamps" (you know, he is almost 12 and he likes to be funny). The woman tries to sell us Oregon stamps. I tell her that I just want the heart stamps (I love Oregon but the stamps of states are boring to me). She pulls out Poe and says "I also have THIS guy." "THIS guy??" "Uh, yeah, I'll take THAT guy." *sigh*

When I went to the Post Office on Wednesday, I tried to get the Poe stamps and he said the release date wasn't until Feb.!!! I think I'll order them on-line. You pay $1.00 for postage, but at least I get a good selection and what I want!!! Yeah for Poe!!!

As far as what you write in your journal, I'm still struggling with that and what my journal pages look like. Slowly I'm getting it. My visual journal is mine. I don't have to make it a masterpiece and I can say whatever I want in it!!! That being said, I do scan my pages at a low resolution so people can't read it easily, but that's OK. I'm thrilled with your class!!!

Hope you feel better soon!!!

LOL that is so funny . . . "we have THIS guy". Obviously the postal worker didn't have a clue *sigh*. I'll have to pick some up when I'm at the P.O. on Monday! How cool.

Renee said...

I agree with Tristan, star wars stamps sound cool.

Love Renee

I can so empathize with you at the post office! Ours had Albert Bierstadt stamps & when I requested them, the clerk gave me that puzzled look - as in "who the heck is that?". *lol*
Glad you're feeling a bit better!

Sorry Kelly, by accident I commented as Maya, my daughter, but it was from me, Orly

Glad you're feeling a little better, Kelly. Hey, maybe the guys over at Nova could create a color and call it Kelly Red. What do you think? LOL! Throughout the years I've always heard people compliment you on your great head of hair. Lucky girl. Blessed with a great color and fullness!

Poe stamps! I have to have them!!! I love Poe.

Love the journal pages. Yours are always so strong emotionally. I love that best about them.

THIS guy? *drops everything and runs to post office*
Thanks for the heads up :)

Romilly said...

Yay POE! Conundrum... if I go buy Poe stamps, am I going to be able to use all of them, combined with the leftover Nutcracker stamps?

Oh who am I kidding... I must have some!

(PS Found you via VoodooCafe who's sending everyone over here this week!)
