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 almost twenty years now. 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!

some art from the weekend's classes...

I had a great time teaching this weekend at Zinnia and Millie Paper crafts. Above are some of the altered photos I created in class on Sunday. In the very first photo on the top left-the mannequin one, that photo was taken by my friend, Cindy Schaben (thanks Cindy). Isn't it cool?? She wanted me to alter it so I did and had a blast doing so!! I always like to create along side my students demo'ing techniques and the many ways of creating.

OK, on a different note, anyone watch the Oscars and wonder what the hell was going through their minds during the memorial portion of the show? I frickin' love Queen Latifah, but c'mon. She's really more important then honoring those in the biz that are gone? What was with all of the zooming in and out. They totally screwed up on several people including Cyd Charisse. Bad, bad, totally YOUR BAD, Academy!!! You f'ed that one up. It wasn't the best of shows, but I'm really disappointed with the Tribute portion-BAD. Oh, how I loved Sean Penn's speech...*hee hee* he's awesome.

Don't read tomorrow's post if you want to save $ and never buy any of the 3 books I'm going to mention...

Books.. did you say books?
What time you posting?

My husband hasn't worked in 10 days straight but books are like crack to me.
I don't need to eat. I have a stack of books next to my bed to feed my mind :)

Kelly, these are all looking fantastic. I sound like such a bore everytime I come here. Like a parrot going 'fantastic fantastic fantastic.' Okay, I will stop for the day.
