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!

March 8, 2009 journal pages

My friend, Jeannine Stein (author of soon to be released Re-bound) sent me a note today telling me about a book that *gasp* I DID NOT know about! It's called Mail Me Art. You can find more out about the book here. It's totally fabulous, but one that some may want to see before they buy. It was right up my alley and practically jumped into my hands at the bookstore.
Oh!! One of my tape orders arrived. I HIGHLY recommend this vendor. She shipped like lightning speed. I've placed a couple of orders with her (she probably thinks I'm a nutty stalker but her prices are right and her tape is quite yummy!!) Check out her etsy shop here.

Hi Kelly,
The Mail Me Art book says its available for pre-order, how did it almost jump in your hands,,,, is it out now?? I'm a little confused.

I wanted to tell you thank you for all your book news, you find the best books!

Kelly Kilmer said...

It's out. I bought it at B and noble...my local borders has it too.
amazon isn't always up to date as to when things are being released. frustrating!

Kelly, those pages from your journal are beautiful. I especially loved the drawing of the woman. Would that be a self-portrait? Couldn't help but notice the gorgeous red hair!
Just go with the flow and it'll all be fine. Sress is such a waste of time. Take it from someone who knows. ;]

Love Renee
