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!

New Journal Debut!

Here's the cover (so far) and inside front cover of my new journal. Please ignore the copyright notice on the bottom of the middle picture. I put it in picasa to crop the pictures and it popped up. I'm too lazy to change it at the moment. LOL.

Remember to always put your contact info on the inside front cover of your journal! I can't wait to show you the inside pages. The journal is bigger than the previous one-much bigger! It's 8 x 10" with a hard cover. The spine is reinforced with heavy ribbon glued down with Aleene's Tacky glue. The Canvas on the front is from Prima.

Two classes this weekend in So CA: Zinnia in So Pasadena and Stampin' From The Heart in L.A. Can't wait! More info and pix here. To sign up, please contact the stores.

My issue of Spoonful came in the mail on Saturday. The editors are right. It is a spoonful of creative happiness. It's tiny but packed in a short burst of joy! It's the perfect size read for a quick trip on the bus, or for standing in line at the post office. It made me smile, and smile BIG, and I really couldn't ask for anything more.

Noam Chomsky on Democracy Now and the importance of speaking up and speaking out.

Remembering Rachel Corrie.

Your new journal looks fun! I can barley see the spine but it looks like you have some fun stitching going on there. :)

Beautiful as usual Kelly! I love how you show your journals empty and completed. They are usually my favourite pics. :)
