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!

Spring or Summer?

I'm not a hot weather fan. At. All. I am a Fall Girl. I can even be a Spring Girl but not on days like today when the thermometer is pushing 90 plus. Yuck.

All that said, I had an awesomely cool day teaching at Zinnia in So Pasadena (check out the mushrooms!!! You should see them in person!). Thanks to Tamara, Suki, my fabulous students and Ms. Alley! Most awesome day!!

I'm on overdrive prepping for my classes next weekend at Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, AZ. I'm excited. Can you tell?!??!

Please, please, please if you read one thing all month, let it be this. Please pass it on, too:

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for posting this!!! This spoke to me at a time when I've been struggling a bit.

And I am the same as you: a fall girl. Can't stand the summer heat. Love the spring air, BUT I know it leads to summer so it depresses me a little. *SIGH*

Kelly,

Thanks so much for the Austin Kleon article link. What a great inspiration. Plus I'm now a fan of his Newspaper blackout poetry What fun!

I'm definitely not a fan of the heat, so the question is, WHY do I live in FL??? I love the fall. The changes in the trees, Halloween, cool nights, my birthday (Oct). The best month to be in FL is November.

Cheers!
D in FL :D currently fighting vicious hordes of mosquitoes
