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!

10 February 2011 Journal Page

I'll be spending a quiet weekend at home getting some work done. Not sure yet what we'll do for David on Father's Day. I'll make something special for him, for sure! He reads my blog so no secrets spilled here, yet.

I took Tristan to the movies today. He saw Green Lantern in 3D and raved about it (I told him 3D is a total waste of money, but he's 14 and doesn't listen). I went and saw Midnight in Paris which I absolutely LOVED. All I want to do now is listen to Cole Porter and Josephine Baker and read great literature and make art and daydream. If you're on the fence about it, go see it anyways. Do NOT look up anything about the film before you go. Trust me. It's sweet. It's clever. It's Woody Allen's Love Letter to Paris (after so many he's done to NYC). I hope to see it again. In the meantime, I'll be dreaming about Paris.

My three summer films that I want to see: Midnight in Paris (check!), The Tree of Life and Film Socialisme

Some Blog Love:

Juliana Coles has new summer classes up! I am taking her Initiation class and I LOVE it. I love her! She's one of the best teachers and artists around.

TapeSwell has new tape. Be prepared to drool! Three little words: Clear Script Tape. (I love it all, but I'm always partial to script. :) ) Pssst...Tapeswell has extended a 15% off of your entire purchase (minimum $10) to readers of my blog if you use the coupon code KELLY when ordering.

View some of Dan Eldon's Journals here. It will get you all jazzed up for the new book, by Jennifer New, due out in July.

Speaking of books, this book is still very much on my wish list. Here's a great peek into it.

Great page. I want to see Green Lantern and Tree of Life too. Green Lantern was filmed in New Orleans, so cool. I have one book about Dan Eldon, this one looks good too. I love the script tape too.

Oh, man! Just placed my order and I see your coupon! Oh, well. I did get the Cityscape tape (remember the one you showed before of a cityscape and people walking their dog, etc.?) It was too expensive for me to get that but boy I snagged this one! I love TapeSwell!
