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!

Last Bits of my Dad's Journal

Unsent Christmas Cards from Last Year from Dad and Mom

"Search and Destroy" Dad took me to see this and he HATED it. I don't remember a damn thing about it other than Christopher Walken being in it and I wanted to see it. I just remember our discussion after the movie with Dad saying that it was one of the worst movies he'd ever seen. I was just grateful that he took me to see it! We often went to the movies together, sharing popcorn and laughs.

A business card with Dad's writing on it; a cassette cover of a mixed tape he made and an article about him


A postcard from the 80's when we were living in Weymouth
A glimpse back
Thanks for sharing in the journey with me. I hope to have a slide show up of all of the pages sometime soon. I'll be posting my new journal soon!

What a wonderful journal, Kelly, so emotional and probably therapuetic to make and look back through...Thanks for sharing this journal with us.

I remember coming across my Dad's handwriting once, it took my breath away. It's nice to have these bits of love.

Thank you for sharing your personal journey of loss. I hope that the sadness get as small as the memories are big.

This one is so meaningful...in addition to being a visual treat.

@Murphy's Mom-Dad sent the postcard from when he was in AZ for work. I'm assuming he meant himself when he said big ears.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.
