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 Books

I'm on the fence about keeping the top two books but I LOVE Homespun Style. I picked it up at Zinnia yesterday. It's a keeper! I'll have to flip through the other two books, Daring Greatly and Modern Vintage Illustration a couple more times to decide if they stay or go.

Have you discovered any new books lately?

Quick Class Update:

I picked up Orly Avineri's One Artist Journal last week and am soaking it up. Wonderful book. Also, Journal Fodder 365 by Eric M. Scott and David R. Modler. I'm not sure about that one but I've only flipped through it so far.

Hope all is well with you.

Peace & Love,

Kelly --
Just finished Lotta Jansdotter's book Handmade Living -- enjoyed it very much but don't want to keep it. Are you interested? Or if you want to post about it, and someone who reads your blog wants it, I'd be happy to send it along.
