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 more than twenty years. 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!

Hi Kelly,

It's late, and I'm not sure why I'm
commenting. I love your blog,
but I'm normally just a pop in and see
what you've been up to kind of
person. Once or twice a month.

But I woke up from a lovely sleep, and
thought of you. I keep seeing the photos in
my mind that you posted a while ago of your dad's
notes that he would leave around for you. It's so
beautiful that he did that. And even more
beautiful is that your love, and how you
miss him, is a testament to the charm
and grace of your father. It's wonderful
the love you two shared. Surely, he must
live on in his written words, and in the
echo of his patience and love.

Anyway, it's weird but I thought you
might like to know that, even now, your
papa is touching lives and spreading
grace. Thanks for sharing that bit of
your world with us. I've begun leaving
little notes hidden away for the people
I love too. I hope I'm worthy of the
teacher who gave me the idea.

Thanks for your generous heart.
Have a good night.

Thanks for your kind words.
I love the idea that you are leaving notes for loved ones to find. My Dad was a big sender of cards and postcards. I write notes to Tristan when I go away and his Dad gives them to him daily. I write notes and cards to my family, as well. David always gets love letters in the form of real letters and journal pages.
You must have misunderstood me as Dad was always writing on scraps of paper but they weren't for us to find. They were for him, especially in his line of work, he was always making notes. :) I consider them gifts though as I was so happy to have them after he was gone. I love handwritten things and especially having these bits from my Dad, makes them all the more precious. :)
I love that you took the idea and you are doing it yourself. That makes my heart smile big.
