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!

Thank you!!!!

Thank you to everyone who purchased one of my books, passed on the link or even just popped into check it out. I'm feeling very grateful this morning. This little book of mine has been stirring around in my head for so long that when others understand and appreciate what I'm trying to do, I'm just full of emotion right now.

A busy weekend ahead for the Kilmer Family. I'm not teaching but I have lots on my To Do List. I'm trekking to Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale next week. My long time readers know how very much I love teaching at Debbie's store. I'm really looking forward to it! I'll be cutting boards and papers, printing handouts and gathering supplies this weekend.

Some quotes in honor of Dia de Los Muertos:

 "I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." -Groucho Marx

 "From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity."- Edvard Munch

 "Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them."-George Eliot

 "While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die."-Leonardo daVinci

"As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death."-Leonardo daVinci

 "There's a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out."- Lou Reed, "Magic and Loss"
