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!

Happy 15th Anniversary, David

A short post today. Happy 15th Anniversary, David. I'm looking forward to many more years together...

Things to ponder on this Eve of a New Year:

1. What moments were your favorite of 2010? What made your heart soar? Reflect on the good moments in the past year. What are the moments that made you smile and laugh out loud until your belly hurt?

2. What have you learned over the past 12 months?

3. What are you looking forward to learning in 2011?

4. I hate resolutions. I swear that we make them in order to break them. Instead of resolutions, set goals. What little things do you want to accomplish in the new year? What one big thing do you want to do this year?

5. Make the time to do what you want to do. Turn off the computer or tv. Let the dishes sit just a little bit longer. Ignore the whispering dust bunnies. Can you find fifteen minutes a day to do the one thing that makes you happiest (think art journaling or whatever calls to you)? Think about it.

Stay safe this New Years Eve. As my junior high teacher always said to us, "Stay safe. Stay sober. Stay outta trouble." Whatever you do, wherever you are, I hope it's a good one.

Oh happy, happy, happy anniversary Kelly and David. It was my 15th in 2010, and like you - it's joyous to be married. (My second time around, I was married for 21years once! With two great sons to show for it!)

I love this post of yours with the list - what a refreshing change from making resolutions. I don't do that - only puts pressure on oneself and disappointment if they are not achieved.

But your 'goals' well that's altogether different.

Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy 2011

And I do intend to keep journalling - thanks to my 'initiation' though one of your courses.

Kelly, I just loved hearing your love and elopement story. Happy anniversary!

I had a fabulous time at Rejuvenations. I'm sorting out my pile of "stuff," but am having computer problems today. Yuk! Thank you for your very kind words as well.
