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!

Thinking out loud...

Things have been crazy here lately with all of the apartment stuff going on. We're being told that sometime this week, they're going to replace all of our windows. I have been cleaning and rearranging things like crazy.

I have blog posts set up through Wednesday with lots of blog love. I may take a mini break from my 4 a.m. posting and regular blog love to post several short blog posts throughout the day. These posts would be of photographs of things around my home (like what you see here) that I find interesting and that I think (hope) you may enjoy. These are images that you can save, keep and print out for personal use as much as you want.

What do you think?

Is there anything special that you would like to see? Shots of pens, books, etc...? Anything that you, the blog reader, would like me to focus on?

So far, I like every subject you've ever posted about. I don't know what I'd like to see more of. I love your book lists, reviews, cover pics and ideas. Except that it makes me hungry to by more books...LOL I love pics of your pages, pics of your art, blog posts with thoughtful insights and no pics...It's all good.

I had no idea (how would I..) that you get up at 4am to make blog posts. I did that years ago when I was posting to a blog in the UK, then started writing in advance and scheduling posts. I experienced some burn-out, and rebelled by posting just whenever I felt like it. Now I'm trying out M-F. Finding what works, then revising it between my schedule and the changing habits of the web. It all evolves.

Your posts always hold my interest, so it's hard for me to suggest what to keep, what to change, what to add. In my opinion, it's all good. I tend to go to blogs because they're different from each other, not because they're the same. I like the variety, not the comfortable chair.

I love all of your posts, so it doesnt matter to me just keep em coming and I will continue to be inspired to carve out time for me to create. Went into Stampin yesterday to use my coupon that was issued in the Unfold class of 1/9 and was soo pleased to see they are carrying some Hambley stuff. Yeah thanks for pushing for that!!

Kelly, I really like seeing your art supplies and books and especially love the pictures of your journals. I am curious how you store or display your journals. I would like to see that. Thanks!
