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!

A new page started tonight

Let's try this again and make sure that the photo doesn't post sideways (grrr)! Please note that the above page isn't finished and has barely even been started! This is a teaser. I'll show the finished page soon!

It's been somewhat of a lazy day. I woke up very late (after staying up very, very late finishing up a book). Did some work. I set up a blog post on the new books coming out in early 2011 that I am super excited about (some of you probably got the early version in your google reader. The revised post with more commentary is set to air at 4 a.m. Sunday). I baked scones (chocolate chip for Tristan and I, cinnamon for David). I have no knead bread (that I prepped last night) ready for a late dinner (tomato soup and fresh bread). I cleaned up a bit. I puttered. I tore up magazines and books for collage (a pile for me, a pile for my students). I read blogs, facebook, twitter, bbc news, Al-jazeera English, and magazines. I watched Al-jazeera and bbc news for info on Wisconsin, Japan and Libya. I'll listen to Henry Rollins' show on kcrw. I'm listening to npr news now. I usually listen to pacifica/kpfk news during the week, but their weekend news programming is virtually nonexistent. I haven't showered yet (am still in pjs), but will do so soon and then put on clean pjs. I complained about daylight savings time (I like when it gets dark early. I am a total Autumn kinda gal.) We'll go for a walk. Later, we'll watch a film, maybe Saturday Night Live (love Bill Hader and the news with Seth Myers, the rest is usually eh). But, for right now, I'm collageing and working in my journal, thinking, pondering and processing.

Hi Kelly,
I'm wondering where you find some of your awesome images like the one for today's page. ;-)

Been working on my journal and writing in it. I'm actually getting a little obsessed. LOL

I found it in a free magazine in No CA!
I am always looking for images. The more you keep your eyes open and look, the easier it will get!

Yay to art journaling!! :)

Obsessed - moi? Toi??? Okay here is what this brings up for me. How do you operate so that you don't disturb the others in your domicile while you go about life? I think you can really speak to this as your space is small and the co-residents are BIG. Oh should this be a question for your new thing ASk me anything? Maybe I'll check that out later.
