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!

31 January 2011 Journal Page

Still stewing. Mum is the word until then. It is a delicate subject so the right words have to be said.

Got the news at the refrigerator is here (on premises but not in our apartment yet). Tomorrow they are removing the old one and hopefully, will be putting the new one in, too. Fingers crossed that there aren't any problems.

Some L.A. events-Grant Morrison is coming to Meltdown Comics again. I am so sad that I will have to miss this talk (I'll be on the road to teaching in Colorado). If you are in So Ca, you should go out of your way to go. Morrison is amazing and you always learn something new from him!

The Academy is starting their Summer of Silents, yes, all silent films accompanied by live music. I'm excited.

More tomorrow. The refrigerator guys are coming between 7 and 11. 7 a.m., really?

I respect that you are giving this careful thought. I would respect you if you didn't write anything at all about it. I see so many complicated sides to this whole potential conversation and I do not know that there is a black and white. Shades of gray all around.

No Kelly, not seven a.m. Ten fifty-nine a.m., after you were ready and waiting at seven. THAT is the way it works here in my little world!!! Enjoy that new fridge, whenever it arrives. And don't put the milk carton on the door, even if there is a slot for it there, because in that spot the constant opening and closing of the door can lower the temp enough to sour it quickly. Don't just stand there staring at the beauty. CLOSE THAT DOOR. Ha!

Wishes for cool food, cold drinks and ice!

6:57 a.m. Fridge guys said they would be here in 15 minutes. 7:07 a.m. they were knocking on the door. Our old fridge is gone and we're waiting for the new one that won't be here until later (supposedly it's here, it just has to be installed).

As far as my post, I can only write from my experiences and speak my truth. After 14 years of teaching (and a lot of it, teaching every weekend) and traveling to teach, I've been around the block a bit. My post's intent would not be to hurt or harm, just to make one stop and ponder. It's just another side of the story that we are collectively writing.

Hi Kelly:
I cannot believe Tristen is 14 already. My goodness where does time go?
I hope your fridge came by now since it is 1:40pm there. Do a little happy dance.
