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!

17 July 2011 Journal Page

One more sleep before Comic Con!!! I'm all goofy and excited! I'm one big goofy fan girl (a quiet fan girl). I just found out that John Cusack is doing a signing on Friday. It's lottery only so I'm trying to figure out how I can get a ticket. I promise not to geek out too much, but I will be posting pictures!!

Last night at The Academy, I won a book on Mary Pickford written by Kevin Brownlow. I knew that the day I picked a strapless dress to wear (you know all those 70's style maxi dresses that are back in style) would be when my name was called. I had to go down and up onto the stage to pick it up. I was scared shit that I was going to trip on it and not fall on my face but fall out of it. I am a well known klutz. Thankfully, I made it to the stage and back to my seat in one piece. We saw "The Big Parade" and it was amazing. I'd never seen it before and I really loved it. It's the second King Vidor film I've seen (the first one was "The Crowd") and I would highly recommend both films. They also screened a Baby Peggy film (I'd never seen any of her films). Loved it. Very cute and I would've loved a dog like that growing up!

The above pages were started in Fremont. I'll show you the finished pages soon.

I'll be posting daily from Con. I may be on the slow side answering email, but I will respond as soon as possible.

One more sleep! I love it. We say that here too, because my G.daughter started it 15 years ago, and hasn't outgrown it, thankfully. I've never been to Comic Con...but love seeing it through your eyes. Ditto on the John Cusack..x0x0

Congratulation! I don't think you are a klutz at all. I am so glad your father is doing well, Kelly. Hugs,
