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!

Too much doubt, for sure, Kelly. On a side note, want to know something else that really bothers me? Out of all my contacts on Facebook (family, friends and lots of artsy folks) YOU and me are the only ones I saw posting anything about the whole tragedy! That infuriates me, too. Do people just not care anymore? Have we, as a society, really gotten to the point where a life means so little that mosty can turn a blind eye to something so horrific happening before their faces?

Folks might want to remember the poem/speech by Martin Niemoller:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Sorry...I'm just so...I don't even have a word for it.

I was there too Barb, mainly on Twitter. I'd had a terrible day was in bed and when i got online and saw Kelly's post I started watching and tweeting and talking. I posted on Kelly's page on Fb because that's who I saw talking about it.

I was so sad, mad, angry, shocked, just so much I couldn't sleep last night. To me the citizens in our country are now like walking robots. They do as they're told and that way everyone is happy. I admit I didn't know much of the entire story, the previous stays of execution but after watching Democracy Now I do. Are people too lazy to listen? To work harder to find out? Where was President Obama in all of this? I just don't get it at all.
