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!

Merry Almost Christmas!

I was going through some of my Dad's stuff last night and I found this picture. I thought that it was an appropriate one to post. There's a date on the side that says Feb 1961 so my guess is the picture is from Christmas 1960 in Roxbory, MA. I'll have to find out more about this photo! I know that Dad volunteered for the Boys and Girls Club but I'm not sure if this has anything to do with that. My Mom has the Manger in the back of the photo. It was built by my Dad's Uncle. I loved playing with it as a kid. (Though I didn't do anything like Mr. Bean did.) 

Not expecting tomorrow to be an easy day but I'm holding onto the good memories and the love that my family has for each other. All I want for Christmas (other than my Dad to be here) is to be with my family, swap stories about my Dad and listen to his Christmas CDs. I think that he would have appreciated that. 

I hope that wherever you are that you have the nicest of days. Thanks for stopping by. Merry Christmas.

Kelly, You need to relax and play the Christmas tunes your Dad loved. I agree that tomorrow will be hard, but I think your Dad would say, "Quit your blubbering and get to the Happy" if he were with you! Love you my friend, Smile!
