Life is art.
Hi. I'm Corey Marie.
I ♥ comic books, web design, video games, road trips, thrift stores and old books.
Don't be shy!
Ask me questions or just say hi. :3
RECYCLED ART JOURNALS
I make unique Art Journals featuring repurposed and rescued vintage book covers. Each journal is bound by hand and completely one-of-a-kind. Inside every Art Journal you’ll discover an inspiring mixture of colors, textures and patterns that coordinate with the cover: 100 hand-cut pages of vintage and modern paper, authentic vintage book pages and other ephemera.

this is the only thing i’ve ever really wanted. people laugh, but it’s true. what could be more beautiful?
I feel the exact same way. Imagine if we were surrounded by tiny memorial forests instead of cemeteries. Trees don’t last forever, but in reality, neither do carved stones. Maybe my tree could become pages of a book. :)
The last few minutes of this documentary contains some extremely powerful words from Maurice Sendak about life and what he chose to do with his. Profound and inspiring. (via box brown on fb: start at minute 36.)

It gets better, but I still have no idea what I’m doing.

Frye had never previously written any poetry, but the plight of a young German Jewish woman, Margaret Schwarzkopf, who was staying with her and her husband, inspired the poem. Margaret Schwarzkopf had been concerned about her mother, who was ill in Germany, but she had been warned not to return home because of increasing anti-Semitic unrest. When her mother died, the heartbroken young woman told Frye that she never had the chance to “stand by my mother’s grave and shed a tear”. Frye found herself inspired, composing a piece of verse, which she wrote on a brown paper shopping bag.
The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”
