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!

2009 books to look forward to...

Here's a list of new books coming out in 2009! The first one is out right now!! Click on the book cover for a link!

Lynda's Ernie Pook Comeek is also due out this year!

Also due out in September, though there isn't a photo yet on amazon is Eddie Campbell's Alec: The Years Have Pants

So far, it looks like it's a great year for new books! *fingers crossed*
that we'll all have money to buy them and bookstores to buy them at!

It looks like my shopping cart at Amazon is going to get even bigger than it already is! I have always loved the Desiderius Erasmus quote. It's SO perfect! Bibliophiles Unite!!!!

That Journal bliss book looks pretty cool - just from the cover - oh more books to buy!

If I pre-order it - then it's not really like I'm spending money now... it's being spent in the future, right?

Hey Kelly,
It's an honor to be on your list of recommended books!
Also, I remember very fondly your taped book class. It was awesome, and with all these tapes out there I should make tons of more books.
