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 almost twenty years now. 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!

March 9, 2009 journal pages

I finished my journal last night...I'll be showing you the last of the pages over the next few
days. It's always a weird thing to end a journal and move on to another one. It's invigorating,
yet it's like saying goodbye to an old friend. Cliche, I know, but true. It is a very fulfilling feeling though to hold a finished book, made and filled by your own hands. The new journal I made yesterday is BIG. It's easy for me to work BIG and small sizes push me. I'm a big fan of 'mixing it up' and changing journal sizes every now and then. I really feel that it does give me a little kick in the pants every now and then.

On top of my huge pile of books right now is a book I read several years ago that my eyes happened to fall upon last night-
The Passion Dream Book by Whitney Otto. LOL, I always want to call it the Pillow Book for some reason I get that stuck in my head instead and people look at you kinda funny when it comes out of your mouth.

Audrey Niffenegger fans rejoice! Her new book comes out in September. The Time Traveler's Wife is, hands down, one of my most favorite books of all time. I. Can't. Wait.

I love your pages of course. I love this size and can't wait to see the new size you made.

I'm so excited about Audrey Niffenegger's new book. I just read The Time Traveler last year and loved it. So excited. Thanks for keeping us up to date about the cool books.

Bc you raved about The Time Travelers Wife on your blog a few months ago I picked it up off my bookshelf and read it - LOVED IT!!!! I had picked it up at a used book sale bc I was intrigued by the title and when I read what it was about, I was a little put off bc it just sounded weird but I'm so glad I read it and I'm recommending it to all my friends. Those characters just get into your head. I'm still thinking about Henry two months after I read it. Thanks for recommending it!
