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!

November 12 journal page

You know you're at the used bookstore a lot when the guys at the register comment that you're "finally leaving" and "Why so soon?" telling you that they just bought over 500 books that you need to check out. One quips, "Don't worry, they'll be back tomorrow."

If you're in L.A., you need to go to my favorite used bookstore- The Iliad. It's a rare occasion that I leave without buying anything. That store is dangerous! Dangerous, I tell you! We've been going there for several years now. We followed them from their old location to their ever expanding and delicious new location. Be prepared to spend some time and a couple of bucks browsing their shelves. Did I mention that they have couches, too? Sit and peruse your selections before buying. Try to get out without spending at least an hour and a couple of bucks. They're open late too, which is a big plus!


Who out there has a Polaroid Pogo? What do you think? Is there anything else (hand held, small, portable) on the market like it? Would you recommend it? Thanks!

That looks like a fun camera... here are a couple of links to two other brands offering these.

I have a Pogo. It was an impulse buy, and I definitely like the idea of using it for my journal. There has been a problem with the photo papers having an expiration date (and being a little expensive) although the last time I checked the price (on Amazon) it had come down. It is small compact and easy to use. For me, its not a must have, but nice to have.

I love my Pogo! I had wanted one since I saw it in action in January and bought one about a month ago since the prices have come down. It's so easy to add pictures to my journals now because a) it's easy to print and b) the paper has an adhesive back. Two weeks ago I got flowers from a friend, and I took close-up pictures of the flowers, printed them with Pogo and then made an accordian fold thank you card with the prints. The friend was impressed. I'm hoping for more flowers! :)

I've only heard good things about the POGO. Catherine Witherell loves hers. I have asked for one for Christmas. We'll see if anyone spoils me :) (just the printer -- I love my camperas too much to give them up)

I love my Pogo for my journals, so easy to use. I got a super great buy on E-bay. Happy Thanksgiving Kelly!
