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!

More journal swap pages

My pages:
Kara's pages:
One thing that I've often told my students is that changing the size of the journal really does help to push you. Working small is difficult for me (working big is easy), so working in a moleskine size journal pushes and prods me and gives me the kick I need every now and then. It's like problem solving and learning how to approach something from a different angle! It truly works for me. I love making ALL of my journals and book forms in different sizes and stitches. It's that little extra kick in the pants...

My online class is in full swing! It's nice to be able to sit back, relax and wait to see what my students are concocting!

I'm teaching a full class at Zinnia this Saturday, my Swatches book. There is a wait list, but if you are interested in the class, you can call (or email me) about getting on the wait list and I'll see about adding another class very soon!
