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!

22 August 2010 journal page

I am crazy busy trying to get back into the swing of things. Piles of stuff everywhere after our trips to CO, Comic Con, AZ and MA. Mom is coming next weekend. I'm trying to handle my To Do list like I do my journal pages: do as much as I can in little increments. So, I work on my To Do NOW list and then when I have little extra moments in the day, I fill in the gaps with my odd jobs that need to get done. I also push myself to do a page a day even when life gets ultra busy. Journaling is my sanity and one of the must do things that keeps me grounded, sane and happy.

Blog Love:

Tipping my hat to Director Satoshi Kon, who died on August 24th at the age of 46 of pancreatic cancer. Here is a link to an English translation of his last blog post. If you haven't seen his films, you need to.

my grandmother had one of those dial phones- that sucker weighed like 15 pounds and ALL of us at some point had the phone drop onto our feet. That phone was a weapon!
