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!

19 September 2010 journal page

Keeping an eye out for this book.
Update: I was told by two blog readers (thank you both!) that the new Lark publication that I mention in the link above, Lark Studio Series: Handmade Books is not a new publication. Instead it is a smaller, more condensed version of their 500 Handmade Books publication that was published in 2008. I already own 500 Handmade Books and I love it. It's one of my favorites. I really wish publishers would not reprint work like they do, without alerting the public that the content has already previously been published. So many publishers do it again and again, taking a book (or a series of books), changing the packaging, the name of the book, etc... and market it as a "new" book. Not cool. I'll keep an eye out for the book, but I won't be buying it.

Lovely work - as always.

Just a heads up on that little handmade book book - if you already own the larger Lark book on handmade books, you have everything in the little bitty one (it's only 5x5").

Making a skirt is just as easy as making a scarf which is just as easy as sewing a journal cover. Honestly! Go for it :)
