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!

My Tape Order Arrived

Most of you know that I'm addicted to washi paper tape.

http://washimatta.wordpress.com/

Washimatta is one of my most favorite people to order tape from. I call Karen my "tape sugar mama" because if there's tape out there, and she can get it, watch out wallet!

Seriously folks, she is top notch! If an order is going to be late, she emails you. Once she's shipped an order, she emails you. As a customer, you are always in the know! Karen also knows how to carefully package items for overseas shipping. I love it! I can't rave enough about washimatta!

I don't work for anyone (but myself) and the products that I occasionally recommend are ones that I have to LOVE and use a lot! I also don't have any advertisers on my blog. If I post about something, it's because I went out,bought it and LOVED it so much I thought I should share the information. I'm actually very, very picky about what I buy (especially on a budget). Most of the goodies get used not only by myself, but by my students. I prefer to be selective in my purchases as it allows me to save up and pick the best supplies (and tools) for my students.

I apologize for getting anyone into any trouble with the information contained within post. ;)

Enabler! *laughs* Actually thanks for the link. I found some tape I'd seen elsewhere (someone had used it in a mag or something) and she had it. It's on it's way to me now!

I am assuming she's in Japan...is she okay?

They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into. I say, let them shop. (my son is a huge AIRPLANE fan)

Kelly, I found her shop from your blog site and LOVE it.
Yes, you have gotten me into real trouble here. I've made a few orders and am developing quite a collection, lol.
Ripping, tearing, gluing and taping! Life is good......

Book in book out policy, now tape out, tape in. I see a pattern here. I need to institute an out plan. Why no polka dot tape?

Kelly Kilmer said...

No, the tape that went out was doubles or triples that I had...
there are 3 rolls of polls dot tape in the picture-green, brown and yellow. ;)

Count me in as another new member of the Karen/Washimatta "fan club." I have peeked at your tape stash a bunch of times and finally broke down! Geez, I should've mentioned your NAME ::smacks head::

OMG... yes, it's already an addiction. Going to take some pics of my first foray into tape, from 4 sources, 1 of them non-traditional (best kind) and blog about it!
