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!

A Page that I am Not Happy With, but that's Okay...

I feel like I could have written pages and pages with this journal page. I feel like I didn't say and express what I wanted to, fully and honestly.

Yet, for the time being, I'm okay with that. I'm not going to spend time beating myself up over this page. I'll ponder it-thinking about what I like and what I don't like. I'll see if I can add to it, but for now, I'm okay with it and I'm ready to move onto another page.

I love your page. I've always felt this way too even though I've always had a lot of friends. I've always felt like most of them didn't understand me. And like you I feel complete when I with my husband. I think we all feel like that at some point.

Beautiful page--and was moved by your love for your husband. Thank you for sharing;seeing your page inspired me to work on my journal. Any tips for meeting a soul mate? (forgive this question for being off topic...) Your art work is awesome, and your judgement in men
and love also clearly excels.
On a different note.....MT tape is killing me, and I've bought practically every color/design. But,
I am now a card carrying tape whore (thanks to you), and so frustrated MT tape doesn't seem to issue new styles often. Any news on the MT tape front from your end? My Tim Holtz tapes are have also pulled up from my paper and acrylic surfaces. Did he ever write you back about the adhesive snafoo? Thanks

Hi Alex,

No word on the Tim tape. MT comes out with tapes but they are often hard to find. I order from Washimatta. If she can get it, she will! Another company that makes the tapes is Marks, they are fun, too. I buy that from washimatta and Ginko Papers.

David and I were penpals. We met through a Tim Burton fanzine in 1994. I was in Boston, he was in L.A. Summer of 1995, something clicked and we both knew we were in love. I turned 21 that October and all I wanted was to go to L.A. to meet him. So, Christmas Day, 1995, I stepped off the plane and into a big hug. He proposed 8 hours later. We were married a week later. We both love books, movies, art and pizza (lol). We talk about things and have similar views on the world. We don't argue much, if we do, we sort it out. I wish I could be of more help, but that's my story. I would say to think of your passions and see if you can use those interests to find someone of interest. :) Friendship came first with us.

Thanks for the kind words!

Im happy with your page, as it made me feel not alone, when most of the time I do. I too often feel misunderstood and too deep! I had come to the conclusion that it was a scorpio thing. They say were dark and brooding. I say I am sensitive and want to be heard! Thanks for sharing your thoughts it made me feel connected and understood! Hope to see you sunday ;)
