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!

3 September 2011 Journal Page

It's only been a week now since Tristan started High School. Tristan seems to have taken to his new schedule very quickly. I'm all messed up. I'm trying to get myself on some sort of schedule but nothing has worked out yet. Hopefully I'll figure something out soon. It's definitely an odd adjustment to go from having your child home daily for two years to having him gone for seven hours a day, five days a week. Some Mothers would crave it. I'm on the other side of the fence. I like having my boy around but I know I have to let go.

I've always said that keeping a journal is a great way not only to try new things and to document life experience but also to dialogue with oneself. Don't be afraid to ask yourself questions and then answer them on the pages. Play wth using color as mood and emotion. Find images that represent you and how you are feeling. Be open and free on your journal pages and the pages may offer you guidance, clarity and a glimpse of yourself that you had previously been unaware of.
