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!

4 September 2011 Journal Page

The weekend is here!

A small reminder that I'm teaching my La Petite Muse class THIS Sunday at Stampin From The Heart. I hope to see YOU there!

Did you know that Jetpens.com is having a contest? Today is the last day to enter. More info here.

I haven't had any Blog Love in a long time, so I thought I'd post some for the weekend:
How to Survive Late Summer Heat
Thanks to Lynne, I must have the book she mentions here.
Speaking of must have books...
Marjane Satrapi has a new book coming out! If you don't know who she is, head to your local library and look for Persepolis (get the comics and then rent the dvd.)
DIY tea bags
I want to bake this.
I want to eat this.
Send more Love Letters!
The Altered Page is hosting an Open Art Call!

Remembering Dylan Williams:

A week ago the comics world suffered a great loss. Dylan Williams of Sparkplug Comics passed away. Some of you may remember me mentioning Sparkplug a few times on this blog. They published and distributed some of my family's most favorite comics. We looked forward to seeing them at San Diego Comic Con where we'd drop quite a few pennies at their booth (after having Dylan or Austin English recommend additional titles.) They're still taking and filling orders (please be patient with them at this most difficult time as they are doing the best they can.)
