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!

Fun Goodies from Paper Source

Having a great time teaching at Ink About It! I always look forward to my classes in Westford. It was nice to see some familiar faces as well as to be introduced to some new ones!

After class I drove to Dedham to meet my family. The eight (is enough) of us ate dinner at The Yard House. It was an insane two hour wait (with an extremely well behaved baby, I might add.) I'm not sure if I would go back. The food was okay but expensive (another Christmas present from my sister.)

David and I walked over to Paper Source. I had a gift certificate from my parents burning a hole in my pocket. You'll see what I bought in the above picture. I bought letterpress bits, ribbon, Martha foil glitter and a great book called, "I am Her" (more info here: http://www.live-inspired.com/I-Am-Her-P1000)

It's about eleven now and I have a long day ahead of me. I'm teaching from 10-5, have to drive to Braintree, unload, pack and pick up the boys to head to Tivoli, New York for a visit with David's Dad, my sister in law and nieces. Looking forward to it. Not looking forward to all of the driving but looking forward to the visit. That said, I'd rather drive than fly any day!

I'm not sure what we're doing on our anniversary (16 years, already??) on New Years Eve. I hope that whatever you do this weekend you wave goodbye to the old year and welcome the New Year with open arms.

Love the stash, what a beautiful book. I've added it to my list. You are far better than any of the magazines that I read that recommend books. I hope you have a great class with little traffic in between. Happy Anniversary to you both and I hope you have a wonderful New Year.
