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!

Lots o' links

I took this photo in Berkeley on 4th street. The colors stopped me in my tracks and I snapped this on the sly using my Fxcamera app on my droid x.

I have a few links that I've been meaning to share with you.

There's a six page interview with me in the new Pasticcio Quartz (#13).

One quick reminder that I have only a small handful of classes left in 2011. I'm teaching two more in So CA this month (including one this Sunday at Stampin from the Heart in L.A. and the other is at Zinnia in So Pasadena next Friday) as well as I have three days of classes in MA (more info here.) I hope to see you there!

Several folks have asked, I will NOT be ending registration for my new online class. You can sign up and access the class at any time. Once the information is on the site, the class is accessible to all students at any time. Download, save and print and you're set to go! I don't close class registration in any of my online classes. Special sale price until 12:01 a.m. (PST) on December 22, 2011.

Several folks have asked about the glue that I use and the best place to get it. My favorite glue stick is Coccoina in 40 gram size. A couple of weeks ago via a google search I found a great mail order source for it, Green Apple Supply! If you're like me and you order 10 or more at a time, this is a great deal. Granted, you can order any amount and even pick the size glue stick you want (10, 20 or 40 gram. I always get 40 gram). I ordered on Friday and had the glue sticks in hand on Monday. Customer service is top notch, too! The glue sticks last awhile before you need to reorder so just make sure that you store them away from the heater and always keep the lid capped tightly when not in use.

Tapeswell is having a 25% off sale (on your entire purchase) through the end of the year. Woo hoo! My favorite is this one.

Ginko Papers is also having a sale through December 20, 2011. 15% off all orders. Discount code is HOLIDAY. This is one of my favorites.

'Tis the season to be insanely busy. I'm working on several projects right now. I have a handful of in person classes left this year. I'm working like a loon on my new online class. I'm creating and writing class descriptions for 2012 (I'm hoping to have my Jan-June calendar up shortly. Please mark your calendars, I'll be in Fremont, CA Feb 10-12th and Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale Feb 17-19th. I am also hoping to have a big posting of journals for sale within the next week. I'll be posting daily but they may be short and sweet.

Happy Monday, folks, and thanks for stopping by

Not to sound like a glue sniffer, but are the glue sticks you mention the ones that smell like almonds? If so, I think I used them once. They were heavenly and much pricier than your source!!

Those are them!! Some folks say almonds (me), some say Jergens, etc... They smell awesome and they do the job (more importantly).

Congrats on the interview. Now I need to go shopping for the mag, or talk to Santa, I guess. And thanks for the link to my blog. I finally got the listings on etsy. Whew!

Fantastic interview Kelly. I already love Pasticcio and love this issue more with you in it.
