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!

11 January 2012 Journal Page

A short reminder that I have two classes coming up this weekend (Friday at Zinnia and Sunday at Stampin' From the Heart) please click here for more info. Don't forget that I'll be traveling up to Fremont in Northern CA as well as Scottsdale, AZ to teach classes in February. The Scottsdale classes are my only Arizona classes until August (Art Unraveled) so catch 'em while you can! More here.

I am busy this week working on my new classes which I will be debuting in No Ca and AZ next month. I'm very excited. I will also have a new post up some time this week on three new pens that I bought from Jetpens.com.

I have a pen tip! Of course, you have probably tried these but I just found one in my stash, used in my journal and LOVED it! And in case you haven't heard of them, thought I would share.
The Marvy Gel Reminisce Ballpoint Pen - hard to find online, I just ordered from the company all colors (including a white pen that I hope behaves like the black ink one I have). Very smooth and no skipping over paint!

Thanks for the heads up on the crafters workshop stencils. If I was buying anything this year I would pick up the aspen tress, peacock feathers and the cursive alphabet....

Thanks for your always informative and helpful links. Of course I could read about pens all day...then want to order them all...just a few days ago found several fountain pens that hadn't been out to play for years. I will clean them carefully. xo
