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!

Kelly Paper Plea

Most of my readers know that I've been using 140 lb Wausau Exact Index paper for almost all of my journals and classes for many, many years (the exception is when I make my journals from found papers.) The Wausau Mills shut down earlier this year. I was dismayed and I've been trying to find a suitable substitute for the 140 Exact Index ever since. I have not been happy at all with any of the papers that I have tried. Papers that my local Kelly Paper insist are a suitable substitute, I find them to be far inferior to the 140 Exact Index. 

I'm asking that you consider taking a few minutes and email Kelly Paper (here) and ask that they consider carrying the 140 Neenah Brand Exact Index in both 8 1/2 x 11" and parent size sheets on a regular basis, NOT as a special order. I want customers to be able to walk into the store and pick up a ream of 8 1/2 x 11" or order ten sheets of the parent size sheets and have them available the next day. Kelly Paper is only offering the Neenah Paper 140 Exact Index now as a special order which means you have to order a CASE of paper (500 sheets of the parent size!) 

If you could pass this information along to any other artists who may be interested, I'd appreciate it. I've been told that the more people who email Kelly Paper directly, the better chance we have of being heard. Thanks for your help and your time!
