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 over seventeen 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!

A Good Day, Indeed!


David and I started our day off at the Taschen store in Hollywood where we found the four books (that have been on our wishlists for awhile now) above on sale. Yay! I also bought a copy of Vidvinkel Magazine at Barnes and Noble to cut up. 

We also trekked to Taschen in Beverly Hills but (luckily) they didn't have anything else that we were looking for. Since I was in the neighborhood, I hit Paper Source where I found some adhesive book cloth for half off. I picked up a couple of rolls for my classes in Arizona next weekend.

From there we headed towards Artist and Craftsman on La Cienega. They have an excellent selection of handmade and decorative papers for EXCELLENT prices ($3-5/sheet.) I picked up papers for my classes at Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale next weekend. Hopefully my students will like them!


Next on the list was a trip to Nova Color for some gel medium (Nova Gel #207) for classes next weekend. 

Last but not least was a trip to Book Soup. Nothing new but it's always fun to look and I love that shop!

Last night we trekked out to a couple of our favorite haunts and found some new treasures (as well as Uppercase magazine coming in the mail-yay! It's already time for me to renew and I WILL be renewing as I love that magazine. In my small opinion, it's the BEST creativity magazine on the market.

When we got home, my mat board from Clearbags.com was waiting for me. Yay!

So this weekend will now be spent prepping all of the materials listed above for my Frenzy Stamper classes next weekend. I'm really looking forward to teaching there. It's always a lot of work to prep for a class but it's well worth it when I see the smiles on my students faces. I'm really looking forward to it!
