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!

16 January 2013 Journal Page


There's a gap in the dates of this journal. During that time, I was working in my "A Beautiful Necessity" journal. I have a hard time bopping around from journal to journal so I tend to stay working in one book at a time. However, I was traveling and going to be walking a lot so I needed something that wasn't a heavy hardcover. While this is a small book, it was still too heavy (especially with everything else that I would be carrying.) I always find it fascinating how folks work. I tend to work page by page in one book at a time. I find it disconcerting if I bop around and don't work this way. I also date each and every page (along with the weather.) It's the only time in my life where things have to be. just. so. It's all about finding what works best for you.

Busy day today. Prepping for my Connections class at Stampin from the Heart tomorrow. Board and paper have to be cut. Handouts need to be printed. Also working on my new online class, Swatches. I scanned over 70 photos yesterday which now have to be put into handout form. Busy! Busy! No complaints here! Just busyness! :)
