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!

26 January 2013 Journal Page

The good news about the trip to the dentist is that I like my dentist (she's a fellow nerd who loves Batman and Star Trek. Yay!) The bad news is I have a bunch of cavities and other things that need to be done. I'm just happy that I was able to get an appointment and hopefully it will all get taken care of. Fingers crossed.

I am super excited about my Swatches class that is officially starting tomorrow. There's a bunch of material already up on the class site but I can't wait to see what folks start to do with the new material. It's always exciting to see how folks things. I know that I keep saying it but it's true! It's my favorite part of teaching!!

Lots of things on the To Do List this week. I'm prepping for my class on Saturday. I'm also working on a new and revised version of my Triptych book class. I'll be sharing that soon. I posted a teaser photo on Instagram but you can't tell what it is. Between all of that as well as my new online class work, and family stuff, I'm a busy, busy bee (in a good way!)

One quick comment on the page above, I don't love it. I'm okay with it but it's not one of my favorites. I love the coloring down the bottom and my journaling about my Dad but that's about it. I'm mentioning this to reinforce the fact that not all pages are going to be pretty and perfect (whatever that is.) It's okay to let a page go and to move on when you have pushed it as far as you can push. You've got a whole book to fill.

Strange thing is, I do like this journal page. To each their own. There are many more pages in the book, like you said. Can't wait for Swatches...gonna go check it out.

Dentists can be expensive. Interesting comment about a page. I have some I plan to work on ater but never do.

I need to go to the dentist myself and just keep putting it off until I feel I can handle it again. I have a huge fear of dentist. Sigh...
