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!

Happy Dance!


After working my *ahem* off this weekend, ALL of the ordered copies of Pieces of Me are bound, wrapped and IN THE MAIL! My handy post office mailing assistant Tristan and I spent some time at the post office taping up the packages (I ran through three rolls of tape last night) and adding postage stamps to each of the envelopes. They are on their way, folks. 

Creating a book like this has been a dream of mine for a very long time. I truly hope that everyone enjoys their copies as much as I enjoyed making them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wow that sounds like an very exciting project - you must be very tired after all that work over the weekend

I think that your journaling is truly unique and amazing - if only I had 'heard' of it years ago - I might be better at it than I am now!

I have got my neighbour to give me her old magazines - she said that she had just thrown a huge pile out last week and the dustbin has been emptied now! I think that I will put some notes through neighbours doors for their old magazines too. I am going to be hooked on journaling over the winter - Thanks to your wonderful courses.

Kelly, I received my copy of PIECES OF ME in today's mail, and I don't have the words to say how much I love it. Seriously beautiful, heartfelt, true, compelling, and powerful. That's the best I can do right now because I'm just blown away. You art speaks to me and I will cherish this book of love forever. Bless you and your creativity!
