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 more than twenty years. 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!

Family and an Early Birthday

My family threw a (total!) surprise birthday party for me yesterday. My cousin Ken and his family graciously hosted (and they know how to host the best parties!) Mom, Tristan, Jack and I pulled into the driveway where everyone was sitting under tents. I said, "Mom!!! Why are you pulling into the driveway?! Everyone else is parked on the street!!!" She said, "Surprise! This is for you!" I had no clue. My 40th birthday isn't until October. My cousin Kate gave me permission to start celebrating now.

I had a great time seeing my family (we were missing a few people and it wasn't the same without them. You know who you are and how much we all love you.) I'm thankful to my mom, Erin, Marc, the Fallons for doing this and everyone who attended or sent love my way. *Thank you.*
