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!

2 February 2015 Journal Page

I took Tristan for his permit test today. He passed and is eager to start his on the road driving tests (thanks, Nana, for the AAA driving school lessons for him!) 

I spent all afternoon reading Nina George's The Little Paris Bookshop. I'm halfway through and I can't put it down. I love books about how books weave themselves into our daily lives. In my home, books are such an important part of our everyday life. I can't imagine being without them. 

Lost in a book is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and such a rare treat (as I'm usually working and do most of my reading at night.) I'm thinking of starting more of my mornings with books (as opposed to the internet.) I have stacks of them around my bed waiting for me. Worlds and ideas to discover and ponder. What a lovely way to start the day.
