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!

The Space Between

I appreciate those of you who have sent emails about my unusual lack of blogging the last few days. Late Saturday night, I had to take David to the ER. He's been in the hospital since. The doctors are not 100% sure what's wrong with him. He has blood in his bladder. The doctors are saying there's a chance it could be cancer in his kidney OR a blood clot in his kidney. They did say IF it is cancer in the kidney that it is still very early. They want to wait a few days and see how he is doing before they do anything drastic like removing his kidney. So, we're in a bit of limbo at the moment. I haven't been home to do the work that I was planning on doing (making new journals and working on my new online class) and have spent my energy focused on my husband and our son. Kind thoughts and good juju are greatly appreciated at this time.

A short note to say that I am planning on teaching my in person classes this month. Some folks have asked how they could help. If you can't take an in person or online class, or buy collage sheets or journals, if you want to spread the word about my in person or online classes, I'd greatly appreciate it. I have classes scheduled this month for Escondido, Mar Vista and Arizona. Thanks again for any help or kind thougths. Everything is truly appreciated.
