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!

Visiting New Orleans



Mom and I walked the French Quarter area of New Orleans. We mostly wandered the streets taking photos and sticking our noses into a handful of galleries. There was so much to take in. Sights. Sounds. Smells. Lots of emotion as I was there. Lots to think about...

There was so much color (I went gaga over the different colored homes.) Here are just some of the many things that we experienced in our three hour side trip to New Orleans.
 
 
These ladies were rocking it. I left most of my singles and fives with various street musicians around town. I wish that more of them had CD's and business cards available but it is what it is...
I absolutely loved the people that I met there. So many artists (painters, musicians and more.) So much creativity, passion and inspiration in one area.
This. This is my dream house. The people who live here don't know but they are taking care of it for me... (though in all honesty, the humidity would probably kill me.)
 
It was definitely a memorable experience and a city that is calling my name to come back. I have one more post about a gallery that we visited to share.

Have you been to New Orleans? What are your favorite places and things to do/see/eat/experience there? I'd love to figure out how to teach somewhere there...

If you missed it, here's my post from yesterday about my Visit to Lucky Rose Gallery in New Orleans.

Enjoyed all your photos! Thanks! I've been to New Orleans - really enjoyed the music scene. There used to be a scrapbooking shop in a suburb, Metairie. I just tried locating them - it looks as if they are no longer in business. If I hear of any places I'll let you know.
