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!

Bringing Home the Goods: Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in Lake Worth, Florida


Above are the new supplies that I bought at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps when I taught there last weekend. I was excited to see some of my favorite Posca paint markers in an extra fine tip size (yay! These were previously only available in medium tip and larger sizes.) I couldn't resist the pretty roll of washi tape. I debated about the scissors but thought they might be easier for times when I'm on the go since my favorite travel scissors were taken at a government building a couple of years ago (rounded kid scissors that I bought from Jetpens eons ago. I had been flying with them for years and didn't know you couldn't take them into a government building. They confiscated them and weren't very nice about it. Alas, the pair were discontinued by Jetpens and I don't know who made them.) I have debated about a Traveler's Journal for *years* but I have something very specific that I want to use it for. I'll share more once I get it started...

A quick heads up, I'm giving the final count to my printer on Monday night for my latest self published offering. This will be the ONLY time that I offer this publication. I'll have a little teaser video of what my test copy looks like on my Instagram feed tomorrow. The print shop made me a test copy on regular copy paper to make sure the pages lined up right (he had to repaginate the whole book.) I am very excited to have the finished 120 matte printed copies in my hands. After the shop is done printing them, my next step is scoring and folding them page by page. Then I'll bind each one with a pamphlet stitch. Before I package them up for mailing, I'll sign and number each one (see why it's a one time deal?!) Each book is created with love from me to you. Interested? You can order one here.
