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!

OMG you are so creative that it is insane. I do have a question though. Do you buy premade books and just make the pages? Or do you make the covers and everything too and bind it yourself? And if you do the binding how do you do it? (unless its a secret then I totally respect that.) ^_^

Thanks for the kind words...
I make the journals all from scratch. There are TONS of different bindings-seriously, it depends on what you want to do. It's not a secret how to do it. I do include one of the most basic and simplest ones with my online class. I have a very hard time working in a store bought journal. I have to have made it myself.
Bookbinding books I recommend-Cover to Cover Shereen LaPlantz. The BIBLE of bookbinding. Also anything by Alisa Golden or Keith Smith. Your local library should have them or should be able to order them. I hope this helps.
I'm in Scottsdale this weekend, come take a class-lol ;)
