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!

June 19 journal pages

I also wanted to mention some books that I saw at the bookstore yesterday. Now, any time I've mentioned a book on this blog, it doesn't mean that I ran out and bought it. It doesn't mean I'm endorsing it. It doesn't mean I will ever even buy it. All it means is that I'm pointing out new books for your information. Don't forget your local library and the use of inter-library loan.

Crafter's Devotional: 365 Days of Tips Tricks and Techniques for Unlocking Your Creative Spirit-interesting book with some good ideas. The downside is lots of oart that I have seen published elsewhere already.

Casa No Name Deborah Tuberville-this one is on my "I have to go back and look at it again list"

Paul Smith: You Can Find Inspiration in Everything *-I'm glad they re-released this in an affordable version. It's been out of print and extremely expensive.

Re-Bound: Creating Handmade Books from Recycled and Repurposed Materials -
Jeannine Stein

Jeannine was one of my students a few years ago. I'm very excited to see this book!! Congrats, Jeannine. It looks top notch and I love the diversity in the book. Soo many neat ideas in this one. If you love bookbinding, make sure you check out this book! I have quite a few friends in this one including Andrew, Judi and several others. You guys did a fab job-kudos!!! Damn good looking book!

I wasn't going to order one of these, but the lure and the soft whisperings of the paper...the voices in my head made me do it! ;) Seriously, check out The Found Paper Journal here. I found it via Book By Its Cover. It arrived before I could blink!
