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!

20 January 2010 journal page

Teaching my "Bloom" class this Saturday at Zinnia. The class is a go and I hope to see YOU there! Please phone the store to sign up 626 441 2181. Sample is in the store. Photos here.


Do you know about Amazon's "Vine Program"? Hmm...think twice before you choose a book based on an Amazon "customer" review. They might not be consumers, but folks who are getting paid in books. Another review of the program here.

I've always wondered about those reviews, Kelly. It's too bad we can't believe them now.

All of your pages are just spectacular! Wish I was joining my friends, Lori, Toni and Rita in Phoenix for your workshop!!!

Sandy said...

Your pages just keep getting better and better. I could loose myself in your blog photos.

I didn't know about Amazon but will be leary now and I usually don't pay attention to them most of the time, I read what the book's about and if I like it I'll get it.

Your class looks like so much fun. I hope you and the students have a blast.

i bought an unknown book based on a review once -- and it was terrible -- nothing like the review at all!!! It was poorly written and was incestuous and made me feel creepy-dirty just by reading it. I won't do that again :)

This is really nothing new, review sites usually get so many ARCs in exchange for reviews. But the reviews are can be good or bad. Romantic Times is a whole magazine dedicated to romance novel reviews and they get them way in advance. It is only a problem if they are expected to write good reviews. If they are giving their honest opinion then good for them getting it free.

I do not buy books unless I can see them in person.Disappointing about those reviews,isn't?
