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!

School's Out for Summer

Now that you have that stuck in your head, I wanted to write a little note telling my 14 year old son, Happy Graduation, Tristan!!! Your Father and I are so very proud of you!!!!! It's hard to believe that you're going to be a High School Freshman next year. Preschool doesn't seem so long ago. We love you and you can always count on us to be there whenever you need us. *mwah*! Love, Your Embarrassing Mom

Tristan has been making a slew of Lego stop motion animated films which you can see here.

A short bit o'blog love today:
DIY tape!

Congrats to Tristan!!!! And you and David too. He's such a great teen and I really love his Lego videos, he's so talented. I know what you mean about the time passing so quickly. Love the link.

Congratulations, Tristan. High school will be over in about 3 minutes, too. And for your blog love...can you believe she cut out around the roses in the vintage wrapping paper? It is beautiful...I will admire it from afar. :D

Congratulations Tristan. Way to go. Now on to high school. Yay!
Your Lego videos are really cool. Keep up the good work..perhaps you will end up working for Legos(the company) and create all the time or be on their design team.
Lots to look forward to.
Thank you for sharing.
