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!

Today's Score

Tristan, my Mom, Jack (my 1 year old nephew) and I trekked out to Concord, MA today. Yes, Thoreau and Walden Woods fame but also home to two of my most favorite antique shops:

Thoreauly Antiques

Nesting On Main

(The cooking/kitchen ware shop is awesome, as well!)

I managed to find some goodies (several old rubber stamps, the labels AND tickets to the Neponset Drive-in Theatre. I remember seeing Lady and the Tramp there as a kid in my pjs with paper bag popcorn!) I love walking and driving through the area as well. There's so much GREEN and so many trees, it just makes me happy. Then you start thinking about the writers, artists and the history of the area. So much history. So many stories to tell.

On the way back, we stopped in Dedham to bring my Dad dinner. By coincidence, there is a Paper Source right there. They just so happened to have the pink smash book I wanted. It was more expensive at Paper Source than at Ink About It (love the Mom and Pops) but I splurged any way. I didn't like the smash book tape so I passed on that. I did pick up a pack of tabs.

New York tomorrow, baby! Can't wait! There's still room in the classes this weekend. I hope to see YOU!
