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!

11 September 2011 Journal Page

A quick reminder that I am teaching a NEW class this Saturday at Zinnia called Passionate Declarations. It is a square journal (quick and easy stitch, I promise) filled with luscious pages (think bookmaking + collage + mixed media + art journaling = lots of fun!). More information (including class description and a slide show) can be found here. To sign up please contact the store asap!

Some short but sweet blog love:
Drawn and Quarterly have the BEST blog posts (especially when they travel. There! I said it!) in this post they visit Tove Jansson's studio (yes, the Tove of Moomin fame!). The studio/apartment has been untouched since her death with the exception of a few paint touch-ups. Inspiring!
Theo's collaborative tribute piece to Dylan Williams.
Pixie Campbell
Lots of yummy looking bread recipes that I hope to be trying very soon!

And yes, I now want to collect every Sophie Blackall book ever published. Visit her lovely blog here.

A quote from Helen Keller to leave you with, "Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained."

Yeah!....I've just been reading Sophie's MISSED CONNECTIONS. It's adorable and fun, like Sophie.
Thanks for giving us the chance to "meet" her. I do think that you and I may be Book-Mates. Whatever THAT may be....
