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

PSA on Pilot's Latte and Sweets Pens -Sweets have been discontinued

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but when I went to link to the Sweets pen set on Jetpens the other day, only individual colors came up. Odd as they always sold them in sets as well. I posted on their facebook wall and sadly found out that the Sweets pens were discontinued in August.

The good news is that the Lattes are still being made.

The other good news is that as of the time that I'm writing up this post, there are still some Sweet pens left.

Here are the Sweets pens in order as to how they are shown on the Jetpens website:
Apple Green
Blueberry Lavender
Cherry Pink
Grape Purple
Mango Orange
Mint Green
Peach Orange (out of stock already)
Soda Blue
Strawberry Pink
Here are the Latte Pastels also in order as to how they are shown on the Jetpens website (remember, the Latte Pastels were NOT discontinued, only the SWEETS series):

Mauve Purple
Soft Blue
Please note that BOTH the sweets and the lattes sets have a white pen. There is no difference between the two white pens. I did not show the white pen in any of my photos. I LOVE it. It's a great white pen that writes clear but DRIES WHITE.

Here is a side by side color comparison. The Sweets are on the left and the Lattes are on the right.

It's funny that they label the Pilot Lattes as the "Pastels" when the colors are a tad darker than some of the Sweets. The lightest sweets are the apple green, blueberry lavender, soda blue and strawberry pink. I just stocked up on my favorite colors in the Sweets series: apple green, cherry pink, grape purple, mango orange, mint green, and strawberry pink. Sadly, they were already out of the peach orange. Yes, I will be hoarding these with the pens tightly capped and stored flat.

The colors are completely different than other manufacturer's gel pens, too.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, both the Latte and Sweets pens have been discontinued.
