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!

Shopping Adventures in No CA

I had a nice time shopping in San Francisco and Berkeley yesterday. Here are my treasures.

I hit Flax, Maido, Kinokuniya, the Caning Shop, Scrapbook Territory, Castle in the Air, the book and toy stores on 4th Street, Paper Source, Pegasus Books and Moe's. Stuff for classes. Stuff for me. I love just walking down the streets of Berkeley as well as seeing the fog roll into San Francisco.

Off to teach in Fremont! Have a great weekend!

Hi Kelly! Those papers look especially inviting...! I just bought the lotus stencil, too. Have fun teaching! Kath

sounds like QUITE the neighborhood for quality "stash-building!"

drooling over the handmade papers and also wondering who makes the round boxes (alpha stamps?)

I am so jealous...sounds like an awesome shopping trip!! I am going to have to start checking out Nashville for some hidden gems for shopping for art goodies. Meanwhile, I will live vicariously through your shopping adventures. I don't mind on-line shopping but there's nothing like instant gratification (and PayPal cut me off again--they thought I was getting hacked again) Probably was me screwing up on my new password!!

Vicki, Creative Cafe makes them. I thought they were cool until I opened them. YOU HAVE TO ASSEMBLE THEM! I wish I had known that as I wouldn't have bought them. :(
