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!

I spent over a month making David the book that you see above. Since it was a surprise I had to wait until after his birthday to share it here with you as he reads my blog. I love that when I make him something special and personal, he really appreciates and loves the gift. 

For those of you who have asked, here's a link to my son Tristan's LEGO videos. His newest one is Challenge of the Superfriends. Some may not be kid friendly (language) but they are really well done and he spends a lot of time and effort on making them.

My busy time of year is in full swing. I'm spending today prepping for my two classes this weekend in Westlake Village and Los Angeles (more info here.) I won't be teaching again locally for over a month so catch the classes while you can!  

I hope that your weekend is a great one!
