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!

Bringing Home the Goods

Paper, transparencies, stencils and Staz-on ink pads from Scrapbook Territory on 4th Street in Berkeley


Three sheets of handmade paper, two rolls of washi tape and replacement nibs for Montana markers from Flax in San Francisco. Flax is always one of my favorite stores. LOVE the paper room and their selection of goodies.

 Twenty sheets at $1 each at Flax's paper sale (not worth the effort. I wish I had snapped a photo of it. It was a madhouse and mostly papers that I wasn't interested in. Lots of greeting cards, too. I would not recommend going out of your way to go to the paper sale.


I bought four Marc Davis postcards, two Mary Blair magnets and a bunch of postcards from the Walt Disney Museum

While there, I picked up a newspaper supplement on the Blair exhibit. I also bought three of the E-Ticket Magazine. Each one focuses on a specific ride at Disneyland: Pirates of the Caribbean, Disneyland's Ghost House and It's a Small World.

I can't recommend the Walt Disney Museum enough. I peeked into the Disney part of the museum and was astounded at the amount of material in there. If you go to the Mary Blair exhibit (I hope to have  a separate post on this), make sure that you go downstairs in the main building as there is more of her work downstairs. Also make sure you check out the Marc Davis exhibit. I am trying to figure out if I can get back up there before the Mary Blair exhibit closes in early September. You can easily spend all day there. My friends and I were at least two and a half hours at the Mary Blair exhibit and I could've spent longer.
