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!

Secret Stairs' Laurel & Hardy Music Box Loop

By the time you are reading this, I'll be heading home from an all night Dusk-To-Dawn Horrorthon at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. It's no secret that my family loves film (David's blog and Tristan's Youtube channel.) We have always said that we're very lucky to live in Hollyweird and that we try to take full advantage of it as much as possible.

For my birthday, David surprised me with a trip to Laurel & Hardy's famous Music Box Stairs in Silverlake. We started our trip at the Tropical Cafe (I can't wait to go back. It was finger licking delicious. Just so you don't make the same mistake that I did, the ketchup colored bottles are filled with hot sauce and not ketchup.)

Bellies full, we then started our walk to find the stairs. Here we are at the bottom about to head up (without the piano.) David is holding our guide, The Secret Stairs book


Along our walk, we stopped to take little breaks to take photos of cool sights like these:

 I'll censor what I said when I saw these:


When we hit what we thought was the top of this staircase only to discover that it continued across the street.

We ended our 2.5 mile, 705 step walk where we started by going down the Music Box Steps again and back into the Tropical Cafe for some dessert to take home.

We plan on doing more of the Secret Stairs walks in the near future.
