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!

One Year Ago...

2016 was a very long year for a lot of people including my family. I first wrote about the start of it here. While we are still on our journey (David had his first CT scan of 2017 today), I am grateful for many things. Grateful to his doctors, nurses and health care providers who have been taking care of him since February 6, 2016. Grateful that we have insurance and that he was (and is) able to go to the doctors and get the care and medicine that he needs. Grateful to my friend, Suzi Babbin Finer for starting a Go Fund Me page for my family last year and to every single person who contributed or helped to pass along the information, we would not have survived without YOU, so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. Grateful to my students and online friends who took my classes, bought my art and helped to support us when we needed it most. Grateful to our family and friends who were there when we needed them. So again, THANK YOU. We love you. We appreciate you. I'm off to hug my husband for the gazillionth time today. We still have a long road ahead but I am full of gratitude and love for those of you who have held our hands and our hearts along the way.
