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: Collage Portland

For years I have been wanting to go to Collage in Portland. After class today, I trekked over there. It was well worth the visit.

Most of you know that the last year has been tough for my family. I have not done much shopping and it was soooo nice to find some of my favorite supplies. 

Collage is extremely well stocked and worth the trip. Afterwards, we went to The Grimm house. I am eager to do some more exploring while I am here.

You already know these are my favorite post now. That floral and script washi ������. I don't know who the cute little girl with the red bow is but I love her. Oh hell I love it all! I've got to get to the east coast just to shop at these stores you go to. So much fun! I'd love to tag along, be your assistant and student at the same time.
