Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

Happy Mail In My Mailbox & My Inbox

Yesterday I discovered two pieces of Happy Mail in my mailbox.

The first was a box containing my 12x12 prints from Persnickety Prints. I just uploaded these last Friday and they've arrived already. This is my third order from Persnikety Prints and I have been very happy with the quality of the prints, the prices ($1.99 for a 12x12 print), and the quick service. The December overview page will go into my chronological album, and the other  prints will be cut into 6x12 sheets for my December 2010 mini-album.

Another package contained these scrapbooking goodies from Nic Howard. I was one of the random drawing prize winners during the Color! or is it Colour? workshop at BPC a couple of months ago. Watch for these items to appear on upcoming scrapbook layouts.


And there was a cute card from Nic - this card front just might make it onto a layout also.


And then today, I had a very exciting surprise in my email inbox: a note from Stacy Julian letting me know that she featured my 2010 Scrapbooking Revolution layout in her blog post about the 2011 LOM Workshop coming up this summer at BPC!

I hope all your mailboxes are filled with happiness this week!

All those years growing up you thought you didn't have a creative bone in your body. I always knew it was just a matter of time before you found something you loved enough to enjoy. Congrats!!!!!!!
