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.

January Review - February Preview
*14 layouts completed: three were 2-page layouts and two were digital, most were 12x12 in size, however there was one 8 1/2 x 11 and one 8x8
*1 mini-album completed - December 2010
*11 cards completed
Here's the last layout for the month that I completed earlier today. It's a two-page layout and all the materials are from a 2007 Stampin' Up Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' kit that I picked up for a couple of dollars at a flea market back in December. The January 13 weekly challenge in the Library of Memories Community was to browse through our oldest storage binder and clean out photos. I'm working on my early 2008 storage binder; it's not the oldest datewise but it was the first storage binder I filled up when I began the LOM system last year. The inspiration for this layout came from this post at Get It Scrapped!
*I'll be continuing my Healthy Living Weekly Posts on Fridays and will publish a Sunday Musings post most weeks.
*I am excited to once again have a spot as a Guest Designer for an upcoming Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes sketch challenge - watch for that post on February 10.
*I'll be participating in the BPC workshop Embrace Imperfection. (There's still time to sign up for this FREE two-week workshop taught by Karen Grunberg.)
*I hope to complete each week's LOM Community challenge.
Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you again in February!
