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.

June Review - July Preview
*2 tag mini-albums - Paige & Laurie's 2011 Summer Visit
(I'll share these soon!)
*1 Photo Album Scrapbook - Summer Trips 2001
(I'll share this soon, too!)
*3 flower topiaries
*1 altered clipboard
During June, I was also busy coaching in the Finding Photo Freedom workshop, and I participated in the Familyx12 Blog Hop, the Lighten Up Blog Hop, Sian's Storytelling Sunday, and Shimelle's Ten on the Tenth.
*create cards for July & August
*create June yellow & July red, white & blue layouts to play along with Brenda's quilting
*continue coaching in the Finding Photo Freedom workshop
*participate in The Mother LOAD workshop
As you can see from the list above, I'm a little behind on some of the things I wanted to complete in June (July cards & yellow layouts), however I'm looking forward to getting in some scrapping over the next few weeks and am planning to complete those items anyway (better late than never, right?).
One of the projects that I was thrilled to complete this past month was a Photo Album Scrapbook of the trips I took in the summer of 2001. I used the same type photo album as the ones I used for Pun'kin's 2007-2010 Visits and Paige & Laurie's 2008-2010 Visits. All three of these albums reside in the Guest Room where they were thoroughly perused over the past three weeks (we had guests 15 of the past 21 days!).
