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.

Christmas Begins In July at Scrap Your Life

I don't know about you, but it's hard to think about Christmas when the temperatures are striving to reach at least 100 degrees (F) every day here in Texas. However, we all know that it will creep up on us if we aren't prepared. With that thought in mind, Cheryl and Robin over at Scrap Your Life have started a series of FREE CLASSES featuring crafty gift giving solutions. There are two free classes each month.

Scrap Your Life

This month Cheryl shared a great idea for making a Hybrid Recipe Book  and Robin will be sharing an idea for creating 2013 Gift Calendars. I really like the way Cheryl used an old cardboard box to make her recipe book pages, and I'm looking forward to seeing Robin's calendar ideas as that class starts today!

All you have to do to join these free classes is sign up at the Scrap Your Life site and request membership in the class you are interested in. It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts (despite the heat), especially if you are planning to give handmade gifts!

I wish I could be this far ahead and think about Christmas now, but it's hard when it's so hot. I need to get past summer before I can think about gifts! LOL. :)
