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

Last month I was the lucky recipient of several pieces of happy mail. First, I won a set of stamps on Becky's blog, however when the packaged arrived I discovered not only the stamp set but a little bundle of scrappy goodies and a handmade card from Becky. Thanks Becky!

I've mentioned previously that my sister and I are sharing a book each month this year. In the last package she sent me, I received a book plus a little bundle of scrapping goodies and new photos to scrap!

And a total surprise several weeks ago was this lovely postcard that Mel made from one of her own photos.

Have you found any happy mail in your box lately?

These are such lovely spring colours and both sets of pretty things look as if they will coordinate nicely. Isn't Happy Mail the best?
