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.

Blog Every Day In May - Me On Monday

For many years now, Mondays have been my day to do the laundry (yes, I only do laundry one day a week), change the sheets, pay the bills, and process any pending paperwork. It's also the day that sets the tone for my week. If I accomplish my basic tasks on Monday, the rest of my week typically goes smoothly.

I've enjoyed Sian's Me On Monday posts over the past year as she shares about the weekend and waves to us each Monday, so today I'm waving back and sharing a little about me this Monday.

As I say goodbye to a fabulous weekend . . .  Mama and Thayer joined me for an all-day crop to celebrate (inter)National Scrapbook Day on Saturday, and Robbie and I caught a Sunday showing of the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie.

I'm saying hello to . . . completing my Monday chores quickly so I can get back to creating pages for the firefighter retirement album project that I'm delivering on Friday so I can begin work on the samples for my next class at Scrappin' Goodtime (Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More!) so that everything will be all ready before our road trip later this month so that I can check another item off my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list.

What are you saying Hello to this Monday?

Today I'm linking up with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May. Click here to join in!

I'm lucky if I can get away with one load of laundry a day! I hope you got all your tasks done so you could move on to the FUN stuff!
