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 - Thoughts On Blogging Every Day
As we're closing in on the end of the month, I have to admit that I was also reminded that it takes time and effort to produce blog posts on a daily basis. I found the prompts to be FUN as well as a little challenging at times. If you've been following along, you'll know that I occasionally adapted the prompt to make it work for me. (Or I simply threw in something random, like these gift tags and card I created as samples for my upcoming Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More class at Scrappin' Goodtime!)
Another challenge for me this month was the fact that we had ten days of travel planned! I typically have my computer with me when we travel, and often take time to blog or read and comment on blogs in the evenings. However, my philosophy is that vacation is for taking a break and having FUN and enjoying life as it happens, so there are times when the laptop never makes it out of the backpack. Luckily, I was able to schedule posts for the days we were on the road! (I'll be sharing photos and stories from our trip very soon!)
I want to send a huge thank you to Cate for providing the challenge and INSPIRATION to blog every day this month!!
(Don't worry, I know there are two days left in the month, and I'll have a post for you both days!)
Did you participate in Cate's challenge? What did you learn along the way?
