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.

October Round Up - Continuing the Conversation
Cheri said...I love the use of those printer's trays! After seeing that post originally, I wanted to copycat. I have a half dozen printer's trays to choose from - my only problem? Almost all of my wood stamps are too big to fit into any of the boxes in any of the printer's trays I have! (Is that an excuse to go buy more wood stamps???) Uhm, yes I (of course) think that's a valid excuse!
When I said Hello to October, Sian said...I'm willing to bet that you are a wonderfully inspiring teacher who carries everyone in the class along with her enthusiasm. I'd sign up! Thank you, Sian! Oh, wouldn't it be wonderful if we all lived close enough to crop and journal and take classes together!! I'm so glad we have the blogosphere to keep us all connected.
Missus Wookie's comment about my Drawing vs Coloring Bible Journaling is one of the reasons I enjoy sharing INSPIRATION. She said...Thanks for sharing - especially the specific details of how you do this. Very helpful. I've just found some tracing paper in the office boxes I was sorting and kept it - thinking of you. I've started doing more colouring/drawing in my bible study journal inspired by you as well. As I am so often inspired by the blogs I read, it makes me so happy when something I've shared has been inspirational as well!
And then I laughed out loud at Susanne's comment on that same post as she admitted...Oh I like the idea of this, but I skipped quickly past the snake page!!
I also laughed at Mary Lou's comment about the Collins Group Event. She said...Oh that does look like such a fun evening & I too like that 3d gingerbread house. I have not attended anything like this, I do not know anyone personally that scrapbooks, stamps & makes cards. If I mention scrappy people think I am referring to a girl on girl fight!!! I really do need to get out more ... I've now also learned a new use for the word scrappy.
Thanks to everyone who stops by and continues the conversation each month!
