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.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #7

This week I actually have scrapbooking projects on two tables! First, I need to add journaling to an almost completed layout on my craft table. This page will be the first layout in our 2017 chronological album. The pile of page protectors and photos above it on the table are the other photos and memorabilia I plan to scrap from January. This evening I'd like to finish that title page and maybe the front & back of a divided pocket page, and hopefully I'll find time over the weekend to complete three more 12x12 layouts.


I'm also just getting started on a custom scrapbook-for-hire project - a European cruise vacation album. I've gathered the items to start this project on our big front room table. On the left is the notebook and tons of memorabilia from my client, sorted into dividers by day. In the middle of the table are the supplies I've purchased for the album - Authentique's Seafarer collection, page protectors, cardstock, twine and washi tape. To the right are the photos I had printed from my client's digital files. This is going to be a FUN project! Tomorrow I'll make several sample pages in preparation for a meeting with my client on Friday.


Joining in today with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?

WOW scrapping for a client! I have made a few scrapbooks for friends, one was a wedding album, lots of children but never for a client. Excellent BJ#1

Wow, that's a big undertaking! Like BJ, I've made a couple scrapbooks for friends, but doing one for pay would feel very intimidating.

I do hope you had time tonight to finish a few more pages in your day to day album. Your scrapbook for hire customer is certainly getting a talented artist to work on their album.

Sounds like you're very organised in your scrapbooking. Sadly another thing I am not organised in. I do enjoy it and enjoy making mini-albums for my family. I did one for Mum for Christmas and one for my daughter. I'm just not so good at scrapping my own trips.

Happy WOYWW
