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.

Good Mail Coming & Going

It's been a lovely mail week here! A few days ago I received a wonderful envelope from Cheri of Scrap Dreams. We had agreed to swap a few pages from old books, and I am thrilled with these pages from an old law book. Cheri even took time to pull out pages that included specifics for the state of Texas! And she surprised me with some cute doilies. (Thanks Cheri!) Watch for these items on a scrapbook layout soon.

And today I received the prize I won during Beverly's 3rd Blogiversary Celebration over at Be Glorious. I can rarely resist a new journal, and this cupcake shaped journal truly makes me smile! (Thanks Beverly!)

Sharing Your Story: Recording Life's Details with Mini Books
Now it's time for me to send out some Happy Mail of my own as I pass the Sharing Your Story book. The first recipient of this book is Karen from Random Reflections! Congratulations Karen - please email me your address at robbieandmelissa (at) sbcglobal (dot) net and I'll get it in the mail to you!
Thanks to each of you who entered the first Pass the Book: Year Two draw. I'm currently enjoying some inspiration from next month's book, which is all about Art Journaling! (More details coming in a few weeks!)
