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.

July's Twelve Photos - Birthday Gifts From Robbie
And here's my interpretation of the twelve prompts:
1. Something in Motion - a Splat Clock for my new craft room. It looks perfect on those yellow walls and makes me smile every time I glance up to check the time!
2. Sweet - a birthday cake Robbie had waiting at the Bed & Breakfast in Taos.
3. Words - I can use lots of words talking on this new phone for my craft room.
4. Refreshing - new supplies my stash are always refreshing.
5. Your Summer Shoes - a fun pair of Crocs!
6. A Seasonal Fruit - some of the names of these inks are perfect for this prompt (Lady Bug, Tangelo, Cantaloupe, Dandelion, Pear Tart, Cottage Ivy, Bahama Blue, Danube Blue, Lilac Posies, Grape Jelly, Rich Cocoa, Tuxedo Black).
7. The Inside of Something - inside this box, I found a lovely bracelet that I had admired at Hallmark a week or so before my birthday.
8. Something White - this white sheet of paper displays the new alphabet stamps Robbie secretly picked up while we were browsing a fun stamp shop in Santa Fe.
9. Nature - a dozen roses were also waiting at the Bed & Breakfast in Taos.
10. Your Keys - the old typewriter keys on the front of this reading journal remind me of my days in typing class. And there are keys (well, buttons really) on the bottom of my new Kindle in that green cover!
11. Parts and Pieces - Crazy Crayon Disks made from shaved pieces of crayon. These will be fun to use in my art journal!
12. Entertainment - something fun, just right for playing!
What do you think - did these items fit the prompts? The August list of prompts comes out today, and this time I plan to snap photos before the end of the month creeps up on me!
