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.

Studio Calico Thataway
I started by creating two travel layouts, adding in a few items from my stash to go along with the kit papers. This first one documents the day trip we took to Oklahoma the day after we purchased Robbie's new car back in 2011.
The second layout honors two dear friends that I stop to visit on my way down to my sister's house. I try to have a late breakfast with one and a late lunch with the other, which often leaves me arriving later than I thought but full of good memories with these dear ladies.
With some of the remaining papers and wood pieces, I created a travel journal that I bound with my Bind-It-All.
