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 #5

This is my 5th time to link up with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday; however, it's actually the 400th time Julia has hosted this FUN weekly meme! Congrats, Julia, on such a successful and long-running blog event!! I'm enjoying being an ACTIVE participant this year.

This week I've moved my laptop and calendar to the craft table as we begin a new month. I enjoy planning and taking time to get organized, and having everything on the bigger table (rather than the smaller yellow one) just makes it more FUN. I've prepped this week's calendar with some cute washi tape and plans for the week. At the end of each month, I upload all the photos from our phones and cameras as part of my digital workflow, so you can see my phone plugged in to the laptop.

The legal pad on the left side of the desk holds some notes from a brainstorming session with a friend yesterday. I need to transfer a few things to my calendar before discarding that page. The book in the middle of the table is the latest Fiction Pulitzer Prize Winner I've competed, with my notes on top to be entered into a draft blog post for later this month. That little envelope and slip of paper to the right of the laptop is my February blog post topic from my sister Brenda.

I should have all these items processed later today, then I'll pull out my One Little Word notebook and check out the February materials in the OLW workshop.

 What's on your workdesk this week?

That's looking very neat indeed - a close encounter with a planner always feels such a good way to start a month.

I love reading about your organisation even if I can't achieve it myself lol

My work desk is my lap today as I work on joining the body and sleeves of my latest jumper together.

The book looks like The Goldfinch, which I read last month. I will await your thoughts! You are very organized! Happy 400th, and thanks for sharing! Lindart #47

Good morning, Melissa
Okay.. you know those ahh haaa moments? You just gave me one. Why have I never thought to make a monthly routine of cataloging the photos from the phone? Hmmm. You are one smart lady. And I thought I was organized. LOL Sundays are my quiet time/ planning days to get out my planner and update stuff. Thank you for the links. I enjoy physically seeing what others are participating in yet many don't link us up. You are so organized! Looking forward to seeing your post for #401. Creative Blessings! Kelly #48
