Congratulations on your new venture. I have always loved your designs (and seeing your adorable children). Part of the reason I love Chatterbox is not only because the products are so amazing, but so are the people. Best of luck to you and I hope to continue seeing you in all the mags!

Thank you for everything you have done for my store for the last 2 years! I am going to miss you so much and I just don't know if the CBX events will be the same without you!! I am so excited for you & Ben, though because there is no greater thing than owning your own business...(no harder thing, either! LOL)
Take care & keep in touch!


you are so strong for making this decision. Its such a hard thing to do, to give up what is so wonderful for the potential of so much more.You will be rewarded many times over I know.
Congrats to you and your family on the new adventure.

I can only imagine what it's going to be like to say goodbye to that place and those people. What a wondeful place to have spent the last three years.
You are blessed. And i know you both will be widly successful in your new venture!!
Change is never easy but you will come out on the other side a new and inviggorated person.
Your friends will always be there when you need them, no matter how many hours and miles separate you.
So, so, so happy for you!!


Christy -- congrats on this big move for your family. Hoping much success in the new business.

I took your classes when you came to Plano, TX several years back. I loved what I learned, I so enjoyed the weekend, and was so entertained by the two of you.

Good Luck!

Holy Cow!

I am positive that you and Ben will be a HUGE success! You two are already a great team!

When I think of Chatterbox, you will always be the first face that I vision. :) What I love about the times that we live in... is that with the internet, blogs, webpages... no one has really moved AWAY. We can still be as close as ever. Remember that! :) I should know living up here in Canada.
And if there is anyone that would support following your dreams it would be me!! :)
Love ya!! Good luck babe and keep us POSTED!!!

Kelli Mann


I'm so happy for your family that this adventure has presented itself! I'm sure it will all go wonderfully!


Christy - what a hard time to have to go through! You have been so inspiring and the Chatterbox family has been so phenomenal in the industry. Thank you, thank you!!

And you must keep the blog so that we can follow your new success and continue to be inspired.
