Beth Williamson

Amazing!! you realy are an inspiration. Ben seems to be pretty fantastic to!


Sounds like it was a fantastic retreat. Those clay hearts in ornate frames are a delight. I absolutely love them!


Wow - looks amazing!!!! I think I prefer Ben's easel to any I could buy!


Loved your story about having the girls for an art retreat....but I can't get over you hosting 100 family members for a reunion?!?!? *shocked*

Oh, how I envy all of you. I miss painting with other painters and creative people. It has been too long. I would love to come over and paint with you. My husband's family lives in Milwaukee, not that far from you. Right?
Have a wonderful family reunion, relax and enjoy!

Ginger John

Wow. That seriously sounds so amazing. Someday I want you to teach me to paint. Someday.... :) xo

Eniko DeLisle

I'm so impressed with the lovely paintings the women created! Good luck w the family reunion! You go, girl!


I am sitting here with tears. I can't wait to get there in September!!!! This is going to be epic I just know it. My first real big girl trip in years. I can't think of a better gift to myself then this.
Christy you are just magical!!!

Janna Werner

This looks like lots of fun! I saw some on the photos on Instagram - I would have loved to be there with you!

Sounds simply amazing! I hope one day I can budget enough $$ to experience a retreat with you! Good luck putting the finishing touches on the new/old house & sit back & enjoy your reunion!!!

Amy Shepard

What a dream to create with you! And especially in your new studio we all watched come together! Having Fibro myself, (as well as RA), I am always amazed at what you can do and it gives me inspiration!

Carla Bange

My favorite photo was the jumping one - what a perfect expression of their joy in themselves, their art and the time together. You were a huge inspiration to them all, I am sure (and vice versa, I imagine). I recommend all future blogs start with a "jumping with joy for art" pic!

Don't worry about the renovations of your home for the family reunion - once we finish we just start over again, so our homes are constantly in fabulous flux - just enjoy the times together and the people. Love you!

Christie - you take Brave Girl to a whole new dimension. You are an inspiration and a blessing. Your family reunion is going to be amazing. I so wish I could meet someday. You have meant so much to me in the last year. Thanks so much for being brave and vulnerable and willing to take a risk. We - your online buddies - are absolutely the beneficiaries.


you are an amazing inspiration...way to go girl! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary Anne Perlmutter

This is my dream...and you did it so well. Thank you for sharing.
