Are You Brave?

I am .

I am going to an art retreat and I don't know any of the other women…yet:-)


I know I will make friends right away though.


Melody Ross is hosting the retreat and teaching the workshops.

I have always admired her creativity and beautiful heart.

I can't wait to spend a little time in Idaho (I have never been and I hear it is beautiful), create, be with like minded women and relax.


When I showed my husband the website he said I had to go….that it looked amazing.

What a guy!

My mom will be coming in to help with the children because it is during a time that Kelly can't take off work.

Thanks mom!

Brave Girl Camp in October and Silver Bella in November….pinch me!!!!

There are really no words to thank the people that I love. ..that support my deep desire to create.


If anyone else is interested in going I think they have a FEW spaces left.

    Ooohhh, you ARE brave. I’ve been to classes and such where I didn’t know anyone and it was a bit torturous because I’m quite shy. I just keep to myself and try to ‘look’ friendly so someone will want to make friends with me haha.
    You’re lucky, too, that your husband insists you go to these things! I hope you have a great time!

    That is awesome Jeanne! I have no doubt you will make tons of new friends!

  3. Jackie

    That is so great!! You will make friends right away and have an amazing time! Yes, I am brave – I went to Farm Chicks without knowing anyone and look what happened!!It’s all good!

    Sounds like so much fun, Jeanne. I can’t believe you will also be going to Silver Bella too – lucky girl! I am definitely planning on going to Silver Bella next year.

    I have heard of Brave Girl and soooo want to go. It’s so close! It’s a shame I can’t. Maybe next year. I would have loved to have seen your lovely face in person πŸ™‚ This sounds like it will be just perfect for this stage in your life.

  8. PamperingBeki

    YOu are brave. But I knew that before I read this. πŸ™‚
    You’re going to have so much fun meeting new people! I’m jealous – in a good kind of way.

    Hello Jeanne,
    I just found your inspiring blog and I am really enjoying it. I also placed an order on your Etsy store. It’s wonderful!

    wow jeanne!!! sounds amazing! You’re going to have the best time! Don’t you just love the world that blogging has opened up for you!

  11. Melissa Miller

    Thank you for your sweet visit to my blog Jeanne. It’s so nice to meet you! You are so kind. You’re always welcome.
    I had a quick question regarding my Etsy order for the initial. Did I need to specify that I want the letter “M” that you have shown in the photo? Just making sure.
    Have a wonderful time on the retreat.
    How fun!
    ~Warmly, ~Melissa πŸ™‚
    PS Congrats on being in the blog book! I’m really enjoying my lovely copy. That’s how I found you.

    I’m being brave too – and going to a Yoga/Knitting retreat in November and I don’t know anyone there!!!!
    On my way to check out where you are going…

  17. DeniseLynn

    I would sooooo LOVE an oppotunity like this. My hubby would totally support me in it too …. one problem though: It costs more than I can spend and then there would be air fair on top of that. WOW. I am so sad for me. I am sooo very happy for you and for all the other blessed women who will enjoy and grow and learn in the experience of it all. Enjoy every moment my Friend!

  25. stephanie

    I wish I could go..I am in a bit of a place right now..I am doing childhood abuse recovery right now..and I am learning about who I am in Christ..But, I feel so lost as I have to relearn everything and replace lies with truth..It is very hard work and I am so exhausted from it. I can’t wait to hear how this retreat goes for you! Im so excited that this is availible! Keep us updated!
