Experience Life as an Adventure!

I have learned that the most important thing in life is experience…
Experiencing different places, different people, different jobs.

Explore South Africa With Me!

I visited Cape Town and the surrounding area in South Africa, including Addo Elephant National Park.

What does it mean to CBliss247?

What a different world it would be if every one of us was doing exactly what we wanted to be doing in each moment…if we all discovered what feeds our fires of creativity in this adventure called LIFE…
Writing, Editing, Creating, & Collaborating

Writing, Editing, Creating, & Collaborating

I have been writing since grade school. My editing skills come from an exceptional 9th grade teacher. And, I have always loved to create and collaborate. I am passionate about the creative process and invite you to join me, whatever your project…

Social Media & Web Content Management

I have created content for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, blogs, & more. I’ve worked extensively with WordPress, a CMS that is so user friendly that I built this website myself! And I love the challenge of learning to use new software…

Photography: Marketing, Wildlife, Nature, & More

I love taking ALL kinds of photos and have a good eye for the creative. I am self-taught, having worked with and learned from several incredibly talented graphic designers. I use a Canon D-10 digital camera. Here are a few samples of photos I’ve taken…

Caretaking for Pets, Plants, & Properties

Caretaking for Pets, Plants, & Properties

I’ve been taking care of pets, gardens, and homes throughout most of my life (mostly for friends, family, & colleagues). I recently completed a house & dog sitting gig in Spokane, WA, and LOVED it! I am open to opportunities in other places…

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.

If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Chris has done work for me consistently over the past 5 years, and she is one of the most valuable members of my team. She is smart, organized, creative, and detail oriented. Her work is always top notch, and I have been able to give her projects which she completes with minimal supervision, on time and with excellent quality, literally every time.

I can honestly say that I wish everyone that I hired was even half as good as Chris is.

Owner and Developer, Klages Web Design

I delightfully worked alongside Chris every day. While Chris fulfilled her own distinct role and responsibilities in marketing communications, she provided much crossover assistance in proposal development. Chris is a roll-up-your-sleeves team player who not only can take a task but an entire project and run with it to successful completion. She never fails to provide quality and current insight and application to corporate communications, whether it is for the web, for marketing collateral, or for technical/sales proposals.

Christine is an exceptional writer and editor who dives into projects with passion and energy. Mediocrity is not a word in her vocabulary! She sets the bar very high for collaboration, quality of work, and innovation.

I was thrilled to be engaged in Christine’s creative team for the publication “Transforming Boundaries.” This was one of the most enjoyable partnerships in my 20+ years as a professional consultant.

Chris is creative, innovative, positive, fun, self-motivated, and highly regarded. I had the privilege of working with Chris at the Bozeman Public Library. In my 30-year career of public service work, I have never worked with anyone more enthusiastic and genuine than Chris. She has the qualities to be successful and achieve anything that she is challenged with.
MaryJo Stanislao

Head of Circulation (retired), Bozeman Public Library

You have a true gem in Chris. She is an excellent communicator, and she went well above and beyond the call of duty in taking care of my furry pet, Dolce, the whole time I was on vacation. She also stayed at my house while I was away. Because of Chris, I was able to be away from Dolce and be confident that she was being loved and looked after. I really appreciate the extra love and affection she gives Dolce! It is rare to find this kind of customer service.
Christie Cox

Territory Sales Manager, Solid Gold Pet

Chris worked with Jogi and I to edit our new book Sink, Float, or Swim. Every day I get a minimum of 3 calls of how that book has touched people’s lives and without Chris this project could have never happened. Her work ethic is amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a world class editor to hire Chris. Just one caution, she takes her work serious so roll up your sleeves and get ready to rumble. The end product will be amazing.
