Hi! I’m Crystal. I am a wife to an awesome Australian who I met in the dorms my freshman year of college and a mama to two little boys who bring me so much joy and also occasionally cause me to devour an entire pack of double stuf oreos. I recently became a stay at home mom and quickly decided I needed a creative outlet and way to build my on-line community. I love to craft, scrapbook, host parties, bake and drive my husband crazy with my obsession for holidays and photos (thankfully the kids share my love of holidays-photos, though, not so much). I find that I am so inspired every day by the many people I follow on facebook, instagram and blogs. We are all products of our environment and the more I surround myself with great people, the more creative I myself become.

I saw the most beautiful quote recently that spoke to the purpose of my blog “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” I am always trying to learn something new and to better myself. That isn’t always easy, especially when also trying to juggle two kids and a marriage. Or when doubt creeps in because I’m constantly comparing myself to others, but I have decided that I am willing to try and maybe even fail occasionally to create a happy, positive, beautiful life. I would love for you to join me on my journey. I will try to share my successes as well as my failures and to be as real and honest as possible and I hope that in some way I can inspire you to create the life you desire, even if you have to be a copycat to do it. 😉

Thanks for visiting.
