Fáilte (Welcome, in Irish)! Grab a cup of coffee, tea, water or a stiff drink and sit with me a bit.

I'm Cryssi. Designer, techie and mom of five children, grandmother to one beautiful young lady and three handsome young men! I work outside the home as I'm building my home businness in the wonderful Midwest state of Iowa.

I’m extraordinarily multi-talented. I can fix a car then head to the kitchen to make you the most delicious meal you've ever tasted! I love to design and write, but I'm not so good at makeup or have much of a fashion sense. Honestly, I'm just most comfortable in my jeans and t-shirts.

I'm supportive, honest, bold and outgoing. My friends love this about me. They know that they'll always get the truth when they ask me something, no matter what.

I look forward to sharing my little slice of life with you and helping you minimize and shine!
