Fáilte (Welcome, in Irish)! Grab a cup of coffee, tea, water, or a stiff drink, and let me introduce you to Cryssi.

Cryssi is an Iowa-based mom, grandma, and entrepreneur. She has four kids of her own plus one bonus daughter and four grandchildren: her heart and soul.

My Family

She loves to fish (naturally), cook up new recipes, attend car shows and races–and spend time with family!. She loves to share snippets of life through the lens of motherhood, her creations, recipes, and her minimizing journey here as well as making digital printables for all occasions over at Cryssi's Creations and unique products at River Queen by Cryssi – she operates all of these out of her home studio that she lovingly calls “The Happy Place.”

She's supportive, honest, bold, and outgoing; which her friends love. They know that they'll always get the truth when they ask her something, no matter what.

She looks forward to sharing her little slice of life with you and helping you minimize and shine!

Start your minimizing journey with a little background.
