Hi, I’m Chrystal – a mom to two beautiful girls – Zoë (age 13) and Kaylee (age 11) – and wife to Brian. We live in Big Bear Lake, CA, homeschool our girls and can’t imagine living anywhere other than the mountains! I love DIY Beauty, GF Cooking, DIY Crafts, Homemaking and enjoying life! Our number one goal is to have fun and share that joy with those around us.
