Well, hello there! I want to be the first to welcome you to my
Crazy Happy Place
I’m so glad you’re here!
Crazy Happy is a lifestyle blog of happy, healthy, handmade awesomeness. It is a place of laughter and a place of encouragement. It is a community of creatives. It is a platform for a healthy and active lifestyle. Whether you are creating with your mind-blowing DIY skills, learning new healthy tips and recipes, or laughing at the awesomeness that is life, Crazy Happy is dedicated to being the happy little blog that will make you smile.
Create, Healthy, Life
When I stopped to think about the things that really get me fired up, I discovered that the things I loved and valued the most fell into these three categories – Create, Healthy, Life.
Here are some posts that I am the most excited about right now:
- squeezing all of the goodness out of beets
- world’s best pizza recipe (<< maybe not so healthy, but SO yummy!)
Crazy Happy Crystal
You might be wondering just who is this Crystal girl! People who don’t know me might look at my site and get the impression that I am a super optimistic person who is happy all the time. Even though I was raised by a perpetual optimist, I tend to fall on the pessimistic and cynical side. I suffered from depression and suicidal tendencies for over a decade. My life was far more crazy than happy!
Finally, I decided that I couldn’t live like that any more. I knew that there had to be a better way. I surrounded myself with positivity and cut out the negativity. I did everything I could to focus on the positive things, to find gratitude for things in my life, and to look beyond myself. It was a very humbling experience. It was hard, but to my amazement things got better!
This site is born out of my desire to focus on the good, the fun, and the happy in the world. It is a collection of all the things that make me smile. I want it to do the same for you. I want Crazy Happy to be community of inspiration, encouragement, and general awesomeness. It is as much a reminder to me as it is to anyone else. Life stinks sometimes, but you have a choice. You can chose to dwell on it or you can choose to be crazy happy.
