Welcome To My New Blog

Welcome To My New Blog

My name is Suz, and I live with my daughter in Northwest Illinois.

I maintained a crafting blog for over a year,(June '11-March '12) but have decided to start a new one and have entitled it as "Maytag And Mom" as it's just the two of us now.  

I lost my beloved husband, after a 5 year, 8 month battle with Kidney Cancer on Jan 30, 2013, so it's just my 19 year old daughter and myself now. (Her nickname is Maytag, and of course, I'm "Mom")

I decided that I'd like to blog again (it's been over a year since I stopped my last blog),and I would do it fresh, as the old blog has alot of fun memories with my husband, who loved that I crafted and created and fully supported it, but I started getting weird messages from people in my husband's past, who are just "strange" and I'd prefer to just start fresh.

So, if you have seen me at linky parties in the past, and/or my crafting style etc looks familiar, I could be who you think I am.  If you'd like to know for sure, just drop me a line via a message and I'll let you know.

In this age of cyber stalking and some folks who just like to be hateful, I'm going to start off this as "new".

And, I believe that now is the "right" time to start blogging as MARCH is KIDNEY CANCER AWARENESS MONTH here in the U.S.  The color of the ribbon is dark green.  Here's the ones We had made up to celebrate my husband's life, when he was fighting the cancer, it states "(his name)'S WINNING SINCE JUNE 2007".  I still wear his ribbon as do our friends and loved ones, but I've asked them to turn the writing around since the Lord has him in Heaven with Him.


Thank you for stopping by!
