Meet Our Friend Of The Week: Suzie


Are you a long-time blogger who has discovered that as your life evolves, so does your blog? If so, then you’ll relate to Suzie Jackson – the blogger behind
Suzie’s View and our current Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Suzie began blogging when she was a homeschool mom and dreamed that one day her blog would become a small business venture. Like many moms, she thought blogging would be a great way to provide her family with some of the things that they need. But – as life has taken over – she’s found that blogging as a hobby a better fit for her lifestyle, and discovered that God has still used her blog to bless her family as they have needed it.

Recently, she’s become more of an eclectic lifestyle blogger who shares her faith on her blog, as well as giveaways (don’t miss her Happy Planner giveway!), recipes, home decor and more!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Suzie’s day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourself, leaving a little comment love, and congratulating Suzie for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

  3. Happy Friday! Thank you so much for hosting the party. It’s lovely to meet Suzie – her blogging journey really resonates with me. I’ve brought an easy summer dessert with Raspberry and Rose Jelly and Cream, and I’ve shared my Hearth and Soul link party, where everyone is welcome to share posts about anything that feeds the soul (from food, to travel, to anything really!) Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    The only thing that’s really changed over the years on my blog is the appearance and I don’t focus solely on living in an empty nest. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the same. Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. I truly appreciate the way you have taken the initiative to spread the friendship through blogging. I have recently started my own blog. Like every blogger, I too have many plans with my blog.
