New review!

Yay!  Hand Made Ink has a new review!

Here it is:

“Excellent quality in both materials and workmanship, Suzanne created a custom set of these dice pattern placemats for me. The measurements, colors, and accents are exactly what I requested. Suzanne is a pleasure to work with and will make every effort to satisfy her customers. Mats arrived well packaged, no damage anywhere, in a timely manner. Added touch of inside tissue wrapping with a ribbon tied in a pretty bow just added to this very enjoyable experience. So grateful people like Suzanne exist as I was born with a “black” thumb when it comes to the domestic arts of sewing, crafts, design, etc. Thanks, Suzanne!!”

Aww.

I love when this happens!

It’s always a pleasure to know the things I have created have found happy forever homes!

Reviews like this, fuel me to create more.

I love what I do.

We wanted all original songs and one that sounded, “radiationY.. ”
We set out to find the right sounds.
Radiationy was born.
Dubstep seemed natural choice.

Cancer Can’t Trailer

dsc_0035

Yeah, the above happened earlier this year.  I was a bug alien belly dancer and totally in character. 🙂

My friend Shaina and I have been hard at work on a video of my journey the past year.  Here’s the Trailer. It turned out pretty awesome, had a blast putting it together.
Coming soon, Cancer Can’t, be looking for it.

 

Nureeta Mae Halloween Solo

I was driving back from a wedding a few weeks back when Spotify played the song, Hot Volcano, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFE7UvHUAF8, it spoke to me. From that moment, in my driver seat, at 75 mph, I danced, wiggled, really.  I envisioned the butt wiggle, the spooky eyes, the ghostly moves, the purple get-up, the look just had to be. My motivation?  A late 1800s madam, who refused to be a ghost.

I simply refuse to stop dancing.  I refuse to stop being joyful.  Living my life.  My chemo may be ending, and options may be running low, but I’m feeling as though I am only beginning to live.  My story has not ended.  I am not done.

I do not wish to be ‘that’ cancer story, you know the one, the one that makes you cry.  I’d rather maybe make you cry a bit when you hear what I am going through, but by the end of this, I want you to be cheering, and/or laughing your ass off, because that’s how I roll.

 

Let me see YOUR smile.. Check out my solo, I was super extra spooky, just for you.  The one reading this, now.

Enjoy- Suzanne (Nureeta Mae, of Prairie Moon Belly Dancers)

I danced, again!

fgnfg

Last Friday my fellow dancers threw me a benefit. They all danced, little did they know I’d feel well enough to dance at least a few dances.  We dance an improvisational dance, my fellow shimmy sisters in my American Tribal Style (ATS) belly dance troupe, out are of Hasting, Nebraska.  There is a whole community all over America. I love being a part of it. Thanks for reading. Have a great Thanksgiving! -Suzanne
