What's Happening Now

Imgur

I commissioned this illustration of me from Lemanntim on deviantART.

I currently have two Etsy shops open. Little Happy Day and kiddomerriweather. Little Happy Day is where you can find kawaii printable planner stickers designed by me. At kiddomerriweather you can find a little bit of everything: plushies, resin jewelry, magnets, ornaments, etc. If you get a chance, I'd love for you to visit me there.

After a few years, I've started blogging again. WARNING: It contains spoilers. I forgot how much I enjoyed writing about my creative endeavours. I'll be trying to post a little something every day.

I've just started casting resin again after about a decade and I'm loving it. I even made this jewelry box that I'm really proud of!

Imgur

My name is Suzanne and I'm 42 years old. I'm from Corryton, Tennessee, which is just outside of Knoxville. I am a former social services worker, but now I'm on disability due to bipolar disorder. I am a textile artist, who also loves to draw.
I'm single and I don't have any children. I live at home with my mom, a black cat named Johnny Cash, and an outdoor cat named Frankie Mae Castle. I have a raccoon friend named Rascal that I feed every night.

I love nature. I live in the country at the foot of a mountain, so I'm exposed to a lot of wildlife. I frequently see deer, fox, owls, opossums, squirrels, chipmunks, and raccoons. I just recently had an early morning encounter with a black bear in my driveway! Eeek! It still seems surreal. Opossums are my favorite animals. I love to watch them at night. They are such fascinating creatures. Did you know they don't carry rabies? Their body temperature is too low. Fun fact! I love insects and spiders, too. I find them absolutely fascinating.

I spend most of my time sewing dolls or plushies by hand. I don't use a sewing machine because it's just too complicated for me. I don't understand the mechanics of it all and it feels too daunting to learn right now. Sewing by hand is very relaxing and therapeutic for me anyway. I also love to hand embroider and to draw with a pencil and paper. (I suck at digital art programs. Well I'm ok with pixels.)

I'm almost always open for private swaps, so just ask if you're interested.

Favorite Television

I'm totally addicted to binging t.v. series on Netflix, Hulu, and Prime lately. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. This has cut into my crafting time because I can't pay attention to both at the same time (if the t.v. show is good that is). I make sure to sign up for crafting swaps each month so I don't get completely lazy. I put Cartoon Network on in the background while I craft.

POSTCARDS

I collect vintage PC's of hotels and motels (prefer unwritten). I also like "Greetings from" PC's (no preference as to written/stamped or unwritten).

divider

Dislikes

  • I love tea, but I'm overloaded with it right now.
  • I don't like NASCAR or sports.
  • Candles and incense. I love them. I just can't burn them in my home.
  • I don't cook. Please don't send recipes or recipe cards because I can't and won't use them.
  • I'm scared of balloons, this is not a joke!!! I do love balloon imagery though, so pictures of balloons are great. Just don't send me the real thing. Imgur
  • Please don't send me magnets. I like them. I just don't have any place to put them.
  • I don't like bottlecap jewelry.
  • I don't like getting chocolate in the mail when it's warm outside because it melts on everything.
  • Paper scraps
  • Bookmarks
  • Puffy/raised stickers
  • Page markers
  • Sticky notes

divider

How I Swap

  • This probably doesn't need to be said, but I always send my swaps out on time, usually very early.
  • I mark sent after my swap goes in the mailbox or to the post office, never before.
  • I rate within a day or two of receiving a swap.
  • I believe wholeheartedly in communication. If you're going to be late, please contact me as soon as you know you're going to be late. I'm not going to be mad or rate down as long as you maintain communication with me.
  • I usually reuse packaging on larger swaps. It saves me money and is better for our environment. If this is going to be a problem, please let me know.

divider

Wish List

  • Pressed Pennies
  • Alphabet Stickers
  • Unused US Postage (Any Denomination)
  • Flat Stickers (I love kawaii sticker flakes)
  • Large Kawaii Memos
  • Kawaii Letter Sets
  • Any Kind of Letter Sets
  • ATC's
  • Larger Note Cards with Envies
  • Random Envies Imgur
  • Unused, Non-touristy PC's
  • Accessories for My Traveler's Notebook (e.g. inserts, charms)
  • Tiny shaped erasers
  • Tiny toys
  • Shaped beads
  • If you're feeling really generous, something from Bubble and Bloom, my favorite Etsy shop (FYI: I don't have a wax warmer and I don't like the peach scented items).

Thank you so much for the cool MM Art tag with texture paste! I really like how you outlined the bricks! The teeny cats are so cool and made me remember that I have a bat punch just like that! Gotta find it!

Peace and Love ~ Patty
