About Me

This is me with my signature ponytail and goofy grin.

This is a drawing I commissioned from Valerie who is also known as The Tiny Hobo on Etsy. She is one of my favorite artists, not only because her style is so cute, but because she promotes realistic body images. Check out her shop. You won't be disappointed.

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."--Dr. Seuss

What I Pledged.

My name is Suzanne and I'm 39 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 have a shop on Etsy. My plushie, embroidery, and, accessory shop, kiddomerriweather, is currently undergoing a transformation, and has been for a couple of years. I've been battling depression for a while now and just can't seem to get ahead of it. My father passed in November of 2017, so that has caused another setback. I'm trying to remain positive. I can't, however, seem to make myself motivated to create new items for my shop. It's easy to create when I have swap or commission "assignment." I'm just not a self-motivator at the moment. Commissions are open if anyone is interested.

I'm single and I don't have any children. I live at home with my mom, a black cat named Johnny Cash, and 2 dogs (Blanche and Stanley). 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 just don't understand how to work one. 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).

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

My Erin Condren Life Planner

I just got an ECLP on 4/18/2015. I'm completely obsessed with it! I would LOVE to receive any planner accessories. I don't have a theme, it's just a hodgepodge of randomness. You can get inspiration from my Planner Faves List on Etsy.

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.
  • 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.
  • Intolerant people, especially when it comes to religion. I'm a Christian, but believe that all religions should coexist. I also believe that all religions are related to some extent. I'm more spiritual than religious and believe in love and acceptance. I don't mind to receive religious items (just nothing Satanic or related to dark magic--I'm anti-evil). I'm very open-minded and wish other people would be as well.
  • I really don't like holiday items except for Valentine's Day and Halloween. For some reason, I hate most Christmas and Easter items because I find most of the commercialized stuff tacky. I do like handmade Christmas and Easter items though.
