About Me


This is one of my favorite possessions, Little Miss No Name, a doll made by Hasbro in 1965. I found her years ago on eBay in excellent condition. She was just missing her tear.


I'd love an ornament from you (store bought or handmade) to put on my year round tree.


I commissioned this illustration of me from Lemanntim on deviantART.


This is me in my crafting cave.

My name is Suzanne and I'm 45 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 and formerly feral cat, Frankie Mae Castle. Many of you remember that I had a black cat named Johnny Cash for 16 years. Unfortunately my little sidekick passed away on 1/13/2022. He left this Earth peacefully while lying on my lap. He is sorely missed.

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.

I’m a comic book fan. I was a loyal monthly "The Walking Dead" reader until it ended in July of 2019. As far as superheroes go, I used to be strictly a DC fan, but have started "accepting" Marvel. Here are some of my favorites. :

DC Universe

  • Batman
  • Batman Villains (especially The Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Ra's al Ghul)
  • The Flash
  • Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne is my favorite super villain of all time.)
  • Flashpoint
  • Superman (I'm in love with Clark Kent.)
  • Supergirl
  • Lex Luthor
  • Martian Manhunter
  • The Green Arrow
  • Teen Titans
  • Suicide Squad

Marvel Universe

  • Deadpool
  • X-Men
  • Daredevil
  • The Punisher
  • Jessica Jones
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  • Thor
  • Loki
  • Ghost Rider


  • vintage hotel/motel
  • "Greetings from . . ."
  • insane asylums/sanatoriums
  • prisons
  • LEGO
  • vintage touristy
  • handmade
  • Disney
  • Mount Rushmore
  • The Badlands
  • The Corn Palace
  • Wall Drug
  • linen
  • National Parks


  • Planner stickers
  • Please don't send me any sloth or llama related items. I liked them a long time ago when they weren't ubiquitous, but now that they are I'm sick to death of them.
  • I don't like NASCAR or sports.
  • I'm not a dog person AT ALL, so please refrain from sending me dog related items.
  • Candles and incense. I love them. I just can't burn them in my home.
  • Please don't send me enamel pins. I had a collection at one time, but I'm over it now and I've sold most of it on Mercari.
  • I don't cook. Please don't send recipes 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.
  • Paper scraps
  • Bookmarks
  • Puffy/raised stickers
  • Loose page markers; please send the whole pack; I hate how the sticky residue picks up dirt and hair
  • Sticky notes (unless they're really cool and you send the entire pack--again that pesky, sticky residue)

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.

Wish List

  • Pressed Pennies
  • Highly scented wax melts/tarts
  • Unused US Postage (Any Denomination)
  • Flat Stickers
  • Large Kawaii Memos
  • Kawaii Letter Sets
  • Any Kind of Letter Sets
  • ATC's
  • Larger Note Cards with Envies
  • Random Envies
  • Vintage Motel/Hotel PC's (written or unwritten)

Comment: Wow! That was fast! I love the little cross stitch and it will go up on my wall! I've never used 18 count and it is super tiny stitches - eek - I don't think I could do it that small, I'd give up lol. My cross stitching is sooooo slow, it's been a while since I've really done anything with that! Thank you for this, I love it!!
VioletLove rated for Super Awesome Spring Swap on May 18, 2024
Comment: Fantastic as always! When you said that you were now doing macrame I was secretly hoping that you would send one of your creations. I am so glad that you did. The rainbow is perfectly cheerful for spring, and I love it! We are down to a couple of very janky umbrellas so the one you sent is greatly appreciated. It is adorable and I will not be sharing it with my kids lol. The hand drawn sinister bunny card is too cute. Thank you so much for another fun swap!! I am putting the finishing touches on yours and it will be on its way soon!

Comment: Thank you so much for Daphne, she's beautiful!! And yes, I think she needs her Simon to complete her beautiful couple self. :)
Comment: I absolutely love swapping with you! You're so thoughtful and everything is so well done and thought out. The NBC Book cover is amazing and I can't wait to add it to my bag with the other goodies holder you made me! It will be my new place for notes and such and I know I will think of you everytime I use it. That pincushion is so stinkin darling!! And the pins! So cute! And the lilo stocking is so cute as well! I have it hanging up on the stand behind my tree! I LOVE the Snake wallflower and now must find the perfect spot to plug it in at so it will be seen - and yes the wallflower scents are perfect - I love them! Stitch ornament, I didn't have that one and it's already on the tree! NBC Oven mitts will now definitely be swapped for the ones that are falling apart lol. Love them! And the Momiji blind box was the one on the front - the dragon, which was one of the few I was missing!! Thank you for everything, it's so perfect for me!

Comment: HOLYCOWSUZANNE!!!!! What in the world?! How do you just get more talented?! You literally brought tears to my and my daughter's eyes with what you made and gifted us with! First, everything was so precious (we even spent time "salvaging" the stickers on the outside of the box ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ). There was not something in the box that we did not ohhhh and ahhhhhh over! The Halloween mouse card was so, so cute! Even cuter was all of your packaging, the bags and "wrapping" paper was lovely. Also, the boo pennant and adorable kitty are already up in our house with our Halloween decorations (although, I do not think the kitty is ever coming down, Halloween or not. Seriously, those two items look so professional, I just cannot believe you made them! You even made the kitty a "tag!" A freaking cute tag). The stickers and washi are so perfect. I really have so little in the way of Halloween stationery, so they are so lovely to add to my meager collection (I need to solve that lack! So that I can add it to my own STATIONERY ORGANIZER! Like what?! Could it be cuter?! No! The answer is no). And then you wrap the whole thing up making me freaking letter sets, stickers, stamps, and PDT labels of the cutest mail-ghost ever! Seriously, I think I am a little angry at how cute everything is! (◍•ᴗ•◍)♡ Now I have to up my game for your swap...nope, I am not imitated at all, nope ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )
Response: OMG! This rating makes my day! I'm so glad y'all loved everything! I can't wait to see what y'all come up with. I know it will be spectacular as usual. =D Thanks for the awesome rating!
VioletLove rated for Awesome Halloween Swap Take 3 on Sep 21, 2023
Comment: Oh my goodness, where to begin?! Everything is absolutely wonderful!!! I love how you took kits and patterns and customized them to make them even more awesome. The frog witch is beyond adorable with her hat cape and little pumpkin bag. I have already hung up the spooky embroidery hoop art (next to the grim reaper cross stitch that you made for me!). I love the vintage cat theme. The sad little ghost is just perfect. I'm thinking it would work really well as wall art for my dollhouse. I love to bake in the fall and I can't wait to use the oven mitt and baking set. The Em + Sprout bag is too cute. I love the pattern. I'm trying to have some willpower and not order everything I see on their website. The temu goodies are super cute. Even the wrapping paper is adorable. I can't thank you enough for swapping with me again. I really appreciate all of the thought and care you put into our swaps. Happy Halloween!
Response: I'm so glad you love it! It was so much fun to put together. It gets more fun and challenging every year!

Comment: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE the sweet tiny triceratops! I can't believe you sewed these tiny little pieces. I don't think I would have attempted something so delicate. She is going to come live in my office with my other favorite toys. Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. Aloha!

Comment: Suzanne!!!!! "Oh my word - these are gorgeous!! That Plague Doctor is just the ABSOLUTE BEST EVER! He is soooo stinkin cute and already displayed where I can look at him everyday!! He's so soft and so amazing - I can't believe you made that by hand - that's superb work! And that organizer - I LOVE all the patches! The shark, the cloud, everything. This is going in my bag for work. This will be perfect for me for my lunch breaks - I can carry all sorts of fun stuff with me. And the glass jar -the open ziploc one, is so adorable - it's got some skittles in there right now and it's just so cute. Thank you for this amazing swap and for being an amazing friend. I appreciate you so much!

Do you sense a theme here!?! EVERYTHING WAS ADORABLE! Whew, okay. I'm going to be okay. Thank you for inviting me to do this swap with you and I so look forward to doing it again! I cannot give you enough hearts. This message cannot contain the amount of hearts I want to send ❤️💜♥💗💚♡💙🧡❤🤎💛ღ🤍💌
Response: This rating makes my day! I'm so happy you loved the swap. I had so much fun making it. I can't wait to do another private swap with you in the future!

Hi Suzanne! Thank you SO much for the beautiful birthday card and playing cards! made my day!
