About Me

I apologize for the long profile, but I like A LOT of things! Hopefully that makes it easier to swap with me.

TM Quilt

This is a Teesha Moore inspired lap quilt I made in December of 2020. It's completely sewn by hand. All the patches were received in various swaps I've participated in over the years.

LittleMissNoName

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.

tree

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

portrait

I commissioned this illustration of me from Lemanntim on deviantART.

me

This is me in my crafting cave.

My name is Suzanne and I'm 44 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

divider

POSTCARDS

  • vintage hotel/motel
  • "Greetings from . . ."
  • insane asylums/sanatoriums
  • prisons
  • LEGO
  • vintage touristy
  • handmade
  • Disney
  • GAMAGO

Dislikes

  • Sentimental Circus, Rilakkuma, and Sumikko Gurashi.
  • Planner stickers
  • 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.
  • 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. Imgur
  • 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
  • Accessories for The Happy Planner (Please NO stickers--I don't like planner stickers)--I use my Happy Planners for mail related purposes, not for planning
  • Large Kawaii Memos
  • Kawaii Letter Sets
  • Any Kind of Letter Sets
  • ATC's
  • Larger Note Cards with Envies
  • Random Envies Imgur
  • Unused PC's of all kinds

All the little pixel icons you see in the "Likes" section were made by me.

Comment: Thanks for another fun round (2nd to last!!!) in this series. Love your interpretation of Wizard of Oz. I had to look up Cyclops. I didn't realize that was his XMEN name! Obviously I am not a diehard fan. Always admire your clean, minimal style as it is so opposite my busy, hot mess! Mad love always.

Comment: I love everything about this swap!!! Your handmade items are amazing as always. The fact that you made that pillow all by hand is crazy! It turned out perfect! I can't tell you how much I love the cross stitch. It will stay up all year round for sure. The fact that you don't especially like to do cross stitch makes me love it even more. I already added the miniature crystal ball and planchette to a spooky little scene on my desk. The store-bought items are perfect as well. I can't wait to try the soap and I am thinking about hanging the ghost in my car. I am going to have the cutest mail with those labels! I can't thank you enough for this expertly crafted and thoughtful swap XOXO
Response: This rating makes my day! I'm so happy that you love this swap. I had a blast making it and putting it all together for you. Happy Halloween!

Comment: OMG Suzanne!! The pillow is so pretty and adorable!! I absolutely love it and so glad you went with the patches theme. Although I couldn't imagine hand sewing through all that denim - you're a rockstar for that! I love the colors and those fabric squares went perfect with this. Thank you for a fantastic swap (and for the bonus coupon)!

Comment: Suzanne, this is awesome!! I have a very small piece of that fabric too, it's one of my favorites. I thought about making a patchwork quilt for myself and including that into it as well. It would be completely mismatched and completely awesome! I don't do the gelli plate myself but I think some of the looks are really neat! I love making these as well and include them with a lot of things! Thank you for all the fun goodies inside of it too, I love the shimmery possum sticker!!
