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.
  • 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
  • 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 PC's of all kinds
  • Accessories for My Traveler's Notebook (e.g. inserts, charms)--standard size

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

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)!
Response: So glad you love it! =D

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!!

Comment: Beautiful zines! I especially appreciate the memorial to your cat He must have been very happy to last for over 16 years! Re suggestions: I did one of my 8 great-grandmothers. Other ideas are: learning How To in 5-7 steps; drawings of the wildlife you see; fav embroidery patterns; music for different moods; covers of fav books; fav movies. Really, anything from your LOOOOONG profile :)

Comment: I absolutely love everything! This swap really was awesome! The skeleton doll is so fantastic and beautifully done. The embroidered witch is adorable. I have admired LiliPopo designs for a long time but had never tried one before so this was a fun treat for sure. The resin items are great they seem like they would be fun to make. You are right those stickers are right up my alley! The stationery is the cutest. I love changing my kitchen towels out for the season so it will be well used. I am just so happy with this swap I am using the skull tote bag today :) Thank you so much for swapping with me again!!!

P.S. I see the snail address labels hidden in the stack...so cute!

Thank you so much for WW August birthday wishes of awesome washi tape, stamped images and stickers! I have been tempted to buy the washi from Etsy and now I don't have to! I agree the washi from Dollar Tree is much cuter and great quality too! I can't wait to use the stamps and stickers, some are going in my Retro Book and some for happy mail. I really love the Halloween address labels too :) Thank you so much for thinking of me!
