About Me

me January 2019

This is me in January 2019.


This is a drawing I commissioned from Valerie who is also known as The Tiny Hobo. 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

"Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you."--Ovid

What I Pledged.

My name is Suzanne and I'm 40 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'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 am, however, trying to remain positive.

I'm single and I don't have any children. I live at home with my mom and a black cat named Johnny Cash. 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 to 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).

I can't seem to make myself motivated to create new items for my Etsy shop, so I've taken everything out of it for the time being and have gone on hiatus. I just didn't feel my shop looked "inviting" with only 3 or 4 items listed. It's easy for me 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 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.

Don't be limited to just the things listed above, but I would appreciate you looking at my profile

I’m a comic book fan. I'm a loyal "The Walking Dead" reader and read it monthly. As far as superheroes go, I used to be strictly a DC fan, but have started loving Marvel, too. Here are some of my favorites. :

DC Universe

  • Batman

Batman and Robin

  • Batman Villains (especially The Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Ra's al Ghul)
  • Teen Titans
  • Legends of Tomorrow
  • Reverse Flash
  • Flashpoint
  • Suicide Squad

I AM NOT A FAN of Superman or Wonder Woman.

Marvel Universe

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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
