About Me



I'm currently designing and selling professionally printed stationery in my Little Happy Day Etsy shop. My first batch of stationery is unusual in that each design has a random sentence printed at the top that makes absolutely no sense. I'll be adding more designs to my shop very soon. There will be more random sentence stationery as well as stationery without text. I'm sorry, but I don't ship internationally.

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.


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 42 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, a black cat named Johnny Cash, and an outdoor cat named Frankie Mae Castle. I have a raccoon friend named Rascal that I feed every night.

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)

  • LEGO
  • vintage touristy
  • handmade
  • Disney


  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Alphabet Stickers
  • Packs of kawaii sticky, shaped flags/markers (no loose ones please)
  • Unused US Postage (Any Denomination)

  • Unused, Non-touristy PC's
  • Accessories for My Traveler's Notebook (e.g. inserts, charms)
  • Tiny shaped erasers
  • Tiny toys
  • Shaped beads
  • If you're feeling really generous, something from Bubble and Bloom, my favorite Etsy shop (FYI: I don't have a wax warmer and I don't like the peach scented items).

Comment: Ahhhhhh! I love my Gir patch, he's so cute! Thank you so much!
Comment: Hey Suzanne, got your ATC today. Love it. Didn't have any happy mail for days... This has cheered me right up. Especially like the kitty on the envelope. Looks like he's got a strong aura! I never went for the spray inks, they seemed so expensive and possibly fussy? But I've got all the india/acrylic inks my little heart desires so I'm good! The horse reminds me of all the horsey books I read as a child. I think I probably read all the classics in the genre...
Comment: Hiya kiddo! Thanks for the ADORABLE little ducky! Love the bright colors too - very Spring!
Comment: These patches are so well made! I love them!! Thank you so much. I really enjoyed reading about the techniques you used to make them too.

Thank you so much for the birthday card. It's the very first that I received this month <3

LadyJo on Apr 8, 2021:

Thank you for the wonderful WW for April! Thank you for telling me about the stationery you sell! Loved this! I also liked the postcards. I was to the World's Fair in 1982, when I would have been 11. Wasn't back since. I was to Sevierville a couple of years ago for two days. We saw a quick overview and want to return!

lindseyjae on Apr 6, 2021:

Hiii! Thank you so much for the birthday card you sent me, it is so cute! I also ADORE the swap inserts you made for me, they're so so cute! p.s. - no worries about not including the "RAK" option, I still love them and will use them up soon I'm sure!

Thanks again for always being so kind! (WW April)

Thanks much for the mushroom deco! That will be fun to decorate.

stephiedee on Apr 2, 2021:

Thanks for working in my Animal Head deco, Suzanne! Love how it all turned out....and loved the envelope, too! The chihuahua head works...especially when you notice it's mimicking the image on the guy's shirt. 😂

CajunLady on Mar 31, 2021:

I put off watching Hannibal for months because I was afraid to watch it. Either I was going to love it or hate it. I loved it. Too much. The book series is awesome too. And although I'm episode or two behind, I've been watching Clarice also.

CajunLady on Mar 30, 2021:

Thank you for the Eat the Rude sticker from my etsy list for the CPG list!! It's on my laptop right now!!!

HippieChick on Mar 25, 2021:

Thank you for the wonderful card and Gudetama letter set along with the OMAE deco. You always brighten my day when you pop into my mailbox! Thanks for being fabulous!

susieq11 on Mar 24, 2021:
