About Me

May 20, 2019: I'm taking a break from sewing. I really find myself hating it at the moment. I won't be doing any sewing swaps for a while.

me January 2019

This is me in January 2019.

My name is Suzanne and I'm 41 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 a black cat named Johnny Cash.

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. 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).

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)
  • The Flash


  • Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne is my favorite super villain of all time.)
  • Flashpoint
  • 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


I collect vintage PC's of hotels and motels (prefer unwritten). I also like "Greetings from" PC's (no preference as to written/stamped or unwritten).


  • 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.

Comment: Suzanne, I wish I could give you a dozen hearts for this wonderful journal! It came in yesterday's mail, but our mail runs so late in the day that I didn't get a chance to look at it. When I opened it, I decided that I need to take my time looking through it and share my joy with you, so I'm writing a letter (actually typing it) as I go through it page by page, sharing my thoughts as I go. I warn you, there will be a few questions as well! You did a fantastic job with this! It's easy to see how much creative energy and love you put into your work! Thank you so much for making such a wonderful swap, and watch for that letter from me!
Response: Thank you so much, Kathy. It means a lot to hear this. This journal was so special to me. <3
Comment: Soooo adorable! I love your pink Valentine delivering donkey! Very cute! Thank you so much for the fun pin and deco tape roller too. I put the pin right on my backpack :)

Thank you for sharing some of your linocuts with me, Suzanne! My daughter made an unearthly squeal when she saw the llamas, so I let her pick one to keep (the green one). I've never tried linocuts, just the thick stuff for hand carved rubber stamps...and even that was a little too taxing on my patience, lol. I can see how it can be relaxing for you, like sewing by hand is. Halloween and Day of the Dead will be here again before we know it - maybe you can find some carving inspo there. 🤗

Poftoffel on Jun 24, 2019:

Ha, I wondered what a Germaphobe Cat would look like! :D Too cool! I love those stamps! Thank you so much!!

Poftoffel on Jun 22, 2019:

I am happy and very pleased you like Loki so much! And I’m honored you want to frame him - thank you for the kind words and for making my dat happy! <3 And one day I will draw Dolly, LOL

Singske on Jun 20, 2019:

Glad you liked the paper tear book. Enjoy! ⭐️

ncnurse04 on Jun 20, 2019:

Thank you, thank you for the wonderful pochi bags that you made for me in the Wonderful Wishes group. I already have plans on what they are going to be used for.

stephiedee on Jun 20, 2019:

LOVE the sweet lucky cat arty envelope you made me for the OMAE tag - thank you!

phillaine on Jun 18, 2019:

I was so excited to see the "book it" sticker you sent me for my June wishlist: it's the one I wanted the most, and it makes me happy that you found some things for yourself in the shop, too! Thank you for thinking of me, and for sending me some of your very fun homemade letter paper. I appreciate (as always) you sharing your time and care and creative energy with me. Have a lovely day!

MiRdLHWY43 on Jun 15, 2019:

You're welcome and I'm happy you liked everything. The artist of the freaky cat lady postcards is from here and I just love how weird and unique they are. Hope she doesn't give you nightmare though, haha!

Paige1900 on Jun 14, 2019:

Oops...I forgot to mention I loved the handmade stamps you carved and used on the note card. They were great!

Paige1900 on Jun 14, 2019:

Thank you so much for the wonderful wishes "June". I loved reading about your metamorphosis! I've done the same thing before...but you have a super talent when it comes to sewing, so don't get rid of your stuff, just keep it on the back burner for a little bit, while you explore your many other talents. ♥
