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.

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.
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 have a new obsession: DISNEY!!! I went to Disney World in November of 2014 and now I can't get enough! Some of my favorite characters are:
Other things I love about Disney are:
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. :
I AM NOT A FAN of Superman or Wonder Woman.
