Sabbatical

Dear Blogger Friends of Pink Cheeks,

Thanks for always tuning in and for your nice comments and enthusiasm about the silly plush things I design.  You have made this stuffed journey of mine so exciting and heart warming, thank you!  I am taking a bigger break than anticipated.  I never fully healed from my repetitive stress injury, and I think it is time I prioritize.  As my own boss of my Pink Cheek business I know I would force my employee to not work through the pain and instead drink more tea and read better books and put her feet up and maybe enjoy the (free) cable she recently discovered she had and let her body recuperate.  I don't know why I have been so hard on myself---it's ridiculous really.  I need to take a very long break and let my ulnar nerve heal properly so that it stops freaking out and making my neck hurt and my fingers tremble.  Thanks for reading, I'll be back some time!

Yours,
Nichol

Take care Nichol! Now is a great time to relax, in my opinion.

And if you miss making plushies, you can always look on the internet and post about people you've discovered or like as a remedy :)

Keep us up to date- I wish you all the best with your recovery!

Take care, we want you to be healthy and happy. Just think of all the time you will now have to read blogs. As they say down South "let us hear".
Love and hugs, Susan

Nichol, I so much understand what you're talking about. I'm in the same boat. I haven't updated my shop in ages and I couldn't care less. Claying helps me to relax so that's what I do. I drink tea, watch movies and read too. We only have one of ourselves so we should take care of that. Enjoy your break & we'll see you when you're back - take it easy & enjoy your holidays when they come nearer.

Nichol-rest and relax and recharge! We will miss you and your amazing creations while you heal, but having you pain free is the most important thing!!! Curling up with a few good books and a cozy blanket is one of the best cures I know of. :D
All the best for a speedy release from the pain, and a wonderfully relaxing holiday.
