This gal is a retired professional ice skater. Boy is she exhausted. I like the color of her face. It is the color of split pea soup. The furry fleece that I used for her ears and ankle bands is such a mess, I look like I have a white cat with a shedding problem. I have some new ideas for Pillow Monsters which I am really excited about.
My name is Nichol and I like to make things with my hands. I draw little creatures with tiny pens in tiny sketchbooks while I drink my coffee or watch my son play with trains. Then, late at night, like a little elf (of the shoe cobbling variety), I bring these little creatures to life. I love to make them. I sew them carefully, with love and patience. I use a large variety of textures to encourage hugs and snuggling. Making these fellows (and ladies) add so much joy and whimsy to my days. It is wonderful to have my humble creative pursuits appreciated and I hope that when you bring a Pink Cheeked friend into your life that they sit on your couch and fill you with joy and wonder.
