Here he is again.... My Albert. It's August, however he is not going to school because he is too cool for school. This is all due to his new collar that was sent to me from my good friend Joy who I went to high school with and summer camp---she was always one of my fiercest lip sync competitors. Joy and I lost touch, and then randomly found each other again through Etsy. It turns out that she has a shop there too, selling dog collars, and leashes to match (!). Her shop is called 8 Paw Collars, for the coolest dogs at the park and I tested it out, and when Albert was in the park sporting his new look, all the girl dogs were asking for his number.
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.
