Still Here!

Hi dear blog friends! Long time no blog post! I was just organizing my photos ( a big project I've wanted to tackle for a while) and realized that I missed celebrating Plushpussycat blog's anniversary back on February 16. It's been four years since I started Plushpussycat, and I definitely want to celebrate that milestone. More on that later. :-)

Flossy is ready to celebrate Plushpussycat's birthday. :-)

Where have I been? I've been busy with home projects, spending time in nature, and selling my greeting cards locally. Here's what happened: I started spending a lot more time in nature, away from my computer. I noticed that my long-time back pain improved greatly as a result. Turns out that too much blogging can hurt you! ;-) So, as a result, I've had to simplify my online life dramatically, reading fewer blogs, blogging less often, and so on.


And now I'm trying to carve out some time in my busy life for more creativity, such as designing some new plushy characters and greeting cards and making minis and doll clothes. I haven't succeeded in finding much free time yet, what with tax season and all, but I'm still trying, and tax season is nearly over. :-)

So, I'm still here, I still leave comments on your blogs when I have a chance, and there'll be some new characters AND celebratory fun here soon. I hope you'll stick around to see what happens next, my friends. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  30. Congratulations on your blog anniversary!! Hope you have many more years to come! I love reading your blog!
    I have also been trying to reduce my computer time, you get to do so many other things when you shut down the computer =) But I love reading other blogs and writing my own blogposts, so I try to find a good balance =) As much as I miss reading your blog, it's nice to hear that you are feeling good and have other things to do too =)
    (Btw I love the "blogfriends are real friends" card =) )
    Take care

  38. Hi Jen,
    it's nice to know you're there :-)
    I can not comment your long absence because I know how it works: simply, life drags us (I wrote the first post from July only last week !!!), but today I see with pleasure your fluffy friends, and this is good :-)
    Love & all the best,
    Flora

  39. So glad you're back, Jennifer! Cannot wait for new, whimsical stories and new characters. I hope you find more time for creating new things. I noticed the same some time back; one cannot spend too much time at computer, you sort of lose the touch with actually getting something done. Hope to hear from you! Hugs Sanne

  40. Happy blog 4th anniversary, Jennifer! I am happy to see you post again but totally understand that writing blog is a time/energy-consuming thing. I didn’t post as often as I did last year because of my pregnancy and busy life. It’s great that you spent time enjoying nature. Oregon must be so beautiful in this season (it’s always beautiful in Oregon though) and I miss it so much!! I hope your back pain will be recovered and look forward to hear your creative project. Hugs~

  55. Thanks for your comment on my blog.
    It sounds good, that you take care of yourself Jennifer. Nature is a wonderful and relaxing option. I have moved in our summer house for the summer, here is forest and water, it gives peace.
    It's so fun and cozy, to blog, but it is also time consuming and many details to relate to.
    Enjoy nature and tranquility!!!
    Good luck with your cards.
    Hugs
    Wyrna

  58. Sounds like a great idea! Do you plan to give them as gifts or sell them in an online shop, or...? The necklace you've made looks nice! xo Jennifer
    _________________________
    Hello, I answer to your comment directly on your blog because it's easier for me. For the necklace with a My Little Pony, I think sell but I'm not sur. Firstly I will make some for me with different caracter. But if you are interested, tell me. I could make one for you, with the caracter you want.
    Have a nice day and I'm sorry for my bad english. I use a translator for some words.
    Bye
