I am taking a brake

Hi there everyone,
all you wonderful followers of my blog, and lovely commentators of my work. I am sorry I have not yet been around to check so many of the participants of the Bead Soup Blog Party out, or left comments on your work. I do intend to do so during the coming period. Slowly ... and I will most likely not leave a comment on everyone's work, even if I have looked at it.

The truth is I have not been feeling all that great lately, as some of you might have guessed, and I just pray I don't have another MS relapse coming. I don't believe my creative block has been caused by me not feeling so physically great (if anything I would guess it's the other way around.) Anyway I have decided to lay low for a while with my work and blogging and activity in the beading community. I have temporarily closed my shop on Etsy. And you can expect to not hear so much from me here or on other blogs. I will most likely not be completely quiet, sometimes I might get an energy burst and make myself noticed after all.

Please don't give up on me for good, this is hopefully just a temporary phase I am going through. I don't know if it will be for just a few days, a few weeks or even a few months. I'll do my best to keep you updated every now and then.

My memory is particularly bad at times like this, I keep forgetting important things, but I do know I have some things I need to take care of in the community. And my plan is to focus on taking care of them. Like sending things I should send to people, and some other things. Please don't hesitate to write me an e-mail if I have missed something, and you wonder what on earth is going on with that thing. I need reminders! I am not nonchalant. I don't intend to be anyway.

Take care, keep well, and let's stay in touch!

All my best,
Malin

You will be dearly missed. I hope things are better than you suspect and that you'll be back here teaching us more Swedish lessons before long. Take care :)

Dear Malin,

I do hope you feel better soon and I am crossing everything that it is not a relapse. I will miss you and your cheery posts but not for too long I hope!

Hej Malin
Några ord från en helt okänd. Jag har med glädje följt din blogg ett tag och tycker att du är inspirerande, rolig, positivt "galen" ibland och tankeväckande.
Jag hoppas innerligt att du kommer tillbaks så snart som du har tillräckliga krafter och när du själv tycker det är roligt igen.
Kram
Anna (Stockholm)

Malin-
I will be thinking of you and sending healing thoughts your way. I have Lupus and understand how sometimes your body just demands that you take a time-out to rest and find strength. I've learned to listen to those messages, as I'm sure you have too. I hope you find things to nourish your soul while you rest and that you will be able to rejoin us when the time is right. Best wishes,
Linda
