Ho Ho OUCH is right! I won't go into all the details, but due to severe strain in my neck, shoulders and upper back (don't even ask me to spell or pronounce the diagnosis), which has now extended to my left arm, I'm out of commission for about a week - sort of. I am able to finish up my existing orders (v e r y s l o w l y), but just cannot create anything new right now.

This is actually perfect timing. I've been needing a break as I've been going head strong for a few months now. I've even had little hints from my body, my friends and family that I needed to slow down or take a break, buuuuuuut.... So, now that the holidays are approaching, sales have slowed down and I want to spend time with my family, now is good as any.

With that said, I put myself on an early vacation in my Rocki's Supplies shop and am having a Ho Ho Ho Santa Red Sale in my Rock 'n Bead shop. At least those items are already created and all I have to do is package them up. I'm not closing up my supply shop, items can still be purchased, but I just cannot process anything until I return.

Have a great week everyone!

Your pain in the neck,

☮ Rocki

(p.s. isn't my new symbol ☮ uber cool?! My sweet friend/sis Sharon found it and send it to me)

Good for you!! ...the break that is, not the pain you're feeling. :D

I'm so happy you're taking a much needed and VERY deserved break!! Oh and I'm ♥in' those peace sings. ;-)

I agree with Sharon ~ good for you! I'm sorry you're in pain tho...that sux!
And I'm really bummed I can't see the peace signs!! All I see is a little block with some numbers. Hmph. OH well, I'm sure they're uber cool if Sharon got 'em for ya! lol
Have a great week Rocki!! :o)

I'm so sorry to hear you've injured your back! I'm sitting here on a heating pad myself due to lifting the corner of a desk to plug a lamp in! You know you're getting old when a simple task puts you out of commission! LOL I sure wish my body and my brain felt the same age :)

I can't see the little peace sigh either, darn it!

I hope you get to feeling better soon! *hugs*

Sorry about your back, hope you feel better soon. It is good that you are taking a break, now to get your sis to do the same.

Hey Sis, just stoppin' by to wish you a Rockin' 60's holiday! Enjoy those beautiful sons and that fabulous hubby *waves to Mark*.

Wishing you all the blessing that life can bring in this coming New Year. I can't think of a more deserving person than you for peace, love, joy, RELAXATION, and success! ;-)
