Past Friends and Blatant Theft


Really, what is wrong with people.  

I hate to bring it out there, but really, how low can you go.....
grab and sell my designs on Amazon and in your shop like you are so brilliant for thinking up something so unique?  I was the originator and have been selling since 2002 on ebay, and after that on my website...   I am well known in the primitive world and our local area as the artist who makes these.      A former friend?   In my backyard?  
I put my own business on hold many times to help you with your shop, worked many hours unpaid, and listened to all your gossip and lies about customers and crafters and area shop owners....
Knowing I work very long hours on my craft every single day, to provide a better standard of living for a disabled husband and special needs son, while caring for my ailing mom.  I have a right to be angry.   
Yes, screeenshots and proof for my attorney.  This will not stop here this time.
You, who represents artists, and has a legal background....   What a sham.

Happy May Day

I'm not sure why, but I always feel more like a spring chicken on May 1st!  I love springtime and the warmer days, and our gardens.  Tag sales have started, and Matt has brought home a few treasures to surprise me.  The first Brimfield Flea Market of the year begins May 10th and I am looking forward to it!
 April was a rough month for us.  I can't believe all that happened in a month's time, but we made it to the other side!  I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer take on any special orders while caring for my mom.  My stress level is just too high already.   What you find at the shows and shops I'm in will be my only offerings, except for a little bit on my etsy page and my website.  I am so sorry for that, but I have to do what's best for my family and keep the focus on them. 
After a month of almost no creating, this past week was a very productive one and I took a trip to Hidden Treasures to replenish the prim room.  Lots of my cute little raggedies, a mercantile piggy, some woolen kitties, patriotic ornies, and signs and blocks to fill it up.   It looks very nice, and I am hoping to make another trip this week.  I am so proud of Laura!   The love she has for her shop really shows!
