A while back around 2 years ago I did a Valentine box project for the kids. I do like normal link back to the creator and gave thanks. About 6 months ago she sent a nasty comment on the post asking I take down the directions that she wanted the people to come to her site. So I obliged and took down the instructions and made a note why I did so. Then this week I get another nasty gram from her about the pictures I left up of the kids making the boxes. I'm not going to link to her here, I just will leave it be. I'm blowing steam off here.
I so know how it is when you make a craft (unlike her comment that I need to create my own stuff and stop stealing others project ... I do many of my own ideas also) and have someone put it on their site and NOT link to you. I have several of my ideas that are on other's sites with no mention of me, I just don't sweat it. There is so much going on to have to make sure I get credit and to pump up my hits to my blog.
Maybe I should have printed out her business card and handed out at school when people asked about the boxes .. LOL. Every time I go to a party from now on with something I made I'm going to pass out the website I found it on to make sure people get the credit
I really do get where she is coming from I'm just over it and had to vent. It has been a REALLY rough week and this was just the icing on the cake of a crap week .. lol.
AND to make you laugh
