HI ALL! Wow I've been SO busy with orders! I'm loving all the new stuff I'm getting out tho! Now a PHOTO DUMP for you!

I had to start watermarking all my photos now (someone stole some of my photos!) but thats ok! Safer for me and more fun photos for you without me being mad about people not respecting my things.

Theres more....but I will spare you the download time, lol.

SO about the picture being stolen. Ok, you all remember when I started making the "camer buddy" back in March/April?


I got an order for an Ernie from sesame street camera buddy. I had never done him before so I went about looking for pictures...none. Noone had made one or if they did they never posted picture. I will just wing it. On the left there is what I came up with. Customer loved it, paid and all is happy.

So about 2 weeks ago I was trying to figure out how to see comments from fans on my FB page, because my privacy settings made it so noone could see them. Figured it out, and went to go delete the spam. There was a woman posting on my wall about "oh, I do those" and "those look JUST like mine!" and I had no clue what she meant, so I deleted the comments. Well, I noticed she has mentioned she also crocheted, and being a lover of all things crochet, I went to look at her pictures. Well she has a small page, only about 11 likes, and a few photos. Well looking through her pics, she makes dog sweaters, thats cool. Well amoung them I noticed MY PICTURE!! ^ that one!! She was taking credit for it like she had made it! I was like OOOOOH I DONT THINK SO!! I reported the picture and told the woman to take it down. My friends also reported it, and commented that they knew it was my picture, and she needed to remove it. Know what she said...."maybe we have the same table...ever think of that." O.o    Seriously? And to top it off, she had made a Elmo and it looked WAY WAY different. Like the style wasnt even the same. I don't knock peoples work, and everyone has their strong points, but she couldn't take credit for my just wasnt the same.  She TO THIS DAY swears that I "stole her idea" ( buddys were your idea?) and that I stole her  sesame street idea (I had no idea you owned sesame street!) so finally the picture was pulled by FB and I informed her to never contact me again. I watermarked all my work and replaced the non watermarked pictures with the watermarked ones. SO MUCH WORK but well worth it. Lesson? Always mark your work and make it known its yours!  People should respect that! I love that I inspire people, but please please don't take credits for my photos and work. Thats not even a good picture! lol.

Alright, enough of my business drama! Hope you enjoy the pictures and I hope you will "like" my page and show some love!
