Good Morning Peeps, I hope you all had a good weekend.
Mine was soured somewhat by a Blogger who seems unable to conduct herself in a fair and honest way and is part of a teeny tiny minority faction that makes us all sad. I refer to a person who not only copies but also uses the work of others.
An incident happened with this person in September and I really hoped it had been sorted then and she would refrain from doing it ever again. Apparently not, as it's happened again at least twice in the last ten days and when it's the girls on one of my Design Teams being directly targeted I take great offence.
Having spent some time reading this persons blog I have little doubt the incidents I know about are not isolated ones as she has several posts where she claims to be posting very old work and for this reason is unable to give any details of the products used. Yeh, right....could it be because she never made the piece ?
And to add insult to injury she consistently sings her own praises on her blog about her quality of work and high profile in the crafting industry. I guess if you are small minded and devious enough to post other peoples work on your own blog you eventually believe all you write.
I thought long and hard about doing this post and initially was all for naming and shaming, but I know this person will see this post and I truly hope that she does have a concience and will see the error of her ways and quit blogland, as there is no place for her in a genuine and friendly environment.
I know the issue of watermarks on work will be raised, well some of the work did have them and has been cleverly concealed.........it's apparently possible if you know how. And other recognisable publicly displayed pieces have I believe, been photographed and then used. I will add at this point, this is NOT the person who did something identical to a friends work a couple of years ago.
Not a nice way to kick start the week and for that I apologise, but it has to be said.
