pet peeve....

What. A. Day.
I know that immitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it's really irritating when someone takes your ideas and down right copies them. Don't get me wrong, competition makes the business world go around, but today I was forwarded something that was just down right upsetting. Someone not only copied things I made (that doesn't really bug me as I know many have the ability to do what I do) and the kicker-
SHE EVEN COPIED MY DESCRIPTION, WORD FOR WORD. 
Okay. Make what you please, am fine with that, but at LEAST write your own description.  She deleted the things I had listed she did not make, but even down to the number of exclamation marks.  WOW.
I cannot imagine straight up copy and pasting someone elses descriptions.
I have been told of others who have obviouly taken a couple of my original ideas and started making them, but at least the other 2 ladies wrote their own descriptions.

Okay. I am off my soap box.
This is just another reason that when someone finds something they like somewhere else and bring it to me to make, I change it up and make it my own.

Off to enjoy the rest of this beautiful day with the cutest little boy I know :)
He's an original. That is for sure :)
LOL
Thanks for being fabulous followers who let me vent. I am only human too :)

We are home from teh hospital and he is doing better. For those who have been around this blog for a while, you know it isn't our first rodeo. Blessings and prayers for a healthy recovery.
WHat else has been going on? Well, I got to go to the FINAL FOUR. It was fabulous and didn't quite end the way I wanted :) (GO CATS!) but fun nonetheless :)
We also had a death int he the family, a stomach bug, and preschool spring break.
LOL. My life is whirlwind sometimes!
I have mailed 189 packages in 2 weeks. Seriously. 189.
That's a lot of packages :) Blessed, and thankful for great customers.
Anyways, I know you guys have all had a lot going on too I am sure! Can't wait to catch up!!! I had planne don catching up on everyone's blogs while we spent several days in teh hospital, but I had internet service for a while 30 minutes one day and that was it! Plan failed. SO, I am trying to catch up a few at a time!
Bear with me!
