Here We Go Again!!!

Many a blog post has been written on this subject. Here we go again. Inspiration!
Inspiring you to do a design like I do is one thing, but copying is another.
I am very unhappy today to see a couple of my designs copied. These are designs that I came up with all by myself in my own crazy head. If you would like to do one of my designs, please ask permission.
I know this has happened to others before, as I have read and sympathized with each of you. I know it is a form of flattery, but....
I can't tell you how weird it is to go to a blog, see a post with your very design, down to the vintage index card etc.
I am not going to rant on about this, but I just needed to talk to my blog buddies about it.
Thanks for listening!!
Have a great day!

Hi Rosemary,

Sorry that this has happened to you.
It makes you angry and surely people can come up with their own ideas.

Your work is beautiful ~ I do love the ballerina dolls as I remember having them as a small girl.

I hope that you have a happy day.

All the best,

Your creations are beautiful! I hate you must deal with your art being copied.

Have a Blessed Week,

A pox upon them!!! I've dealt with that myself. It's irritating, to say the least! Grrrr!

If I see any of them, I shall hit those sneaky copycats with my wooden spoon.
