YEY!!! BIG VOLCANO SALE ON ETSY!!!
Yes for the rest of this month everything yes everything will be subject to a 10% refund in my etsy shop .
Yes that 10% off everything in my ETSY SHOP.
10% of EVERYTHING!!
Whew! Does that get the message over?
Would I make it as a Saatchi and Saatchi ad campaign designer? I think not.
Seriously, I was a bit worried when I suddenly realised when I was sitting here feeling smug because hadn't booked a holiday(but of course very sympathetic with those stuck in foreign places), and it hit me that etsy will suffer due to no airmail capability. So to encourage those who don't mind waiting until the dust settles I thought I'd have a bit of a sale.
Talking of eruptions and dust and so on.. I am sitting here feeling very odd.
I have had a TRULY HORRIBLE evening on etsy.
I was just checking how many hearts I had on etsy and realised I only need 7 to get to 1000 so I was feeling quite smug when I received a very unpleasant message from an ETSY seller who I had NEVER seen..or at least if I had I didn't remember, accusing me of infringement of her designs.
I canvassed a few of my online buddies in all corners of the globe to get their opinion and they all agree that my work is my work. How could I have copied when I hadn't even seen it?I agree that there are one or two similarities but its pure coincidence.
Do you remember this post?
And the handwriting thing..I hadn't seen the other blog that mentioned it until I read about it afterwards on Arlee's blog, but happened at the same time as I thought of it.
But to be asked not to make
'Leaves with the lines round them with what looks like sewing pins sticking out of them, and the double lines divided into sections'
anymore because they were what she does was the pits.
Remember I hadn't seen her work.
I felt like I'd been hit by a lava flow I can tell you.
Well I'll tell you how bad it is...I haven't eaten and it takes some doing to put me off my food.
