Thank you to everyone for your mail and off Etsy orders, lol! I will never stop being amazed and thankful that people seem to really love and enjoy something I create. And No, HELL no, I will not give up, go away or be bullied. That is just not in my DNA. Sometimes it takes me a bit to get things done, I have to split my time between my grooming business and the glass. And, right now, I’m doing Holiday Craft Shows. And, I have a 14 year old who keeps me super busy. If I ever feel like packing it in, she doesn’t let me! For someone so young, she has an amazing sense of what’s right and what’s not, and she always motivates me to keep mouthing off and take a stand. And, really, that may be where most of the drama comes from, lol. I am sure that this entire situation has stemmed from some entity that I have annoyed. Oh well, “hater’s make me famous”, lol. It has given me the opportunity to learn quite a bit about law and what I can and can’t do and what corporations must do. For example: the owner of a trademark has to show due diligence in protecting said mark. If you browse the internet, Pandora espouses how they will do this, but make it very difficult to find a way to send them information to turn in violators. Why? That would cost too much money to have all of the millions followed up on. Instead, they joined an organization, React, that charges a flat members fee. And said organization is not run very well, I might add. Very shoddy and very unprofessional. They sent me the “Power of Attorney” document in it’s original, fill in the blank format, lol. As in, insert document number here, etc, etc. Sad, but true. And as difficult as they are to find, since they found me, I have great contacts for them, and have forwarded over 300 links to “infringing” items. Now, if they don’t follow up, that’s not due diligence, is it?
Ok, anyway, on the glass! I know you guys love the frogs, and I made some, but, poof! they sold. I will hit the torch tonight and create some critters! And I have neglected Facebook. It’;s time to do The Bead of The Month. I’m on it, doggone it. And no, I will never go away. If I get shut down, I will Evolve. (K, I know you HATE that word, sorry, lol) But I own the dot com! It’s always an alternative!
