Shh! Surprise on the way!

I know, don't pass out - I usually do not blog on the weekends as I have no time. However, this morning I'm dragging butt and working on a second cup of coffee pondering over the past few days, but excited about what I'll be doing this weekend!

VERY short version: found an Etsy shop that had one of my items, and a couple other Etsy artists items (possibly more) in her shop for sale - pictures and all! Yep, she actually used pictures of OUR own items, slapped her name on the pics and claimed that she made them, yada yada yada. It was very sickening and disheartening to have discovered this. However, I made a very sweet friend out of this experience who you will meet on Monday. No, not the thief.

ANYway... the surprise part! I was hoping I could get to it last weekend, however I was way too busy. So hopefully by Monday I'll have some new Findings in my shop! Nope. Not tellin! My mouth is shut! (what was that comment hon?)

So in the meantime, here is a shameless plug for some of my new goodies:

Darn. Coffee is gone. Well, time to head into the studio :)
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Hey Rocki - this is not new - someone did this before, to some lampwork artists. At least she bought the stuff, before she claimed it was hers, I believe. Did you report her to etsy? It's important to get right on it, as etsy didn't do anything to this person until MANY people were deceived and stolen from!

Wow! That really stinks! No pun intended here. I will look forward to Monday's blog. Looks like a new photo of mom and sons! They are so handsome but hey such a pretty mom what could go wrong? Enjoy the weekend.

OOoooo, how dare she copy our Rocki!! Having been on the receiving end of that too, I know how awful it feels :/ Karma can be a bee-atch, so she'd better watch out!

I love your new heart! Gorgeous as always! Sorry it's been awhile since you've seen me--been busy trying to get two shops established over at 1000markets. Burning the candle at both ends plays havoc with the creative juices!

Love them!! I CANNOT wait until you get them up and for sale.

However, I am terribly sorry for having to deal with the thief. That is AWFUL!!

It's really shocking about that shop owner but hopefully justice will be done. Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve. ;-)
