OK. I am happy that is off my chest. Yuck, I just can't tolerate thieves on any level. There is a difference between being inspired by my work and trying it for yourself, and outright down loading my pictures and uploading them on your site, pretending that you did the work. I remember Every bag I have ever made and each lady I have sewn for. I am like Olivander on Harry Potter (the wand maker...but I make bags). Don't steal my stuff and think I won't notice. My family is the Military. I have brothers and sisters all over the Earth. I will find out. You are NOT welcome to impersonate me.
OK with this dirty business out of the way, I have one more thing to say. I want you to look at my Flickr Gallery. I have some GREAT bags and quilts to look at and show off. I love each and every bag and quilt I have made. In order for you to see my gallery You need to be one of my contacts. Shoot me a Flicker Mail and I will be thrilled to add you to my contact list. You will need a Flickr account, but they are free to set up and fairly simple to understand. Please email me if you have questions. I am back to emailing again. I feel that I am getting caught up pretty well so I have time again to chat. If I have lost you at some point over the last couple weeks, please email me again. I really do love and miss you all! I am also in the process of Water Marking my pictures. That may make a difference.
Here is one of my latest Elaine Wallets. I am testing this little wallet out, So I will randomly select 5 comments from this post and add this "Elaine Wallet" to your order. If you have not yet placed an order, or placed an order in the past and I select you, you can still have a wallet. See I am a friendly gal. I adore the little size. I hope you will too!
Here is my latest Diaper Changing pad. I LOVE this one. This was one BIG hunk of man. I trimmed down the top so much, but it still turned out big. Big but wonderful. I think this quilt/diaper changing pad/ wall hanging is one of my favorite so far. It has such great movement.
OK, a great deal of ugliness in this post, but lets all take a deep cleansing breath and only have good things to say from now on. Remember...I will randomly select 5 ladies to add a Elaine wallet to your order. You can test it out and let me know what you think.
Also do you think I should add testimonials to my website? I feel it is really vain to do so, but maybe it will make people be even more comfortable with me. I have always felt my work speaks for itself....but maybe a 1000 words would be acceptable.
***Update: One of the ladies came foreword apologizing for using my pictures. She claimed that her "friend" did it as she did not have any pictures of her bags. Humm. Well, there you go.
