Quilling Grapes Doily Note Card/ Online buyer beware

Hello,

I saw this card on Pinterest
I was working on quilling then so I changed to quilling grapes.

On to a different topic.  This morning when I logged  in to my dashboard this is what I found

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Pat's Birthday gift":

Hi, I found someone than has your photos of quilling jewelry and she says she made them, I give you the link if you want check it.



Thank you Anonymous for letting me know about this. I made that set for my friend's birthday gift about 2 years ago.  You can see it here.

 I wasn't mad or angry about this.  On the other hand I was flattered that someone like my quilling jewelry so much that she/he claimed it their.  I guessed that person didn't know how to make the box to go with the set that was why she/he stole only the quilling photo.  And my photo wasn't even a good one.  I tried to contact the seller but couldn't get further than that first page.

So from now on I will have to water mark my work.

I will feel very sorry for the person who would buy this set.  So online buyer be ware.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Helen

Helen glad you didnt let it spoil your mood but how silly that the person stole your photo..so lazy he or she must be that they cant even take their own photo..and yes watermarking is very important even though people can still get around that too if they want!

Your card is very pretty.
Some people have a lot of nerve. I can understand liking your set and copying them but geez, take your own picture. Stealing the work of someone else is just plain wrong. I don't blame you for wanting to watermark your photos.

Helen,
I'm so sorry, that you were stolen from, I don't understand, why people do this to others. If she liked what you had done, she/he could have just put a link to your jewelry.
