My Copyright has been abused!

Hello dear followers,

I promised in my last post that I would start sharing more of my work with you but unfortunately that will have to wait for just a little while until I can organise a "copyright" watermark to put on each piece of my work. I have never worried about this before but in recent days it has come to my attention that someone has taken so much of my work (from here, my blog) and put them on her website. She did this without my permission and when I asked her to remove them she said she would in a few weeks time. Not Acceptable! The date she said she'd remove them has passed and still she has my work there. She ignores my emails and the emails from many of my craft friends. I don't know what else to do to make her respect my requests.
Had this person asked me for permission to display my work I would have given it but she didn't. Not only has she used my work but it still has my own personal naming on it.. that is for example, on a card for my grandson, it is called FOR ADAM... and she still has that.  The same with all the other pieces of my work.. TWELVE of them in all!
I've been advised that one way to show her what she is doing is wrong is for as many people, from all over the world, to write to her and tell her she is breaching copyright and to remove my work. If you would like to write to this woman, please email me and I will send you the link to her site. Email me on Perhaps if I took the advice of the Duchess I might get further with this Fergie says "scratch her eyes out" but that would involve me flying to another country.
I'm organising a watermark and will show you work real soon. I PROMISE.    Ooooh one more thing.  I have just added a 'gadget' to my blog whereby you can 'FOLLOW MY BLOG' ... I do hope I've done it correctly, if someone could let me now I'd be grateful.  I will post something.. anything in a day or so just to see if this works for you.
Thanks for your support. Angie

Hello everyone

To all my blog followers I want to extend my apologies for not posting on my blog for such a long time. So much has been going on in my life that has kept me away from craft and doing things I love, like tending to my blog.

As you will remember, after I lost my Miss Tshina I got another little girl, Izzy. That did work out and Izzy went back to her former owner. Then the IMPERIAL DUCHESS came into my life. She is the light of my life and the most darling little girl anyone could have. She is such an amazing cat and I am just so blessed to have her in my life.
The Duchess, who is known as "FERGIE" is a Blue Oriental. She is a little over 2 years old and is as smart as they come.
I wanted to introduce her to the world which is only right as she is my "right hand girl"

I promise to post more regularly on my blog. I am back working on the second PENNY FLOWERS and making cards when I can.
One of the main issues that has kept me away from my craft has been this terrible CARPEL TUNNEL I have developed in my right hand. I wont be seeing the specialist until early December so it's a case of doing what I can, when I can. For those of you who have been following my journey of weight loss... I have finally reached my goal weight of 80kg. and now weigh 78kg!! That's a 52kg loss. My Journey has been bumpy but a good and successful one for sure. Thank you to all of you who continue to support and follow me.
