Well, I've been asked what happened to all my stuff here on the blog.  What has happened is I was contacted by an artist who designs and sells digital stamps here on the internet about some of my images.  Evidently, I had colored several of her images and had them posted here and even with the watermark I was using, people were able to get rid of the watermark and were using my colorings as their own images.  Would you believe people even take images and sell them as their own on eBay?  'Cause I sure didn't!  Honestly, I never thought to even look.

Now, this artist's TOU stated you couldn't post her images online except in their finished state.  Technically, the images I posted were in their finished state because I just color them, I don't use them on cards or scrapbooks.  So, to keep everyone happy and me out of trouble, I've just removed everything, including my own personal photos.  Maybe one day I"ll find something to post here that doesn't break any rules.

Sorry to hear that happened to you. These artists are vicious which I have come to learn myself. But dont give up. Keep coloring in moderation and post them with a colored watermark. That's all you have to do. You don't have to do anything further to protect yourself. Don't stop doing what you enjoy.

Oh, I am so very sorry! I found something on Pinterest you had colored that was a beautiful shade of pink (which I'm trying to get better)...only to find this last post. I agree - don't stop enjoying coloring and what you do beautifully! (Oh, the "joys" of the internet at times!) Hugs! Cheryl

Found another! If you can tell me what colors you use to make the soft powdery pink, I hope you'll visit my blog and email me! Thanks!!
