~Nastyness in the scrappy world!~

I saw this on Sasha's blog last week, about people who leave rude nasty comments on people's work or blogs, and man it happened to me this week!
Sasha's Post about talking Smack!

Normally I would not even flinch but it was a direct insult to my children.
When someone insults me I don't even reply, I figure I cannot argue with their anger...

It just shocks me because for the most part in scrapbooking and crafts in general I have found so much love and generosity, and I try to do react with 150% love back!
I would never even consider insulting someone's work let alone their family!


Every scrap page is a work of LOVE and heart goes into it!
I think it's so sad that some people resort to these methods of anger and rudeness

It's just very sad. And it's hurtful to people like me who would never even think of behaving in this manner. But I guess that is the point, just to hurt.

So if you don't like me or my work! I am 100% OK with that! Not everyone likes my style. So I say to you, click out! Don't come in here then! Just click on your own page or someone you love!
It's ok I think you will be happier without that nastiness!
Let me leave you with some beautiful images, I worked on yesterday!

Have a beautiful Day ~Pinky~

Pinky: There are a lot of people that want to be you and where you are in your life. Don't allow them ANY space in your world...You are a wonderful scrapper, business person and friend. If this is the only way the low life can get attention, ( by taking jabs at your kids? for God's sake!) PLEASE send her my way...I miss a good fight and have the time to go a few rounds of mental gymnastics with her! Leaving my link so the stalker can find me... Gina

Everyone's scrapping style is different. I think when someone leaves a negative comment about something that you know is not critisizm, then they are just plain jealous/envious of your work.
This is Ann from Pamela's group on myspace. :)

hey girl, if someone left you mean comments they have no idea what the hell they are talking about. You are one heck of a scrapper! When I open my google reader yours is the first one I check.

Hi there, just found your blog from tally scraps. I too have had some nasty comments so know where you are coming from - no need for it at all. I love your lo's so keep on keeping on :-)

Holly said...

I always love your work. So sorry you had to deal with those sorts of comments, especially about your boys who I think are pretty cool little guys.

Don't let em getcha down... they don't have anything better to do with their time... that's gotta suck for them!! lol

scraphag said...

wow Cristal, I just read this. I can't imagine being that much of an a@@. Just know that the love, respect and admiration WAY outweigh the petty remark makers. You are loved. I know its easy to focus on the negative-----but feel our love and support when you have those thoughts and craft on. And i love that phrase CLICK OFF!

Cee said...

How dare anyone leave negative comments on someone's blog, muchless talking about children?... Wth is this world coming to?.... If you dont like it, then click off the page... You know its jealous people who do this.. someone who dont consider their work as nice as yours or as personal, so they feel the need to lash at someone else... so think of it as a compliment.. they took time out of THEIR lives to type something nasty... nothing off your back... it was their time..not yours...

As for me... I think you rock, but of course you know that already.... Unless they are in front of you saying something derogatory dont sweat the small stuff girl!!!!!! now if they do.... gimme a call, i'll help you kick A$$...... lol....

Pinky - pay no attention to people like that. Your work is fabulous!!!

JUST BE YOU!!! That all that matters!!

Hugs!!

Denise - FL said...

Hey girlfriend - I agree with you and everyone that commented here. You have to be a real low life to do something like that...

Don't sweat the small stuff. It will come back and haunt them one day!!

Sarah said...

I can't believe that people are so mean sometimes. Just know that the people that count don't do and say mean, ugly things.

I absolutely LOVE the winter preparedness LO!! Kids do the funniest things. I love that the mittens are *just* in the right position! lol So cute!

southernbellescrapper said...

Well said gf! I totally agree! Love ya!

Peg said...

Well, good grief! I love your work! I can't understand why someone would do this. It just makes no sense. It made me laugh when I saw someone dislikes my blog, but to tell someone they dislike your work is just utterly ridiculous.

Jenster said...

Pinky, I love the post you left on Sasha's blog. So true! Thanks for taking the high road and not stooping to some pathetic people's level.

I have a lot of pity for people who hate on others. Not enough pity that I won't kick their asses, but pity all the same. I wouldn't want to be them.
