A Little Rant

I am tired of people asking me for my "secrets" on how I paint my ornaments or anything else I create! Seriously....They are not really secrets, since I figured them out on my own. But I am NOT sharing them with anyone. This is a way for me to make a little $, so why would I share that? I had someone that is a very distant relative, who I just added to my fb friends & have never even gotten a "hello" from, send me a list of questions about how to paint & create certain things, since she wants to do it too. I told her I don't share my secrets. The nerve. I mean really? I'm sure she didn't mean anything by it & maybe I should take it as a compliment. But it just got under my skin. And it's not the first time I've been asked for my "secrets." I am not some brilliant artist or anything, I taught myself....Yes! Taught myself everything I know. So, if anyone wants to know....They can go figure it out themselves, just like I did. Honestly, some people annoy the crap outta me.  It's not a prideful thing for me either, it's just common courtesy. I just wouldn't ask someone that kinda stuff. If I saw something I wanted to duplicate, I would research it & do it myself. Maybe that's just me though. Sorry, but I had to let off some steam.

  2. That would bother me too. It is one thing if it was something you just did for the heck of it and gave them away, but another when you are doing it to earn some extra $$$. I see stuff all the time I want to duplicate, but I just examine it closely and figure it out.

  3. You go girl. I'm right behind you, although I don't have any talents that people want to take from me.
