We are having problems.....

Guys,

We might be having problems. My files have mostly been traced from FREE clip art. Most of them do not even have a creator so I share them with you. Now on to my problem...

PLEASE.......

DO NOT share them as yours.
DO NOT mix-up my files and claim that it's yours.
DO NOT add several of my files together and say that you did all the hard work. By this I mean do not add 34 "suns" on your page and say that you created it. Heck don't add my sun, duck, and crayon on one page, maybe as a collage, and say it's yours.
DO NOT erase my name and post it on another site and say it's yours.
DO NOT use my works it in a swap. Even my easy files like the "sun." I am part of many Yahoo Groups swaps and WE ALL work very hard to create our works. I know I have busted my butt to do something neat in a swap. I swap it and when the swap has been shared, I share my creations with you.

I do all the hard work. Putting all those silly little boxes around corners for people to erase my name, alter the works and say it's theirs. Speeking for my friends and I..... do you know how bad our first finger and wrist hurt making these files?

Anyways, if this keeps up I'm going to close down my blog. Yes, the rotten apples might ruin it for all. The sad thing is I LOVE doing this. Just ask my really good friend Joanna, http://bainsbits.blogspot.com. Poor girl she has heard it ALL from me and I have never even met her before. Thank you Joanna. I do love you so.

So just use good judgment and let your morals win.

Lisa
P.S. You guys know who you are and I have "sneaks" all through Yahoo Groups, and other places, that are keeping an eye out.

I hope the ones that do this, stop and think about all the others they hurt.
Not me, I have more files than I could ever cut in two lifetime.
But I have been on these boards since day one.
Good and positive thoughts coming your way!

I do a bit of designing myself and I know how hard it is, but yet rewarding. It is sad that others cannot be bothered to take the time to learn how to do it themselves. Unfortunately, you are not the first to have this happen and even more unfortunately you won't be the last.
Blessings for sharing with us!

Hugs, Lisa. It is very disheartening to have dishonest people all around. But have faith, there ARE good people in this world...you included. Thank you so much for all your hard work making files. :)

Lisa,
I kindof wish the rotten apples would all stick together and leave the awesome apples alone! I for one really enjoy your files and I appreciate you sharing them!
