  3. Salamat, Beth!!! Tuwang-tuwa akong makita ang "bahay" mo. Yung mga poncho mo yun ang gustong pagawa sa kin ng sister ko, kaso wala pa kong time ;)

  5. I am so sorry for what is happening to you Mimi and that someone would take advantage of you like that. I know it happens, though. I'm just sorry it happened to you.

  6. Thank you for your support, as always Tina! You've known this already, but I just want more people to be aware.

  7. This is the original entry which I edited on my post. But I'm putting it here, in case anyone wants to know. And if you want to challenge me to show proof, I can. Just email me.

    This is an open letter to another Filipina, not a friend of mine. You know who you are.
    Why would I write a letter to you in the first place and waste my precious time and blog space? Well, better late than never, I owe this to myself.
    "Now what is the issue?" you would probably cooly ask, as I know you wont admit to having offended me. I have told you clearly before, "you wouldnt want it done to you, yet you did it to me"! You dont know how much anxiety and heartache you caused me last year, let alone I was already feeling ignored being new in blogging and at the forums. I was trying to work my way into my thread business and sharing my crochet, doing it patiently, and HONESTLY and slowly, NO SHORTCUTS. And what did you do? YOU JUST STOLE MY PHOTOS instead of going out and getting your own color cards, taking a photo of it yourself, uploading it to your computer, uploading it to your imagehost, and posting it on your blog, because that is what I did! Now tell me was it worth it? You might have gotten more customers and more money from that. ARE YOU HAPPY?
    In doing that you have proven who you really are. I was so glad you didnt pretend to be my friend, otherwise I would have been duped. Because I am such a loyal friend and I probably would have shared some secrets with you.
    I hope you get rid of your CRAB MENTALITY and keep in mind that HONESTY is always the best policy.
    Certainly, you didnt have to like me or be supportive of me - you can choose to ignore me if that makes you happy. But you dont have any right to use my photos as your own, especially for business purpose.

  10. Sorry about this all Mimi! I know that it is still bothering you! Hopefully this letter you wrote has released some of your pent up disappointments and you can show that you are the better person by walking away and taking it as a lesson learned!

  11. Thank you, Kimberly, I'll keep that in mind :)
    Maybe its just me, but we certainly dont imagine thieves. We know they exist when they have with them something that belongs to us.
    Thank you for your kind words and talking to me, that means so much!

  15. Thanks Raquel! I'm very happy to know that friends care for me ;) Maybe I just needed to be validated, but aside from that I always hated anyone taking advantage of anybody.
