so yesterday was a BAD day for me...

anyone who knows me knows that I'm a huge people pleaser and hate to hurt feelers. I'm a Cancer..what can I say? But yesterday was just draining. First off...I had been getting some comments about somethings (sorry so vague)...so finally got up the courage to do a really nice message to this person to just kinda point it out....it took a LOT of me to even get to that point. But now...I'm the bad guy. How does that happen?? So now I feel like complete and utter crap (even though I really shouldn't I don't think) because of the response I received that made it seem like I was being mean. *sigh*


then...I resigned my position at the scrapbook store. I have lots of reasons...but mainly is because the owner informed me (which she has told me off and on for years) that her customers call and complain about me? (okay..so maybe I AM a bad guy!!). I really have a hard time believing that many people can complain about me when I'm a total hermit..I don't TALK to anyone...I would NEVER ignore a customer at a frenzy because I LOVE frenzy's and being able to visit with the customers and ooh and ahh over their recent work. One even said I was arrogant! HA! I told my husband that and he said...honey...you have got to be the most humble person I know. But it literally has made me sick to my stomache and I don't even want to go into that store with the thought that someone else might call and complain. *sigh* Sucks. I just don't get it...I really don't.



But today is a new day...the sun will come out tomorrow! :) *giggle* And I can get through this. I actually have decided that I really want to start promoting my ACBailey a little bit..maybe get some classes and crops together of my own (and NO..I will not be soliciting the store's customers...although that was another thing that was brought to my attention..which I would NEVER do because I think it's morally wrong). We'll see how it goes. Who knows..I might not get anyone to show up since all they do is complain about me. Am I totally feeling sorry for myself or what?? :)



And if you got this far..thanks for listening to me WHINE. Good grief.



But I did list this last night on Etsy. I actually love how it turned out. But please do give me feedback...do you think the price is too high? Too low? Would you buy it?? (not that you have to but you know what I mean!!). Tonight I will upload some singles like the blossom bitties, some jumbo photo corners and hopefully some tags!! And don't forget to comment for your entry in the drawing. :) Oh and don't forget to check out the sidebar...I have some new mini etsy things up including some things from my fav shops!! And tonight I will have a HAPPY post. :)

Jenn - THAT SUCKS!!! We've never met in person, but I have a hard time believing that you could be arrogant or mean to anyone. Maybe this is just a sign that you should be focusing more on your etsy & other things.

Dude, what can I say?? I have NO IDEA what those people are on about. You are the most supportive, sweet and caring person that I know. When I was just starting out with scrapping YOU were the only person at *that* DT who even took the time to speak to me. You taught me everything I know and I wanna deck those women who say mean things about you...
i am FUMING over here!!!!
Forget about those idiots - they are not worth it and you are wroith a hundred of each of them.
Please, do NOT ever change. You are fabulous the way you are and everyone who says otherwise will have me to deal with

Those people are full of crap....or she is lying, who knows. Sorry you had such a bad day!

I sure hope it gets better for you.

That is terrible. I also haven't met you in person and you have been totally sweet and helpful and great to me. And I agree...maybe it was a sign that you should be focusing on something else right now.
Cheer up...it's their loss and our gain!

PS...
I sent you and email with my project from the girl kit.

I'm sorry that so many other people have so many issues...and that they all seem to be piling on at the same time. You are humble, and sweet, and a people pleaser! ;)
And that kit is huge! It could do 4 pages worth! The price is fine...tons of time and detail went into it, I can tell. And the colors are awesome!
