Xmas code

I sent out a xmas code that gave everyone on the store subscription list a free 5 dollar coupon for the store. This was a little thankyou for the year with me and I was saddened to find that quite a few people were creating accounts and using the code that had never even been to the store before nor were they on the list that these codes were sent out to. After some research it was discovered that the codes were being shared through various yahoo groups and as such I have had to cancel the codes. If you received the email from me and would still like to make use of the gift that I sent out please forward the original email back to me and Ill send you a new personalized code that will be good for one use for yourself only. I appologize  if this causes a bit of inconvenience but its unfortunate just the same. Hugs

  1. I had a similar thing happen when I was designing. :( Happy holidays to you, despite the scrooges! And thank you for all the gorgeous freebies you give out, as well. It's sad that people think they need steal, when they're given so much for free to begin with!

  2. People are what they are. I dont let it get to me. Not really mad just disappointed cause it does ruin the fun for so many others. But regardless im not letting it ruin this. Still gonna play along just gonna have to be a person to person basis! Why did you stop designing???

  3. Wow, I guess it's true that no good deed goes unpunished. Thank you so much for the coupon. That was a great gift to those of us who truly appreciate your work -- and the bargains you already provide! Thanks again and Merry Christmas, Misty.

  4. I sometimes can not believe the things that some people do. I'm sorry that this happened to you. It's always just 1 person who will wreck it for the rest of us. Thank you for your generosity all though the year and for today gift. I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  5. I am so sorry to read this. It's absurd that people have done this to such an ultra-generous designer like yourself. I hope you don't let it hurt you. God bless you for your generosity and may this be a wonderful year for you!

  6. I still do a little here and there but mostly just for fun ~ I stopped because of time stuff - and lack thereof! :)

  7. Happy Holiday to You and Yours and all the best in the New Year. Thank you for another fantastic year.

    Oh, which store did you send the coupon out from, your personal store? I buy your stuff over at Katie's. I just got her gift this morning :) Will you be sending out any coupons for your stuff over at Katie's?

    I was wondering if you can stop sign ups during coupon time. Wouldn't that be great :)

    I am looking forward to your next kit.

    Have a safe and snow-riffic winter.

  8. The code I sent out was for my personal store. I mentioned it to Katie and she thought it would be a neat thing to do for all her customers as well so she also sent something out for everyone on her newsletter list. I wont be sending a coupon for xmas through her store no. We actually were talking about this. Everyone has been so over the moon with the suprise coupons that we wanted to do this again and we are planning to install a gallery and forum in the near future linking the stores and run contests each month and have store prizes and its all in the brainstorming stage but will be awesome when we get something together you know? There is a program module I can install to fully control the use of the coupons and we are gonna install this in our stores before we go any further. Its kinda sad that we would even need to do that but there is no reason why everyone else should have to miss out cause of a few bad apples so it will all fall together soon. Cant wait!!!!

  14. I know!!! The holiday season is just madness. I spent about a decade overseas and I always came back to the states at christmas cause I missed it but now that I live here again I kinda miss the mellow seasons back over there! LOL But some things cannot be imitated and christmas just isnt the same anywhere else! My lil guy is almost 2 and its gonna be so awesome to see what he does with all his gifts! LOL Freaking Katie (just so scrappy)sent his like 6 packages for Christmas this year. Im like wow spoil him much?! LOL Gotta love the holidays

  16. BOO!!! So sorry Misty!! HUGS to you!! I am so sick and tired of people stealing, and even worse claiming our work is their own!!! COME ON people we charge so VERY little for what we do for you!! Each kit, and all the extras we make for you all…take hours and hours for us to put together for you. We do it because we love it! AND because YOU LOVE it!! To the bad apples...DON'T ruin all that by being on the "naughty list"!!!! To the good, and honest people out there…WE LOVE YOU!! Merry Christmas!!
