I don't make a habit of being negative in my fun, beautiful, lovely, happy world. My life is wonderful, but sometimes someone comes along and makes that life a little sad for a while.
This blog is a great thing for me, it means I can express myself, and I hope you will lend me an ear for a while.
My aim for Vintage Magpie was simple...to follow my bliss and to live my dreams. But last night I found something that has hurt me, made me sad, made me angry.
Basically someone has stolen Vintage Magpie's, words, work, and style... I feel abused, I feel like someone has taken my baby and slapped their face, right in front of my eyes. This beautiful thing I have created and worked so hard for...my dream.
One woman who doesn't have the ability to be original or to put in any hard work. One woman who claims she is creative...
How can you be creative and offer a "unique" bouquet? How can you make a brides day when you know in your heart that the work you have "created" is a lie and a blatant copy?
I really do not understand, do you not have a conscience?
You say you have a creative flair... what for...copying? Do you not have any ideas of your own? After 20 years of floristry I find that hard to believe... I feel ashamed for you... can you not come up with a style of your own? Or have you always pinched other talented peoples ideas?
That page you have 'cut and pasted' was months of my work. I spent days coming up with just the right words to express my work... they are my words NOT yours.
I hope your brides come to understand that you are nothing short of a plagiarist, a copy cat, and in my eyes, a down right low and dishonest person.
In your stupidity you have hurt and upset someone you don't even know, but someone who you obviously admire...
Vintage Magpie is my world and I will fight for my baby. I'm proud of my work and know that the Love and Passion that I put into my bouquets will ALWAYS out~shine, out~sparkle, be more chic and ooze more style than any lame attempt to copy.
My conscience is clean, lovely and 100% Vintage Magpie.
