Some of you have sent me private messages, some of you have sent me emails, some of you have been scratching your heads, some of you may not have even noticed (which is fine of course...) ......but yes, I have removed my gallery from SIStv. I can't bring to words, (in fact, right now...I am going through differnet phrases in my head, trying to come up with the right ones)....why I have made this desicion. I was verbally ( i guess written words would be the right phrase) attacked there, chose not to "have a comeback" for what was said, for I am one that never chooses to fuel the fire. And when I mentioned this incident on my own personal blog, the person that was verbally hurting me, tried to send me a comment, stating that she was....well, for purposes of not twisting anything around, here are her words, copied from the comment she tried to leave me, "I was shocked to see I was blogged about yesterday so that put me on the defensive." I just want to state, that for those of U who took the time to read what I wrote about this situation, I never told anyone what scrap website I was referring too, and I never said who I was talking about. I just told everyone that if any of you saw things written about me, please know that it is my own personal choice not to respond, as again, I do not like to fuel fires. Yes, I know she tried to apologize, but it was an apology on a public message board, and I am not one that does certain things in public forum. Hard to explain...but, I feel (my opinion of course) that some things should be kept private and not splashed around for eveyone to see. I know it may appear that I did not accept the person's apology, because I did not respond in a public matter....but I feel that is my choice, not to display certain things in public. I know, that it may seem by writing this blog post, that I am contradicted that statement....but I wanted to explain to people why I made my decision. I am not trying to start anything, stir anything, fuel anything, I am just explaining in my own words, why I did what I did. That is all......
So, back to the title of this post. It was my choice to remove my gallery from there. It was a hard choice, because so many friends have taken time out of their days to leave me comments on my work, and for those of you that did leave me comments, I appreciate them, all of them, more than I can ever express to you. One thing that I am all about, and anyone who knows me can vouch for me, I believe there is beauty in everything created. U show me anything that U have created and I can promise U, I will see the beauty that U created and know that everything on your page came from your heart. So, I will still be on SIStv, leaving comments, welcoming new people and loving every piece of art that U create. That is who I am. I never came out to the "public" scrappy eye to have people look at my work, I came out to GIVE others LOVE on their creations. That is what I have always been about, and that is what I will continue to be. I scrap for me, as we all should, and I get inspiration from others, have learned from others, and will continue to show my support to all of U, and will never expect anything in return. That is me.
I have seen others hurt in this art that we share. I have been supportive and cried along with people that have been hurt. I have never been hurtful towards another in this art that we share, and never expected to be the one that got hurt (please don't take that as I am above being hurt, what I mean is, I never thought that anything I do or did would ever cause an attack on me.....), nor do I expect anyone else to ever be hurt. We are not children anymore, there is no fights on the playground, or in the parking lot after the bell rings. I do not like it when people are mean to each other. Don't get me wrong, I have a temper, and I do know how to use it...lol....ask my parents, or Brian, or even Adam.......ohhhhhhhhh they could tell U stories....lol....but I do not like it when people are attacked for what they believe in, or for just being themselves.
We all have something to say, be it verbally, in our typed words, in our journaling, or just through creating a page. But, I'm not going to ever fuel fires that are not worth getting the gas out for........
So, to my friends and followers on SIStv, if I have offended any of U in any way by removing my gallery from there, please know that was not my intent. Things have been building for awhile...and this was the last straw. I still will be there, *drooling* over all the beauty I see.... :) and I hope that U all will welcome my comments with open arms! :):):):):):):):) For now, I will be posting my work on here....and with that being said......lol....I want to share the latest Scrapping the Music LO I have created, for this weeks song! :):):):):):):) This week it is, "UP" by Shania Twain....loveeeeeeeeeeee her....loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that song......and QUITE appropriate for what I have written above...don't U think??? :):):):):):):):):):):):) Hope U all can play along... :)
