*sigh*

So, my blanket listings were removed from Etsy because Taggies complained about several sellers infringing on their Trademark. That’s that. I could fight it, but I’m not going to. There are a ton of other venders on Etsy selling baby taggie-style items and I could point them out to Etsy and to Taggies in my defense, but I’m not going to. So, I will leave the baby shoes listings up until they sell or expire, but I’m going to put the shop on the back burner for now. I don’t have the time or money to start over with new ideas at this time, PLUS I don’t think I’ve mentioned yet that I have gone back to school! I have five years under my belt and now is the time for me to finish. I’m very excited about it, I found a great school online that is perfect for me, so for now, that’s going to be consuming much of my spare time.

SO, these blankets will still be available to friends and family, so if you are interested in one, contact me directly. And please don’t be upset with Etsy over this and do continue to support Handmade!

Here is something to be happy about–my Valentines Day daisies from Casey are still beautiful. It’s the little things 🙂

  1. I am so proud of you. I know this was a hard decision and I know you were so disappointed last night. I still think someone should be made aware of the fact that others are still selling the same thing… but perhaps, with everything else on your plate right now, you don't need the headache of going to bat for this. I might just have to buy one of these blankets for the new addition that will soon be in our family 🙂

  2. Bummer! I have been wanting to sell items in the shop but for the same reasons you are going through, are the same reasons I'm hesitant about it. Good luck with your schooling. Isn't great you can take online classes!
