STOLEN FILES!

OK......so as I was posting this entry I realized that this had already been downloaded 7 times...how can this be?? I have four CTs that download this file and then NO ONE should have access to it. I just don't get how someone could go into a personal 4-share account and steal files....?? I love designing to have paper and elements that match my pictures, and being able to share them with you is wonderful. BUT this is a pretty sad deal, and I question if its worth the effort to design kits (*FOR FREE*) if this is going to happen. I've been pondering the thought of not designing anymore and this is kinda my breaking point. SO......I'm going to slow 'er down and kits will be released every couple of weeks, if that. I know I've just started on the designing journey but this has made me realize 3 important things:
1. To be greatful that so many hard working designers share their kits for free!!
2. To always post a thank you for all their hard work....if you're going to download and use their creations, don't you just think its polite to thank them for hours and hours they spent on it. (So many times I'll download something and it will say downloaded 457 time or so :o) and then there will be 12 comments....wow! Pretty sad!)
3. My family is more important than what I'm releasing each week to you for free. I spend at least 3 sometimes up to 15 hours on each kit throughout the week. Thats a whole lot of time that I could be investing in my little ones and spending with my family. :o)
SO.....with that all said, this isn't the end of designing for JenasisDesign (because I love it) but will be a turning point and the kit releases will be more random. I'm going to spend more PS time creating what means the most to me and that is LOs of my sweet family. Hope y'all understand!! Thanks for all your support!
Here are the elements for Silly Star..... Enjoy! And if you download don't forget to say thanks...LOL!! :o)

  11. Thanks for this awesome kit, and I'm so sorry about the stealing. I said the same to another designer that also had a kit stolen. It's too bad that things like this have to happen to people who are so kind to share. Thanks again for the beautiful kit!

  12. I'm sorry to hear that your files were stolen. I know I'm not always good at remembering to comment. But I greatly appreciate the generosity of designers like you, its what got me started on digital scrapbooking. Also, I love this kit, it fits perfectly with some of the pics I have been needing to scrapbook for a while!

  14. Ok, so I'm another who sometimes forgets to comment...what poor manners I have...I think that it's something that too many of us don't think about, or just take for granted. I can't believe at all, however, that people would steal your work before you are ready to release it! Poor manners are not appropriate, and theft is beyond: totally unacceptable! Thanks for the hard work you do, and for putting those of us who forget our manners in our place. Sometimes, i just need a reminder.

    Have a wonderful week!

  15. I'm new to digi-scrapping, and I just started downloading free kits last week, from you a few other places. I'm unaware of the etiquette involved, but I'm really sorry that this happened to you...it sucks! However, I really like your stuff (what I've seen so far). It's really cute!

  21. Feel so sorry to hear about the problems you're having, but I've read this a lot of times in other blogs today, too - what kind of people's are these, who do not respect the own of others...

    But anyway - i love your work an hope you will be sharing it again in future.
