Sarcasm Talks ©opyrights

In this extremely overdue post, Sarcasm talks copyrights, more specifically about being bullied by other like-minded beaders and crafters who are (like I am on most subjects) a little confused by copyrights and how they apply to their particular craft. You all (hopefully!) read my reviews of the bead boards I did a while ago, and how two particular makers of said beading tool has been sending ummmm well frankly, threats in the form of emails, public social media posts, you get the drift, threatening legal action, claiming that the bead board was originally their own idea, yours are just knock-offs, yada, yada, yada. I really owe all of you apologies for not posting in such a long while, but I am having some pretty intense health issues, to the point that I am unable to even beading on a regular basis .

Sarcasm has no words

Sarcasm designs a pattern

My week has been a week of pure Gamma love. What is Gamma love? Gamma love is loving your grandbabies unconditionally at any given time. This week I had my 11 month old Doodlebug Adalyn for 5 straight days (and nights) while she was SICK, SICK, SICK!

Sarcasm faces a challenge

So every month for the last few months I have been participating in the Dry Gulch Beads & Jewelry monthly color design challenge. You can find this month’s challenge here. They post a color pallete every month and you have to design something amazing using those colors. I love the challenge of finding something that will fit withing the color parameters, and they are generous enough to award a $50 gift certificate to their 1st place pick, and a $25 gift certificate to 2nd, to be used in their store or website. This month’s challenge was unique in that it was all one color family. Simple, right? Nooooooo. I had to make it difficult, and pull out every stinking green shade of bead, gemstone, ribbon, etc. that I owned and try and put them ALL together. Then, while checking out a newer beading technique I had been reading about over … Read more
