Farley's HiSsY FiT...

Not even sure how to start this post…

I am feeling really snarky

BEFORE I get into my BEEF

let me SAY thanks so much to those that joined my linky party
you make my heart SING (a little ni hao kai lan for ya)

Anywho I just was going about my daily pinterest stalking and
what do I see!!!
something familiar…

I was thinking OK OK I look at stuff on Pinterest and I get ideas…
I went to the blog the pin was taken from and
insert huge over exaggerated frowny face…


getting to my main point…

OK OK I know imitation is the best form of flattery
BUT I am sure Jennifer Aniston loved that so many people copied her hair style off of FRIENDS
thousands and thousands of girls did it… I did
BUT the hair style was called THE ANISTON CUT!!!
she got credit...
do you get where I am going?

I share and I share a lot and I want all of my LUVERLY followers to take take take… I even state way down on the right hand side of my blog
that you can take, borrow, and steal BUT give credit PUHLEASE!!!
I spend a lot of time creating and designing my freebies
I even on occasion contact digi-scrapbooking artist to get written permission to share things using their artwork

and ….

fair warning…

I should not be pinning and see my
did I mention

and it is labeled “blah blah blah”

I got this from Farley or Oh Boy 4th Grade…

because let’s face it
if that had been done
I wouldn’t be up at midnight …
OK I would be up at midnight because I watch BB after dark
BUT I would not be up writing this I could still be PINNING!!!

so here it is…

I am going to lay it out…


if you see something on here that you like and you want to make the same thing but let’s say you want to have a turtle background instead of the background I used
(it was not a turtle background… all backgrounds will remain anonymous to protect the guilty)
and let’s say you copy my phrasing word for word for word and
word word word word word word and word
and you copy my style
then you need to give me credit
I am REALLY OK FINE with you copying me with credit given…
I give credit when-ever I can and I try my DARNDEST to make sure I do
is darndest a word… not sure

you just changed the background
that is all you did…
and then you go and sell it!!!


OH NO that is just wrong.
cone of shame WRONG (a little UP for ya)
or BOX of Shame ( a litte Despicable Me for ya)

I am upset about this…
I will take this and learn something from it!!!
& get over it!!!

maybe not today but I will get over this…
(maybe tomorrow’s purchase of my new teacher’s tote will help me get over it…maybe)

I realize this does not pertain to 99.999999999999999% but but but but
I felt it necessary to say to that less than 1%... I am watching you!!!
I got my ANGRY TEACHER FACE ON and I am watching you

now back to BB after dark and

I am letting my MOM
look at this before I send it
because my MAMA is MAD too!!!
and she is a retired teacher and
and she gets my SNARK-asm (snarky + sarcasm)
and she will tell me if this is blog worthy
(she stalks me) & i {puffy} heart that!!!
so if your reading this it is also Mama Approved!!!

and and and if you want to KNOW what my new tote is…
go google Consuela totes…
UMMMMMM I am feeling better already
thinking of my new TOTE!!!
I got the GRANDE teal one…
((((SIGHING in Consuela BLISS))))

thanks for making it through my hissy fit!!!
I am feeling MUCH better!!!

 and to end on a HAPPY HAPPY NOTE!!!
(chorus singing in background)
THANKS to all that LINKED up
I think I am going to do that linky party once a month!!! YAY

(thinking happy thoughts * CONSUELA TOTE * entering into a happy place)


  1. That stinks! I feel like I'm hearing a lot about this kind of thing lately...what a bummer!

    BTW, as I was reading {and empathizing} I was also wondering, "ooh, a new teacher tote, I wonder what she's talking about?!". So glad you went on to tell all about it!!!

    Sorry about your rough night! :(

  2. Your Mama is watching....LOL

  3. Well on a bright note...your tote is beautiful. Just wanted you to know that I made a frame to post your We Do in my classroom...love it. Thanks!

  4. Getting burned is the worst! >:(

    Sadly, I know exactly how you feel because it's happened to me many times! Someone actually e-mailed me once to ask permission to slightly alter a file I had shared with her in WORD and then SELL IT on TPT! Really?!

    Think happy tote thoughts and know the rest of us love your creativity!

    Happy Friday!

    Mrs. Bainbridge's Blog

  5. I am so sorry this happened! I have seen several blogs mention PinInterest lately but I am not really sure what it is- yet. Thank you for sharing your ideas and work!

    Primary Connections

  6. That does stink! I guess with all of the blogs, Pinterest, Facebook, etc. out there, it is bound to happen, but you should still get some sort of credit for your hard work!

    Yay for the tote :)

  7. I am sorry that you had to deal with that. :( I was actually inspired to blog by wonderful teacher like you, who are willing to share! I haven't shared many things YET, because I'm not certain I am up to the correct level of cuteness yet - lol

    On another bright note (besides your adorable note) you are an awesome writer! Your writing is FULL of VOICE -- you made me feel it too! So kuddos to you and THANKS FOR BEING A GOOD SHARER!!!


  8. I am so aorry that this has happened to you. I know how much time it takes to create something. I am new to this whole blogging thing and don't really get how to upload creations. But I do enjoy the fruits of those of you who do. I would never dream of not giving credit.

    I just want to say thank you for your sharing heart. I hope that this does not happen again.

    Good for you for posting this. It is important to call out bad behavior so that those who are responsible usnderstand that it is not appropriate.


  9. BOOOOOOO!! I'm sorry Meg. How upseting!! Hang in there sister and know that you will come out on top in the end!!! :) I'm going to check out your new teacher tote,eeehhh!!! I'm already liking that it's teal!!!:) Keep doin what your doin, because I think YOU ROCK! :)

  10. That is really annoying! I hate that something like that happened to you. I hope your tote makes your day brighter! Know that we all love you and your ideas in here bloggy land!

  11. Stink stinkity stink! You are SO full of class for protecting the identity of the poacher... I can't say I would do the same. Somebody out there needs to a) get a life (their own), and b) learn some manners!

    Anyway, I just love your blog. It's the first one (out of a LONG list) that I check. My daughter always wants to see it, too!

    Stay positive!

  12. This is your M-a-m-m-a...(feeling the cheer from Goldie Hawn's movie~Wildcats) LOL....so, I think I need a Copper Annie pic on here...remember when she "read" some of your letters? I'm needing that pic in your blog. Thanks...twas my first granddog after all. ((puffy heart)) her!

  13. Farley (yes, I still LOVE your last name and I'm STILL jealous because I married Oldham. Not only is it ham, it's OLD ham. Gross!) this sucks! This just happened to Fran over at Kindergarten Crayons. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? Please don't let this stop you from sharing your amazing stuff. And you ARE nice for not telling us who did this but the stinker in me wants you to tell us so that we can all make sure we're not following her. Or if we are, we could all unfollow her. But that's just the stinker in me. My halo goes a bit crooked from time to time.

    On another note, this is the first summer I have not had Showtime to watch BB After Dark. It is KILLING me and the mister. :) I am SOOOOO glad Brendan is gone. I really enjoyed watching Rachel cry AND panic at the HOH competition. Ha! :) Who are you rooting for?

    I'm going to subscribe to this post (comments, etc) so that if you reply, I can see it. But no pressure or anything. I definitely don't want to get you all riled up if you're over it now. :)

    Have a happy weekend and enjoy your tote!!!!!!

    A Teeny Tiny Teacher

  14. Thanks everyone for your kind words!!! I didn't get my tote b/c they sent the wrong one :(
    but it is on its way... YAY
    Kristen... you are too funny..I really wanted to rat them out BUT I needed good karma for my 1st week back and I'm keeping it hush!!! *wink* anyways I love Jeff and Jordan but wouldn't mind if Shelly won. After Dark is really good tonight BUT I need to get back into a better bed time routine...Yeah right!!! I hope you have a great weekend too!!! :)
