Thankful Thursday

This journal page was inspired by a recent piracy incident. It's also from my journal which is part of a round robin and on it's way to San Jose, CA.

I have a lot to be thankful for on this Thankful Thursday. My last post brought in an abundance of comments and e-mails. Thank you all for your support, suggestions, and encouragement to continue posting. I wish you could feel the love I have in my heart for you.
My artventures cannot remain closed in a book, stored in a camera or left to collect dust in my art space. They have to be written about and shared with all of you here in blogland. I refuse to let one bad apple spoil my fun and dictate what I should or shouldn't post for fear of piracy. This is Stampmaiden's Artventures after all and what good is an artventure if I can't share it with you, ON MY BLOG that is!
Big thanks to my special niece, Jill, from for coming to my defense and for getting the word out that piracy is not a cool thing. The response was phenomenal to say the least.

I haven't read about the piracy yet, but it's evil all the same. I'll look next. I love this page and the recipient is very lucky. Keep posting LInda, your talent is too good to hide. xxxx

I can't believe that twenty two people have left comments on her blog telling her how wrong she is, what a thief she is and yet she continues to leave YOUR ART UP on your blog.
Are you going to report her to blogger POLICE?
I think you need to do this...we are all at risk. She has to be a really dense person. She has two annonymous followers. I can't imagine she's going to get many more as long as she keeps this going.

OY! It still makes me very very angry.

Your cover art here is lovely. I love the textures you used.

Soul, thank goodness the good outnumber the evil in my life.
Gina, I intend too keep on posting. Thanks, friend.
Lynn, I know. She doesn't get it. Or refuses to. She's clueless. Thanks for your continues support.

Hola Tia Linda ~

You're very welcome. Tremendous thanks goes to Everyone who came to my blog post via Twitter, Facebook, and however else they heard about the call for action! They, in turn, got the word out via their own social networking.

Definitely log a complaint with Blogger. In a way, you're fortunate to have discovered she stole from you,therefore you can bust her. Many bloggers are not aware that their blog posts/photos have been stolen. I took a peek at the thief's blog today, and saw she posted someone's photo without a proper link/credit.

She might be dumb enough to be getting off on so many 'hits' to her blog -- but this is NOT the way to go about getting readers!

Thank you for loving my page! LOL!
