I recently became aware of a copycat stealing Sandie's idea to make and sell handmade paper daisies. This person was a follower of Sandie's blog, and blatantly stole Sandie's idea and started her own business creating the same style of flowers, with very similar packaging and identical prices. Funnily enough, after we all started inundating her blog and facebook page with comments (which she refuses to publish) she is no longer a follower of Sandie's blog. Good riddance.
Some people obviously have no respect for other people's ideas. Certainly, it isn't a crime to immitate something that someone else has made - I have a daisy wheel and paper string myself - but it is certainly unethical to use that idea and encroach on someone else's territory. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean that you SHOULD!
So, I am putting a link on my blog to Sandie's wholesale daisies blog. Support the original and the best - Handmade Daisies by Sandie.
