TKS for all your work and freebies to us!
It is Miss Veronika that gives us the free designs.
As moderators, we are glad to help her. We hope it gives her time with her family and time to digitize all those free designs.
I hear you loud and clear........it is so difficult to say no, and I always feel guilty for not helping someone out, then it occurs to me that I would be enabling the behavior of expecting something for nothing, by saying yes, so I am learning that "no" word as well......Kudo's to you for not being taken advantage of........I can't imagine the unappreciative things that all the moderators have to endure...I can only hope you all know how much your fair and courteous moderating is appreciated...you girls all rock!!!
Thank you! I am certain many ask you for free things and designs too. How is anyone supposed to pay for keeping an online presence?
Gratitude is a flower that doesn't sprout in everybody's garden, I'm afraid.
Thankfully there are people like you that make up for the others' gardens
You are right: sometimes it's hard to say no, in special when family or friends are involved.....
And I am thankful that you are a special Cute member, your presence and input here on Cute, your work together with miss Veronika and the other moderators make this Cute site such a wonderful community. It makes me happy to be able to be a part of this Cute family. Hugs/love gerry
You are always so kind -- HUGS!!!
I think the hardest word to say is NO, and especially neighbours whom you will see often. BUT no is easy, as there will be no repercussion if they did not like the finished article or changed their mind on what they wanted. You did well to say no, it does get easier. Sandra.
Thank you. I hadn't thought about the repercussions of the finished article.
Well done it's the hardest thing to do but I also find it hard to ask for anything and it's always a shock to me when people do not even say thank you you did great..
I think this may have been one of those cases.
Saying "No" is always hard - but it does get easier after that first time!
I do hope it starts getting easier...I've tried it before without any relief in sight.
That is the exact reason I refuse to do alterations in clothing for people. They want it for nothing and they are never happy with the end result. I do my own alterations and my sweeties and no one else 's. Kay
I refuse to do alterations too -- but that is because I dislike doing them for anyone. It makes it easier to say no if you don't like the work involved. ;)
Well done for saying no when you needed to. Sometimes that is one of the hardest things to do.
some times I think people who do not do this work have no idea how time consuming a job can be.
She did not understand...
If you work for free or even cheap word gets around and soon everyone will come knocking on your door. Good for you for saying no. Remember no one can walk on you unless you let them, Don't be their doormat
This is so true and one of the main reasons I needed to say no.
I am so glad you were able to make this decision to say no...I know just how hard that is as I have a very hard time saying no...especially to those I know who are taking advantage...some say in my family I am a "pleaser" and they know how hard it is for me to say no...but that does not stop them from asking...good for you...
At least I know I am in good company :)
