This seller with bird branch crap is claiming it is her original design and all others are copying her and she will pursue.

Well Brandy, you also aren’t allowed to resell crap either. Soooo…why don’t you worry about getting all the Chinese reseller sh!t out of your store and not who makes a treasury of stuff.
YOU have been reported.

Nothing in my shop is resell. Everything in my shop is handmade in some way by me in accordance with Etsy’s ToU. You can look at any shop on Etsy, and see a design that has been copied, imitated, or re-worked in some way in a another shop. That is the unfortunate nature of online selling.

I have had many designs that no one else had that are now in tens if not hundreds of shops. I get tired of having to point that out repeatedly, and having to spend time defending my work.

My last comment on the treasury (I’m getting crabby today with this reselling garbage)
TheBargainBabe from TheBargainBabe says: Just now
Oh crap! Alibaba also has your leaf necklace!
don’t even try to pretend you have come up with EVERY design on your own. Get your butt out of your head and quit being offended that someone is calling your work reseller straight-off-the-boat-from-china stuff exactly what it is.
OH, and link to the treasury itself:
