How would you feel *PIOG*

How would you feel if you made things and your family mocked you for making them but show off your niece/nephew proudly like its the cutest thing ever wearing something almost identical to what you make, that was made by someone else?

Personally I would feel slapped in the face and kinda of sad to call them family...

How about you and why?

it is.....very much so actually...I know I shouldn't let it bother me but if it was anyone else it wouldn't....but its my brother....and mainly my SIL....this is becoming a constant problem lately and I don't know how to deal with it to be honest.

Quoting ceciliam:

Yes, that would be hurtful.

So, they are mocking your stuff? Not right! I would stop showing them things you make....forget them!

yea, I crochet the angry birds hats and when I first posted them for everyone to see on my FB my SIL was like "ACK kill it kill it" and talking about giving them to the dogs to chew on. This morning she posts a pic of my nephew wearing a very similar hat to the ones I make thanking the person who made it/got it for him and commenting how cute. Now granted it could have just been to acknowledge the person, but knowing them I don't think that was the only reason. Kinda felt like I was stabbed.

Crystal, family relationships can just be toxic and it's terrible.  It sounds to me that she did it deliberately in a passive-aggressive manner, and she is the one with issues.  Next time she mocks your stuff, casually mention how much $$$ you make from your crafts, even if its a lie.  Just to make a point.

THANKYOU!!! I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was called! I'm seriously surrounded by it too my step dad is, my sil is, my brother is just a down right asshat sometimes to your face, but then uses the military cop out as an excuse....I just want to move away to a little shack...as long as it has running water and internet we'll be fine!
