How would you feel?

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?

I think its sad that family would treat each other that way..I really don't care what other ppl think. Id ignore it.

Thank you for your input. I tend to agree....but it IS hard to ignore family more often than not.

Well, I would probably concentrate on doing things "making" things for the people who I cared about..whether their immediate family  (my family) dissed on it or not..  I would also probably stop making things for the specific people that openly dissed it.. In other words I would prioritize who should receive and/or not receive something from my "heart". If you love making something for a niece/nephew but the parents complained..I would still make something for them..the gift is for them, not  the parents..

I don't know who you are talking about, just giving you an example.   If the critisism hurts someone deeply..then perhaps they should stop making things..  It serves no purpose to make something only to feel terrible for doing it at the end and/or to make something from the heart, getting upset "while" you are making it knowing how it will be received.  This is a hard decision because it "is" family.

Well said....the last part hit the nail on the head. It is very hard to make things that get critisized by the people who should be the most supportive (in my eyes anyway) Whether the item is crap or not; family, I believe, should be the most supportive, but not "joke" about killing it and giving it to the dogs to rip up then showing off something by someone else.
