WOYWW and why Gorjuss range made me very angry...

Hi :)

Read on to find out why Gorjuss range from Docrafts made me angry!

But in the meantime...

On my desk today... A bit messy as it's work in progress.

My partner bought me this carousel - the best birthday gift ever!

And as always the double bed turned into storage space for unfinished creations and some crafty stash I'm selling on ebay. 

If you want to grab a bargain pop over and have a look at

Approx 5000 flat backed pearls. They have just arrived and are stunning. :) As usual I got them on Ebay. £1.95 for 1000 3mm pearls. Good price don't you think?

And now onto Gorjuss range. I have an online shop and sell some items on Etsy. Thank goodness for crafters who are wonderful and think about other people. Sam, another seller from Etsy dropped me a message today. She found out that the Gorjuss Angel Policy states:

'With Gorjuss - any handmade or digitally created projects may NOT be sold at any permanent retail locations, NOR may they be sold via any online retail destinations for instance on Ebay, Etsy or such like. Gorjuss products may be sold (as per the capped allowance specified in this Angel Policy) via Craft Fairs or for charitable purposes (provided they are not sold via the above retail channels).'

Lovely isn't it? I'm angry and upset. I have bought a lot of their papers, decoupage packs etc assuming I'd be allowed to sell them in my shop. 

Well lesson learnt! Next time read the Angel Policy first!

Still a little bit angry,

Happy WOYWW. Yes, I read about the angel policy somewhere else. Seems silly to me, as it will stop people buying the products, unless just small amounts for personal use. Bidding on some of your papers (naughty you for making me buy more!!). Ali x #26

Some angel policies are (I think) unrealistically restrictive- I can understand to a point, limiting quantities, but limiting where you can sell is just wrong. i get my flatback pearls off e-bay too- I wonder if I buy from the same lady you do?Have a great week, hugs Shaz #118 xx

Hi Maggie
I can see why you are so angry and upset do they just dream up how to stitch people up once they have bought their product. Your frame is really pretty great flowers used on it
Thanks for sharing your desk today, Happy WOYWW hope you have a great week

Live and learn. I found that out about some stuff I had put on Etsy a while back. I just don't use their products anymore! Seems to me if you use the product to make something to sell it shouldn't have the same policy that just selling the item would. I found out alot expect you to put their copyright on the card or product you make to sell....always something! Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing! Vickie #36

Sorry about the selling problem. Just let it go and forget them - entirely. I have been thinking about getting one of those carousels. Glad to hear you like yours. Bobby #124

I'm sorry about your not being able to sell Gorjuss items. The fact that you've moved stuff over to the bed means you've been having fun. :-)

G'day Maggie
Due to my sore hands I am even slower then usual at getting around but here I am at last. As I can't create even though I have time off I decided to get to as many WOYWW players as I could till Sunday :o). Love your art space and that carousel is GORGEOUS. Bummer re the Angel policy
