I have since heard from both the company and the consultant involved.
I have to say that the consultant did everything right, the company asked me if I wanted the workshop removed or if I wanted my name added to the marketing catalog (this was called the "Instructions Sheet" for consultants to download, however it was visible to all.
I advised the company that it looked like the consultant didn't do anything wrong and I am happy for her to host the workshop based on my ink storage unit (the consultant has made minor changes to it from my original design). My understanding is that there was miscommunication at work.
So all is okay with the world now :)
I have since dug deeper into my post on this storage unit and have realised that I okayed this lady to host a workshop on the storage unit. The lady also said that she would acknowledge my name as the designer, however I do not see anywhere on the company's catalogue that I am the designer, only that this lady "created" the unit. So I don't know what to think. Has this lady informed the company and they choose to ignore it? I have emailed the company and am awaiting a response. I will update this post if/when I receive a reply.
Question for you all - would love to know your thoughts on this please:
Remember how I DESIGNED & CREATED the Distress Ink Storage Unit
back in September last year? Remember how I put it out there -
instructions and all - for anyone who wanted to make it for themselves?
Was it remiss of me to not to add "please do not sell the design by way of a Scrapbooking Company class"???
Yes, I have just been informed by Kylie Powell
(Shop and Crop Scrapbooking) that someone told her that they had seen
this distress ink storage unit up for a class by a certain scrapbooking
company and that this must have been where Jenny (me) came up with the
idea) - WRONG!
The consultant for this scrapbooking company has
mentioned that she got the design from my blog via Pinterest but on the
scrapbooking company's web site Master Class Workshops - Beyond the Page
Catalogue & that it was "created" by this consultant ? ?
Maybe she has changed the way in which she built it???
See for yourself and please let me know your thoughts on this.
