Exclamation To the person who has my yarn….

I sent you yarn 4 months ago. You have yet to complete the agreed upon project, have not responded to my messages, and while you have been on this board in the last month and posting actively, your PM box is now full.

Please contact me. I would like the prompt return of my materials. Thank you.

    SHAME SHAME SHAME ON YOU! GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER! Act like a woman, and let this mama have her yarn back already! UGH.

    I cannot BELIEVE she is still allowed to do business. How pitiful.

    POLL: What is it that you don’t like or annoys you about Christians? [for research]
    Hey mamas! I’m doing some research for my pastor. Would you mind participating and discussing if you’d like in my poll/discussion?

    You can choose more than one answer.

    If you are not a Christian what annoys you or what don’t you like about Christians?
    If you are a Christian and are still annoyed… feel free to answer as well.

    Also, it’s not in the poll but would you mind posting as well and saying what spiritual avenue you follow [if any]…example, atheist, Buddhist, Wiccan, etc.

    Also feel free to add what we as Christians could do better in your opinion so that people would be more inclined to listen to our message.

    Thanks!! I’m looking forward to reading the responses!

    But that’s a BG! Don’t you know that there is a shortage of those? I mean, it isn’t like those are mass produced and available everywhere, right? And besides…her baby didn’t POOP in it!

  9. mksmommy says:

    ROFLMAO It bothers me when ppl are ignorant to the current market like that seller is then they bitch about being called on their price.

  10. AshleyB says:

    OMG #7, is that a mog? SOO cute!

  11. mksmommy says:

    Yup thats Mog! Im a bit moogle obsessed. They are just so cute!

  12. Yup says:

    OP only wants the yarn back so she can resell it on FSOT, like she does everything else she really, really has to have & love.

  13. AshleyB says:

    #12. So what if she wants to sell it or anything else? It’s still her yarn to begin with!

  14. Yup says:

    Meh, I’m just tired of her poor me I got screwed posts. What good does it do to post on ds? Contact a mod, post a JAR, and get over yourself.
    I have her blocked anyhow, so I only saw the post when coming to the blog.

  15. not just another mama says:

    I think its a damn shame that people do this. #12.. I could care less if she wanted to wipe her butt with it.. Its hers.. No one has the right to STEAL your stuff.

  16. Booyah says:

    Wow #6. I’m not fond of most Christians either but to post a thread like that takes some BALLS.

  17. not just another mama says:

    I just looked up on juicy apple.. but that report was from 2007/early 2008.. Is it still the same issue?

  18. siriusmama says:

    #4 Sorry! For some reason I was thinking the person you quoted had said that in response to cowmommy, just ignore me lol.

  19. AshleyB says:

    SO…curious about Totally Her, the DS sister site or whatever. Is it totally dead? There is a contest there for tickets to Seaworld if you live in Orlando (I entered and bothered to post so maybe they would give the only poster with a post count higher than 1 a ticket) and it is DEAD! WOW! What happened to the site?

  20. eeek says:

    That who hates Christians poll is some funny shit. The ideas people have…. WTF. & I’m a pagan, who can’t even imagine asking why people are annoyed by paganism. Who DOES that?

    & it’s her yarn, the knitter should give it back!

  21. naturalmamadot says:

    “eeek Says: February 4, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    it’s her yarn, the knitter should give it back!”

    Ditto.

  22. Taterbug says:

    The OP seems to have The. Worst. Luck. Ever. Think I’ll just leave it at that.

  23. Thud says:

    Maybe its karma.
    Way back when I ordered supplies to make things for her (back before I got paid first), a large-ish order and we got quite far along, money spent on my part and she stiffed me. Just walked away without a word.

  24. liljoeysmom says:

    She seems to have the worst luck with her transactions. Every week it’s a new issue.

  25. Whatevs says:

    Worst luck or not – its still her yarn. It should come back to her to do whatever she wants with.

  26. Whatevs says:

    Thud – you have a point, what goes around comes around.

  27. Whatevs says:

    Oh and here’s some more drama on the co-op forum:

  28. not just another mama says:

    Why would someone bring drama to a co op? if you missed it oh damn well.. I missed it too.. im not whining.

  29. Michelle says:

    What exactly happened? were the posts deleted?

  30. DSDM2 says:

    I missed the co-op thing too, what was it?

  31. InAfixx says:

    Yep, this would be me. My yarn that hasn’t been returned.
    Not that I should need to explain, but it wasn’t an incredibly expensive yarn purchase; it’s more the principle that I sent materials that have not been used as agreed NOR have they been returned.
    I’d be perfectly happy to have the yarn back and return it to the store where it came from. But I should not have to just let it go and let someone keep my materials. I have no ill will towards this woman at all. If she doesn’t have the time or the inclination to knit – that’s her business. I’m not asking for apologies, just my yarn. Simple.

    And “Yup” (what a charming user name…did you come up with that all by yourself?), why is what I sell or don’t sell important? How ironic that you seem so concerned over my purchasing and resale practices when you claim you have my set on ignore through Diaper Swappers. I can get over myself, but it doesn’t appear you can.

  32. teamb4me says:

    hmmm. Interesting. Now lets see if any of these big talkers will directly to you…..;)

  33. not just another mama says:

    It was a yarn co op that a lot of people missed because it was gone super fast. The max filled up quickly.. I’m assuming someone was just pissed they missed. But a lot of people missed that co-op. It is not the end of the world.

    #31, no need to explain yourself, that mama shouldn’t be acting shady & .. sell what you want, you have a some cute stuff. I’m glad you sell things.. [:

    Is anyone elses computer crashing while on DS?

    EVERY.SINGLE.TIME I come to DS my browser crashes. This has never happened before, it’s only been going on the past week and only when I’m on DS. It doesn’t happen on any other website and it’s getting quite annoying.

    Those threads are all over DS. I have spent money left and right b.c of the viruses.

  37. DSDM2 says:

    ETA: most recently, something is going in and changing my print settings to mirror images.

  38. Booyah says:

    Holy crap, all this virus talk makes me really nervous about going to DS. I’m lucky though, I have not gotten anything *KNOCKS ON PARTICLE BOARD* but I thik that’s because everythign comes from the ads. I have all ads blocked on my browser. I don’t remember how I did it but it’s great, I don’t see all the crap I see on DS when I use DH’s computer. And I never get spyware or adware or any of that junk either.

    I feel really bad for the mamas that do, though. But why not just stop going there?? Come to CDN and enjoy a virus-free CD board!

  39. naturalmamadot says:

    I need to visit CDN more often, Im just so used to a fast moving board (NOT DS lol) that its hard to get into the swing of things there, I wish we could advertise on DS lol. “no dictators or virus'”

  40. jeruco says:

    so who is the WAHM the OP is refering to?
    I got lost in the posts here.

  41. DSDM2 says:

    Still don’t know.

  42. tongue biter says:

    #39
    I would still be careful. I use adblock plus and have never had a problem there. BUT, as of today a lot of the graphics on DS are not showing up for either while a couple of ads did. I am suspicious they are tweaking around and trying to subvert adblock. The lack of ads is the only benefit to being a site supporter.

  43. mksmommy says:

    Thats BS. Its like those manufacturers trying to make it so you cant fast forward through commercials when you dvr something.

  44. alison says:

    #41 …

    I got the impression that it wasn’t a WAHM from one of the OP’s responses on her thread…

    OP in #28
    “I dont think she is a WAHM, at least not that I recall from my contacts with her 4 months ago.

    And I do have a Mod acting as a Mediator for me Thanks for that suggestion!”

    The SHEEP and UN comment… Am I mad, or was there an WAHM with an Unsheepy store name? Connie? Google reveals nothing, so, I have no idea. But it rings a bell…

  45. alison says:

    Never mind – Connie is at Just Sheepy. That doesn’t work with the hint, if the caps lock does imply a hint. Didn’t mean to cast aspersions.
    πŸ™‚

  46. alison says:

    If the UN stands for User name, there are 6 on DS with sheep included, and only 2 of them have sufficient post counts to be considered… but I’m probably over thinking this.

  47. mksmommy says:

    Ya that wahm is an idiot. Even I knew Munki Munki Sushi was a trademark colorway of one of the HC moms. Shes like oh I did it darker now she didnt its almost freaking identical.

  48. mksmommy says:

    See what happens when Im ticked? I start having spelling errors and not making sense.
    And how do you not know that theres another colorway in that name with those colors??????? I mean everyones been going on about the hand spun MMS Paula put up the other day?
    Moreso Im sorry but if she was copying the fabric couldnt it possibly be different colors? I mean Im not seeing pink in it but rather orange blue and yellow.

  49. teamb4me says:

    Man. Yarn makes people CRAZY.

  50. mksmommy says:

    No copycats make ppl crazy.

  51. teamb4me says:

    tu shae

    Is that how you spell that?

  52. Addiesmommy says:

    please explain how it’s a copy when clearly the only thing “copied” was the fabric. I love “sushi” yarn as much as anyone. I dropped some serious cash a couple of weeks ago for yarnoodles “sushi” but I’m calling bull shit of the copying crap. She has just as much right to make a yarn to match a fabric than anyone else. Is she’s a copycat then so is yarnoodles because she copied the fabric.

  53. teamb4me says:

    I think it is much ado about NOTHING.

  54. Stacey says:

    Totally agree with #55.

  55. InAfixx says:

    No, the woman who has my yarn does not have a user name with the word sheep in it anywhere. Just for those curious. She has not responded to messages sent by Admin about this issue…but I also don’t know if she’s logged in since those messages were sent.

    “I do apologize whole-heartedly to Paula of Yarnoodles, I never meant to “copy” her colorway, and tried to do it differently enough (using darker colors and omitting a color) that it wouldn’t look the same. But some people thought that it still did look the same, and I should have chosen a different name. And for that I apologize, and will make sure that nothing like this ever happens again.

    Respectfully,
    Erica

  58. teamb4me says:

    Thanks #59.

  59. Stacey says:

    I’m so sick and tired of the “friends” running in to defend some wahm. As a business owner these wahms should be well-equipped to handle their own issues and it would totally irritate me if some online “friend” tried to fight my battles for me. If Erica is a copycat, then so is Paula. Also, if Erica is riding Paula’s coattails, then Paula is riding Heather Ross’ because that fabric was insanely popular before it inspired a colorway. Talk about capitalizing on the popularity of someone else’s work…

  60. Stacey says:

    Also…aside from Paula saying she was “deeply appauled” by Erica’s yarn I don’t see that either wahm has done anything wrong.

  61. yikes says:

    Am I the only one that thinks all the yarn crazies needs to go to Ravelry or a LYS and expand upon their yarn horizons? There’s a lot of wool out there, no need to go all nutso over the (IMO, overpriced) HC stuff. Lots of indie dyers offer gorgeous yarns.

  62. mksmommy says:

    The thing that aggravated me is that she’s all oh I didn’t know. Mind you people were asking for stalking help left and right last week for that handspun Munki Munki Sushi. Its very obvious she saw the popularity of the colorway and decided oh maybe I’ll try that. I think thats ick. Obviously she’s not confident enough in her own abilities to create a colorway that will sell so she basically tried to hitch a ride on another mama’s coat tails.
    And the public apology thing was a load of shit. If she was truly sorry rather then trying to garner sympathy she could’ve pmed Paula and worked out via PMs.

  63. just_sayin says:

    But, that’s handspun, so very different. And besides, it’s Yarnnoodles who is copying (and she is so not the first to make that colorway, it’s been made for years). If her “signature” colorway is copied from a fabric, then she is the one who needs to rethink her business and come up with colors that are original. Or, quit your bitching. Either way. I think the other WAHM (forgot her name – Erica?) showed some class apologizing, and Yarnnoodles should have stepped up with a touchy feely “That’s OK” kind of post. Instead, she lets her minions do her fighting for her, drags the other WAHM’s name through the mud, and then slinks away when the support went the other way. Her handspun sushi was TDF, though.

    And I so agree with #64 – yikes. I’m so sick of people who think that the best stuff ever is only on HC. TBH, the good quality stuff is elsewhere in general. HC is full of so-so stuff that is way overpriced. Sure, there are some real artists there, but there’s also a lot of CRAP. But for some reason no one will even look anywhere else, I don’t understand why.

  64. mksmommy says:

    Oh so its classy to post a public apology thread that was so obviously done so to garner sympathy? I think she should’ve just pmed Paula if she truly wanted to apologize.

  65. InAfixx says:

    I don’t think Paula from Yarnoodles deserves any bashing here. How is her Munki Sushi colorway, which is inspired by a fabric, any different than the many other “inspired by” colorways out there? Never has she claimed that it is her signature colorway. It’s popularity is based off demand – and the market continues to support that. Paula is a talented, mature woman..and she goes out of her way to make accomidations for people. I find it highly unlikely that she sent anyone to fight her battle for her.

    She and Erica did exchange private messages; from my understanding, and did come to an amicable solution. It’s between the two of them, afterall.

  66. not just another mama says:

    Are these colorways copywriten?

  67. Addiesmommy says:

    I don’t think ANYONE was bashing Paula but rather defending the other WAHM who has as much right to the colorway as anyone else. I think Paula is great. I just worked with her a couple of weeks ago. It was Paula’s “supporters” (only a couple of them) who acted immature about the whole thing. Accusing Erica of “riding coattails” is ridiculous.

  68. mksmommy says:

    Its not ridiculous when its found to be true. Hell the other day she was stalking the handspun and now she claims she had no idea there was another colorway almost the same as hers with the same damn name. Im not buying it.

  69. Addiesmommy says:

    She did not say she didn’t know about Paula’s yarn. You need to go back and read again. She said she thought she tweeked the colors enough so they looked different. She did. I have munki sushi and they don’t look alike at all.

    Found to be true by who? A bunch of WAHM’s who think dying a colorway to match fabric is “theirs” if they did it first. Got news for most of them….they didn’t create most of the colorways that are popular right now. Go back and look at some of the WAHM’s who were around 10 years ago doing the same thing. I’m sure you’ll find that alot of the “popular” colorways have been around for a while. There’s only so many ways to dye yarn….

  70. not just another mama says:

    I’m confused.. so the yarn looked similiar but was different.. and yet shes been bashed for that? Because I can show you about 5 different brands doing very similar colorways.. I doubt they complain to each other..

    I don’t know.. Sounds kind of childish, IMO.

  71. Thud says:

    Well, if her intention was to copy and then change it ‘just enough’ she was riding coat-tails. She INTENDED to do so.

    That said, I don’t think anyone can go at anyone else for colorway theft. They are colours. That was why there was the True Colors thing on HC~ no one owns them.

    Now, the fact that Paula (who is a darling) named hers munki sushi IS a theft of the influence/ inspiration of the fabric. It should not carry the name of the fabric in terms of copyright.

    There is no ‘inspired by’ legally, and using someone else’s name on your product to tie it to theirs is not ok, whatever you make.

  72. SSB says:

    Situations like this make my “Do not buy from” list grow.
    Professional wahms who take their business seriously don’t deal with situations like this publicly. They work things out privately with the other wahm and the customers never know about it.
    Publicly going on like this to me just says she’s trying to make a scene and get customers to dislike the other wahm. TACKY.

  73. SSB says:

    #64 Out of curiosity, have you ever dyed yarn yourself?
    ‘Cause I have and I’d say HC dyers undercharge for the work, time and MESS than goes into it.

  74. eeek says:

    #70 – a colorway can’t be copyrighted. Just think of the implications- who owns green & purple?

  75. Biggirlpanties says:

    #76 I completely agree. The whole tree frog knits thing today made me do a quick WTF also.

  76. MelbaToast says:

    T-Mobile owns Magenta

    I’m new! But a lurker.

    The whole point of the colorway discussion was obvious. See something popular jump on board. It happens all the time.

    Sushi was unique. It matched a fabric, but Paula made it popular. Suddenly, someone sees the popularity and tries to capitalize. Making it as a WAHM is hard enough. Why would you want to do something like another WAHM? Why not be original?

    If I were a WAHM I would surely want to do my own thing and sink or swim that way. This new WAHM said herself she tried to change it from Paula’s which means she had to be looking at Paula’s saying how can I tweak it a bit?

    And how are the people who jumped in the wool thread bashing others better then the people who defended Paula?

  77. yikes says:

    #77 yup. And I buy lots of stuff from indie dyers on etsy, etc. too. I know it’s a LOT of work and the dyer should charge accordingly. I was simply suggesting that the stuff on HC is really, really, really NOT that nice. (I mean it’s nice, but not nice enough to get your panties all in a wad over. Now, Sundara yarn, that’s another story altogether).

  78. mksmommy says:

    #75 and #80 Thank you! That was the point I was trying unsuccessfully to get across.
    I didnt notice anyone in the wool thread bashing so I know nothing of that and I stayed out of the original offending thread.

  79. DramaBore says:

    #79 – What was the TFK thing today?

  80. mksmommy says:

    I want to know too as I searched but didnt find anything about TFK.

  81. InAfixx says:

    TFK independent store had it’s first stocking yesterday. There were some highly sought after woolies available; and members had amassed a virtual army of assistance.
    Apparently, there was a typical Hyena Cart technical flub – as every item oversold. Some oversold (and were paid for) by the dozens.

    There was some contraversy when members began developing conspiracy theories that the stocking was “rigged”, judging by the order numbers and the fact that mysteriously, the order numbers that should have coincided to who won, did not…….or something to that effect.

  82. not just another mama says:

    What is TFK?

  83. not just another mama says:

    Oh nevermind.. Tree frog knits, right?

  84. Biggirlpanties says:

    Yeah. you’d think the first order for each item would be honored right? wrong. the person with the first order # for the masquerade longies didn’t get them, and even kristi at tree frog knits wont say what order # the person who got them had. all she’ll say is they were sold to someone else. the person who “won” them doesn’t want to be named either. it’s just shady.

  85. mksmommy says:

    Hmm thats weird and very shady if its true.

  86. just_sayin says:

    Melba Toast, Paula did not make the sushi colorway popular. It has been made by other WAHM’s and popular for years. Thats why I think this whole thing is so silly. It’s not some super amazing one of a kind thing. It’s colors that she copied from a fabric, and she wasn’t even the first one to do so.

    I’ve dyed yarn. I’ve been dyeing my own fabrics, clothes, and yarn for several years. While yarn takes time, it’s not exactly intensive work, like sewing or knitting. You pretty much throw it in the pot and wait. I mean, there’s a little more to it, obviously, but it’s not like you are slaving over a hot pot of dye for days. You put it on and walk away. It needs some tending, but not a ton. And if you do it right, there’s not much rinsing involved because the dye completely absorbs into the fiber. I spend much more time on tie dyes or marbling than on yarn, but those prices aren’t as sky high.

  87. alison says:

    Eeeeeeenteresting…

    And the oversell would be TFK’s fault for not setting the sales up as BINs… Not that I’m suggesting HC is perfect. But this problem would be user error.

  88. intrigued says:

    Hmmmm. That is interesting.

  89. Peaceand Love says:

    So how do we know who had the first order number? Wouldn’t only the WAHM know that?

  90. Biggirlpanties says:

    The people who stalked it all compared numbers I guess. Everyone who stalked longies posted their order numbers. The lowest number for longies was 1021 all the lower order numbers were for shorties and they were all confirmed shorties orders.. if that makes sense.

  91. Peaceand Love says:

    Okay now that’s just silly, I highly doubt that every single person who stalked the longies posted their order numbers. I never participate in those threads where order numbers are compared, so stupid.

  92. DramaBore says:

    Weren’t the shorties listed before the longies though? I thought the listings were staggered. If the last shorties number was 1020, then the first longies one should have been 1021.

    The whole thing sounds fishy. I wonder who ACTUALLY got them? Twenty bucks says it was a friend.

  93. werd says:

    good lord – LOTS of people need to get lives. Most of them post on DS. Its freakin YARN and WOOLIES – how about putting all that detective work and energy into something USEFUL! If they put all their energy together instead of focusing on tearing each other down, there would be a cure for cancer, I swear!

  94. mksmommy says:

    Werd thats not the point. Its sort of shady for a wahm to stock it only to give it to a friend.

  95. Peaceand Love says:

    Wow, sounds like a conspiracy! TFK stocked longies just for fun so she could give them to a friend. Give me a freakin’ break and find something better to do.

  96. InAfixx says:

    No, no and no. I’m sorry, but the TFK WAHM did not do a phoney stock only to give them to a friend. What an absolutely pathetic grasp for straws.

    I think the fact within the fiction here is that people got a little too heavily involved in the quest for knit pants.

    PANTS

    At the end of the day, there are many other beautiful pieces of wool out there in the world. While there were likely several people who would have loved to own those longies (myself included) there is no use “crying” over spilt milk.

  97. jeruco says:

    I can promise if Heather Ross saw that Paula of Yarnoodles was useing the name Munki sushi to sell her colorway, she would get a ceased and desist letter.
    Heather Ross takes that stuff very seriously.

  98. werd says:

    mksmommy – hidden agenda much? You are awfully passionate about yarn *eye roll*

  99. not just another mama says:

    See stuff like this is what gives honest WAHM’s a bad rep.. I bet some where someone believes this nonsense & will boycott TFK because of it.. which is stupid..

    Who goes through the trouble of that to give them to a friend..

    I think what happened is someone who was stalking them – won them – & wants to keep them for themselves then pass them on to the person they were helping.. It’s happened to me before.. I love it when months later mamas forget things & post stash pictures.. *eye roll*

  100. Pollyanna says:

    Really I’m surprised that Paula would say how “deeply appauled” she was when wasn’t she accused of this exact same thing with her colorway “Fishpond” which looked exactly like DD’s Goldfish? Then, if I remember correctly she made a big to-do about calling it “Flaming Ocean” or something.

  101. Shabbychic says:

    If Kristi wanted a friend to have the pants, I assure you, she would have sold them to her. She could have saved herself the whole fiasco.

  102. diudiaole says:

    this one is “fun”…especially the latter pages.

  103. mksmommy says:

    I have no hidden agenda contrary to what you think. I just dont think its cool to blatantly copy someone else which is exactly what she did.

  104. luvmyb says:

    I think somebody needs to take her biggirlpanties to the psychiatric laundromat.

    Just saying.

  105. Peaceand Love says:

    me thinks some biggirlpanties has a name…..like…beckles.

  106. Peaceand Love says:

    oh yes, lets talk about beckles and her wool hoarding and fit throwing, wahm bashing when she doesnt get her way…..for her yet-to-be-conceived child. *rolls eyes*

  107. luvmyb says:

    Oooh

    :popcorn:

  108. Biggirlpanties says:

    Hahaha, I’m not hiding. I definitely don’t throw fits or WAHM bash. I give my honest opinion. And if talking about me is entertaining to you, you need a better hobby. Not that I have to answer to any of you but most of the “hoarding” I do, I use to knit. But thanks for inquiring πŸ™‚

  109. Luvsbiggirlpanties ! says:

    Wow , thats so big of you ladies to talk about someone and their battle to TTC a baby ! Who needs the big girl panties now !

  110. luvmyb says:

    Not to be presumptious, but you’re hanging out on CDing boards, (or you were, until you were banned) and you’ve never even used a diaper before, or wool for that matter. What kind of honest opinion do you have?

  111. luvmyb says:

    LOL where in the world did we discuss her BATTLE??

    LMAO

  112. Luvsbiggirlpanties ! says:

    Why even mention her “yet-to-be-conceived-child” isnt this about TFK Kristi and her scam of CS. How she denied the winner and just sold them to her friend and we all know who that was .

  113. Peaceand Love says:

    Oh goody, the GM Chatter girls from http://z13.invisionfree.com/Goodmamas/index.php? are going to jump in. woot!!

    And you throw fits and freak out on wahms Beckles, I’ve seen it on DS, and heard the stories from some knittter friends. You are the nightmare customer πŸ™‚

  114. uhhuhwhut says:

    Wow, so sad that this has turned into a personal attack on someone totally unrelated to the thread. Sheesh. Talk about needing to get a life…

  115. endthecattiness says:

    #111.
    that is really catty to be talking about someone TTC when the original topic has nothing to do with her. And you’ll be found out soon enough. if you have a personal grudge that you need to sort out and let go, do it like an adult and talk to her directly.
    last time I checked, wool is not isolated to diaperswappers. expand your horizons.

    just because you raise children doesn’t mean you need to act like one.

  116. endthecattiness says:

    and #119….it’s pretty easy to find out how you are. πŸ™‚

  117. luvmyb says:

    Oooh, who got the Masquerades? I want to know what all you losers think.

  118. ZOMGWTFBBQ? says:

    Being one of the “girlies” I am not jumping in. I think this is all lame. Can we get back to real drama?

  119. luvmyb says:

    Nope.

    We’re defending Kristi. I’m not dropping it just because beckles doesn’t like it.

  120. ZOMGWTFBBQ? says:

    I personally have no problem with Kristi but anonymously lurking on a board? Does that make you cool? Not in my eyes.

  121. ABCDEFG says:

    cricket

    is it over?

  122. InAfixx says:

    #118.. Oh yah? You know who got the Masquerades? Why the fuck do you think that matters? I don’t give a shit if her baby sister, mom’s closest girlfriend or her neighbor’s pool guy got the longies…WHY DOES IT MATTER? I really don’t think it does.

    My thought is that person who won them is probably wisely dodging a bullet by keeping a low profile. This hype is lingering in the realm of virtual homicidal tendencies…I wouldn’t want to wave the “I won! I won!” flag either. God only knows what obsessed nut would start stalking me, all just to get a pair of pants.

    And Beckles (who I don’t know, have never talked to, sold/traded to) is not the *only* person on Diaper Swappers to have gone into debt collecting diapering goods for children she doesn’t have. If we’re going to air all that dirty laundry – let’s put it all out on the line.

    Don’t forget, the original topic was me, and how…oh what was it, was in “karmic backlash” and had a chronic buy/sell problem. I’d rather you continue dragging me through the mud than take a piss on a bunch of WAHM’s who really, haven’t done anything to deserve the tar and feathering they’re receiving here.

    Carry on.

  123. what? says:

    #128. no offense, but who are you and why do people care?

    and about the dirty laundry…
    let’s be honest. just because you had sex and had kids doesn’t mean you’re in a better position to be throwing money at wool.

  124. trollin4friends says:

    shes the op , the one that lost the yarn – people were giving her shit for reselling too much or hording her stuff, or something

  125. marnee says:

    OP- did you get your yarn back? that sucks.

  126. marnee says:

    And just for inquiring minds who want to know
    saslewis= sarah= LuvmyB

    be who you are Sarah. Its OK.

  127. Hawk says:

    123.
    Eh. I know who *should* have gotten the longies. Had nothing to do with Beckles. .. not sure how you made that leap, there.

    In any case the person that should have gotten them didn’t, so it doesn’t really matter. As far as who it was, I am sure we’ll all see soon enough if any one lurks on DS for any amount of time.

    To the OP Sorry about your yarn. 😦 I hope it makes its way back soon.

    If you guys are hell bent on discussing copying other WAHMs, I’d suggest you take a look at Connorsmama. You’ll have a field day.

  128. marnee says:

    Peaceand Love= mommytojands=Kelly πŸ˜‰

  129. luvmyb says:

    Yup, that’s me. Calling it like I see it. Not a fan of Beckles, not a fan of her coming on here and talking about a friend that I care about when she doesn’t know crap about what she’s talking about. Where is the whoopdedoo smiley?

  130. Shabbychic says:

    133. You “should” have gotten them. Why is that? As for Connorsmama, her time came and went.

  131. Hawk says:

    136.
    Uh, no, I shouldn’t have. I had a pretty high number for the person I stalked for. πŸ˜‰ Nice try though.

    Best direct that bitchery elsewhere. ;D

  132. Shabbychic says:

    Ohhh, I thought you said you should have. Yeesh. Settle down. Eh, my question wasn’t all that bitchy. Nice try? Huh?

  133. Hawk says:

    I could see how you think that. Maybe being catty comes so naturally to you that you don’t notice anymore? πŸ˜‰

    Generally questions, have … um, what are those things? Question marks? Yeah.

  134. Hawk says:

    I re-read. I fail at reading. Stupid Reading Rainbow.

    I guess I ate an extra big bowl of bitch flakes this morning.

  135. Shabbychic says:

    Yikes Hawk. Bad day? I did use a question mark. See above. Catty? No. Bitchy? You betcha. Just like you.

  136. marnee says:

    Hawk- Meg definitely has enough bitchery to go around.

    Well GM gals, me thinks we found our rat(s).
    way to call us losers Sarah. And Kelly- just nice.

  137. Hawk says:

    You’re right, Shabby. I was being overly bitchy.

    As I said, I apologize. I am sorry about that. I went on the defensive after your post. Moo moo. My bad.

  138. Shabbychic says:

    I’m all for sharing the bitchery. More than enough to go around. Spread the love. Apology accepted. Rock on.

  139. luvmyb says:

    How am I a rat??? wtf? And I think y’all ARE being losers. I stand behind every word I wrote.

  140. luvmyb says:

    And marnee, it’s not too difficult to figure out who are as well.

  141. marnee says:

    Yay.

  142. kaitlyn says:

    who is marnee?

  143. Hawk says:

    Fluff. Iz serious bizness. πŸ˜‰

  144. kaitlyn says:

    whenever i come here, i feel so lost.

  145. luvmyb says:

    LMAO This is so funny. Seriously.

  146. ABCDEFG says:

    It’s still not over is it?
    sigh.

  147. skittles says:

    you guys are funny. grown women acting like BABIES.

  148. not just another mama says:

    I can’t help but giggle either.. I sometimes wish I was popular so people would talk shit about me.. Sadly.. I am rather boring.

  149. Shabbychic says:

    It’s a drama blog. If everyone weren’t scrambling around, it wouldn’t exist. Then it would be really boring. Carry on.

  150. Biggirlpanties says:

    I wasn’t talking shit about Kristi. I think her work is fabulous and if it wasn’t I wouldn’t be on her wait list for 2010. What I said was that the whole situation surrounding that stocking made me walk away saying “wtf just happened”. and kelly.. if by being a nightmare customer you’re talking about the *ONE* knitter who held my money for months and never produced a product, then yes.. i’m that nightmare customer. Other than that I’ve done business with plenty moms and never had a problem.

  151. nver says:

    :scratchhead:

  152. liljoeysmom says:

    The WAHM gets called shady because a few rabid people decided which order number deserved the pants. Then you get your panties in a bunch because the WAHM won’t tell you who bought them. Since when are random people on a diaper website entitled to her customer’s information?

    Poor you! Now you can’t post your “look what fluff came in the mail today” post and have everyone say “Ooh your so lucky” and “I call dibs on those”. Get over it!

  153. nver says:

    Maybe I missed the link but what longies were so special? Linky? Were they really worth the drama ?

  154. backyardigan says:

    Beckles, the big burning question on a lot of people’s minds, but no one has the balls to come out and say it is WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? What are you doing hanging out with a bunch of mom’s while their kids nap, talking about DIAPERS. I barely know what I am doing here. I look back to before I had my baby and the last thing I felt like doing, hell I didnt even know it existed, was talking about and buying diapers for a yet to exist child. Go and play with your friends and with your DH for crying out loud. Why are you buying diapers and wool? I am sorry, but since everyone talks smack about this, I may as well put it out there since the topic has turned to you. I dont expect you to answer, but all your girls piss and whine behind your back about you needing a reality check. Seriously, this is doing you no good.

  155. nver says:

    Oh ic huge oversell like the crankies did

  156. Biggirlpanties says:

    If THAT is the burning question on lots of peoples minds then someone needs to re-evaluate. I’m really NOT that interesting. What is any person without kids doing on DS? There are plenty of us. I orginally came to DS to learn more about cloth diapering. I ended up buying diapers for said “unconceived child” so that I didn’t have to worry about stalking when I did have a baby. I learned to knit, and admired good knitting..saw how hard it is to get some of the beautiful wool on DS. Why not jump on the chance when it presents itself? That’s all. Burning question answered.

  157. getoveritpeople says:

    get over it mamas. and play with your kids. if you’re obsessed over beckles, the bigger issue is why do you care.

    many people on DS are there before they had kids (like Kristin). Get over it.

  158. ABCDEFG says:

    Beckles is no Kristin.

    Is it just me or does anyone else find it entertaining that the drama follows Beckles wherever she goes – whether she is there or not – like the smelly kid in Charlie Brown has that cloud around him??

  159. not just another mama says:

    I’m a little confused.. is this person TTC or just buying for when she is TTC? Cause i see lots of TTC mamas buying diapers.. I see nothing wrong with it.. If you see something you love, why not get it while you can?

  160. Biggirlpanties says:

    I’m TTC currently.

  161. not just another mama says:

    Well good luck to you.. I hope you get your BFP soon!

  162. Biggirlpanties says:

    thanks mama πŸ™‚

  163. backyardigan says:

    just buying diapers doesnt get you so embroiled that you get banned from DS

    and 167, she was on Ds buying diapers and wool long before she was ttc.

  164. Hawk says:

    160.

    Weren’t you like on super nanny for your out of control household?

    Or was that someone else?

  165. Biggirlpanties says:

    i got banned from DS because a knitter I paid to knit me something held my money hostage. claimed she knit something, when asked for pics, couldn’t produce them. I was telling other people on the board that if I didn’t get my money back i’d take her business down. This was two months after I paid. but nice try. and I wasn’t on DS buying diapers before I was TTC.. seriously.. get over yourself. as I said before, i’m not that exciting.

  166. backyardigan says:

    That was BackyardiganMom, I’m just a regular ol’ backyardigan. Pablo to be exact.

    and Beckles,you’re lying our your ass.

  167. Biggirlpanties says:

    Unless of course you want to count the months I was on injections to help the lining of my uterus.. in which case, then yes, I suppose I wasn’t having semen meet my eggs but I still count that as TTC. I’m so done with your silliness. You clearly have issues. Hiding behind a screen name like the others. Grow some cojones.

  168. uniqua says:

    Um. Yeah.

    No, beckles. If I remember correctly, you’ve been on DS forever, and you only started TTC this fall. So, that’s an untruth right there.

    Secondly, you’re kidding yourself if you think that’s what happened with your “knitter”. Give me a flipping break.

  169. backyardigan says:

    You would make a rockin’ Lifetime movie, you and your woe is me drama all the time.

  170. uniqua says:

    You were hiding behind a screen name until you were called out last night!!! LMAO

    And come on, enough with the TTC troubles card. A lot of us have been there-that doesn’t give you any sort of justification to behave poorly.

  171. Biggirlpanties says:

    I said before.. I was on DS to learn more about Cding. Unless you’re living my life.. you really have no idea what you’re talking about. Get over yourselves. πŸ™‚

  172. backyardigan says:

    well since you air your dirty ol’ big girl panties every where you go. Pretty much everyone here in cyber land knows your beeswax.

    No this is what happens when you become a mother with no life. No offense to anyone as I include myself in this bunch. Without this blog I don’t know how Id get through my boring mundane days LOL.
    Lisa did you get your yarn back yet????????? Are you ready to out the person who did this?

  177. backyardigan says:

    Back to the original topic…a little birdie told me the person who has Lisa’s yarn is named Shay πŸ™‚ slturner on ds I believe.

  184. uniqua says:

    Never mind yarn, wool and Beckles, has anyone noticed that that snarky bitch Tararaboomdeea has been demoted. No more Mod title for her.

  185. mksmommy says:

    Good riddance.

  186. InAfixx says:

    Nope, I do not have my yarn. And since the knitters profile is set to private, I don’t even know if she’s been online. I’d hope that the Admin I am working with on this (sweet_fantasy_fox) would tell me if her message(s) had been read/replied to.

    #183: You are correct. Although her name is Shae, not Shay. “slturner” on Diaper Swappers. All I’ve ever heard about her from others is that she is a super nice mama. She may very well be nice, but right now she isn’t holding up her end of our bargain. Perhaps if anyone here is acquainted with her – they could encourage her to return my inexpensive yarn and just call it a day.

  187. backyardigan says:

    WHAT?!?! Taraboombitchastic isnt a mod anymore!?!?! woooohooo!!! Time to party, woot woot.

    Hey! You ladies interested in something REALLY interesting? Anyone notice Lee’s announcement thing on DS about winning free Seaworld tickets? Well, I was one of the “winners” on the sister site Totally Her. And, I went today to claim my ticket, and guess what? Total scam. Sea World had NO clue what was going on, and the person I was suppose to “meet” never showed. I stayed for 25 minutes after the agreed upon time, for nothing. I have the receipt from the parking pass as proof that I was there, on time. TOTAL BS SCAM (that and they said on the site there would be a total of 3 winners, yet they only announced 2 names out of the 4 entries.
    http://totallyher.com/forum/totally-her-contests/2360-win-tickets-seaworld-orlando-sunday-february-8-a.html
    Of course I included a link. I’m wondering what Lee has to say for this little slip up.

  194. DSDM2 says:

    interesting….

  195. seriously says:

    Having a problem with beckles = ok

    Attacking her for struggling to conceive and have a viable pregnancy = not ok

    Calling all the GM mamas stupid = not ok

    Trolling the GM board to out people and repeat things that are said there = not ok

    Honestly all this drama had nothing to do with 90% of us over there. There was no need to post links to the board and call us all names. We are just a bunch of mamas that like to chat about life and diapers and wool. Just like most mamas on DS. We were just tired of the mods being so insane. And the mamas that don’t like it on the GM boards or think we are stupid should not apply to be a part of it. Or maybe you should try to chat and be a part of the chatter. Either way, you violated a safe place that lots of mamas talk and really could have cared less about any of this.

    and that is not ok.

    wow. how are they going to explain away this? although, it seems like no one frequents that site anyways so maybe they will be able to sweep it under the rug 😦

  198. eeek says:

    AshleyB- Oh, I’d be pissed. Post that story wherever you get a chance. That was just so wrong.

  199. DSDM2 says:

    Post a JA report.

  200. Shabbychic says:

    Oh please with the GM board, you back stab just like it’s done over here, but you think it’s behind a veil of privacy. Guess again.

  201. nver says:

    OH ths is all too sad. Hard to believe that who I thought were nice Mamas have turned out to be such back stabbers and so mean. And now mamas are being banned on DS over this, crazy. And all over some peice of wool, geeze.

  202. ABCDEFG says:

    Who all got banned now?
    (insert serious music)

  203. naturalmamadot says:

    lmao @ #208

  204. luvmyb says:

    Just to set the record straight, here.

    I did not appreciate beckles and whoever else posted negatively and degradingly above (i’m too lazy to go back and skim through the posts) about Kristi’s business and that is what initially set me off.

    I do not personally know Beckles, as I don’t know most of you guys, but there are just a few instances I know of that have made me not “mesh” Internet-wise with her.

    Please do not kid yourselves. Women are mean to each other. For whatever reason, they are. I’m usually a pretty passive person, honestly, but Kristi is a very nice mama, and I don’t think its fair to expect those of us who know and care about her to just sit back while her good name is tarnished. Sure, I could have left out the psychiatric hospital comment, but I was pissed off and it came out. (Hello no editing function on the drama blog.)

    I am not mean. Its very easy for all of y’all to sit in your chat forum and discuss this and draw your conclusions, and get all worked up, but it was honestly all about defending a friend.

    Please be aware that you guys have a heck of a lot of backstabbing and two faced-ness of your own within your chummy little ranks. And I’m not talking about the ones you’ve banned or are ignoring.

    So. Take this for what you will. I’m sure you guys have hidden behind user names on recent threads on this blog where my friends have been belittled and chastised. It’s not all sunshine, happiness and respectfullness within y’all’s happy little world either πŸ˜‰

  205. twatwaffles & cuntcakes says:

    i like to believe that it is all sunshine, happiness and respectfullness within my happy little world. if it’s not, the people talking shit need to come out and say it. why belong to our forum if you are just there to say mean things about other members behind their backs? i just don’t get it.

  206. luvmyb says:

    Because that’s life, honey. That’s how people are, and always will be.

  207. nver says:

    #211 I wish they would too, just don’t get it.

  208. twatwaffles & cuntcakes says:

    212 – i know. *sigh* i just love all the mamas in our forum and it makes me sick to see this stuff get everyone upset. i am too sensitive. lol.

  209. mksmommy says:

    #210 I never hide behind a screen name. I did once on here to avoid some backlash from past blogs about me.
    It made me realize I really dont give a shit if anyone likes me or not. Im opinionated and a bitch at times. But I can be the sweetest kindest person you ever met via DS as those who have had the pleasure of chatting with me outside of DS know.
    And so as not to appear as if Im hiding behind a screen name, I am PeachyKeen aka JustPeachy aka ~Peach~.

  210. mksmommy says:

    Lisa, you are in good hands with Sally.

  211. tiredmama says:

    Beckles as a former fertility impaired mom you DO NOT take injections for months before TTC. The fertility medicine’s are dangerous. Even for invitro the most intensive fertility process is around 6 weeks not months.

  212. Biggirlpanties says:

    217. I was talking about lupron. that is months. it was to keep the endo at bay and help the lining of my uterus. sorry for the confusion.

  213. cdmd1023 says:

    I don’t hide either. My name here is my name on every single message board, ds, hc, and more.

    I really have no opinion on any of the above, I don’t know these people, nor did I follow any of what was going on.

    Hope you get your yarn back! that sucks.

  214. backyardigan says:

    #201, your gm board was outed hereon the blog by the owners long ago. each time you guys post a link on your board and people click it, it leaves tracks, and people can see it. See this post to see your link posted long ago πŸ™‚ https://thedramaofdiaperswappers.wordpress.com/2009/01/01/lets-welcome-in-the-new-year-its-1984/

  215. naturalmamadot says:

    Oh thats funny #215, weve talked before and you were super nice. Funny thing is every time I came here and saw your justpeachy sn I thought of the ~peach~ one…i bought my fave dipe off of you haha

  216. backyardigan says:

    wait? no one got banned from DS over this. who are you talking about?

  217. Shabbychic says:

    If you went to someone’s house and they didn’t have a baby and were not pregnant and they whipped open a closet filled with boy baby clothes and girl baby clothes, would you think that was normal? Or pathological?

    Just asking a purely hypothetical question.

  218. Biggirlpanties says:

    if they were in a closet, yes. not if they were in a container in the basement. not if they’d been pregnant twice and lost both babies. or if they were TTC. hypothetically of course.

  219. Dr Phil says:

    Beckles obsession for hoarding things from people who actually have kids=PSYCHOlogical.

  220. cdmd1023 says:

    personally, i would never buy anything for a bay that was conceived yet, but that just me. And I work in retail, I have the chance to buy name brand baby clothes for $.60 but dont because I know I have another 3+ years before I want to add to my family. But….had I know about cd’s and ds and hc before having my kids, Im sure I would frequent often. There is alot to learn, and all buying aside, some really awesome people that I am so glad to call my friends.

  221. cdmd1023 says:

    sorry for the typos, you should see my computer. *baby and NOT conceived.

  222. Biggirlpanties says:

    Thanks Dr. Phil.. i’ll keep that in mind.

  223. AshleyB says:

    I’m giving Lee & such a day to give me an answer (though the PM I sent off to has already been read by them) and remedy the issue before I file the JA report.
    The mama’s buying while TTC or so? It’s fine if they are getting good deals on it. I don’t see paying retail for a yet to be concieved child or buying TOO much as there is NO clue what season said kid will be born into etc…but, to each her own. AND…the original mama who this post is about, I hope you get your yarn back! Any idea why Tarabobmod was demoted?

  224. Stacey says:

    I miss watching Days of Our Lives

    Also, I had a psychiatrist (yes, for the CRAZY) and she begged me to date her son and showed me all this baby stuff she had accumulated for her future grandbaby. Totally freaked me out. I started thinking maybe she needed help with the crazy more than me.

  225. Biggirlpanties says:

    Ashley, that’s awful. I hope he has answers, though it’s doubtful. Just sucks that you wasted your time. 😦

  226. Shabbychic says:

    Hmmm, well I’ll buy the good deal, although I wouldn’t do it. How about paying oh 5 times over retail at auction. Would that be strange? Just asking.

  227. Stacey says:

    Hypothetically, that would be strange.

  228. Biggirlpanties says:

    That, I did do. 200% I did. I’m owning up to it, and have no excuses. It was crazy, but I did it. Like I told my friend. If I never end up using it, it will go on my mantel as the stupidest thing I ever did. πŸ™‚

  229. not just another mama says:

    All I know is.. My DH would have not been happy if I was doing that. He didn’t like that I bough things before we knew the sex.. So if I was buying stuff will TTC, he would be upset. I guess because we don’t have money to spend on things that may or may not come to be used.

  230. AshleyB says:

    231, other than the $10 parking, it wasn’t a waste of a day. I have passes to Universal Orlando, so we just spent the day playing in Dr Seuss land, and riding roller coasters while scaring tourists (if you scream bloody murder on the rides, it scares tourists)! I think all Florida residents either have passes SOMEWHERE, or at least a friend/relative to borrow passes from.

  231. Biggirlpanties says:

    But really, I still don’t get why you would take so much interest in what I do. It doesn’t affect you… πŸ™‚ I’m done talking about this. I’ll own up to what I do, I have nothing to hide, but don’t need to be bashed about everything. Get over it.

  232. Shabbychic says:

    Well you see, Beckles, when you publicly complained on DS about me outbidding you on an item for my actual existing child, well then your psychosis does affect me.

  233. Dr Phil says:

    I’m assuming people thinks it affects them because you’re essentially taking from people who actually have children to put the wool, diapers, etc on, when you, yourself, are stowing it all away in your basement like some freak pack rat. Hello?

  234. just_sayin says:

    I do think it is weird to buy stuff when you don’t have any kids, and are either TTC, or will be soon. I never buy anything for a baby until we have reached viability. I’ve had 4 losses, so I always wait until we feel pretty sure that we will actually have a child.

    What happens if you (general you) never get pregnant and have a live birth? What do you do with the clothes and diapers that have been sitting for several years? They may have no resale value, or shot elastic or what have you. You have then just wasted a ton of money. And it seems a bit odd to have a lot of baby stuff for a baby you don’t have. I can see maybe buying one or two things, but having a full stash is weird, IMO.

    And to the person who lost out on Sea World tickets, that bites! They didn’t mean San Diego or San Antonio, did they? You should contact Sea World, they are pretty picky and may not be happy that tickets were given away without their permission. Giving away tickets through a sweepstakes implies that they are supporting that message board, like a sponsor.

  235. mamaload says:

    do you all realize how mean you sound. i mean seriously there is nothing wrong with preparing for a baby/ or babies you know you are going to have. how are these items going to go bad in storage??? how are they not going to have resale value when you are all giving a woman a beat down because she has them, are you honestly saying you wouldnt buy them off of her?? beckles has outbid me, and bought items that i really wanted, and i am not mad at her one bit. she has just as much of a right as any of us mamas do to buy stuff. what she does with it is not our business.

  236. InAfixx says:

    Opinions are all completely righteous. They are OPINIONS. You cannot argue the validity of an opinion. Let’s just clarify that right now.

    So, there are those that believe buying a wardrobe for a child that doesn’t exist is normal, and those of us who do not. No matter which mindset you function within – that doesn’t make you a stupid/mean person.

    Personally? Yes. I do find it extremely strange. We’re not taking about $2 garage sale secondhand newborn clothes or layette…we’re talking about expensive cloth diapers and pricey custom wool.
    I once had (past-tense) a friend with PCOS, who had tried for several years to get pregnant. Her 3 bedroom apartment was at least half filled with baby supplies…all brand new. I would estimate she’d spent at least $5000 dollars. It was weird, not to myself alone, but to many many people around her. I have no idea whether she has kept all that merchandise, but she still doesn’t have a child that I am aware of.

    Like I said, I don’t know “Beckles” personally. Know OF her, don’t know HER. But as an outsider looking in, being told that someone without any children was buying up an uber-expensive stash….it would raise my eyebrow.

    Ashley, the Seaworld sham doesn’t surprise me in the least. I have my suspicions that most of those exorbant-priced goods they gave away in the super raffle were also smoke and mirrors.

    Lee at his finest.

  237. skittles says:

    sounds you ladies need a life and to quit being so freaking JEALOUS of people! honestly, if she wants to buy wool and put her ass in it, WHO CARES! what do you care what she does with HER money? Sounds like some people need to start practicing on who can click buy it now fast enough rather than being jealous over it.

  238. Ashley,

    I am very sorry about what happened this morning, but I am also confused as to *what* happened.

    I was there this morning from 9-10am. I was wearing a shirt with the TotallyHer logo. We met more than 10 other women and their families there, and we were in a group at the entrance for most of that time. We were also communicating with the SeaWorld staff the entire time, who were able to help us locate some of the other people who were waiting in the Will Call line.

    Again, I am sorry for the confusion. TotallyHer is not a scam, and we wish you were with us today.

  239. just_sayin says:

    I don’t see how what I said is mean? It IS a bit odd to have a huge amount of stuff that you spent way over retail for, for a baby you don’t have and is not on the way. Look at it this way, what if I really wanted to be an Egyptologist, but I wasn’t even in college yet, or hadn’t even applied. Wouldn’t it be odd to have a closet full of spades, brushes and hiking boots? Or if I really wanted to be a nurse or a doctor, so I started buying stethoscopes and lab coats, because one day I just might actually apply to get my undergrad degree. I just know I’m going to race at Nascar one day, so I’m stocking up on helmets and I’ve been e-mailing sponsors.

    You can’t tell the future.

    I really hope beckles has a baby one day. I have experienced several losses, and I didn’t know if I would ever be a mom, so I know what that feels like, and I really do hope and pray that she gets a baby to put that stash on. But she does have the cart before the horse.

    Diapers go in and out of fashion, and elastic has a shelf life. What if she spent thousands on Honeyboys back when they were the “in” diaper, and then once she realizes that she will never have a child she tries to sell them. But then she discovers that she can’t even give them away. What if moths get in the wool? Hopefully none of that will happen and she will end up with a little one who gets to wear all of the stuff she has.

    And, I’m definitely not jealous. I have a wonderful family, more income than I know what to do with (obviously, since the stuff around here is getting a bit ridiculous), and I don’t know this beckles person at all. I’m just saying what I think. It seems weird to me, in my opinion, to hang out with a bunch of moms talking about diapers when you don’t have a baby. Is she on The Babywearer, too? Because if I was going to buy stuff for a kid I didn’t have, it would be carriers for sure, lol.

  240. mamaload says:

    yes, that is all true i am assuming one considers such risks before making purchases. it really isnt our business what one does with their money is it???

  241. MeMeMe says:

    Sorry to the OP about your yarn, that blows. 😦

    As for if it’s odd to build a stash for a “maybe baby”, I think it’s not all that odd. I mean, it’s fun planning a baby. I’ve always felt ridiculously unprepared only having 9 mos to gather all I need/want for a baby. I did start a stash/bedding etc for #3 long before DH was even on board with TTC again. It was a fun and kept me distracted from the baby fever while I waited for DH to be ready for another baby. I’ve known friends through the years with fertility issues and all of them collected baby items while TTC. Some unfortunately never did conceive and either adopted or gave up. I think it’s all a process that they need to go through and though it’s sad, I think the symbolism that having those baby items in the home brings, is somehow comforting to them. In the end, the loss of money from an un used stash is really the least of their worries. KWIM?

    As for being upset that a childless person owns an item you want and could use on an already here child, whatever, it’s a SHIT CATCHER. Really??? We’re arguing over who gets to buy something designed to contain human waist. <> No wonder many of our DH’s think were are silly for being so into cloth diapers that we sit on cloth diapering forums and chat about cloth diapers and squeal with delight when we get fluffy mail. lol

  242. yes says:

    #247, agreed.
    this bares repeating:

    grow up, mothers.

  243. Stacey says:

    I don’t think some people are arguing, just raising an eyebrow and thinking…wow, that’s odd! No big deal.

  244. mksmommy says:

    #221 I remember you πŸ˜‰ too. Actually it was the dipe part that gave it away but I do remember you because you live not far from me πŸ™‚

  245. mksmommy says:

    I think everyone missed the point on why exactly beckles isnt liked. Its not because shes buying dipes and woolies for a child that has yet to be conceived.

  246. mksmommy says:

    I forgot to finish my post. Its because she is vicious and threatened ppl just because they got stuff she wanted. Who the hell pms somebody running their mouth just because they got outbid in an auction??????? Isnt the point of an auction that the spoils go to the highest bidder?

  247. liljoeysmom says:

    Doesn’t sound like any one is jealous of Beckles. Sounds like they are tired of her temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her way!

  248. NotMeAtAll says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with buying things while TTC. Many of us can’t afford to buy everything we want in 9 months. I don’t pay any attentions to WHO outbids me and whether they have children. People also buy gifts for other people. I don’t know beckles but it’ clear than none of you have ever suffered from infertility. If buying while TTC is crazy she will have LOTS of company.

  249. cdmd1023 says:

    #244 how would the staff have no idea what she was talking about if you were alredy in communication with them? That really confuses me.

  250. Shabbychic says:

    249, 251 and 253-Yes, all that.

  251. Madre says:

    Anyone else find it odd that the TotallyHer rep responded here rather than on the thread on TotallyHer?

  252. Madre – that’s only because I got home from SeaWorld at almost midnight last night and I haven’t had a chance to go through all of my messages yet. πŸ™‚

  253. indysteffanie says:

    #255–not that i believe the totally her rep over the other momma, but just because the employees at sea world didnt know anything about it, doesnt mean anyone is lying.

    we were there in May on a Make A Wish trip…it was amazing to me the amount of employees that didnt seem to have a clue as to what to do with a MAW child.

    This is something they see ALOT too…as for MAW the orlando trip is 3 days in Disney, 2 in Universal and 1 in Sea World.

  254. cdmd1023 says:

    not saying anyone is lying, it just seems like they would/should have a little more organization.

  255. indysteffanie says:

    im telling ya…that whole organization needs more organization…lol

    they were aweful.

  256. DSDM2 says:

    I’m not sure I believe the Totally Her lady… wasn’t it only 2 people who won? How did that make 10 women? And how would they miss each other at the front gate? AND why hasn’t she been offered a new trip?

  257. not just another mama says:

    TotallySCAM.

    Who responds on a DRAMA BLOG?!! How totally unprofessional.

  258. NotMeAtAll says:

    responding here first…..not cool!

    I want to hear from the “other” winners

  259. InAfixx says:

    How peculiar. You’d think a group of 10 women and at least one rep. would have been easy to spot, eh?

    All I know is that something is rotten in the state of Denmark, and I think it all leads back to Mr. Lucrative (Lee)

  260. just_sayin says:

    #249 Stacey, that’s exactly it. It’s weird. I couldn’t care less what she buys or does with her money, BFD. She can burn it in her fireplace, wipe her ass with it, or wear it pinned to her shirt.

    It doesn’t sound like the problem here is what she buys. I don’t know beckles or the drama – if anyone wants to spill it I’m all for the drama – but it sounds like everyone is turned off by her attitude. Also, it doesn’t sound like she bought a few things for the baby when she found them on sale. I haven’t seen her stash, but it has been implied here that she has a huge expensive stash, which sounds a bit obsessive. So, what, if she gets pregnant she isn’t going to buy a single thing? I doubt it. It’s like how I saved (hoarded) all of my kids’ clothes with the intention of using them again. Well, they are still in a box and I just bought the baby all new stuff.

  261. AshleyB says:

    I was notified by Totally Her staff this morning asking for a pic of my reciept for parking

    There is said receipt for proof, and I had my BIL with me that morning as well as I’m not crazy enough to bring a toddler to a theme park alone. Neither of us saw her, and we waited around by the gate. I am confused as to how we missed each other as well, but I am in contact with them to see WTH happened. And, I was surprised to see the rep post here first as well (more surprised that the TH rep reads the drama blog that avidly). Oh…and, for some reason, on TH now some of my post editing features are disabled. Just find that interesting as well.

  262. uniqua says:

    How gross. They made you send them a pic of your PARKING PASS????

    WTFever.

  263. newhere says:

    and think about how many of these comments she had to read through to see that it was talked about here. Strange.

    Also a little odd to me that she’s a TH rep…yet she’s a newbie on the board?

  264. indysteffanie says:

    i will say it would be really hard to miss a group of 10 at the front gate…its not large.

    hmmm

  265. the toaster says:

    I’m wondering why if the totally her person (wendy?) went yesterday, what was she doing waiting there this morning between 9 and 10?

    And whats with all the “lee” names on that site?

  268. newhere says:

    what happened to tara? She hasn’t even posted on DS since late December

  269. cdmd1023 says:

    Wendy- you posted pics on flickr is your trip, your not wearing a shirt that says TH

  270. cdmd1023 says:

    there are those typos again!

    Wendy-You posted pictures of the seaworld trip, you said you were wearing a TH shirt, but in the pictures you are not. Still sounds scammish to me.

  271. AshleyB says:

    As David posted on Totally Her in a public reply, as soon as I send them my address they will mail me a one time use pass. One thing though in the pics that I was wondering about other than the lack of a TH shirt: the pics from lunch at the shark encounter. Did everyone have to pay for that themselves, or was it included in the day? I don’t want to sound totally rude with TH, but also I had to drive out there, had a toddler chanting “fish fish fish” as he thought he was going to get to see fish…and then pay $10 for parking that I am now out. I’m trying to figure out the nice way to ask them WTH is up with that, or am I just out over the lack of organization of them (because that is pretty BS that I’m out $10 over TH’s mistake). Oh…and TH wants me to post saying problem resolved! And, as soon as I have ticket in hand to make sure problem truly IS resolved, then I will!!

  272. naturalmamadot says:

    #277
    I think that last part bugs me the most. They need you to post and say everything is sunshiny and grand again so no one gets their feathers ruffled.
    Not like you shouldnt say “yes they did give me another pass because of the misunderstanding” but telling you to? Just seems phony. You should post (and probably would have) because they explained, fixed it and gave you another pass, not because they told you to.

  273. naturalmamadot says:

    Oh and does anyone have the link to the flickr? I cant seem to find it TIA

    #278, I was planning to say “problem resolved” as soon as it was! If I didn’t plan to, I would have posted a big ‘ol Juicy Apple report on their butts letting most of their DS members know what kind of failure Lee is being! It just annoys me that that they are being asshats about something they screwed up.

    I am wondering the same thing…that and she was getting home from Sea World at midnight and her first stop is Drama Blog??? *scratch head* Drama Blog about a thread over yarn…hmmmm something sounds well, “fishy”

  279. DSDM2 says:

    I looked at the photos, and they are from the 7th, but Wendy had on a plain black tank top, or that is what it looked like to me…

    It isn’t adding totally up. There was some kind of miss-communication, and Ashley needs sent $10 for parking along with a pass.

  280. AshleyB says:

    Wait–the pics are from the 7th? The trip was SUPPOSE to be the 8th! That may be the problem…they went a day early. I told TH that I want reimbursement for parking, and a ticket…we’ll see how that pans out…though, the message I sent was read almost an hour ago.

  281. cdmd1023 says:

    according to her flickr pics-there is a blogger seaworld day, some hard hat day, and something like IZEA day. which of these is TH?

  282. naturalmamadot says:

    If they decided to change the date it wouldve been nice of them to let you know πŸ™„

  283. liljoeysmom says:

    The Totally Her contest winners got tickets to the mommy blogger event. As far as I can tell it wasn’t a Totally Her promo event but a mom with blogs event.

  284. mksmommy says:

    Lee marketed it as a totally her contest though so its his ass on the line.

    How lame. He is such a scheister. 😦

  286. AshleyB says:

    #291, that is exactly what I was going to say! I’m still waiting on a reply there…though the message was read.

    wow take a look at her other listings while your at it….

  291. cdmd1023 says:

    we have a diaper that looks like one of those, and its only been used a few times!!! But, its from my son being sick.

  292. naturalmamadot says:

    I can understand that, but coupled with her other listings I think it is either how shes washing them, how often or she seriously needs to sun them after every washing. She states in one listing that she has hard water so things dont get clean, not sure if that could be right or not.

  293. noisybean says:

    Or more importantly, IF she’s even washing them at all. Ick.

  294. not just another mama says:

    I bought some flats that were washed by a mama with hard water.. After a soak in oxyclean and a hot wash.. they were like new..

    Atleast that mama isn’t saying they’re stain free & in EEEEUC!

  295. jeruco says:

    You need to file a JA report anyhow. That is plain rude and a lack of communication on totallyher.
    Also, there are websites that review sites like totallyher. You should leave feedback there too.
    Its obvious Lee is quite concerned with his rep. DO NOT post saying its all resolved. DO NOT.
    That just gives them the satisfaction of knowing people wont read anymore. Thats not how it should work. They messed up and they need to pay the consequences of their actions.
    If they ban you, who cares?

  296. naturalmamadot says:

    #302 haha true, but shes trying to sell some things for a price I cant seem to get for diapers I take exceptional care of. Cant fault her for trying I guess πŸ˜•

  297. cdmd1023 says:

    #302 yes, and she also priced them accordingly.

  298. naturalmamadot says:

    #305, I dont think her prices are really high or anything, but lately its been really hard (for me at least) to get anything sold unless I would like to basically give it away. I havent tried DS though…Im scared to pick up a virus again from them.

  299. AshleyB says:

    #303, if it is resolved, I’ll leave it be! But, a resolution means getting my ticket, using it so I know it’s not just Wendy’s used one or some crap…and a reimbursement for the parking I spent $10 on for nothing! And I’m afraid if I file a JA report, I’ll just be totally out. I don’t mind being banned from TH, though it may suck to be banned from DS as they have a large FSOT…though for chatting I much prefer CDN! And, the brown diapers/wool…has she never heard of bleach for those diapers? Yuck!

    #306-ds is slow also. I know I havent been buying, or selling.

  302. Love the skidmarks! says:

    #300, I have hard water and none of my dipes have stains. And if they do get stained, a soak in Oxy takes them right out. It’s not that difficult. She must be handwashing in said hard water.

  303. Shabbychic says:

    Thats Kindhearted Woman Leslie selling all that nasty crap.

  304. Love the skidmarks! says:

    Why am I not surprised? Seriously.

  305. alison says:

    Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.

    Those diapers are nasty.

    Egads, Kindhearted Woman. You need to put ’em IN the washer, not just let ’em know where it is…

  306. scmje says:

    Ali…LOL LOL LOL

    Those diapers are pretty bad. I am not sure I would even try to sell them for shipping. Jeez. Just donate them – even that I would be embarased.

  307. diudiaole says:

    disgusting. Well, at least she’s not selling used mama cloth…

  308. Love the skidmarks! says:

    Oh God, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    To Whom it May Concern:

    You all need to find something better to do with your time.

    Just thought I’d pop in and speak up since I am allowed to now. As a Mod, we were forbidden from posting on this blog even though a couple of the Admins are obsessed with reading it and talked about it all the time with other Mods and Admins. Anywhoo, I wasn’t “demodded”. I stepped down. Actually, I went MIA a couple months ago and when questioned in an email by one of the Admins what was going on, I said I wasn’t ever going back. So, call that what you will. Why, you ask? Well, for a few reasons.

    #1-That place sucks. Plain and simple. The “team” is a joke and there are even more rules for the Mods than there are for the members. I got sick and tired of the BS. I stepped down once before and wish I hadn’t gone back. Shame on me.

    #2-To get away from all of the nastiness. I thought if I left, I would get away from this. Being brought up in conversations that have absolutely nothing to do with me. I guess you ladies are pretty interested in what’s going on with me since you all seem to notice when I was last logged in, when I last posted and what my membership status is. I had no idea I had such a fan club. I suppose I deserve some of what has been said about me here and elsewhere. Have I been a bitch in the past? You bet. Have I had personal clashes with people? Yes. I’m human. I apologize for acting that way in the past and that is sincere. No excuses. Just an apology.

    #3- I had some unfortunate events happen in my life and I realized how much all of this does NOT matter in the big picture. A bunch of grown women sitting behind a computer screen talking to/about diapers and each other. I loved DS when I first joined and agreed to come on as a Mod because I loved how DS used to be and wanted so badly to get it back to the way it was. Unfortunately, since Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (and a few other idiots) are in charge now, that’s never going to happen. I realized it was out of my hands and that I actually didn’t care at all and just quit going back. I understand needing/wanting to have adult connection and conversation with others because being a Mom, especially staying at home, can be very lonely and isolating. But I allowed it to become much more for me (and I know many of you are in that same place) and decided that this wasn’t the place for me anymore. DS, message boards, etc. You can’t trust anyone and everyone is only out for themselves. It’s sad. I’ve made some great friends along the way and luckily still have contact with them, so it wasn’t a complete waste, thankfully.

    Now, I’ve said what I needed to say and if anyone would like to ask me about anything, feel free to email me. I’m an open book and if I had beef with you in the past, I’d like the opportunity to make amends. If you want to know something that happened while I was a Mod, just ask (countdown t being banned can start now, please) Really, email me. johntaraboyle@comcast.net But I’m asking that you all just leave me alone now. I’m not a Mod anymore and I’ve left DS which probably makes a lot of you very happy. (Makes me very happy, too!) I left for a reason and that is to be left alone. To the few of you that have been kind enough to track me down and let me know that people are looking for me/talking about me here, thank you for letting me know. I don’t care to post on this blog ever again and don’t want to read it ever again. So, if you want to say something to me or talk to me, please email me. Otherwise, just move on.

  310. backyardigan says:

    Tara who?

  311. Stacey says:

    315: LMAO! Too funny.

    All the listings are gross, but this one made me especially ill: http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=31988&vid=200001 Yuck yuck yuck.

  312. NotMeAtAll says:

    some staining, 8.00 LMAO

  313. werd says:

    wth does that woman feed her child?!?!?! Looks like spaghetti-o poops to me!!

  314. backyardigan says:

    and it’s not just the diapers, wool, clothes that are dirty though. Her carpets are filthy too. Like someone took a shit and the dog licked it up. yummm, tasty.

  315. yikes says:

    Oh my god, that stuff is DISGUSTING. Vomit.

  316. naturalmamadot says:

    lmao #321 i wanted to comment on the carpet but wasnt sure if I should because I guess I dont know if its like her mudroom or breezeway carpeting…but seriously? If Im taking pictures to sell stuff I make sure its on a white piece of fleece (super cheap, washes up well) and try to make it look as perfect as possible.

    Its not too much to ask to put effort and time into showing you take care of your things.

  317. DramaBore says:

    I think somebody tipped her off – most of her photos are gone now!

  318. InAfixx says:

    Tara, you contradict yourself. If you have gotten over this “phase” of your life (having interest in message boards, anything diaper related etc) then what are you doing addressing comments made about you here? Furthermore, why are you reading it?

    Hey, you want to kick DS to the curb – be my guest. I am quite tempted to do the same sometimes; but I would miss out on some awesome interactions there. I guess I’m happy to be a grown woman sitting behind a computer screen talking about diapers and each other.

    I’m addressing you because I know you are going to read this…contrary to what you state. We’re all creatures of habit, aren’t we?

    Does anyone other than me find it laughable, and almost a little creepy that DS Administrators “forbid” you from taking part of any website other than their own that discussed their existence in any form other than glowing positivity? Or perhaps it’s more disturbing that Moderators ACTUALLY ABIDE BY SUCH “RULES”. There is no way I would volunteer to agree to self-censorship….I’d have to be getting a hefty check in the mail to not only be the DS Police, but have my life outside of the site monitored like a felon. It’s very Jonestown-ish…don’t you think? Lee is the Jim Jones, and ya’ll are sipping the DS cool-aid. Yikes.

    Go on with your life, Tara. You’re rid of all our pettiness and nastiness now. You can run freely and uninhibited!

    FWIW, I know very little about you, nor do I pry to learn more. If it falls on my ears, so be it….but I never petitoned to have you demoted/banned or whatever else. I try to live and let live.

    Keep on keepin on, mama. Good luck to ya.

  319. naturalmamadot says:

    Someone probably thought we were harsh, but really, especially with her being a WAHM, she should know how to make something presentable to sell and where the line is to just offer it FFS (or donate).

  320. naturalmamadot says:

    #326, I have always thought it was odd that the admins/mods went along with ANY of their bullshit, before I knew the extent of it. I think all of them need some self reflection about how much they value themselves if they are allowing Lee (and his minions) to own them like that, its disturbing.

  321. mksmommy says:

    Tara I never said anything about you as a person. Just that you aren’t exactly the best choice for a mod. I’ve seen you stir the pot in the past just for the sake of doing so which and you did so even when you were a mod. Im not saying you are not allowed to have an opinion but according to DS rules you are supposed to be eliminating the drama not creating it.

  322. mksmommy says:

    And yes Im a grown woman talking about diapers to other people. I freely admit that I do have no life and truly don’t quite know how to get one. Its just not easy to find stuff to do when you are 26 w/ 3 kids and you don’t like to go to the bar.

  323. cdmd1023 says:

    #330-same here. Im 25 and have 2 kids, its so hard connecting with other moms when they are on average 10 years older then me.

  324. diudiaole says:

    #327 “sipping the DS kool-aid” LMAO

  325. DSDM2 says:

    AJ, I got your email. I can’t give that to you, BUT if you send me the one in question, I’ll tel you if it is the same.

  326. DSDM2 says:

    AJ, I’m signing on YAHOO now, please Y!M me.

  327. DSDM2 says:

    AJ, the second one is a hit.

  328. Grogwench says:

    334-337…….oooohhhh, do I smell some drama?

  329. DSDM2 says:

    Nah, just a question, lol.

  330. Crazy Mama says:

    This TH stuff is crazy! Conflicting dates, reps posting here before their own thread, what a mess. And am I the only one totally creeped out by Wendy’s avatar?

  331. AshleyB says:

    SO…mini update. TH sent me $25 in PP today to make up for gas, parking & tolls so that’s good (because that’s about what it came out to be) and now I’m waiting on the ticket. And, if anyone wants, I spoke a bit with David (the guy handling this) and he said they are open to board suggestions (PM there).

  332. diudiaole says:

    #340 — too funny :popcorn

  333. Crazy Mama says:

    Another thing that bugs me about the Seaworld mishap… what about the other mama that won? This leebetsy person? Did they go? Are they even real? Their one and only post was in the contest thread, so I’m assuming not.

  334. DSDM2 says:

    Tara, thank you for the email, I think that being honest is awesome, thank you. I can’t fault you, b/c we are anonymous too.

    Enjoy your family and your break from the drama.

  335. AshleyB says:

    #343…no clue. I’m waiting now on them to mail the ticket…though, they did PP me $25, so I *think* they are making good on this (though I wonder if I would have gotten the $$ if I hadn’t posted on here).

  336. just_sayin says:

    #343 the username is LEEbetsy? Umm, I think it’s a fake. Just a guess, but it sure looks fishy (and not very clever).

  337. AshleyB says:

    **update** I wanted to post the comment update here, as this is the thread that had the Totally Her drama. I did get the Sea World ticket in the mail yesterday. Have not used it yet, but did receive it!
