You know how I feel, Lyndsey! I love your cakes and thought the one you made for me was absolutely amazing to say the least! She's jealous. Most likely a competitor. Blow it off, save the emails, and go from there.

Some people just can't give kudos where they belong! Keep makin those cakes! Makes me wanna have another baby.......NOT![img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

Now youhad my empathy till this post...I was like the 3rd response here telling you to file a report. But why stir it up on the board? It has been so peaceful here. You should have contacted the board admin with you evidence and let them handle. I can only image the pm's flying back and forth now. tsk..tsk..Edited by: loli

Everyone has given you awesome advice, I would say do just as they have advised. I just checked out your cakes and they are freakin adorable!!!!![img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img]

This chic quite obviously has WAY too much time on her hands and is obviously a miserable person who needs to hurt someone else to make herself feel better. For what ever reason, your her target at the moment. If you ignore her, she will get bored and move on to the next victim.
Not to mention she's the one who belongs in a mental institution if she thinks those cakes are ridiculous! [img]smileys/smiley29.gif[/img]

I wouldn't respond EVER again, no matter what she says to you. By responding at all, I hate to say it, but you played right into her game.

You're cakes are adorable, you have real talent and have marketed your business in a very professional manner.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of unhappy, insecure, irrational weirdos in the world, and I think we all have had the unpleasant experience of bumping into one in SOME point in our lives.

Just giggle and move on. You don't have the problem, she does..

Lyndsey first off.. get out of your head that you are ever going to think of quitting your business because of this nutcase. All that would be doing is giving her the satisfaction of winning in this ridiculous game she's playing with you. She's got issues plain and simple. IGNORE HER!!!! Don't respond back. Continue to keep all the info as you said you are. If it keeps up take further actions, but don't ever contact her yourself. All that will do is feed the problem more.

You have a wonderful business with BEAUTIFUL diaper cakes. This is a woman who is jealous and seems to be trying anything to bring you and your business down. She's a liar! She has the issues.

Keep your head up and your confidence high...your business will continue to be successful, even if insecure nut jobs try to bring you down.

Thank you all so much! I really appreicate all of your responses. You have allput a smile on my face.

She acutally emailed me again todaywith my pictures attached to the email saying that my pictures are not safe on my websiteand that she can do whatever she wants with them.I didn't email her back and i'm not going to. She can sit and spin for all I care. Yes, I have to admit she is makin my blood boil to no end but I am the better person here. I also contacted the police and they said it was up to me weither I want to press charges and if I do it will go in front of a judge. I am gonna give it a little longer and if she keeps up her crap I am filing charges.Edited by: MySweetScents

This has happened to me on this board too. I filed formal complaints from the minute it happened though, had posts removed, filed formal complaints with the police, as well as suppliers and any others that may have been affected.( I haveNO reservations about going in front of a judge.) I have been in business too long and worked too hard to let anybody make me second guess myself.
You have a great website and really creative products. Don't let some sociopathic personality spoil that for you!

I bought the LadyBug cake for a co-worker in August. It was the cutest cake ever & I plan on ordering more in 2008.
(I had a feeling it was somehow connected to this board)

Yes, I have emailed her back but

would she bring my kids into this? She doesn't even know me! I don't
have a personality disorder but when you p*ss me off your right I will
be a b*itch. Know what I mean! If i'm not mistake I think she is coming

Lyndsey, I agree with what everyone has said about your business. Your product is great, you worked hard to build it and that's that.....Your business should go on without any consequence from this.

However, I think you can pretty much forget about bringing charges at this point, because law enforcement will also look at your contribution to these exchanges. Above she is claiming she asked you to stop and you claim the same. If there's been hateful email exchanges between the two of you - justified or not - then someone has got to stop sending the emails. So block her email address, send them to junk mail and do not open them anymore. What you don't read will not affect you!

In business you've got to expect someone to not like your product or to be jealous - whatever. I think the first mistake was answering her 1st hateful email. It's one thing to converse with an unhappy customer to try and rectify a problem, but this gal didn't warrant any recognition whatsoever.

I'm glad you're being the bigger person. I hope she goes away. Feel better!
