I don't think you should be upset. You know all these pansies are sensitive, just look at FOODRAP for example.

You're talking about what, 1-2 people saying something. Most people in the obey seem to focus on either foodrap or obey, and flips of course. Hell, egt was just talking about how happy he was of some recent obey's flipping. None of that really matters. I like EGT, I like you, I like flipping sometimes, just is. I don't think your bags have been blackballed.

Take a deep breath and just click the link in numbnutz's signature.

He has made $$$ off of Peanuts and other copy written material.

He's obviously the legalitarian...

I love the bags I got from you. I only wish you made some that are longer. Like 3" x 24". I can't stand most of these bush league bag sellers using rice or sand or some fudge.

What I really want is a bag full of lead shot. Nice and heavy and inorganic.

I won't lie. In the past, I'd sell prints to buy more supplies. Right now, I'm selling because I lost my job quite sometime ago. Then...the slow-down, (to non-existence), of bag orders - it's difficult to keep a positive outlook.

Okay. Thanks.

Thanks. I'm glad you like them. Is that a typo? 3" x 24"? :shock: When finances allow, I'll experiment with that size. Can't do it right now, though.

Yeah they are long skinny bags. If you start making some, I'll buy them. I still have the ones you made me a long time ago but I'd like some larger bags too.

Yeah Sue, just take a deep breath. One member made one off-handed comment about your "bootleg bags." Nobody else said a word until you asked about being blackballed, and I asked why you thought you were being blackballed. That's all that happened. I guess your sales are down and you're annoyed at that? I wouldn't blame it on some imaginary EB blackball tho. By now I would think most people here already have them if they want them.

Edit...now seeing you've got some other stuff going on and it's got you down. Hang in there sister.

Annoyed isn't the right word to use - more like devastated.

I'm a tough gal and I don't usually let things bother me. I love sewing, making bags...kinda' breaks my heart to see it go.

I'll get over it.

Don't quit. I like the bags I got from you. At some point, I was planning on ordering a few more. Just haven't gotten around to it

Was the bag gravy train really rolling that strong for a while? Figured this was more of a small time hobby at best. I still use my bags, and recommend that all nubs buy them from IWish. My guess on why sales have dropped is that there's other players in the market now, and they're prolly more aggressive at selling. Some fuggin dude was advertising a bag sale at MondoCon or some fudge.

On the bright side, your chances of getting a new job have to be about a million times higher than foodie's.

Thanks for the nice words. I'm over it. I'll just have to think of something else.

I think I sent you the zombie bags a long time ago. I believe I sent you the 'Breaking Blue', (unfilled), bags too in the same box. Since they weren't filled - you didn't know what they were. I remember I told you they were "peen warmers". :lol:

I love my IWish Bags ! I have three sets... don't think I'll need more, but I would recommend them to anyone in need. Also my Daughter rocks a Mood ring pin on her coat that Iwish made :)

Yeah, I have seen people who have some long enough to go along the short edge of a 24x36 print. That's what I am looking for.
