Default Re: OK, I'm just not getting this!!

I'm glad to see this thread because it brings up something I've been wondering about for a while. Why are so many people on here so scared to help others? Sure, I'm not a professional. This is a fun, obsessive hobby for me. I love making things for dd and friends' daughters. So, I guess you can say that's easy for me to say.

However, I have been very successful in an extremely competitive career as a classical musician. So I have seen competition for work to the extreme. It may be different in the crafting arts, but from what I've learned in the musical arts, those who are successful are also those who are very open to helping others. I look at it this way, build a great network by being helpful and kind. You are helping someone and it will come around with a reward someday. OR, don't help others out, and in some way, you'll be bitten in the ass for it in the end.

Bella, you are awesome!
