I understand where you're coming from. I was the first person to come up with a crochet shoe that resembled a croc. The only problem is, any and everything is up for changing 10% and becoming their "own" unless you patent it. The problem is, the time to do this and the money to do it is not worth my while, and probably not worth yours now either. Took less than 6 months for someone to see my idea and do the same. This is a competitive world and I've just become used to it I guess..might be the easiest way for you to handle it as well
However, if someone is stealing your actual pictures and pawning it off as their own or your tutorial 100%, not changing anything, then I completely agree with your utter frustration. Seriously, get a life people
Sorry, I will step down from my soapbox now

The person that has been copying me has over 60-70% maybe more of the same tutorial links/pictures I have on my blog. This is so
crap why can not people come up with their own
original ideas instead of taking all my hard work and copying it. This person I believe only started this in April or sometime around there.
Here is my blog: http://fabricbowsandmore.blogspot.com/
