Coincidence or Copying?

Yesterday I was extremely peed off.  I discovered that there is someone out there, doing something so similar to Cuggles, that I just couldn't believe it was a coincidence.

Today I reminded myself about my previous life as a corporate recruiter.  I took pride in being successful and professional, I didn't give a hoot what the competition were doing.  It was just irrelevant to me, even when I would hear about the tricks some of them got up to.  It never mattered because I knew that I would just continue to do the right thing and karma would sort things out.

I've decided that I'm going to keep that same positive attitude for Cuggles and I'm honestly going to give the person the benefit of doubt.

Here's cheers being original.


  1. That’s terrible – but staying positive about it is a great plan.

  2. ohh no, that isn't very nice!
    you have a great approach to it though, well done & keep on creating the beautiful things you do.

  3. Oh, that bites. Rise above it, as they say. (I'm sure your quality is better anyway :b)

  4. I'd love to know what is being copied so I can buy YOUR version of it!

  5. Thank you for your support lovelies. I meant it when I said that I would honestly give benefit of the doubt. All I will say is that it is not someone I know or had ever heard of before Tuesday and it is not someone in Handmade Heaven. The issue is something more fundamental to my business than just doing a different take on a product. That's why I was so upset... and the preggie hormones don't help!
