nice words by ErinBird nice words by ErinBird
I've had a few people on dA sending me mean messages like "your work is so s**t" and "get off dA you pathetic girl" and such , and it's really got me down and I feel in no mood to upload . Despite it all , I just ignore them anyway and just carry on because there are so many of you who send me such lovely messages , and I really want to thank you (: There were actually some people on tumblr who sent me really nice messages , anonymous and not , and I really want to say thank you to them too because you really brightened up my day (: and this quote is true , a few nice words can really make someone much happier .

Since I'm trying to do quotes in different ways , I saw this picture of masking tape on wood . I really liked it and tried it out myself (: I changed the message on the tape though . The picture is kind of lousy , but this awful cold is making me so tired and uncreative .

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

How could people say that about you?? I don't really know you, but you seem like a really nice and awesome person. Don't listen to those morons, they're probably just jealous. ;u;
Love this quote, by the way. :D

so very true...and nicely layed out!  I think that the "roughness" of the image adds to the specialness of the message.  definitely a keeper where when one thinks it's not so good, turns out to be really good!!! :thumbsup:

I definitely like it, but you should always feel free to play around with an image of yours; what about it would you like to change, and why?  lol no trick question, just curious. :sun:

though it is on the surface simple, the impact is huge, art is in the eye of the beholder anyway. don't let strangers hold you back, what do you know about these ppl, they could be insane, but give some one anonymity and a keyboard and look at what they go and do, forget them, why give so much value to what amounts to ghosts who know probably nothing about you who made a baseless judgement about you

So true! I have discovered for myself that it helps if you say something nice to someone, it might not even much to you, but they take the moment precious. And when they tell you, you made them smile, it makes you feel great.
About those meanies, they just want to be as popular as you are... envy can be such a pain in the... ;) <3

Oh man, I'm sorry you are getting that kind of messages! I think these are either people who aren't simply "getting it" or feel that what you're doing isn't "art" or something. And they are mistaken if so. Art comes in many ways and believe me, the things you have posted during your 365 day project were really artistic - some of them even genius productions. The way you can capture things in life, do creative things with words and otherwise non-interesting objects... this is art. Just as much as when someone draws something, or another writes a poem or story. You are gifted at your photography, creativity and interpretation, at finding good quotes (even when they're often something you ran into and didn't come up with yourself). You deserve to be here and I would dare to say your work is more inspiring than some other things that I see around - so you can safely pat yourself on the shoulder and ignore comments from people who detest your works. Chances are they are even jealous they can't have your skill or that with THEIR artwork they're not as popular as you. I myself am not as popular as you either - I never made the front page with my artwork (yet at least) but it does maybe have its advantages as well. The MORE watchers / page visitors you have, the higher the risk also to get a so called 'rotten apple' in the basket. If someone is/keeps bothering you, you can simply put them onto the BLOCK list to prevent them from commenting and contacting you again. (ask me if you need to know how, but you can also find it in the FAQ). Even though I'm not as popular as you on dA (just reached my 500 watchers, yay! ^^) I did have to block someone once - for my own peace. I tried to reason with him first, to politely work it out but the person was just set on insulting me. Well, good riddance then. Keep up the great work, ErinBird! =) Lot of people love it!

You're most welcome. When I see things like this happen, or when people need help, I'm usually the person to try and help if I can. I know how it is to be picked upon and don't take these things lightly. Having that said, I'm also truthful and all I have said is true. I don't like to lie to people just to make them feel better - that's just not how I work. :)

Thanks for the congratulations! And once again, you're welcome!

It is important to remember people that post negative remarks to you are doing so because they have a problem. Best advice is always to ignore it and don't answer them no matter how bad it gets.

if you don't fuel the flames they will soon tire of it and move on.

These sorts of people are cowards and don't face up to things so they hide in the shadows trying to make people feel as miserable as they feel inside.

:heart: you are awesome Erin.

Oh Erin... don't worry about them. Anyone who decides to say stuff like that isn't worth your time or your sorrow. People that send hurtful messages are just miserable lost souls that gain happiness from other's misery. I know that words will hurt, and it is nice to have people there to give a few kind words to lift you up. I was made fun of and called terrible things when I was younger. I still remember these few guys that made me feel terrible every single day, and they made fun of me for everything, whether it was something i drew, made, or something I wore. Their words hurt me... and what made it worse was that my friends stood by and watched. No one ever tried to help me. I am going into high school next year and I am always trying to make people feel better {because I know how it feels to be pushed down}... with just a few kind words. I have learned in life that you should never look down on someone unless you are helping them up. I am sorry that people sent you such horrible messages! You should always just ignore people like that and keep on moving, even though it can be hard sometimes! I hope you don't stay down for too long! You are so amazingly talented! Stay happy and don't worry about haters... they will be everywhere, and you just have to put up with them, because they never go away... :heart: :hug:
