    Hi there! I LOVE all the things you make! Thanks for being here on Instructables. :) I just wanted to let you know a little tip for getting your amazing projects featured more (because your pictures and steps are just phenomenal!)...if you remove your watermark from all your photos, more than likely you will see more instructables featured. If you're worried about copyright or whatnot, don't be! In the U.S., for example, under the Federal Copyright Act of 1976, photographs are protected by copyright from the moment of creation. According to the U.S. Copyright Office, the owner of the “work” is generally the photographer or, in certain situations, the employer of the photographer. Most of the world follows the same principles. Yes, it is the internet and people will share (or even steal) your photos as their own. But c'est la vie! 9 times out of 10 they won't use your photos to make money, or cause harm to you or your business, so you need not to worry. :) I just wanted to share this tip because I love your work! And I believe it deserves to be featured :)
