If you are a creative person you've been copied. Creative ideas are contagious. Back when I was a young Mommy and running my house I had a friend who copied whatever I did. If I made a wreath and put it on my front door, she bought one... When I got the first Market umbrella, one appeared on her deck shortly there after. When I bought legging and tunic outfits for my daughters with the big grosgrain ribbon headbands, she bought her daughters just the big headbands.(OK it WAS the '80s) I wouldn't have minded but her stuff was always more expensive than mine. Plus she never acknowledged it.
We all watched Greenbean Baby and her case of having her art copied.
Recently a miniturist used a gift in a scene from another. She didn't think to say where it was from and the giftgiver called the other a thief. Painful. I hope something was lost in translation.
We all grow from each other. Usually, I feel complimented when some one copies me. I think I may have used some wording I read on Pioneer Woman's blog http://thepioneerwoman.com/ because it was so catchy.
And the next blog I am posting about was covered by someone else. It is about a public exhibit my friend took me to and I can't remember where I saw it. SF Girl by bay? http://www.sfgirlbybay.com/
PS read these blogs if you don't already...
So if you posted about this exhibit email me and I will include a link in my post to your blog. Thanks CM
