Blogging Soapbox

I really love sharing ideas and getting inspiration from others. I mean creativity leads to creativity. I need to work on my ability to not pick up offenses. It truly bothers me when others do not credit their source of inspiration. I LOVE the relationships I have made in blogworld. Let's be honest about these bloggers that post a "new" tutorial daily... really, not all of their ideas are truly their own ideas. I love having someone else spark my creativity, isn't that why we read crafty blogs to begin with? Just give credit where credit is due. I am not just speaking for my own small blog, but other small bloggers as well. I have seen many out and out thefts of ideas lately, and a lot of these are from bloggers that are strict with their so-called "copyrights".
*I just needed to get this vent off my chest... it has been keeping me from wanting to post anything and I really should be blogging too :)

Why Didn't I Think of This?

*Photo from the Mother Huddle

I seriously HOARD vintage linens so when I saw this a light bulb seriously went off. Why didn't I think of this! Such a simple, yet sweet idea. No need to cut into my great grandmas hankies, just knot them together and put them on display! I am seriously in love! Now I have to go dig through my basement totes to find them ;)

I Like to Keep it Real

Because I would never want anyone to feel like I am perfect or have it all together, LOL, here are some crazy pics of me and my mom cleaning and reorganizing my crafty loft. Enjoy and feel a little better about yourself and your tidy work space.Oh yeah it was that bad! And this was after we removed a ton of stuff!The sheets were sorted into their own bins and moved to the basement. I have a hoarding issue going on.

My mom completely buried (and blurry) during the fabric sort.

It looked great for a few weeks... I need to tidy and decorate so I can share my incredible fabric storage my mom hooked me up with :)
