WFMW: I Steal Things

So what has worked for me these last few months is actually attempting to replicate some of the super cool things people share on their blogs.  The photo below is of chunky crayons we made from old crayons - they were cute, but as soon as you tried to color with them, their tails and heads broke off.  Yep.  I'm a total copy-cat.  That's me.  The sad thing is...my creations don't always turn out the way the original blogger's did.

T and I made a Mini Office inspired from Jimmie's Collage:

Gound Hog Day Fun totally stolen from Gourmet Mom on the Go:

I tried to make Bakerella's Cake Pops...this was the best I could do (but, hey, they tasted delicious!):

And here The Pioneer Woman comes to my rescue for my birthday girl:

Easter Sweetness Fun with Peeps courtesy of Gourmet Mom on the Go:

Homemade Serenity helped me feel crafty with string eggs:

So there you have it.  My confession.  And these are only SOME of what I've stolen within the last couple of months!  I know.  It's a problem.  If only I could have some clever thoughts of my own!

    I totally agree with you about loving things other people do. I just don't feel guilty about it. Life is all about sharing with others, including their great idea. (Aren't you glad someone shared how to sew so we have great clothes to wear?) Although I never feel like I come up with my own ideas, I can sometimes tweak a different idea so it works better. That's still something! Thanks for the great post.

  2. Great post!

    I love to have endless possibilites at my fingertips! It's the best!

    Looks like you guys have a ton of fun! Oh and for what it's worth--I didn't have much luck with the cake pops either :)

  3. Isn't that why the internet, and blogs in particular, were invented - so that we could share ideas with everyone? I LOVE gleaning ideas from others, and even if my creations don't turn out the same, I still have a wonderful time and learn a lot trying them. Thanks for sharing!


I love a discussion!
