Anyway, I think everyone here comes off strong because you are posting this on a forum FULL of crafty ladies who work very hard to make unique items. I personally would not consider a person crafty if they could only make items by buying them and copying them (or even looking at pictures and copying them).

I think everyone here has searched Etsy, Ebay, Google, craft shows, department stores, etc. at least once and noticed something that sparked a little inspiration to create their own unique item. Being crafty is having a vision in your head and being able to make something out of it. Not studying an object or picture and recreating it.

Too many of us here have had our ideas outright stolen and copied so it does strike a nerve in many of us when someone comes here and says they are doing exactly that.

exactly. so many of use have fallen victim to copy cats and it is frustration. Jessica I would not take what anyone is saying personally. Creative woman really can come off a bit harsh because they spend a lot of time and energy trying to come up with an idea. I do not think asking about how to make a carrot is a bad question. she was being honest by saying she saw one in a store and bought it. Honestly i am sure many of us are going to go in our craft room tonight and try the carrot!!!
