Personally, I don't mind being "copied." As long as people are not taking the few free instructions I posted here and try to sell my instructions as their own, I don't really care if someone else uses my idea or copies my creation. I know what you mean about your stuff looking simailar to other people's. Sometimes I feel that mine does too. I started doing polymer clay and I make it a point not to look at too much polymer clay creations by other ladies, so that my creations can be as original as they can be (which they are not
). If I have an idea, I will just try it and learn it through trials and errors.
