Hmmm, You Got Me Thinking

Thinking about what I want to make next...I have been perusing Pinterest, blogs--being inspired by so many talented folks. Remember, Pinterest does not produce or create these things--people do--hard working, creative folks who put their hearts into what they do.  It is important and ethical to try to find the original source of an idea and give credit where credit is due.  Recently a blogging friend let me know that some of my pallet projects were on Style Estate without any link to my blog. After letting them know that it was not ok to use my photos without some credit, they quickly and courteously resolved it and linked to the blog.  I appreciate that.  I understand that sometimes it is hard to find the original source, but it is worth the effort.  I also find it odd and wrong to link up other people's projects in linky parties, even when credit is given.  I have found my projects linked where I have already linked the project myself.  What are you thoughts on this?

Here are a few things that caught my eye and inspired me:
I want to make this table runner from Shanty 2 Chic.
DIY Table Runner
I am thinking about recreating something like this from A Spotted Pony in my entry, for people tack, not horse.
I love using this little part of the pallet--from Recycleart
10 Pallet candle jar decoration in wood pallets 2 accessories  with pallet decoration candle jar
Seaside Interiors pet bed reminds me that I need to bust some pet beds out before the shows I have coming up--they are always an easy sell.
Love this simple planter box from Hipcycle.
Planter made from reclaimed wood.
Time to go build something...stay tuned!


  1. I agree wholeheartedly with you about giving credit to the source. I think a lot of people pin directly from the blog where someone is featured rather than going back to the original source to pin. I'm sad to hear that your creations have been shared as other people's on the same link party. Ya gotta wonder why someone would do that! Blessings to you and have a great week creating, Patti@OldThingsNew

  2. Yay that you got the credit for that post. ;) All of these are great projects! Lots of inspiration going on.
    I'm always anxious to see what you come up with Becky!

  3. Hi Becky, thanks so much for sharing my doggy bed amongst these other great ideas, Helen :0)
