. . . "inspiration" . . .

. . . occasionally i am
{wrongfully}
accused of being creative . . .
. . . when, in reality,
i'm just occasionally lucky
in finding/borrowing/out&out stealing
other people's ideas . . .
. . . rarely do i copy them exactly . . .
. . . really they just provide inspiration . . .
{is inspiration a nice word for plagiarism?}
. . . anyway, as i was
preparing to teach
a young women lesson
on service,
i came across this little ditty . . .

. . . which reminded me of

this recently-viewed blog post . . .. . . which lead to this "tweak" . . .. . . which ended up like this . . .
. . . p.s. if you buy costco roses

in arizona

on a saturday afternoon

in august

and they are tight buds

but they look like this

by sunday morning,

they are NOT going to last long . . .

. . . to my cute laurel girls ~

sorry for the half-dead flowers . . .

How cute is that???? I love it...I may have to borrow this idea...I don't think ideas can be copyrighted can they? I wish I was one of your laurels! Very very cute!

I did a handout for this lesson too...but the cuteness factor was, uh, missing apparently. hahaha. You are amazing.

Brilliant!
(I spent the afternoon with my Irish VT comp today)

I must also say that you BY FAR out did your "inspiration".

Honestly... you just keep doing it don't you... sometimes i just want to puke all over you crazy creative types. Even with stealing, I got nuthin. Love em Steph- so cute!

Such a darling idea. About once a year I accidently come up with an original idea too. It's so good for my self esteem.
