You should give credit where credit is due. Liz Marie did this exact project 4 days ago.
The Slammed Blogger Says:
Oh snap. I just got told. If I had copied another blogger, I’m the 1st person that would give credit where credit is due. But thanks for assuming that A) I actually know who Liz is, B) assuming that I copied someone and didn’t give them credit.
I guarantee you I did not copy Liz. Gluing coffee filters to inanimate objects is not a brand new thing. We all assume we are the one to invent something when in reality, this lamp shade was probably invented 50 years ago.
I ALWAYS give credit to other bloggers. Always. I am not that person who rips someone off and pretends I invented it. But thanks for the accusation. I appreciate that.
Well, at least thanks for introducing me to a great blog. Liz’s blog seems like one I will enjoy reading. If I ever link to her I’ll make sure I give you full credit.
Also, I tried to email you privately about this, but your email address is FAKE. I’m sensing a troll?
Oh, one more thing… in my coffee filter wreath post TWO WEEKS AGO I wrote this at the end… “And I’ve got one more awesomely cool project in the works with the remainder of my 250 filters. Hopefully I’ll finish soon so I can show it off to you. ”
How can I copy someone before they even post about it?
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Can you come back to me after I compose myself please? HAHAHAHAHA

I love how the commenter assumes that simply because she saw something, that thing is the Original Thing. I don't want to delve into murky areas like narcissism or other personality disorders (cuz' attending the Snap Out Of It! school of thought does not qualify me to make psychological judgments...) but it seems to me that there is a sociopathic screw loose. Alison, you keep on doing what you're doing.
(Just please try not to use paint, wood, glue, fabric, glitter, or coffee filters. Oh! Or burlap!....)
Sorry cute girl but there is no way on this planet that Allison is going to check every blog ever created to see if someone has done this. If she is like most she has no time to even read all the blogs in her reader let alone blogs that aren’t on her radar. There are lots of creative bloggers out there and no idea is truly original…unless I come up with it.

"Two wrongs don't make a right. You are all bashing this woman and making fun of her."
Um, yes Karl. We are making fun of her. Your powers of observation are incredible. I'm sure that with such keen perceptive skills, you have noticed that this blog's sole purpose is to "out" mean or rude comments; to let a little sunlight into the room, so to speak. "Stealing" someone's idea is a hefty accusation... especially if That. Is. Not. What. Happened with Allison's lampshade.
Yay for using your name instead of "Anonymous"
Boo for being of the No-Reply Comment tribe and Boo for not having a profile so that we can contact you directly, as opposed to outing you here.

OH SNAP! You just got told! And to the rest of you….can you see why I love this girl so dang much?
