Copy Cat

I'm a terrible blogger.  Especially now that things are so busy and crazy.  But because of the crazy, busy part, I feel that I can justify copying a blogging idea from one of my friends and co-workers.  Facebook now has the "25 random things about me" (that you probably didn't ever care to know, but if we're honest you read them anyway).  So my next 25 or so blogs are going to each have one random fact about me (I can imagine how excited you already are).  

Random #1 - While we're on the subject, I'm a piggybacking kind of girl.  I'd like to call myself creative, but I can openly admit that most of my ideas come from an original idea that I've heard from someone else.  The majority of the time I end up customizing my idea to make it my own, but the bottom line is that I am spurred on by others' creativity.  

I would go as far to say that I get most of my fashion and clothes ideas from others.  I know it drives my sister nuts, but I love to take note of what she wears and how she wears it so that I can do something similar.  (Ok - that sounds a little stalker-ish, but it's true.  She's a fashionista.)  Whereas she can create an outfit on her own, I've got to watch her!  I also keep a journal, which I've talked about in a previous post, that is comprised of other peoples' creative endeavors and ideas that I am taking as my own.  It's entries vary from wedding ideas to baby room ideas to party ideas to decor ideas, etc.  

So if you have any creative thoughts that you don't want me to steal, you'd better tell me now. Otherwise, I'd like to think you'll take it as a compliment. :)  Oh, and you should check out Devon's blog to see her top 25 random things.  She's quite the writer, so I think you'll enjoy!
