Other People are Thinking Like Me

If you truly knew me, the title of this post might scare you a bit...

Seriously, though, it's always a little weird when you're cruising around the world wide web and you bump into ideas that you were sure nobody else but you would think of.  My dad once told me that there is no such thing as original music anymore. It's all been done and anything "new" now is simply an adaptation of other works. Perhaps this is true of the handmade world in some way.

With my talent for tatting and living in a Native American family, I'm always thinking of ways to combine the two worlds.  On a whim, I decided to do a search on Etsy for "tatted feather." Two of the results surprised me. They looked like things I had thought about making.

Tatting with real feathers attached? Dang...KnotTherapy did that!

Tatted necklace with dangling metal feather charms? Frog Holler beat me to that one!

Maybe we're all tuned into the same inspirational feed from the universe..
