Biggest Prop Order to Date! WCB for SAP

The reason I started WCB (the blog & Etsy shop) was because working for a software company in Corporate America was not very conducive to me expressing my creativity, and I needed an outlet. Even after leaving SAP, I'm still in touch with my colleagues and every so often, they reach out for a craft …

Big Props Need Love Too – 80s Gala Rockout \m/

Every year, I feel like there is a theme around a certain new craft/element that keeps reappearing throughout different orders. 2015 was the character letters, 2016 was vinyl, and one of this year's big contenders were big props. I'd never really made big props before, but it has become a staple of many orders this …

Copyright Infringement, Plagiarism, and ‘Imitation is the Most Sincere Form of Flattery’

Creating something brand new or finding truly original content/products is very hard these days. For example, think about current TV executive board meetings... In my head, they go a little something like this: TV Guy 1: Hey guys, let's talk about ideas for a new show for next fall TV Guy 2: How about we remake/reunite …
