I found a website recently that has clocks made with paper and wood. Now, I'm aware that I didn't invent the idea of clocks made with paper, but I do know that this person has been on my site and that she only recently started making these clocks. Maybe she was inspired by my work and decided to start making her own. Maybe she already HAD the idea and I have nothing to do with it.
Her clocks are made with patterned papers, and some even feature words, but I'm not sure if the patterns are her own designs or something she purchased. The patterns she uses look nothing like mine, but it just left me with a bad feeling.
There's really nothing I can do about it except to continue to come up with new ideas and stay one step ahead. I just needed to vent, and to ask what you would do if you found something like this?
