Oh That’s Why People Are So Into Owls!

As aforementioned, I’m making a bunch of baby quilts. Not for babies I know, but to sell and/or as a template for a class I’m doing at the end of the month.  This is the first -an Owl Quilt. Somehow it ended up in crazy 70’s colors ~ goes great with Fleetwood Mac, hold the cocaine.  Though I do like it. And, I realized why everyone is gaga for owls.

Are you aware of this? There are craft fads! Search on Etsy for “Owls” and every single item for sale on Etsy will come up. Somehow, everyone in America simultaneously wanted to make and to buy an owl potholder, owl earrings, owl Christmas ornament, owl dog cozy, what have you. At first I resisted.

But that owl is really cute. And it was SO EASY. Just a couple circles.  So, now I want to make more owls. I’m not sure they’re cool anymore though? Etsy tracks these things for you. According to them, January is a good month for “birds, owls, squirrels, hedgehogs, chipmunks, bunnies, butterflies, feathers, nests, eggs, acorns, leaves, trees, branches, woodgrain, and natural colors.”

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
