iPICKS #142

Welcome to iPICKS where I post a selection of my favorite Stampin' Up! cards and projects by other talented stamping artists. There's no formal rules or guidelines ... just inspiring projects that catch my eye, clever ideas, and exceptional designs. These are projects that inspire me and I hope they inspire you too! Please click on each link to go directly to the artist's blog for more information about the artist and their project.

I think it is really crappy that you take other peoples projects and post them to get your blog ratings up. Why don't you just post your OWN projects rather than trying to benefit from other people's hard work.

Nancy it is a pity that Anonymous doesn`t appreciate the fact that you give full credit and links to the original artist`s work. Without your site, I would never have come across so many wonderful and inspiring blogsites! Thank you for spotlighting these amazingly talented artists for us!!

I LOVE that you take the time to check out other people's blog (blogs that I might not have known about) and bring it to all of us !! I'm ALWAYS inspired by the ideas that you have gathered together for us !!!

So as far as I'm concerned...Anonymous can go pound salt !!! I know that's a little harsh but her "anonymous" comment was as well!

Love you, Nancy !!!

Hi Nancy: I'm always tickled to make THE list :) I feel fully credited and honored when chosen! Hugs, Mary Fish

Kristi said...

I, for one, appreciate that you post these every week. I have found so many new blogs to follow because of it!

I don't think I've ever posted on your blog, but I follow it religiously! :) After reading anonymous' comment, I felt the need to add my supportive comment to the rest of the ladies and let you know I appreciate that you share what you find, and include the links that will help us to get to their blogs. I too have found so many wonderful blogs to "stalk" because of the wonderful talents you showcase on your blog. It's sad that those who wish to put you down are too chicken to include their own names. It would definitely be "crappy" if you put other people's work on your blog and tried to take credit for it. So, thank you for taking your valuable time to share with us what you find that is beautiful and inspirational and allowing us to go to their blogs (thus leaving your blog for a while - um... how does that benefit you?) If you were to be inspired by my long-ago-forgotten blog, I would be honored to be spotlighted on your blog. Ohhh, maybe I just touched on that nerve! Maybe anonymous is just jealous that you've never spotlighted HER work on your blog! hee hee

Obviously "annonymous" will remain "annonymous" for a reason....she is definitely in the MINORITY here! I am SO APPRECIATIVE of you posting your iPicks. To be chosen by you is such an honor! Sometimes when I just don't have the time to sit and go through blogs, in the back of my mind I think, "That's ok, Nancy will find the best ones and post them!" Keep up the great work Nancy, I KNOW how much time it takes to peruse blogs, then post and link the cards to where you found them. Any blogger knows how much time and effort is put into this! You are so awesome...on that note, did you know that I only have to wait 6 more days and I will get to see the most awesome projects on iPicks! I can hardly wait!

Just wanted to add one more "We love you, Nancy!!". You always give full credit to the artist with a link to their blog. Thanks for taking the time to share your favorite projects with us. There are many that I would miss otherwise and in fact, you're doing such a service to those artists who are probably getting huge exposure that they may not otherwise get. Don't let one sour comment get you down! You are wonderful!

I have never left a comment before but I should have- to say THANK YOU for doing what you do- I love that you find the best of the best and share with us- and I am sure the designers are thrilled that you pick their projects to share. Anonymous is wrong- you do a great service and please don't stop!

Debbie L said...

Your blog is the first one I go to each week to get ideas from you and your picks! Don't let one rude comment take away from the fantastic blog you have. It takes a lot of work to assimilate your "favorite" picks for the week and I like it. When I find the one I like, I go to that website. Thanks for all your hard work.

Pam Cregeen said...

Keep up the good work. I love that you take the trouble to search out all those beautiful designs for us all to share. Pam

Dear Nancy, I *LOVE* i-picks. keep up the good work!

mJo said...

Dear Nancy,
I am a lurker on blogs and am one of your fans. I love the cards you choose, and sometimes follow up on the original blog. You always give them credit so they should feel good about being chosen so we can followup with them. In such a busy world, I appreciate the fact that you spend hours looking at all these cards so I cans spend a few minutes. Thank you! Please keep doing what you are doing!

Rachel said...

Keep doing what you're doing! Obviously the majority of us love and appresiate your blog, and those who don't, can surf elsewhere!

If Anonymous is a blogger that's been featured on iPicks and no longer wants her work featured, she needs to have the maturity to simply ask that her blog be excluded... anonymous posts change nothing.

If Anonymous is simply a blog reader, she needs to find a blog more to her liking... no reason to make an anonymous attack on Nancy. Nancy has done absolutely nothing wrong... and is in fact doing a great service for her readers by showcasing the talents we would have otherwise missed. A one stop blog hop EVERY week! I would think that an artist would be honored to have her work chosen to be showcased in this manner.

Dear anonymous...your words mean nothing if you don't stand behind them! One of my favourite quotes..."he who throws dirt loses ground?

Dear Nancy,

I love that you love cherry picking the best of the best nd posting them. Then I don't need to click on everythin I only need check out your blog first. Keep up the good work and don't let "anonymous" twit get your dander up. You can't please everyone. May they go and find stuff they like and leave us alone. We are having a great time thanks to you.
Love you lots,
SG

I for one love this! I love checking out pinterest and other people's art but never go back because everyone is not out of control with their art every time. This is the site I want to bookmark. I don't want to look at everyone's blog scanning for the very best...I just want to come here. I love that anonymous posted..now people that normally wouldn't leave a comment now do! Does Nancy do this to increase her blog feed? I don't know but I guarantee she increases the other people blog feeds but this is the only one I will bookmark. Thanks Nancy!
