We get real and raw with organic stationery queen Shasta of Shasta Bell Calligraphy and discuss the difference between inspiration and copying. As artists, we’ve all experienced this in some form, whether we spotted a dupe, got “inspired” by someone else or noticed our work being replicated. We open up about our mistakes, clear the air about when it’s okay to copy, give tips on what to do if you are copied and brainstorm where to find inspiration. (HINT: it’s not Instagram!) We hope this episode helps clarify why copying is stifling your business and your creativity and inspires you to create from the heart!
