MaryAnn, I would like to thank you for donating your books to each teacher at
the Elementary Division Luncheon at NAEA. It is good that you came on line to
clarify your position. Most of the recipes in your Mudworks book are so
generic that no one could claim to own them. I've been teaching classroom for
36 years and crafts at Sunday School and Vacation Bible school for many more
years . Those recipes have been around in various forms for as long as I can
remember. Having them in a collection in a very user-friendly format is time saving.
I am glad to know that you would acknowledge anyone who gave you a truly new idea.

To the list:

I can understand the firestorm. No one wants to do the work and others take
the credit/payment. I have taken some wonderful ideas from this list and
changed them to make them mine. I never did find the original post explaining
the Foil Guys to the list so that I can give proper credit. The Guys have
developed a life of their own and I am presenting at PTA tonight for Family
Art Night. We will be doing Foil Guys in the style of Giacometi. Kids have
been using their lunch foil to create these elongated sculptures.

Some times I am uneasy when someone asks for research materials. If they ask
where to look I am comfortable but to send large amounts of information to a
student who is supposed to be finding sources makes me uncomfortable.
Opinions, Experiences OK but to teachers who are searching I think we should
not each have to reinvent the wheel and when we share our research it makes
each of us do a lighter work load.

There is a back and front to everything and we don't see the whole picture at
first glance.
