Haven't you read tons of blog posts about artists or crafters who argued who's the first to come up with an idea? Many of us have been there, but we should also remember that most of our ideas, whether we are conscious of it or not, come from some other sources from the past. Inspiration comes from so many places, people and experiences. We've had to evolve, morph, and update old-fashioned techniques and applications, but that's the natural progression of creating.
We'd like to give some of the credit for some of the sources that inspire us and act as a launching pad for some of our current crafting ideas. Here are some of the books from the Parcel Craft Library. Some even date back to the Victorian Era.
