This week my sweet friend Laura, from Top This Top That is joining me on the back porch. I really wish she lived closer so we could visit face-to-face instead of just virtually. Laura is a prime example the blessings of blogging. She is one of several wonderful women I have met through blogging. Here she is in her own words.
Hi there everyone and happy summer. You know that in 105 days we will be saying Happy Holidays….just saying. My name is Laura and I am happy to be chatting with you today about my blog Top This Top That.
See, I had big plans for me and my shades. For months I worked on shade samples. Months in the craft room I was creating, and strategizing how to market and sell my shades.
And then it came time to sell. Nothing. Crickets.
Hellllooooo…. anybody need a lampshade?????
I thought to myself “Surely people had lamps in their homes and would need a great shade, right”?
I guess I just couldn’t compete with Hobby Lobby’s 50% off coupon every week. And truth be told the only shades I was moving, were the one’s I was giving away… to my kids, my mom and my friends.
So Top This Top That started as a way to launch my shop (which never really opened) and share my projects from around the house. So after several donated shades to a local charity and 16 months later here we are.
Thanks Laura!! See? Isn’t she wonderful?
