Bobbie sent me this story and asked if she could post it on her blog. After reading it, I wanted to be sure lots of you were able to read it. So, here’s Bobbie’s story…enjoy!
To my LolliShop Friends:
Beginning on September 8, 2008, the day I joined the LolliShops Guild
..I wondered how long it would take for me to make 100 friends….seemed like
a lot to me!! I mean there were nearly 600 or more members when I joined. I was sure it would be months!!
friends grow or climb the ladder to 100.
planting the seeds to grow the business! 🙂 he,he Last week, October 8th my LolliShops Friends Ladder ……reached 100..funny…one
Friends” story and send them a little something special. It would be sort of like a giveaway in reverse…nobody knew what I was planning.
But then, how fair is that to all my friends who had been hanging onto the ladder while I was waiting for number 100.
This has been a lot of fun. The positive attitudes that the members here at LolliShops Guild are so encouraging and welcoming its no
wonder I filled up my ladder in just one month!!! Just image what the future holds!!!
How sweet is that?
I remember telling Lori Karla at the beginning of summer, that I wanted to create a marketplace where we could sell our creations, vintage & supplies–yes–but more importantly, where like minded artists could support one another. A marketplace that was community driven–not based on competition. This story encourages me that we are headed in that direction with LolliShops–it’s been a sweet ride so far.

I have been in love with all things handmade for as long as
I can remember. I enjoy working with a variety of creative
mediums. I am challenged by using the unusual or unexpected
and creating something others might enjoy.
I am currently working on an E-Book….”Repurposing”.
It is my hope to inspire creativity by taking once used
tossed away items and finding the beauty in
that item and making into something to be treasured again.
Teaching or instructing is dear to my heart. For several
years I gave workshops on my designs. And my hope is
that I can once again teach through my website and the
E-Books I hope to continue to produce.
Meeting people from all over has been so much fun. I look forward
to what the future holds here at LolliShops Guild. It
has been inspiring getting to know all of these talented women!
I can’t wait to see what’s down the road.
