My name is Lisa and Views from the RoofTop was orginally started as a promotional blog for my home craft business, RoofTop Creations, where I take found objects, items from nature, and cast-off materials (some people call this trash!) and repurpose these materials into useful and fun household objects.
RoofTop Creations is named for RoofTop Chalie, my sweet, faithful dog who had more love to share than he has common sense! Chalie spent the first part of his life working hard for a living as a racing greyhound in Birmingham, Alabama. His life took a turn, though, when he was repurposed to be a lazy, and cherished family pet. Chalie had never seen a car or a house. He had to learn to walk up stairs and to not bang into glass doors. His repurposed adventures had begun!
At RoofTop Creations, I believe everything has a purpose and everything can be REPURPOSED! This blog began with my adventures in crafting, recycling and salvaging (some unkind people might call this trash-picking.) It evolved, though, into a place to share my feelings and observations on life and parenting, and of course, to share about our late RoofTop Chalie and his adventures in being a real dog!
