lu_and_ed Finished up August's #creativedaily prompts! Super excited for next months photo challenge, it's gonna be so fun! 10h
  •   beewisegoods I'm in 9h
  •   poldersowm I don't understand how this works... :) 9h
  •   lu_and_ed @poldersowm you post a photo each day that correlates to the dated prompt, with your interpretation of the prompt. August firsts prompt is 'but first' so you could post how you're about to do something, but first, coffee. Lol or anything like that! It's totally open to your interpretation of the prompt! If you click the hashtag you will see the variety of content people post for the same prompts! 9h
  •   janellehardyart fun! I'm going to make one for september about bodylove, but first I'll try yours out - @OMHG 's treasure hunt was so fun too. 8h
  •   poldersowm Ahhh...that sounds fun @lu_and_ed! 8h
  •   lu_and_ed @janellehardyart so cool! If you need any help preparing for it or spreading the word let me know! 8h
  •   lu_and_ed @poldersowm it really is! I hope you'll join in! You can even start in July, the July prompts are in my feed. 8h
  •   poldersowm I'm definitely putting that in my new daytimer to do each day next month! 7h

lu_and_ed A peek into the process of Mon-stor making & a peek at one of my latest Mon-stors! This cutie is made from pajama top and bottoms that were donated to me! I can't wait to show off all the awesomeness I've been working on as I prep for my last big show of the season! Too busy sewing to take pictures but promise I'll show them all off soon! 15h

lu_and_ed Isn't this dress the cutest!? I just scooped it up for my neighbor's babe (that cute ginger I posted a pic of the other day). @penelopeseclecticcloset makes the sweetest dresses for little girls I wish it were so easy to find cute, stylish & affordable boy clothes! #amirightboymoms?! 1d
  •   lu_and_ed @shop.crmade #thestruggleisreal when it comes to finding cute AND affordable for boys. 1d
  •   pirapir_store @lu_and_ed yes 100% handmade by our mom! 1d
  •   ladylacksdesigns I have to agree with you! I have two boys and it just seems like I am buying them the same clothes over and over again! 1d
  •   princessalyss Guys in general don't have too many options. I went to get my dad a shirt for Father's Day and this is what I had to pick from a: tee shirt, polos, or a long sleeve button up. I feel like girls have more fun with clothes cuz there's so many options! 1d
  •   shop.crmade So true! 1d
  •   marsupialmama OMG that dress is adorable!! 1d
  •   lu_and_ed @princessalyss totally! And it seems like the trendy tee shirt lines for little boys don't have sizes beyond 4T or 5T! 16h
  •   lu_and_ed @ladylacksdesigns yes! It's either solid color or character shirts, basically. I'd love to see more typography designs for kids! 16h

lu_and_ed I rarely create white Mon-stors, but this guy. He's rad! I love the patch of red behind his eye - it matches the moo cow on his lining fabric. What shall his name be? 2d

lu_and_ed I was ahead on production this week, so I took the weekend off. I've spent time catching up with the #omhg gang, we've went to birthday parties, had friends over to play, we've adventured to parks & went hiking and swimming & now we're wrapping up our weekend with a wienie roast & bon fire. Filling up on goodness this weekend, before Monday and all it's madness arrives. 3d

lu_and_ed My little sunshine. 1. Just tucked this cutie in. 2. Now I'm making some mint cocoa & heading to the studio to squeeze in some sewing before bed. 3. I love my life. It's full of so much goodness. ️ tagged for #thursday3 by @pinecone_grove - I tag @melliburger @squshies & @shopzeeuh 5d

lu_and_ed Such a rad day at the zoo with friends! Now to whip up some grub for dinner (quesadillas and stuffed peppers, yum! What are you having?) then squeezing in a little monster making before bed. I hope your day as been equally awesome, friends! 6d
  •   lu_and_ed @buttonsandpaintbrushes ah! We are the same way! We never eat meat at home, but T & G eat it out and sometimes I do occasionally. Was a veg for over ten years though! 6d
  •   buttonsandpaintbrushes We save so much money not buying meat! And plus we both decided since we are animal lovers we didn't want to be directly responsible..know what I mean? So we only eat it if we are visiting with family and stuff. My husband was pretty much vegan for a year because of some stomach problems but it didn't fix it so now we just try our best to eat healthy here at home. 6d
  •   violetsbuds Yes it was great to get out! 6d
  •   lu_and_ed @buttonsandpaintbrushes right?! Meat is expensive and sooooo not good for you so we don't buy it either. I hope his stomach problems are improving! 5d
  •   buttonsandpaintbrushes @lu_and_ed indeed! Thank you, they seem to fluctuate, but it's better than it was. 5d
  •   poldersowm Sicky here, but our day had some highlights nonetheless :) 5d
  •   lu_and_ed @poldersowm hope you get to feeling better ASAP!! 5d

lu_and_ed Did you know each and every Lu & Ed monster is made from textile discards? Monsters are made from materials like gently used clothing, sheets, blankets, fabrics, curtains, pajamas & table cloths that are either thrifted locally or donated to me - meaning the materials I use do not contribute to textile factory pollution, nor pollution from the transport of new fabrics from factories to warehouses to the stores which will sell them. And as a bonus in the eco department, not a single scrap goes into landfills - I dice up leftover bits and blend with the stuffing that goes into the monsters! Pretty rad, huh?!
Bam. Lu & Ed: Saving the world, one monster at a time!

lu_and_ed I sewed up twenty (20!!!) stuffed monsters last week. This was one of them.
Greeting Monday & this week with the same energy - two stuffed monsters and two Mon-stors completed already, and it is only 3pm.

lu_and_ed Is there a rule about matching your hair to your eyes? If there is - I just broke it! 1w

lu_and_ed Random fact: I have only one son, but often have one-three bonus kiddos a lot of the time. Today we took this brood (my neighbors son I was babysitting & two of my husbands younger siblings) to Science City. Now they are tucked in for a sleep over and giggling their heads off, watching The Lego Movie while I tackle some late night sewing. I love my busy, fun, sometimes chaotic life full of laughter, family & friends so very much! 1w

lu_and_ed Incoming hair color: Electric Lizard. 1w
  •   lu_and_ed @tcalcuppycakes I love the red in your profile pic! Pink and reds won't even stay in my hair for a week (last time I dyed it hot pink it lasted two days then was totally faded ) 1w
  •   nourishinglynatural I'll just live vicariously. I had highlights once...and now I'm lucky to get a haircut once a year ;) 1w
  •   lu_and_ed Hehe @nourishinglynatural - I go months between cuts, maybe at most two-three times a year. I get it short when I go in, grow it out all shaggy, repeat. 1w
  •   tcalcuppycakes I had red/ pink staying issues too, until I switched to using only conditioner daily or every other day, and shampoo once every two weeks. All shampoos I tried just stripped my color. 1w
  •   lu_and_ed @tcalcuppycakes @gnarlywhaleshop is super gentle on my hair. I only shampoo 1-2 times a week though, and blues/greens/purple last 3-6 weeks! Red and pink, no dice. 1w
  •   woodczech Ooooo fun!! We need an after photo!! 1w
  •   heyhoudini That one is awesome! 1w
  •   geekandthebelle Fun! My daughter uses ION hair dye. She's had teal, red, purple. Now she's either wanting pink or to tip it in red. 1w
