As I think about coming back to this space, which was actually my first space (did you know? It was! I blogged before I Facebooked, Twittered or Instagrammed!) I've been thinking about how I want it to change. I mean, my need for it to change was the reason I grew away from it in the first place. I was using it to upload pictures of my monsters each week - and maybe I will do that again, to keep track of how much is coming out of my studio - but I think I want to produce some fresh content that is more in line with my life & business & ethos right now.
I am thinking of focusing more on the process of making monsters, and this space is perfect for it - showing monsters, from their start as blankets and sheets and pajamas and sweaters, being freed from that big blank slate and slowly becoming, bit by little bit, the cute little monsters at the end. Share more of the impact that Lu & Ed is really making on the environment & keeping textile discards out of landfills.
Plus, there's other things that tie in with my eco & indie lifestyle - organic gardening, enjoying the slow-purchase, reducing, reusing or recycling so that our home stays clutter free & full of things that we love - that I want to share with you all but don't have the space to on social media, so I think I will be integrating some of that content here in this happy little blog space! This was our first year as organic suburban gardeners, and we loved it - and learned a lot! So I have tons to share with you guys next spring! It's also been just over a year since we bought our home, and we are finally feeling settled so I would love to start doing a sort of "home tour" series showing off how we use thrift store furniture & handmade decor to make our home lovely & functional.
So expect to see some new content here, soonish. And thank you, as always, for supporting my dream, as it grows & changes & becomes even more wonderful, day by day!
