Handmade Marathon - Day #13 (Lu & Ed)

Editor's Note:

I just love coming across really unique handmade products, and I certainly think that Cody has got a fantastic thing going here.  In a child's world of battery-operated, plastic toys, I love coming across children's gift ideas that are handmade and special.  Lu & Ed is also environmentally friendly - what more could you ask for?








About Lu & Ed

Hi hello! I make unique, one of a kind storage solutions for kids in the form of Mon-stors! Mon-stors can be hung from a door, in a car, in a closet - anywhere extra storage is needed! - and then kids can "feed" their monster toys, laundry - anything your monster has an 'appetite' for and you need extra storage for! Also great in the kitchen to hold plastic bags, or in the car to hold diapers and wipes + a change of clothes for babies. 

I have been making Mon-stors for three years and strive to make Lu & Ed as green a business as possible - I buy most of my monster materials (90%) at thrift stores, I ship in recycled boxes, and I use fabric scraps to stuff monsters or dog beds I donate to animal shelters.
