Thank you Kelly. And as you said, I love it when customers ask for new products, but sometimes I can't always fill those requests.
Enter Team Lu & Ed.
I keep a list of customer suggestions. One day I was looking at that list and decided I need to do something about it - so I started reaching out to other artists who I admire for their talent and positive personalities to collaborate with to fulfill those suggestions!
Collaborating is such a wonderful experience. I love working with other artists to make unique, limited edition products and I hope that you enjoy seeing what we scheme up together! Together, me and the artists I am teaming up with are changing the world - proceeds from each Team Lu & Ed product are donated to charity!
Team Lu & Ed proudly supports Drumm Farm Center for Children, with as much as 100% from Team Lu & Ed products going directly to the group home environment for children in the Missouri foster care system in Kansas City, where I call home. ♥ The other percentage of funds from items goes directly back to the artist I collaborated with. I don't keep a penny of the money from Team Lu & Ed, I invest it all back into the local community and helping make the lives of children in the foster care system more happy and wonderful!
Here is a run down on currently active collaborations & products you can find in my shop!
Cari from TheMollieShop.com makes incredible fur haired fabric dolls & perfectly pleasant handmade fabric fabric hair bows! I was thrilled when she designed two types of bows - a ribbon/bottlecap bow and a fabric bow - to represent Team Lu & Ed! Cari graciously donates 100% of the proceeds from these bows to charity through Team Lu & Ed!
This winter Cari & I launched ten fabric, fur hair Mollie Dollies made in Team Lu & Ed colors - with 50% going to Team Lu & Ed! The dolls flew off the shelves and there are just a few left!
Danielle of Squshies makes colorful mini felt characters that can be used as ornaments or soft wall art for kids, and I was stoked when she agreed to work with me to create ten limited edition mini wall art Mon-stors!

Scoop one up - $7 from the purchase price goes to charity through Team Lu & Ed!
