CreativeDaily Challenge for August

Hooray! The prompts for Lu & Ed's #CreativeDaily for the month of August have been released! This month has several grammatical photo challenges, which should be perfect for back to school. Which are you looking forward to most?

Here is how it works:

Each day, you upload a photo to social media that relates to the prompt as you interpret it,  and share a blurb about what the photo represents. Remember to use the hashtag #creativedaily so that other participants can find your photos, and you can make new friends in the community!

The goal of #creativedaily is to inspire people to document their life and indie biz journey through daily photos & snippets of text, encouraging them to fill each day will a little bit of creativity. If you miss a day or few, it's not big deal - this photo challenge is just for fun!

Featured Shop of the Week- Hang Ups in KC

I'm pleased to introduce the featured shop for this week, Hang Ups in KC, a fun jewelry shop run by two friends. Hang Ups in KC are also members of the community Handmade in KC.

Hang Ups in KC is Kristi & Carolyn and everything we create is handmade by us! Our adventure started when we took a soldering class a few years ago. Since then our creativity and stock levels have exploded. Hang-Ups was born from our love of antiques, repurposed materials, clay, beads, wire and solder, and our strong entrepreneurial spirit….not to mention our husbands urging to get rid of some of our stock.

Carolyn is a former Human Resources Professional and Kristi manages her own Graphic Design Firm, KAP Design. We currently live in the Kansas City Missouri area with our wonderful and understanding husbands and children. We keep each other humble and have a lot of laughs (frequently at each other’s expense).

Hidden Beauty

We’ve all seen it. After a large storm large limbs from fallen trees are cut and left on the curb. Ever wonder about what happens to all that wood?

If you are lucky, your city has a service that turns it into mulch or some guy comes by and takes the wood to burn in his fireplace. Sadly, some of it ends up in a land fill. Most people probably don’t even give it a second thought; they don’t realize the potential beauty hidden in those limbs.

Featured Shop of the Week- Rebel Skein

The feature for this week is an accessories shop that features fun and quirky pieces. I'm happy to introduce Rebel Skein and owner/creator, Kat.
I've been crocheting since I was 5 years old. I have two boys and could never find cute accessories for them, so when my second son was 4 months old I decided to put my hobby to use by creating accessories for kids (and making sure I had plenty of boy oriented accessories as well).
