About

Well, I started 2mylu last year because I wanted a few essential elements for the shirts my kids wore day in and day out; a clean and modern style, a message that relayed to kids (and adults) its important to be yourself and do your own "thang", and eco-friendly comfort. I surely was not finding this in any stores near me.
So, a long time designer at heart, I decided it was time to design and produce.

I think the clothes we wear are sort of like bumper stickers on a car. I don't wear it unless, in some respect, it represents who I am, or in the case of my kids who I believe them to be.

I love providing a positive and thought provoking message with a modern, minimalist edge to the style.

All designs are created by me on my computer at home. Once a design is finished, I have it made into a hot peel transfer. These are not transfer sheets from the craft store, (or like they used to have at Spencer's) but high quality professional heat transfers known for their soft feel and durability.
In my own experience, I have found the heat transfers I use to hold up better than screen prints. They keep their bright and bold color BEAUTIFULLY wash after wash.
Once I receive the transfer of the design, I hand press each shirt at home using a professional grade heat machine. I enjoy the time I spend in my "hot closet" at home pressing each shirt, contemplating its placement and listening to my ipod. What a crazy place for a little solitude!

I live just off of Hilton Head Island, SC with my husband, kids 7, 6 and 2 and our dog, who used to be the baby until the kids came along! I grew up in Colorado and we travel there whenever possible. I am truly a rocky mountain girl at heart.
