THE SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE
Glad to have you visit our SITE. We decided that we wanted to
change our way of life, to enjoy a sustainable way of living,
to take charge of our future. The sustainable lifestyle allows us
to control our lives as little or as much as we choose. Community
based trade and cooperation is what we feel is needed and hope more
people decide it's what they want.
We are currently switching to water based pigment inks in our
t-shirts and setting up our shop to be as green as we can currently
make it. This is an ongoing transition to the way of life we want.
We do shirts and stained glass but will start candles and soaps soon.
The shop will use solar, wind, methane and bio-diesel. We hope that
it will have a zero carbon foot print when we finish.
Farming will be something we will start this spring, as is the
case with our crafts we will not start 100% green but will progress
in that direction as fast as we can. This will be a total life style
change. This way of life is not for everyone but if they only change
a few things in their daily life, we can all make a difference.
I will be starting you tube videos and tutorials this year to
track and document this transition. If anyone is interested
in what it took for us to move in this direction, please follow along
it's a way of life that we as americans have moved away from and when
you forget where your from sometimes you don't know where your headed.
My wife has been doing stained-glass for about 6 years
She does art pieces as well as window and cabinet designs. We
attend many of the craft festivals and trade shows. We hope you see
something you like..more..
We have done candles for years so I suggested we offer
them to everyone. We will start with a few types but bring out more designs
as we can afford to as soon as we can. Hope you like all we have..more..
My mother passed recently and we have been given her soap making materials.
I hope to continue her craft of soap making. We will be adding many kinds as
we learn this fascinating craft from our past..more..
This year we will be starting our
first true organic garden. We hope
by the season end we will have our
first green house complete. This will
allow us to grow veggies all year long,
a true success for us..more..
I bought a single color press four years ago and love
doing shirts for the festivals. I now have a four color press
and enjoy it even more. I have moved to water based
and organic inks..more..
The second evolution of our home page.
First was html and this is the first site
with html and css. I will be doing some
more outrageous designs as I learn..more..
