THE ORGANIC LIFESTYLE
WELCOME to our SITE. We have traveled far in the journey we started
several years ago to find the organic lifestyle. Me and the wife
have reached the 5 year mark. It only took 6 years to get here,,,,
so we feel very good about the progress. Much trial and error to
make many things work the way we wanted. Hope you are as happy with
the progress in your life.
We switched to water based pigment inks in our t-shirts and set up
our shop to be as green as we could make it. We had to add a clamshell
press to the shop because we found that many people wanted a few shirts
at a low price which doesn’t work with screen printed shirts, you really
need to reach a certain number of shirts to get a reduced price.
We also bought a vinyl cutter to finish the design. Not as green as we
wanted but it allows us to do short runs and still keep the price down for
Started to experiment with several green garden techniques two years ago
this spring, as is the case with our crafts a lot of trial and error but
we have found several options that work for us. We use raised plant beds,
Floating Raft System and Dutch Bucket System. Others were tried but didn't
work well for us, Potato Barrels, Grow barrels, and a few others just didn't
produce the results we wanted the first year or second after some tweaks to
them. So we will be raising the greenhouse this year to extend the season,
and go with what seems to work for us.
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..
Want to save an animal and do the right thing
then support a rescue group and do right by
these animals. They give unconditional love
and are there for you. ..more..
