Hello Good People!
As always we are excited to share the music with you but this time I'm excited to tell you about the hard work going on for the past two months in my kitchen.
New handmade T-shirts and an entire line of Blues Therapy Essential Oil Products!
First they are either sewn or folded to form the design which is held secure with rubber bands. Then they are soaked in soda ash water and individually colored with fiber reactive dyes which I often blend to create different colors. Next they are bagged for 24 hours, then rinsed, washed and hung to dry.
After the shirts are dried they are screen printed by hand. The logo was created by band member and friend Chris Parker. I printed the logo onto a transparency which was then transferred onto a screen through a photo emulsion process conducted in our cellar. After the shirts are painted they dry for 24 hours then are set with heat by iron or dryer. Each shirt is made with love and has nearly an hour of time put into it.
I'm learning as I go and next week I'm taking lessons here at my home from one of the best tie dye artist I know. So the Made to Order shirts should be on an entirely different level. Let's hope.
I am certainly not a pro and I'm in the trial to trial school of tie dye and screen printing. I hope they get better as we go. This has all been a learning process and I've been having fun with it. The kids have been happy to help when they are available too. I look forward to creating new designs and prints in the future.
Now I'm really excited to tell you about the Blues Therapy line of essential oil products we've been making in the kitchen too.
God put it on my heart, or a little angel whispered in my ear. I've been trying to recall when the idea came to mind but either way I've been meditating on it for quite some time now and with the encouragement of friends it's finally happening.
Blues Therapy essential sprays for room and/or body. I personally like spraying most of these in my face. It's refreshing. I think the word my youngest, Sally uses is "satisfying", that's her satisfied look in the picture above. I'm working on different scents and we are naming them after Brick Fields songs. Such as "Arkansas Rain" which smells just like Arkansas rain, or "Soul Of A Woman" which is a blend that I personally enjoy wearing as a perfume and ofcourse "Blues Therapy" which is a refreshing scent that awakens the senses and cures the blues.
A lot of these have also been incorporated into roll-on's and bath salts. I've been treating my family for years using herbs, oils and natural remedies. I've had fun over the years mixing up treatments for friends as well. Now I'm having fun bottling some of these up for you too.
I've recently also started jarring up my homemade "Coconut Stuff" which we use for everything... yes everything from hair, skin and nails to furniture polish in my house. Along with the Coconut stuff I've recently ventured into body butters and scrubs. I hope to be able to sell these online soon. For now I have them available at shows.
Please check out the new Blues Therapy Essentials and see what you might find.
