New Dye & More Shirts Store is OPEN!

 Hello!!

I haven't officially opened a store yet. I say yet because I hope one day I'll be able to. I don't want to rush a good thing. I'm patient for the right time. Until then, if you would like a shirt, we can make payment arrangements. You just have to send me and email.

The colors are basically the same. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, black and gray. I usually don't use more than 3 colors at a time unless that's what you want. Any more than 3 colors is $2 per color. $15 for sizes small - XL.. $2 more for 2X and up. 

I use high quality heavy-weight Gildan shirts. They last a long time and the dye is professional dye. You'll wear the shirt out before the dye fades. 

 I can have the shirt done in 2 weeks. It's a long process. I take my time to produce a great quality shirt. This isn't backyard tie dye. I am an artist and a professional. I just don't mass-produce shirts. I would rather the customer pick the colors they like and I will do my "magic" to make the shirt look good.

 I use simple designs. That way the outcome is fairly predictable. I am always impressed with how good the dye looks. The colors are so vibrant. The shirts really do look store-bought.

 Have a great week. This is just a little update.

Happy New Year!!

 

Happy New Year!! I see on social media how happy some people are with the year being over. I don't share the same sentiment. I look back at a rough year that I made it through. I wouldn't have done it without God. 

I never felt alone. I never was full of fear or worry. I stayed hopeful and happy ..for the most part.

I have started some resolutions already. I have been reading my Bible more. I'm trying to strengthen my relationship with Jesus. I am letting Him lead me and talk with me and share with me His plan for my life. 

Yes, I talk with Jesus. You don't? Why not?? Anyone who comes to Him with a sincere heart can. I don't have any divine superpowers that any normal person doesn't have. I just have decided to follow Him on a daily basis. I continually surrender to Him. I repent frequently. I shut my mouth and open my heart to His soft and gentle words. 

Because I do all of this, I am less stressed. I am hopeful for the future. I am not angry all the time. I am not expecting people to do anything. I just love them for who and what they are.

I also go to a great church. I go to Cedar Creek in Ohio. If you are in Ohio, you might wanna give them a try. http://www.cedarcreek.tv is their website. 

Resolutions are about change. I can't change without help. I need God's help. It's like trying to stop drinking or doing drugs. You can't do it alone. Somewhere or somehow you need to get help. 

Why not give God a chance? What are you afraid of losing? Maybe that's the thing you need to let go of? Trust me, the grass is greener on the other side.

Hiatus


 Hello!!

I have to announce that I'm taking a hiatus from tie dying for awhile to pursue other endeavors.  If you know me, this isn't a surprise. I tend to move from project to project frequently. Also, the pandemic has made it difficult to buy supplies. 

If you are co-workers or family of mine, I will still take orders. I will still dye masks. I hope we don't need those much longer. 

Thank you all for understanding and reading my blog. I will continue to post here. Please keep coming back and reading.

Tie dye Christmas

Hello!!

It's Christmastime and I have decked the halls in tie dye. If you know me, this comes as no surprise. I literally tie dye almost everything white. I say almost because I can't dye anything polyester.. yet. I'm working on it. 

I will be changing the color chart. I also have to update my prices. I have decided to use Gildan t-shirts which are heavy-weight cotton. The wear is more comfortable and they last a lot longer than the Hanes shirts I got from Walmart.

Masks are the same price, $7. If you buy a shirt and a mask that match it's only $20! Otherwise, a basic size adult is $15. Plus sizes add $2. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. If you haven't read the true story of Christmas, I urge you to find a bible app or the paper version. Turn to the book of Matthew. Jesus was the best gift ever. He saved me and that's the best gift of all. He continues to bless me and my family. We have ups and downs but, He has never left our side. He will do the same for you!!

God bless you all!! Stay healthy and safe!!

It's not too early

 Hello!!

It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas!! I have been watching Hallmark Christmas movies for quite awhile now. As the song says, "We need a little Christmas". I think it's perfect timing. We need some happiness. It seems the world is at war over so many things. 

That's why I love tie dye. I see the colors and I'm happy and speaking of colors... I'm going to be starting my Christmas colors soon. I'll officially start them the day of Thanksgiving. I will no longer be using any of the fall colors. The Christmas colors will be greens, reds, pinks and blues. They are typical Christmas colors. I will be trying new Christmas designs too! I promise to take plenty of pictures!

Try to stay happy and healthy! God loves you and I do too!

Fail !!


Well, this was supposed to be a pink ribbon. It didn't turn out obviously. I'm glad it wasn't on a shirt. I'll try again. I'll learn how to do this. It wasn't easy to do let me tell ya. 

One thing about me. I don't give up easily. I want to learn how to do shapes in tie dye. I think they look great when done correctly. 

Anyway, have a great week!! The rest of the tie dye I did this weekend turned out perfectly.
