Brand of the Free T-shirt Review, Giveaway and coupon code!!

Giveaway is Closed

One of the great things about this journey of searching for products Made in the USA is the experience of finding great little companies that make cool products and getting to share them with you.

One such company is Brand of the Free, maker of organic graphic tees and totes. I stumbled upon them a few months ago and was immediately draw to their designs. I was sold when I found out that their products were eco-friendly and made in the USA.

All Brand of the free t-shirts are made from certified organic cotton (grown in Texas!!). The dyes used are non-toxic water based inks. What does this mean for the shirt? It gives the graphic a soft, pliable nature which you do not find on most graphic tees. The graphic ink will not crack overtime. The designs are thought provoking and unique. Some are subtle enough to get conversations going about our nation and government, buying local, and being environmentally aware. Brand of the Free has so many great designs, that I really could not decide which I liked best. Some of my favorites are: Birds on a Wire, Support Local Farmers and 100% Organic.

I had the opportunity to review the Lasting Liberty tee. When I received it, the first thing I noticed was the color. The colors were very earthy and natural. The shirt is super soft and very comfortable. Although I read about how the dyes would make the graphic soft, I was a bit skeptical. The graphic on the Lasting Liberty tee is so large that I thought that the shirt graphic would feel stiff. But, it does not. In fact, I really could not feel a difference between the part of the t-shirt that contains the graphic and the rest of the tee. The women's tees are stylish, with an athletic, fitted cut; not boxy like most tees. The t shirt is tagless, so there is no tag scratching you or flipping outside of the shirt.

Just a few notes about the shirts: If you are buying a women's shirt, I would recommend buying a shirt two sizes larger than what you usually wear. The Brand of the Free website recommends ordering one size larger, but, if you like your shirts loose fitting, you may want to get one that is two sizes larger. I normally wear a size medium and I got a large in this tee. It fits snugly, which is fine, but I might even order an xtra-large the next time. Also, FOLLOW the WASHING INSTRUCTIONS. I hand washed my tee and noticed that the tee color did run. The tee itself did not fade, but, I think, because of the nature of the dye, that it probably normally runs.

Finally, Brand of the free works hard to be environmentally conscious. Not only do they produce eco-friendly products, but they work to reduce, reuse, recycle in every aspect of their company. The orders are even sent using 100% recycled envelopes! The Brand of the Free website also has a great article on why to buy American made tees. Please check it out.

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …

On Waiting

This past weekend we went to a book party for a priest friend who had his second book Living the Beatitudes:A Journey to Life in Christ published last fall.  The party was hosted by another Catholic author.  And, after the cake was cut and people were sitting quietly, the host of the party began to speak.  He began to talk about how great this book is and how insightful so much of it is.  Then he began to share quotes from it.  And I felt as if he chose two of them for me:

"Waiting is the training ground of trust."

"Beauty is the crescendo of waiting"
Now, although we have this book and my husband has read it, I have not (sorry, Fr. B).  But that night, I sat with the book while my hubby and I sat down to attempt to watch a movie and I scoured the book for the above quotes.  Too shy to ask the host for the pages for these quotes, I skimmed page by page until I found them.  And after I found the first quote, I was confronted with line after line about waiting.  I read…
