Feeling a little stuck with your spring style? inStyle

We have some answers for you. Sometimes going into spring, we have trouble getting back into the groove of bright colors and patterns. It’s easy to make a habit of blacks, grays and monochrome color schemes (at least for us) and adding a bit of floral and yellows, oranges, pinks or greens, doesn’t come easy.

Spring Style o t in

By inMagazine staff

Pick your plains

No, not your favorite grassland, but your favorite staple pieces!

To start, go through your closet. Pick out the plain staple pieces that can be used on multiple occasions. Items such as a white shirt, a top with stripes or neutral colors. These wardrobe staples can come in different shapes and sizes. Anything from plain T-Shirts to tank tops to sleeveless dresses in neutral colors can count. If you think that you’re missing anything from your collection of plains, add items you think you’re missing onto the shopping list.

Don’t forget about your bottom half. You’ll still be in need of some solid pairs of jeans, slacks, long skirts or anything else that would tie everything together. 8 | inMagazine

Spring 2017


Add color to favorites!

If you have a certain style of staple piece that you’re comfortable in, maybe try to incorporate that same item in with a bright color. For instance, if you love your striped T-Shirt with a high neckline, try to find something with a similar fit in a bright color. You could add color to the bottom of your outfit as well. Colored pants, in coral, light blue or more, can also add to an outfit in you feel like sticking with neutral top.

Here are some pantone colors that are in for spring 2017 to help brighten up your look.

Find patterns to incorporate!

Once you’ve nailed down your plain staple pieces, you can find some color with patterns, florals, funky cardigans and more. Spring in northern Minnesota isn’t always the warm spring we imagine (although these days 80s in April wouldn’t be surprising) so think layers! Light button-up sweaters and spring jackets made from denim, or olive green in color, could easily go over the top of your plains. Add in some floral, a long sweater to go over the top, a floppy hat or anything to liven up the outfit. Patterned pants or embroidered jeans can pop an outfit also.

·

Other items to make an outfit pop:

Statement jewelry pieces Brimmed hats Scarves

(with bright colors or patterns)

Bright, colorful shoes Purses/bags

A pagan art turned Christian tradition Story by Joe

Bowen Photos by Maggi Stivers

For many Bemidji residents, spring presents a once-a-year occasion to dye colorful eggs as they celebrate Easter, but for ethnic artist Mary Morton, dyeing and decorating Easter eggs is a year-round passion and a modest side income. Among other creative pursuits such as Norwegian rosemaling, Morton creates Ukrainian-style Easter eggs and teaches others how to turn

ordinary grocery store eggs into the colorful, geometrically patterned masterpieces she’s been making for decades. “I find it intriguing that these things were done hundreds of years ago — what possessed all of the different countries to have this need for beauty and art?” Morton said. “They all kind of developed something unique and yet kind of similar.” Spring 2017

inMagazine | 11


Each egg gets emptied with a special straw called an “egg blower.” Morton uses a dremel tool to poke a small opening in one end of the egg, then inserts the straw and gently blows into it, expelling the whites and yolk. This step isn’t absolutely necessary, but Morton has just enough anecdotes about eggs with thin or imperfect shells exploding their rotten contents across a living room to make it advisable. After years and years, un-”blown” eggs’ insides shrivel and harden and give the impression that a small marble or lead weight has found a home there. Once the eggs are emptied, Morton uses a “kistka” to draw painstaking beeswax lines across their surfaces. In the same way that a painter might use tape to mask parts of a wall, the wax protects the surface underneath from each dye wash, and each new color requires new wax lines. This step is traditionally done with a piece of wood with copper wrapped at one end, heated by a candle. More modern egg-dyers use an electric tool that operates under the same principle. She uses reference points from earlier lines to anchor new ones — a series of marks drawn from the midway points of others, coalescing into a star. “It’s geometry,” Morton said.

She uses an assortment of scratch-made dyes stored in mason jars to color the eggs. Morton said each egg takes about 45 minutes to complete. The process is called “Pysanky,” and an egg dyed in that style is called a “pysanka,” which is Ukrainian for “to write.” Morton said her interest in the art form was sparked by a class she took in the late ‘70s. The process is descended from pagan spring celebrations, she explained — life springing from a seemingly lifeless egg paralleled color and vitality returning to the landscape. “It was a spring festival celebrating life renewed,” Morton said. “When Christianity came in, a lot of the symbols converted over to Christianity. That’s why we call them Easter Eggs.” Eastern European women would set aside entire days to dye eggs, Morton said, and made sure they had enough to mark weddings, funerals and other life events. Families would put eggs above their doors for good luck and to ward off disease, and teenage girls would give the colorful creations to boys they liked, she said. Despite all her knowledge of the country’s cultural traditions, Morton herself isn’t Ukrainian. “I just love the art,” she said.

How to get started Wash and rinse produce and herbs to remove chemicals, pesticides and other residues. Try to choose organic if you can.

Stay Hydrated

Use cold or room temperature filtered water. Hot water makes produce fall apart faster and can compromise the nutrients from the fruit and herbs. Softer fruits should be sliced thick, halved or quartered. Harder fruits should be sliced very thin because they take longer to release flavors. Crush any fibrous ingredients and tear or crush leafy herbs to help release their oils. Loose herbs can be placed in a tea infuser or cheesecloth.

Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid each day

Soak time

Infuse water at room temperature for two hours, then put it in the fridge to prevent bacteria from growing. The softer the fruit, the quicker the water will flavor. Harder fruits such as apples will need to soak overnight in the fridge. If you don’t drink the water within 24 hours, be sure to strain out the solids and refrigerate for up to three days.

Spring 2017


by Grace Pastoor staff writer Photography courtesy of Rian Grotberg Until 2009 local fans of flat track roller derby — a women’s contact sport involving roller skating, alter egos and lots (and lots and lots) of hitting — had to travel to Duluth or the Twin Cities to experience a game (also known as a bout). But after Shannon Murray happened to see a roller derby bout in Chicago, she knew she had to join the sport. “I just knew I needed to skate,” Murray said. “There wasn’t a team in Bemidji and I couldn’t move.” Murray teamed up with then-BSU student Sara Bronczyk-Schmitz to create the Babe City Rollers. I joined the team in fall of 2016, and will be one of the 14 skaters to play in bouts in the 2017-18 season. I sat down with three other players: Aubrey Johnson (Bohemian Bombshell), Kat Jenkins (Mad Katter) and Gina Bernard (wicked vixen) to talk derby names, broken bones and what derby means to them.

in: How did you first get involved with roller derby? Bombshell: I started roller derby in March of 2012, so I'm going on my fifth year. I discovered roller derby because of a coworker who introduced me. I thought it sounded really cool cause it involved roller skating and I absolutely loved roller skating growing up. I watched, and instantly it was my thing. It was me, that's all I can say; it was me. Mad Katter: I started skating last April. I found out about it through one of my boyfriend's friends. We went with him and I immediately was like, ‘Oh, I have to do this,’ and I pretty much obsessed with it for like a week after that and finally went to practice and loved it. I fell a lot, but I’m still loving it. wicked vixen: I've been skating since October 2010. I got into it because a coworker at the high school brought free tickets to a bout and left them on the table during lunch. I'm a divorced parent of two daughters, and they were going to be with me that weekend and I was looking for something to do with them, and so I was thinking roller derby: strong, empowered women, what a great message to send my daughters. We went and I hadn't been watching five minutes and I was like, ‘Damn, I'm doing this.’ in: What about derby first appealed to you? Bombshell: Seeing so many strong women together, working together, was my main Spring 2017

thing, because I've never really had a big group of women friends. Being a team — I've never been part of a team — is what really drew me in, and it just created a family. And you know that you will have them forever.

the name because I’m Bohemian and he thinks I’m a bombshell.

Mad Katter: I was watching and I was like, ‘Wow, these are some awesome women out there beating the crap out of each other and loving it,’ and it looks like so much fun, and everybody’s got creative names. Who doesn’t want a superhero name? It just looked like so much fun, I just knew I had to do it.

wicked vixen: I came up with like a list of six or seven names. wicked vixen I liked, because vixen is a female fox and they're kind of fiery and fierce, and wicked just seemed like a good roller derby name.

wicked vixen: I was less than two years post-divorce. I think that to anybody who's ever experienced divorce there's a divvying up of friends, and your life kind of becomes smaller because of that. And then I was also transitioning from male to female, and so that kind of had reduced my world even more; I lost a lot of family and friends through that. I was physically and mentally healthy enough to start wanting to fill my life back up, and like these other two women have said, as physical as it is it also exudes family and strength and support, and so I think it was really vital in my overall health as a trans woman to be part of something. I lost a lot of family when I transitioned. In a lot of ways my derby family is literally my family. in: Everyone who plays derby gets to choose a “derby name” to use on the track. How did you choose yours? Bombshell: My husband came up with

Spring 2017

Mad Katter: I wanted to play off my name Kat, so I finally stuck with Mad Katter. I'm a big “Alice in Wonderland” fan.

in: Derby is expensive, time-consuming and hard on the body. What makes you stick with it? Bombshell: Knowing that I am capable of being able to do this sport amazes me. All the skills it takes to actually play derby, the endurance that it takes, just the core strength and everything, knowing that I was able to bring my body to a place to be able to do that just amazes me.


Mad Katter: It was a little intimidating at first, but once I got on skates, even though I was falling over and over and over and over, it was just so awesome and everybody was awesome and encouraging, so I decided to stick with it. wicked vixen: I enjoy the physicality a lot. I've broken three ankles, I've had four concussions, I've broken a wrist,

a thumb, a couple of toes, I've had cartilage separated from my ribs, the list just goes on and on, so I've asked myself that question. Why do I keep coming back? But the physicality, I love it, I really love it. I think the other thing that keep me coming back is I've been in it since 2010 and derby itself is constantly changing and challenging us.

Sort, Prioritize, Purge & Practice By Tammy Schotzko, Certified Professional Organizer

is the spring cleaning key Looking forward to open windows, clean linens, organized closets and a good spring clean? Or do you cringe at the thought, stashing winter leftovers in less obvious nooks and crannies? The beckoning of warmer (and longer) spring days can renew our energy and enthusiasm for refreshing our spaces‌.or‌ not! The tasks of spring cleaning can be as welcome as the dust bunnies hibernating all winter under the couch. Enter the SP3 spring cleaning formula. Only 4 all-natural ingredients, a little of your own elbow grease, and - voila! Spring cleaning is in the bag. What is this magic formula? Grab a helper (preferably someone willing and able vs. forced!) and follow these steps to spring cleaning success:

20 | inMagazine

Spring 2017


sort

Choose a starting point, grab some containers (boxes or bags), then empty shelves, drawers, and random clutter. Move these items into groups (also known as piles!) of similar items (can be grouped by type/function/frequency of use/season etc.).

prioritize Do I use it?

Take a hard look at your piles and ask yourself:

Do I need it?

Do I love it?

Be ruthless – Listen to your gut and go with the first response it gives you. We all know if we think about something long enough we can rationalize holding on to it. A side note about loving an item: Love is a verb – if we love something enough to let it reside in our space, we need to be willing to take care of it. High school yearbooks stored in a garage for decades amid mildew, for example, are not items we love. They have sentimental value, but not enough to reside in our living space – do you really want to hold on to them?

purge

Say goodbye to all the items we don’t use/need/love!

Time to let them go to new homes where they will be needed/used/loved. Purging doesn’t mean garbage – there are many options including donating, recycling, and repurposing. Need some ideas for where items can go? Check out my blog at http://www.welovemesses.com/tammys-tips. Once your purge is complete add the spring clean sparkle by dusting and washing the spaces before returning the items that you use, need, and love to their homes.

practice

For SP3 to work we have to set aside a few minutes each day to practice putting items in their homes.

Tammy Schotzko Tammy Schotzko was born with an organized mind and a linear way of thinking! Until finding her niche in the organizing business she always felt the need to apologize for being overly organized. Now she has realized she is the “yin” to clutter’s “yang”. Called “The House Whisperer” by one client, Tammy operates with a “less is more” theory, focusing on keeping the things you truly have time for and love, while letting go of those that are weighing you down.

If piles are growing, it means items aren’t getting put away! It’s like loading and unloading a dishwasher – the dishwasher only works if we move the dishes in and out on a regular basis.

Voila – You, my friend, have completed the SP3 spring clean formula! Congratulations!

Creating A Grace Lake Dream Home by

Alicia Erickson & Berit Roseberg of Sterling Carpet One Floor & Home Photography by Jillian Gandsey

When newlyweds Matt and Lori Proulx walked into Sterling Carpet One Floor & Home, they had no idea how incredible the transformation would be to their 1930s home on Grace Lake. Sterling Carpet One’s in-house designers Berit Rosenberg and Alicia Erickson met with Matt and Lori and connected immediately. Coming from the East Coast, Lori envisioned a coastal style kitchen that would not only renew their space, but evoke the loving spirit of her mom and give their blended family a feeling of “home.” 22 | inMagazine

“It was easy to get on board with Lori’s vision and fun to put things together for them, and we knew it would move her to joyful tears,” Berit said With Berit’s rendering, Matt and Lori could visualize the possibilities their space had to offer. They could make their closed kitchen with limited storage into an open floor plan concept, which provided a much larger kitchen. Lori wanted the biggest island she could get, and with their new layout, she could have exactly what she imagined. Soon after getting a game plan, Zetah Construction was called in to help with the project. “The communication between Sterling and Zetah was remarkable. We could not have done it if they hadn’t had been so good at working together on scheduling everything as to what came next. It really was a collaborative effort,” Lori said.

SPRING BLOOMS

QUINCE Quince or any of several East Asian shrubs of the genus Chaenomeles have flowers. Gardeners in the West often refer to these species as "flowering quince,� since Chaenomeles are grown ornamentally for their flowers.

DAFFODIL Daffodils are members of the Amaryllidaceae family, and are also named for Narcissus, a youth in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own reflection and was transformed by the gods into a flower. Narcissuses are native to Europe, North America and western Asia. Daffodil is generally used to refer to the single, trumpet-shaped flowers.

HELLEBORE Commonly known as hellebores, the Eurasian genus Helleborus consists of approximately 20 species of herbaceous or evergreen perennial flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae. They have flowers with five petal-like sepals surrounding a ring of small, cuplike nectaries which are actually "petals" modified to hold nectar. The sepals do not fall as petals would, but remain on the plant, sometimes for many months. 26 | inMagazine

Spring 2017


RANUNCULUS Ranunculus is a genus of about 600 species of plants in the Ranunculaceae. Members of the genus include the buttercups, spearworts, and water crowfoots. They have petals that are often highly lustrous, especially in yellow species. They usually flower in the spring, but flowers may be found throughout the summer, especially where the plants are growing as opportunistic colonizers, as in the case of garden weeds.

HYACINTH

Raechel Schwarze

Hyacinthus is a small genus of bulbous, fragrant flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae. Hyacinth grows from bulbs, each producing around four to six linear leaves and one to three spikes or racemes of flowers. In the wild species, the flowers are widely spaced grows to a height of six to eight inches.

Daffodils, ranunculus, hyacinth and more. Spring and fresh, colorful blooms are almost here and we can cross our fingers that we aren’t going to get a late-April snowstorm. KD Floral partnered with us at inMagazine and picked some of their favorite and classic spring blooms that will be popular this season. Spring 2017
