HOW TO CARVE ATTENTION-GETTING

Halloween Pumpkins THIS YEAR, TRY SCULPTING PUMPKINS! ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

T

he art of carving pumpkins gets more creative every year. Chesterfield residents are fortunate to have a local carv-

ing expert available for assistance at Art Unleashed Inc. This expert shares tips on how to whittle pumpkins that "will get your neighbors' attention." For the third year, artist Heather Woodson will provide an annual pumpkin-carving class for adults at the nonprofit art studio located at 13379 Olive Blvd.  This fall's class will be held the evening of October 25 for those ages 18 years and older. All tools and materials are provided on-site during the class. Typically, Heather teaches sculpting and wheel throwing with clay at the studio. She says she started carving pumpkins for fun, which led to carving for events and commissions. "People began to ask how I did that, so I decided to try offering classes," she says. Heather says sculpting is the most popular carving practice people want to discover how to do in pumpkins. "They often want to learn how to carve into the pumpkins’ flesh creating a three-dimensional character," she says. She recommends practicing carving on clay ahead of pumpkin-carving, or with fruits and vegetables, such as melons, apples and potatoes, all of which have a somewhat similar texture to pumpkins. She says while those other items aren't identical to pumpkins, they are still close enough to get a feel for it. Because pumpkin textures change greatly based on varieties and even yearly weather patterns, Heather says they can be more difficult to carve from one year to the next. "Try different types and practice on the cheap ones," she recommends. "Also, you can extend the life of your pumpkin creations by spraying them with a bleach and water mix to reduce the bacteria growth. Then, apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to all the cut surfaces to seal them." The most common mistake people make with pumpkin carving is not checking the depth of the flesh before carving, the artist says. "Cutting a small hole in the back or bottom will let you know how much room you have to carve." Heather predicts pumpkin-carving trends this year will be recognizable people, cartoons and other pop culture imagery. She suggests combining techniques, such as traditional carving, and removing just some of the pumpkin skin to create designs and images.

16

Chesterfield Lifestyle | October 2017


For neat, clean pumpkin carving: 1. Cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin with a large kitchen knife, preferably one that is serrated. Be sure to cut at about a 45-degree angle inward so the top will sit nicely once you’re done carving. If you’re carving with kids, adults should handle this step. 2. Use a large spoon or pumpkin scraper to remove all the guts and seeds from the pumpkin. Make sure the side you are going to carve your design into is clean. If you’re planning on saving the seeds for roasting, this is a good time to separate them from the rest of the insides. 3. Sketch out your design or trace a stencil on the pumpkin before carving. If you’re drawing on the pumpkin, a permanent marker is the best option, as it won’t smear. Tracing stencils can be challenging, especially for more advanced designs. Many pumpkin-carving kits provide a “pounce wheel” to help with this. You also can try a connect-the-dots technique. 4. The blades found in pumpkin-carving kits often allow for more control and safety compared to kitchen knives. 5. Be careful not to cut too far when carving out different parts of the design. The cleaner each cut, the easier it will be to take out the

carved parts without tearing nearby rind. 6. Carefully remove the unwanted pieces and clean up any rough edges.

6 Tips to Selling Your Home in the Fall ARTICLE BY KATHY HELBIG BROKER, OWNER

No matter the temperature outside,

the fall real estate market is almost always hot. Statistically, autumn is the second-best time of the year to sell a home. Families are returning from summer vacations, kids are going back to school, executives are relocating, and the weather is prime. The holidays aren’t yet upon us, leaving the perfect amount of time before the hustle and bustle starts to sell a home. Take advantage of the season (and all of the sellers who have taken their houses off the market this month) with these tips:

• Wait till the last minute to close your pool – Just because you aren’t swimming doesn’t mean it’s time to winterize. You’re likely asking more for your house because of the pool, so show it off (or at least get the photographer to take pictures of it open while they are capturing the other exteriors). • Plan for photos now – It’s October and the leaves are looking fantastic. We always send our professional photographers over early to shoot the exteriors before the leaves fall. Don’t miss the prime photo op even if you’re not quite ready to go on the market.

• Have your HVAC serviced – The technician can check the air conditioning system before it’s too cold and you’ll have a record that it is in working condition prior to the winter.

• Make your windows sparkle – Having your windows professionally cleaned makes the most of limited lighting. Autumn means less bright to downright gloomy days, so take advantage of the light we have by keeping your windows clean.

• Pretty up your patio – Stage your outdoor furniture and add an outdoor rug to make it pop!

• Don’t put off exterior fixes – Take advantage while the weather is still warm. Power wash and get your deck stained and sealed.

Don’t buy the myth that “you have to wait till spring to sell your house.” If you’re ready to start the process of getting your house on the market give us a call. Our expert staff can help you with not only these strategies but support you through the entire home selling Experience.

Co-owner Chris Greer says when it comes to brewing, he is a purist at heart, so he keeps the beers balanced and style-focused. "I show a lot of love to our yeast strains, and reward them by occasionally tossing them into our

batches," he adds. Chris recently brewed a brown ale, as well as a new "Bocktober." He said the Bock is a limited-run beer and will be replaced by Vienna lager once it is gone. For fall, he also offers a new IPA and a stout. Everything about an interesting, recently launched High Ridge brewing company is designed by hand, especially the craft beers and root beer. Owner Jerry Roth said it's quality first at Bastard Brothers Brewing Co., making "beer how it used to be, should be and will be," with no shortcuts. "We leave the yeast in the beer, and before it's bottled, we add sugar, which brings the yeast to life," he says. "It’s an old-school, back-to-basics brewing style that creates a clear beer with a smooth finish," Jerry officially began commercial operations in October 2015.

Another good idea is to pack and mark two coolers if traveling, one for drinks and one for food. Coolers can be painted and decorated; turn the top into a football field and finish it off with the team's name on the sides. Want something temporary? Use stick-on stencils to spell out the team's mascot on a cooler and add colored yarn or ribbons to the handles. Make-ahead menus can include easy-to-hold items, such as mini Cajun burgers, turkey cheddar kabobs, southwestern shrimp, chicken enchiladas and cheese spreads. West St. Louis County resident Lisa Canepa Size says a new must-have tailgating food for their family is a pretzel party platter from St. Louis Pretzel Boys with their white jalapeĂąo cheese dip. This shop is located at 11750 Manchester Road, and its team serves up famous Philly soft pretzels. Desserts can be as easy as football or team-themed cookies. Sources for customized, special order cookies include Sweetology, CT Cookie Treats, Colleen's Cookies, Cookies By Design or The Cup. Cookies and cupcakes for tailgating also usually can be found at Dierbergs or Schnucks' bakery departments.

Overall tailgating tips include: 1. Always take extra paper towels, which can double as napkins, clean up spills, or be used for snack plates in a pinch. Paper towel rolls can be hung from tent struts using bungee cords from both ends. 2. Hand sanitizer is a must. 3. Freeze water bottles to use in place of ice in coolers so there's also cold water to drink after they melt. 4. Save six-pack holders to fill with condiments and favorite hot sauces. 5. Use "anti-insect" cupcake liners in chosen team colors with straws over top of specialty drinks. 6. Wet wipes, bottle openers, can openers, plastic zip-close bags and trash bags come in handy! 7. Pack a mini first-aid kit. 8. Take fun accessories for friends, such as football temporary tattoos, beaded necklaces or bandanas. 9. Customize a mobile chalkboard to welcome guests, with different messages for every tailgate party. 10. Relax and have fun, even if something doesn't go perfectly. Tailgate celebrations often turn into improvisation opportunities! October 2017 | Chesterfield Lifestyle

Things toKnow About Storage Units STORAGE MASTERS HELP YOU MASTER POSSESSIONS ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

T

o make space in homes for upcoming holidays, October is an ideal time to box up and store items.  Brian Wofford, operations director of Storage Masters at

16824 Chesterfield Airport Road, says now is a perfect time to "take back" attic space, extra rooms and garage. Following are 10 considerations when selecting the full-service storage company that best matches your needs: 1. Storage Masters provides a free move-in truck and disc lock. Not all storage companies offer those cost savings. 2. Is the storage location you're considering a protected, fenced-in facility? Storage Masters is gated, surrounded by  fortress-style construction and has an integrated security system. It also is monitored by 24-hour surveillance cameras, and grants access with keypad entry. 3. Having climate-controlled units can be vital, depending on what is being stored. Paper products, antiques and certain types of collections all need, and fare better, in climate-controlled storage. Storage Masters has ample climate-controlled units. 4. How easy is access to your storage? Storage Masters offers drive-up access to all of the business units, so customers only have to walk a few steps to get inside. 5. How's the lighting at any storage facility? Many Storage Masters units have skylights, and the facility is extremely well-lit in hallways and at night. 6. Want to have deliveries made to and accepted by a storage facility? Storage Masters will accept customer packages, or customers can set up arrangements with delivery companies to drive packages to Storage Masters and then pick up the key to the associated unit and place deliveries into that unit on behalf of that customer. 7. How does 15 percent more storage sound? Storage Masters units intentionally were built with extra-high ceilings for additional storage space. 8. What happens to belongings at any storage facility in the event of unforeseen damages? Storage protection plans are available at Storage Masters. 9. Which storage facilities provide boxes and allow storage of extra items, such as recreational vehicles and boats? Brian says his facility does. 10. Studies indicate home organization can affect one's health in positive ways. Why not seek a facility, such as Storage Masters, that is dedicated to personalized and friendly customer service? Storage Masters customers will find complimentary bottled water, a Keurig coffee machine and hot chocolate, cookies and lollipops waiting for them. Brian's been known to create fun, online games such as "Storage Feud," a contest modeled after the popular TV show. In the game, he asks new customers to “Name six items likely found in a storage unit“ or "Name the weirdest things found in a storage unit.” Game winners receive prizes, such as an iPad or free storage credit.

Storage Masters is a family-owned, second-generation business whose Chesterfield's facility has been operating since 1987. 28

Parting Thoughts

109 BIRTHDAY CUPCAKES ONE OF ST. LOUIS' OLDEST RESIDENTS LIVES IN CHESTERFIELD

I

ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

t's not every day someone gets to celebrate a "century" birthday, let alone more than that!  But  Ruth

Brummel Stewart, a 23-year resident of Friendship Village Chesterfield, reveled in a community celebration and a whole lot of cupcakes for her 109th birthday on July 15. Born July 15, 1908, in St. Louis, Ruth grew up at 4243 N. Newstead Ave. She attended Ashland Elementary School and graduated from Beaumont High School in 1926 as a member of the school’s first graduating class. Her mother was from Germany and her father from Poland. She married Soldan High School graduate F.W. Stewart on Nov. 16, 1935. He died in April 2003. Ruth's passion always has been playing the piano, after starting lessons when she was 8 years old. Playing the piano also became her job. When she  graduated high school at the age of 18, she went to work playing piano for the Missouri Rockets  in 1926. The  Rockets eventually moved to New York City and became the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes. She then played for a dance studio, and at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. She also was a member of a small band that traveled and performed throughout the St. Louis region. This lovely lady attributes having music in her life to giving her longevity.  Chesterfield Mayor Bob Nation deemed July 15 as Stewart's own, special day.
