WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CREATED SOMETHING? Wait, that sounds a little intimidating. Let me rephrase: When was the last time you simply made something with your hands? Chances are, it was more recent than you might give yourself credit for. Maybe it was a scratch-made meal or fresh flowers arranged in a vase, or a handwritten note to a loved one. Perhaps it was just building playdough sculptures with your kids after work; that counts, too. The point is, opportunities to create are everywhere—we just have to seize them. We don’t need to be capital-A Artists to have permission to make things by hand; we need only to dive in and relish the small things we can create ourselves on any

old day of the week. LAYOUT DESIGNERS

Why? Because making things is incredibly gratifying. Just ask jewelry artisan Megan DeNev Wussow of DeNev Designs, whose story is on page 22. Ok, so she definitely is a capital-A Artist, but she hasn’t always been. Wussow actually developed her passion for making jewelry after being encouraged by a stranger

who liked a handmade pair of earrings she was wearing, and who eventually offered her a bit of retail space in a local shop. Fast forward 13 years after that serendipitous meeting, and Wussow’s work has now been featured in boutiques around the country.

MOUNTAIN WEST SANE ALLIANCE Glenwood-based River Bridge Regional Center recently announced that the Mountain West Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Alliance has found a permanent home under the River Bridge umbrella. In 2012 the Roaring Fork Valley lost its SANE Program, leaving the community vulnerable and local victims of sexual assault with inadequate services. A small group of  professionals came together to reinstate the  services that victims require, and formed the Mountain West SANE Alliance (MWSA). With dedication and tireless work, the group re-established services and in 2016, MWSA conducted its first SANE Examination. MWSA faced limited funding, mounting volunteer hours, and borrowed space; the longevity of the program soon was in question.To ensure that the community does not lose its adult SANE program again, River Bridge will provide the structure and leadership necessary for the permanency of the program.

HOT SPOT

(CON TI N U ED)

NEW DIGS: “I’ve been dreaming up Batch since we opened up our original place,” smiles owner Aly Sanguily, marketing director and former tasting room manager for husband Chase Engel’s Roaring Fork Beer Company (RFBC). Batch is the summation of her dreams to date. SPEAKEASY AMBITIONS: “This isn’t a bar. We’re not serving shots. We’re more of a ‘living room-meets-library’ taproom vibe, more intimate, more about our brewery—a nice ‘come in with your computer’ kind of thing, and have a fun drink on tap,” Sanguily adds. ABOUT THOSE TAPS: In addition to RFBC beers, 12 more taps spill craft beers from Casey Brewing and Idylwilde, as well as yerba mate and a variety of kombuchas by Elevated Elixirs and Dragonfly. Batch has also tapped other Main Street offerings, from Bonfire nitro coffee to food deliveries from Phat Thai and Allegria. ON MENTORS, SKA BREWING: “They created an incredible sense of community; Durango is ‘Ska World’ over there, and they welcomed us,” Sanguily recalls. “I base my core values around them—we do a lot of philanthropy, support a lot of nonprofits.” SUPPORTING OTHER LOCALS: Batch is not only a favorite new locals’ hangout, it’s also helping the wider community. “We recently hosted space for the ‘How We Grow’ documentary Kickstarter campaign... there was an intent for being in here, a purpose to support. Those are the nights that make us feel really good. I always say we make and sell good beer, but I don’t think our brand would be the same without these kinds of things we do.”

MUST-TRY BEER COCKTAIL "THE VOODOO LADY" RFBC Rum Barrel Aged Imperial Stout + dash Bonfire Nitro Coffee + cane sugar + raw cacao + vanilla bean + Trinidad chocolate + Trinidad scorpion pepper + bhut jolokia pepper Luxurious and velvety, with an earthy hint of chocolate and a spicy warmth that contrasts nicely with a cold mouthfeel.

UN

From-Scratch Pasta Yield: 1 pound WHAT YOU NEED

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting 4 large eggs WHAT YOU DO

1. Mound the flour in the center of a work surface with a well in the middle. Crack the eggs into the well and beat with a fork until smooth, then work flour into eggs with the fork. Use a bench scraper to work in the rest of the flour a little at a time. When the flour is incorporated, form the dough with your hands into a rounded mass for kneading. Lightly dust your workspace with flour and knead dough about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Cover dough with a bowl or plastic wrap and rest 1 1/2 hours, or chill overnight. 2. To roll by hand, flour a clean work surface. Vigorously roll dough to a very thin circle and roll constantly with even pressure as it stretches for several minutes until as thin as possible, almost translucent. 3. To cut by hand, lightly fold sheets one at a time into thirds and cut to desired thickness. Recipe from MarthaStewart.com.

DEUX

Dark Chocolate Truffles WHAT YOU NEED

1/2 cup heavy cream 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 cup cocoa powder, for dusting WHAT YOU DO

1. Bring the cream to just a simmer in a saucepan over low heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate in a bowl and let stand about 10 minutes to melt the chocolate. Add the vanilla, stir until smooth and set aside to cool for 1 hour at room temperature. 2. Beat chocolate at medium speed until thick and light-colored. Spread over the bottom of a baking dish, smooth and refrigerate 2 hours until firm. 3. Pour cocoa powder onto a deep plate or shallow bowl, and using a melon baller or small ice cream scoop, scoop out balls of chocolate. Roll in cocoa powder until coated and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Recipe from FoodNetwork.com.

ENTRY FOYER

“The entry foyer features custom aspen tree artwork.”

JOYCE OCCHIATO HAD BEEN VISITING THE ROARING FORK VALLEY SINCE SHE WAS A CHILD, WHEN SHE VACATIONED

IN GLENWOOD

SPRINGS

WITH HER FAMILY. So when the Denver resident began thinking of purchasing a mountain hideaway where her family could retreat from the hustle and bustle of the front range, her memories of the valley came to mind. Soon she discovered a quiet home tucked in the hills above Reudi Reservoir, and it instantly felt like home. Well, almost. "The house was perfect but if you had seen it before we changed the look, the design was very choppy," she says. "We sought the services of Cathers Home to LIVING ROOM

“The custom Tufenkian rug was the starting point here for the overall design, bringing the blues and browns of the outside spaces in.”

OPEN HOUSE

UPSTAIRS

“Clean, contemporary metal railing keeps the space feeling open. Glass-coated artwork adds a pop of color on the statement wall.”

about it now is that it has an inviting feel, with an open floor plan so that my family can be more together than separated in different rooms. It all flows so well, and it's just a great place for our family. And of course, we still love being able to see Reudi through the trees."   Cathers Home Design Director Denise Taylor worked closely with Occhiato to achieve a specific look. "We used the movie 'Something's Gotta Give' with Jack Nicholson as our inspiration," Taylor says. "She (Occhiato) wanted a kitchen where she could cook and the whole family would hang out together, and in that movie there is an amazing kitchen with two islands where family gathers and interacts."

KITCHEN

“The double-island kitchen is ideal for cooking and interacting.”

"It’s an ongoing intuitive dialogue with the piece, a process with an unknown outcome," she says. "My paintings emerge from my personal experiences in design, the theatrical stage, family life, nature, and my love of spiral marks." Murray also works as the exhibitions manager at The Art Base in Basalt. What's it like to balance both art and arts administration? Here, Murray shares the details of a typical day in her life.

Did You Know? Limited flexibility is the most common cause of muscle, nerve, and joint pain. Limited flexibility increases stress on soft tissues and joints leading to pain, weakness, and degeneration. The most common cause of limited flexibility is muscle adhesion. Adhesion acts like glue in muscles making you weaker and less flexible. It primarily develops

from overuse such as prolonged sitting/standing, exercise, and repetitive motions. Adhesion is the most common and most under-diagnosed problem in the entire human body. With expert care, adhesion is also the most fixable problem. Avail Soft Tissue & Spine is your valley expert for the diagnosis and treatment of adhesion.
