Cultivating Creativity. FEBRUARY WEATHER OFTEN HAS US STUCK INSIDE, GOING A LITTLE STIR-CRAZY AS WE EAGERLY AWAIT SPRING. So this month we’ve come up with some new ways to help you pass the time indoors by cultivating creativity.

CONTRIBUTING WRITERS

Maria Eilers, Laura Leavitt, Tera Michelson CONTRIBUTING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Mark Garrett Photography, Len Kaltman-West Chester Corporate Photography

Are you a DIY-er or do you have a mound of half-finished projects haunting you? If I’m being completely honest, I have a long history of starting artistic projects that I never quite seem to finish. I have a craft desk that still holds the materials needed to create a baby scrapbook for my now 12-year-old son. Next to my dust-covered sewing machine is a stack of material that my kids and I were going to use to make hats for a winter coat drive—a project we started more than two years ago. If this sounds familiar, you’ll appreciate the simplicity and speed of the do-it-yourself projects we feature this month. Inside you can try one of our ideas for a hand-made Valentine’s Day gift. If you prefer someone else makes the treats for you, you’ll enjoy meeting the owner of Delicious Designs Cookies in Olde West Chester. We wanted to find a unique local artist to spotlight who would inspire our readers to

FEBRUARY IS PET DENTAL HEALTH MONTH The key to your pet’s long and healthy life is a healthy body and immune system. A healthy mouth leads to a long, happy life. It is far greater to prevent oral disease than to ‘treat’ oral disease, such as pain, infection and tooth loss (less costly as well). A thorough yearly oral exam will help keep you informed of your pet’s dental health. Visit Animal Hospital of West Chester for special dental offers during the month of February.

Singer-Bonk started her West Chester baking business by offering Camp Cookie, a summer camp experience that included cookie-decorating and other activities. As the camp and birthday parties ventures grew, she knew she needed a permanent space where she could continue to expand. The bakery in Olde West Chester now also offers classes for children’s groups and adults, in addition to the made-to-order cookies and treats. “Fresh cookies and confections are always available for purchase in-store, but a majority of what I do is by custom order,” Singer-Bonk says.

in her muzzle and use brushstrokes to paint. Kallay credits Chloe’s instructor at Canine Good Citizen for her training skills. “I learned so much from our instructor about training her and being creative, taking it step by step,” Kallay says. Chloe is gentle and patient, and motivated by games with a tennis ball or Frisbee. She paints at parks, special events and fundraisers. Kallay and Chloe visit assisted care facilities for the elderly, families of sick children at Ronald McDonald House, and children at St. Joseph’s Orphanage. Chloe is a furry philanthropist for other pets in need, giving fifty percent of the income generated from her paintings to support PAWS Adoption Center in Monroe. Chloe is a friendly dog, eager to please and quick to learn. She loves people. When your eyes meet hers, her white-tipped tail swishes back and forth with joy, in a similar motion as her paintbrush when she paints. Kallay wants to share her gifted Pupcasso with people of all ages. “She has never met a stranger! She really loves people. She has such a personality. She has a way of making people smile, whether they are ‘dog people’ or not,” Kallay says of Chloe. “I want to be able to share that with people.” Border collies are smart. Kallay has trained Chloe not only to paint, but also to play guitar, compete as a dock diver, in agility and with a disc. She performs a variety of tricks. Kallay is continuously preparing Chloe to stay disciplined in busy and distracting environments. You may see them together around town, training in local pet-friendly retail shops. Chloe isn’t the only one being trained; she is busy training her human, too. “She has the most beautiful spirit I’ve ever met,” Kallay says. “Chloe was able to help me love deeper. It was so meant to be.” Have a dog-loving Valentine? Make a bid for Chloe’s masterpiece pictured here. Watch for a February auction on our  Facebook page,  Facebook.com/WestChesterandLibertyLifestyle. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Peaches Bully Rescue, a safe-haven for bully breeds of all shapes and sizes. Learn more at PeachesBullyRescue.com.

“SHE HAS NEVER MET A STRANGER! SHE REALLY LOVES PEOPLE. SHE HAS SUCH A PERSONALITY. SHE HAS A WAY OF MAKING PEOPLE SMILE, WHETHER THEY ARE ‘DOG PEOPLE’ OR NOT,” KALLAY SAYS OF CHLOE. “I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SHARE THAT WITH PEOPLE.”

isfies audiences of all ages and is likely to leave you rolling with laughter.

Two ensemble casts will create what they dub a “Neo-Futurist sketch comedy” performance, where 10 actors bring the audience along for the fast-paced challenge of putting on 30 “plays” in 60 minutes. Features include trying to make a two-minute version of Macbeth and other enigmas like a play about “the absurdity of running with scissors.” You’ll go outside your comfort zone by getting to know what behaviors we sometimes don’t recognize because we’ve grown so accustomed to them. “Splash-Zone” seating is suggested for those who want to join in on the fun, and the show is intended for mature audiences.

MAKE IT FEEL LIKE AN EXTRA SPECIAL AT-HOME VALENTINE’S DAY THIS YEAR WITH THOUGHTFUL TOUCHES FROM THE HEART—AND HANDS

+ 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.
