Pat’s Corner Q: When is the best time to paint during a remodel job, before or after? A: Painting before the installation allows for those unfortunate paint accidents to be avoided and not marr the new floor. On the other hand, waiting until after the installation will help you coordinate wall colors to your flooring choice. Necessary precautions need to be made to protect the new flooring however.

Editor’s note When I was expecting my second child in February, I thought I knew what to expect when it came time for the newborn photo shoot in the hospital. I assumed Charlie’s first professional photograph would be taken while he was lying on his back in a bassinet in the classic pose: arms at the side of his tiny head, hands balled into little fists. That’s how it worked with our daughter five years ago anyway. I didn’t even buy the not-so-flattering pictures of Mara, who was swimming in a too-big dress, taken shortly after she was born at Memorial Hospital. But, newborn photography has changed, at least at York Hospital. When the photographer arrived in my hospital room a few days after Charlie was born, she created a backdrop by piling pillows on the bed and covering them with a blanket. She everso-gently laid Charlie in the middle. After snapping several pictures, she turned to me and said she wanted to get a photo with me in it. I laughed. I was wearing a nursing gown. I hadn’t put on makeup in quite some time, and I’m sure I hadn’t showered that day. She assured me the photo would be in good taste, and I would love it. She was right.

York Hospital changed from the traditional “bassinet photography.” We plan to take good care of Charlie’s first photos (of which we purchased many). To do so, I will be sure to use some of the tips from fine art and paper conservationist Maria Pukownik, which you can find on pages 9-11. When I returned to work in April, one of the fun things waiting for me were the many “hot dog” photos readers submitted. I oohed and aahed every day at the adorable pictures we received for our summer contest. You can find the hottest dogs on pages 24-25. But I won’t miss the dog days of summer. I’m looking forward to the cooler days ahead.

Preserve the past for the future

Handle with care

A Scottish coat of arms being restored by Maria Pukownik.

By LESLIE LEWIS for Smart

Ever get inspired by “Antiques Roadshow” to search for treasure in your grandmother’s attic? If you’re lucky enough to eyeball something of value, experts advise that you not attempt to “clean it.” Your innocent intentions could land your find in the junk heap. Enlisting professional help, on the other hand, might not be an expense you’re willing to pay.

PHOTOS BY KATE PENN for Smart

“In that case,” said Gettysburg conservator Maria Pukownik, “you’ll need to proceed very carefully, using the proper tools and cleaning solvents.” Pukownik, who has more than 40 years of experience under her belt, suggested the “clean, repair and protect” strategy for preserving paper goods and clothing. “Don’t attempt highly fragile pieces though,” she warned, “or you’ll be headed for trouble.”

smartmamapa.com | 9


For newspaper, photos and letters Contamination of paper usually comes in the form of dust or dirt. A soft brush can be used for cleaning, but avoid anything abrasive. To repair damage, try acid-free document repair tape. Never use pressure-sensitive tape, such as Scotch tape, because it will eventually oxidize and cause brown spots. If your document or photograph is seriously damaged, because of water or high temperatures, get it professionally treated. Light solvents can work miracles, but using them is best left to the conservator. To store, wrap your item in acid-free paper, keep it away from UV light and maintain it in ­climatic conditions suitable for a human being. Archival framing is another option. An ­archival-frame kit includes UV coated glass to ­filter out sunlight and acid-free matting to prevent mat burn. Once framed, rotate your displays to ­minimize prolonged exposure to natural or ­ artificial light.

For clothing Before cleaning antique clothing, test each color by applying water and then squeezing it between two pieces of paper towel. If it bleeds and is wool, you’ll have to stabilize it in a mixture containing one gallon of water with one tablespoon of household vinegar. To wash, use cold water and a small amount of mild detergent. Unfortunately, this ­procedure can’t be used for cotton. Stained cotton can be treated with hydrogen peroxide or a poultice of Borax. Just be sure to treat the stain and not the entire garment. Dry cleaning isn’t advisable unless you’re certain special care will be taken. Because fabric is generally weakened by age, no wringing or hanging is recommended. Instead, lay clothing out to dry. To protect items, wrap them in acid-free tissue paper, keep them out of direct sunlight and store them in a suitable environment (i.e. no damp basements or musty attics).

When in doubt, don’t go it alone. The bottom line is that it’s very easy to ruin what you’re trying to preserve. If it’s irreplaceable, consider contacting a specialist.

Think outside the pumpkin when decorating this fall

Know your

gourds By BETH VRABEL for Smart

Ryan Fretz, aesthetic director for the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, uses some tools that the average home decorator doesn’t have available: a staff of designers, mechanics and gardeners. His degree in fine arts doesn’t hurt, either. Forget plain old jack-o’-lanterns. During October, dried-gourd ghosts haunt nearly every tree at the Manheim fairgrounds. A 30-foot-tall pumpkin-headed scarecrow waves to visitors. Skinny gourds look like slithering snakes. Pumpkins seem to be afflicted with 16th-century-era leprosy. Colorful sprays of corn husks and grasses dot lampposts. This autumn, think outside the ­pumpkin. Here are a few of Fretz’s tricks to make your home decor hauntingly ­boo-tiful.

Go off the beaten track To get the most unusual produce at the best price, Fretz heads to the Leola 14 | smart

Produce Auction, 135 Brethren Church Road in Leola. The auction is open to regular folks and not just garden centers on some days. Call 656-9592 for details. There, pick up for $4 a specialty gourd that would go for $15 at a center, Fretz said.

Think floral For an elegant look, consider gourds as just another piece of a floral display. Fretz gathers seed heads from grasses, locust pods and corn husks, “pretty much whatever we have lying around,” and incorporates them into displays. Hot glue, wire and twine pull the pieces together, with a pair of gourds in the center.

Plan for next year Don’t toss your gourds at the end of the season, dry them instead. Dried gourds weigh a few ounces instead of pounds, and they can be sanded, painted and crafted into wonderful shapes, either scary or elegant. Just put them away and forget about them for months. Be warned, though, the transformation isn’t pretty. “And you need to be willing to deal with some mold,” Fretz said.

Gourd glossary

Snake gourds: Long, green and, well, snakelike. They can be painted to look like snakes. Apple and birdhouse gourds: These gourds can be dried and painted to ­resemble fruit. They also make great ­birdhouses once dried. Cinderella pumpkins: These squat, wide and bumpy pumpkins look like something out of the fairy tale. Jack-be-little pumpkins: The palm-sized pumpkins are great in crafts. Turn them into pretty centerpieces by tracing the shape of a tea light candle on top of the ­pumpkin, ­carving out the notch and adding the candle.

SMART TIPS

■■ Don’t try to dry a pumpkin; only ­thick-skinned gourds can handle the drying process. “Pumpkin isn’t going to dry out,” Fretz said. “A pumpkin will turn into an icky mess.” ■■ You can use fresh gourds for the ghosts, too. But remember that they weigh much more than dried gourds, so consider that when attaching the ghosts to posts and branches.


Get crafty

Drying gourds Step 1: Find a dry place. “Some place that you just don’t have to look at,” Fretz said. Put the gourd in a cardboard box on a shelf in the garage or shed. Step 2: Don’t look. “In the middle of winter, you don’t want to look at them.” All the moisture comes out of the gourd ­during a weeping process. “There will be an odor,” Fretz said. “It’s not terrible, but it will be distinct.” Step 3: Craft the gourds. Dried gourds weigh just a couple ounces. To craft them, pull the seeds off the shell, scrub off the mold and, if going for an elegant look, sand down the shell. Apple gourds and pear-shaped ­birdhouse gourds can be painted to look like the fruits.

Create a dried-gourd ghost Step 1: Keep the dried gourd in its ­natural grayish-black dried look. Using a hammer, pop out eye holes and mouth. Step 2: Using wire and hot glue, add pine branches to the bottom of the gourd. Step 3: Cover with white fabric. Use wire or twine to attach the ghost to a tree branch or lamppost.

Make a corn-husk sunburst Step 1: Gather similar-length corn husk leaves into a sunburst arrangement. Hot glue pieces together. Step 2: Add a small round red or orange gourd to the center, attaching with twine, wire and/or hot glue, depending upon the weight.

SPOOKY IDEAS FOR HALLOWEEN

Creating a spooky mood on your front porch or front yard doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming nightmare. Here are some tips:

Build a scarecrow

Stuff old clothes with newspaper. For the head, a ­plastic milk jug covered with papiermâché will do the trick.

Make jack-o’-lantern Jr.

Buy small plastic orange party favor bags and stuff them with newspaper. Tie off the tops with green or black ribbon. Let the kids draw faces on the orange “heads” with black markers. The miniature jack-o’-lanterns will look good dangling from tree branches or on the rail of your porch.

Shine an eerie light

Colored bulbs are available at many drug and discount stores. Look around the house for a lamp that’s easy to reposition and redirect and ­consider splashing the weird light against a wall or doorway.

Carve your own gravestone

Craft your own monuments by purchasing, carving and decorating pieces of Styrofoam, which cost $1.99 to $10.99 a sheet at Michaels. “But don’t use spray paint, it will eat the Styrofoam,” warned Michaels assistant manager Barbara Bennett, adding that you’ll have to hand paint it with acrylic paint. — McClatchy Newspapers

Olson and York Wallcoverings are working on a new commercial line of wallpaper. By SEAN ADKINS for Smart

Candice Olson, host of HGTV’s “Divine Design with Candice Olson,” spent a day working in York recently. No, the veteran designer was not looking to use the White Rose City as the backdrop for an upcoming ­episode. She was in town to work on her new commercial wallcovering

line with her license partner, York Wallcoverings. Within the past five years, Olson and York Wallcoverings have put together two residential wallcovering design catalogues and one children’s catalogue. Olson broke away from her busy design schedule to answer questions about trends, style, the economy and what’s next for her professionally.


What is your goal as a designer? As a designer, my goal is to not only make rooms that are beautiful and ­functional, but to create spaces that are truly personal reflections of the clients based on what I believe makes up a great space. What makes great design? Good design is an investment of time, energy and money. Everything I do is ­current and on trend, but it isn’t trendy. After that, design is about fusion. It’s the fusion of traditional, modern and ­contemporary styles. It’s traditional form and scale and proportion. All of that adheres to clean simple, modern lines. In terms of interior design, what are the current trends? In this era of mass manufacturing, where things are cheap and cheerful, I think that people are increasingly looking toward things that are handcrafted. They are ­looking for things that, if they go to dinner at a neighbor’s house, they won’t see there. They are looking for something that will make their space so different because they have something that is so unusual, handcrafted or out of the ordinary. Where does York County fall in terms of overall design? The area does tend to love traditional, but also, because people do travel and watch design television, clients are much more savvy now then they were 20 years ago. I do think their tastes are much more diverse. They still want to have heirloom antiques and the sense of their own history, but they want to be able to live with those heirlooms in fresh modern ways. With the recession, more people are looking to invest in their homes. What design projects can people tackle while keeping the costs down? Their design projects are an investment of time, energy and money. Especially money. ... The beautiful sofa, the great armoire, the beautiful carpet –– those are great investments. Those are core pieces. To keep your room current, it’s wallpaper, it’s color, it’s big impact statements that you can change up without breaking the bank. What is next for you, professionally?

Some newborns get star treatment in the hospital By LEIGH ZALESKI for Smart

Your infant’s first photos are an automatic must save. How could you forget what he looked like, eyes scrunched and face red, all bundled up in his bassinet? Here’s another reason to hang on to them: Infant photography in some hospitals has become more personalized, similar to a baby photo shoot. York Hospital contracts Our365 to photograph all infants’ first days. The company switched about a year and a half ago from taking photos of infants in bassinets to using portrait-studio-style

photography. “Bassinet photography wasn’t really like being a photographer,” said Kimberly Fling, one of the three photographers at York Hospital. “It was like pushing a button.” Our365 offers eight poses for each infant. Some poses can include mom, dad and siblings. Fling said mothers are informed about the pictures at their obstetrician’s office. She said many parents come prepared with outfits. She recently photographed a baby wearing a suit and tie. Some parents

prefer the naked look. Photo packages range from $29.95 to $149.95. Parents can also order birth announcements and keepsakes, such as holiday ornaments for $29.95 and a CD to reprint photos for $99.95. Photographers take photos whether parents choose to buy or not. A photo of each infant born at York Hospital is posted on wellspan.org and at our365.com. The traditional pose is used for the hospital’s site. Al Sexton, Our365’s director of hospital operations for the Northeast, said the portrait-studio photography allowed Our365 to expand its offerings in catalogs, but the prices are about the same as when bassinet photos were sold. He said the company’s goal was to delight parents and offer a contemporary style. He said infant photos are incredibly significant to parents. “It is a life event that parents will remember forever,” Sexton said. “It’s almost like a family heirloom. They want to remember that momentous occasion, and we help them capture that.” The photo experience might hold more significance for Allison Hiser, 32,

of Wrightsville. Her daughter Isabella Grace was born 12 weeks early in March. Babies in the neonatal intensive care unit don’t get their pictures taken until they’re ready to go home. Isabella still needed a final checkup, but she was ready to go for her photo shoot. Hiser said Isabella’s dad, Ben Ferguson, was deployed to Afghanistan at the end of June, and Hiser wanted him to have the photos to take with him. “I never knew hospital pictures could be so fun,” Hiser said. “It’s nice to have ­someone help you through this process.”

❏❏Be ready to be in the photos. ❏❏Photos are taken primarily in the ­morning and afternoon. If you’d like dad and the baby’s siblings to be in the pictures, plan accordingly. ❏❏Have outfits ready, but realize that your newborn might not cooperate with being dressed and undressed. ❏❏Have cash, a check or credit card on hand, or opt to pay your bill later. ❏❏For new moms, have someone help you choose what to buy because it’s hard to decide when you’re sleep deprived or recovering. ❏❏ Don’t worry about making the ultimate decision. You can always order more online after you get home.

About Our365 More than 2,000 hospitals nationwide contract Our365 for infant ­photography, said Al Sexton, director of hospital ­operations for the Northeast. Sexton said the company was one of the first to switch

from bassinet photography to portraitstudio photography, which has become the industry standard. To see photos of babies born at York Hospital, visit wellspan.org or ­ our365.com.

Take your own photos Infant photographer Kimberly Fling said the best time to photograph an infant is when he or she is fed, warm and sleeping. “It’s impossible to pose a newborn baby when they are awake,” she said. Also, use a white backdrop to eliminate redness in the face.

Other area hospitals Memorial Hospital, Gettysburg Hospital and Hanover Hospital contract Cherished Memories for infant photography. Service consultant Deb Pascale said about 1,000 hospitals work with Cherished Memories. Infants’ pictures are taken in bassinets.

HOT DOGS

Summer

photo contest By KARA EBERLE for Smart

Hazy, hot and humid seemed to be the forecast for most days this summer,

but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the photos entered in our Hot Dog Summer Photo Contest. We received pictures of dogs ­chilling out by jumping through ­sprinklers, floating on rafts and ­soaking in kiddie pools. Some dogs donned sunglasses and goggles. Others hung out on the porch, in a hammock or spent their days in front of the air conditioner. We received dozens of adorable photos, but we decided the three winning pooches truly were the

“hottest” dogs. The family of our first-place pooch, Max, received four tickets to Hersheypark. As the runner up, Skeeter’s family got four tickets to a York Revolution game. In third place, Mila’s owners won a Smart Mama tote bag filled with goodies, which included a Smart Mama Handbook. To see more photos, visit our Facebook fan page at www.facebook. com/smartmamapa.

911 Teach your kids to dial

By BETH VRABEL for Smart

Glenn Jansen Sr. welcomed a crew of preschoolers and kindergartners into Dover Township’s fire station recently. And then he drilled them. The deputy chief held up a lighter. “What would you do if you saw this?” The children chorused that they’d tell their moms. “What would you do if your clothes caught fire from a candle?” “Stop, drop and roll!” they shouted. Two kids even demonstrated as he reminded them to also cover their faces.

But here’s a question for the parents: What would your children do if you were injured or unconscious? What would they do if they were alone and smelled smoke? What would they do if a burglar broke into their home? In March, a 7-year-old boy in Norwalk, Calif., saved his family from home invaders by dialing 911 after grabbing his little sister and a portable phone, and hiding in a bathroom. When the armed men found the children and realized the boy had called authorities, they fled.

Authorities credited the boy with saving his family. But his parents are also heroes. They taught him exactly what to do in an emergency. Just like teaching them to stop, drop and roll, parents need to educate their children about dialing 911, Jansen said. “It’s something you need to talk about regularly.” Start having the conversation when children are about 5 years old, Jansen said. Tell them it’s for “anytime they’re scared and their parent isn’t there.” Brian Morrin, formerly of the York

County Office of Emergency Management agrees. Keep it simple. “(Tell them,) you should only call 911 when you need a police officer, firefighter or ambulance. Only call when someone is hurt or you see danger like fire.” If parents are worried that introducing the concept is introducing worries, watch how the experts do it. Bring them to a fire station for a tour, Jansen said. “Every station will take time to talk to kids and tell them why it’s important to be safe,” Jansen said. Morrin suggests keeping an emergency card with vital information by the phone.

Is it possible the United States is too clean? Children are immunized and use so many antibacterial wipes, hand gels and soaps that their bodies are not able to defend themselves, said Dr. Michelle Weiss of the Family Center for Allergy and Asthma in York Township. The dilemma, known as the hygiene hypothesis, has led to a substantial increase in allergies over the years. “There are more people with allergies now than 10 to 15 years ago,” Weiss said. “When I was young, I didn’t know anyone with food allergies, and now we all know someone with food allergies.” Weiss said if one parent has an

30 | smart

allergy, there’s a 50 percent chance each child will develop allergies. If both parents have allergies, there’s a 75 percent chance. The best way to decrease the chance is to breast-feed, said Ann deBien, a nurse practitioner at Allergy and Asthma Consultants in Spring Garden Township and Hanover. The milk coats the intestines, helping to keep food allergens out of the bloodstream. “It doesn’t give any guarantee that your child won’t have allergies,” deBien said. But, “it’s the best way that you can protect your child.” Keisha Ricks, a mother of three in North Codorus Township, has a 3-yearold daughter allergic to chocolate and

a 9-year-old son allergic to “everything outside,” she said. The doctors told her it’s easier to say what her son Dylan’s not allergic to — cockroaches. Ricks said she noticed her son’s asthma could happen at any time, and that’s when she asked doctors if it could be linked to allergies. It was. “Whenever we have patients come in with asthma ... almost always they have a very strong allergy testing result,” deBien said. “It’s so hand in hand. It’s like what came first, the chicken or the egg?” Children can be tested for specific allergies at birth or at any age, Weiss said. Specialists can put an extract of specific foods, pollen, etc., on a toothpick and touch it through the skin. If a bump or

small rash presents itself, an allergy is confirmed. Once Dylan’s allergies were confirmed, doctors prescribed medication to lessen his symptoms. Ricks keeps his allergy and asthma medicine on hand at all times. “Even when Dylan is outside playing, I notice I’m very protective even though I’ve given him his medicine,” Ricks said. There are three ways to treat allergies. If the allergy is produced by an irritant in the environment, the patient might consider running the air conditioning in the summer, not hanging clothes out to dry and so on. If the allergy cannot to be treated with environmental control, Weiss suggests over-the-counter medications, such as Zyrtec and Claritin. She cautions against the use of Benadryl. “There are lots of studies of people taking Benadryl at 10 at night,” Weiss said, “driving at 8 in the morning and doing worse than people who are legally drunk. They think they’re fine; they feel like they’re conscious.” But Weiss said anyone driving under the influence of Benadryl can be charged with DUI of a sedative drug. A third option is an allergy vaccine, which will change the immune system over the course of three to five years of shots. “It’s a very long, built-up process,” Weiss said. “It takes about a year for them to start working, but it can really help people feel better. In the end, it’s less medicine and less money.”

‘Sweet potatoes are a gold mine that a lot of people haven’t discovered. There are so many ways you can use them.’ —Corinne Huenke, Stewartstown

Sweet

potatoes Dig into this healthy food By BETH BENCE REINKE for Smart

If Thanksgiving is the only time you eat sweet potatoes, you’re missing out on a “super food” full of powerful antioxidants, said Shrewsbury Township resident Jack Osman, a retired health professor and sweet potato grower. “Just one four-ounce serving of sweet potatoes will give you a whole day’s supply of beta-carotene.” And that’s not all. Sweet potatoes are a good source of other antioxidants, such as vitamins E and C, as well as iron and trace minerals, he said. Each year in September, Osman hosts the PA Sweet Potato Festival to raise awareness about these nutritious orange gems and make freshly-dug sweet potatoes available to the community. To work them into your family meals, try substituting sweet potatoes

34 | smart

anywhere you would normally use white potatoes in cooking, Osman said. “My goal as a nutrition educator is to get people to eat sweet potato products twice a week, not just twice a year.” Eating sweet potatoes year-round is the norm for Corinne Huenke of Stewartstown, who has whipped up countless sweet potato dishes for her husband and 11 children over the years. Whether growing her own or ­getting them from the PA Sweet Potato Festival, she likes to keep whole sweet potatoes on hand because they store well for many months. “Sweet potatoes are a gold mine that a lot of people haven’t discovered,” Huenke said. “There are so many ways you can use them.” She believes moms can get the good nutrition of sweet potatoes into their kids by trying creative recipes with eye and taste appeal.

ILLUSTRATIONS BY SAMANTHA DELLINGER for Smart

Yams or sweet potatoes?

Sweet potatoes and yams are the same thing, right? Nope. “Sweet potatoes and yams are two totally different foods,” Osman said. The canned “yams” you buy at the grocery store are actually sweet potatoes, he said. Why the confusion? Years ago, people started calling sweet potatoes “yams,” and the misnomer stuck. Osman


explained that yams are large, underground tubers that grow in the tropics. Yams are low in nutrition, very dry and not sweet. In contrast, sweet potatoes are classified as storage roots. Sweet potatoes are moist, sweet, packed with nutrition and come in a variety of colors, such as orange, yellow, white and even purple. Commercially packaged sweet potato products, such as chips, pancake mix and frozen fries, are gaining ­popularity. Osman predicts restaurants might get in on the action soon. “I expect to see sweet potato fries at fast food restaurants in the near future,” he said.

Sweet potato mash

Sneak the good nutrition of sweet potatoes into your ­family’s meals by adding sweet potato mash to baked goods, pancakes, stews or ­casseroles. To make the mash, scrub five to six sweet potatoes, pierce with a fork and wrap in ­aluminum foil. Bake at 325 degrees for about 90 minutes (a little longer for larger ­potatoes.) Cool until easily handled, then slice sweet potatoes in half and scoop out flesh into a large bowl. Mash sweet potatoes and freeze in 1/2-cup or 1-cup servings. When you want to use sweet potatoes, thaw and blend into a recipe. — Jack Osman, Shrewsbury Township

Being invited to a party at a friend’s house is a fun excuse to indulge in calorie-laden appetizers while chatting with the girls. But what happens when the party also functions as an opportunity for an independent contractor to sell jewelry, kitchen gadgets, clothing, purses or makeup? Should you feel obligated to buy something? Should you stay home because you don’t have money to spend? What’s the right thing to do? Heather Rife, who has sold Silpada jewelry for more than three years, said she doesn’t expect everyone to make a purchase when she holds a party. “Everyone’s finances are different,” said Rife, 34, of Spring Garden Township. “If

they see something they like, I tell them how they can earn it for free (by) hosting a party.” Patti Wentz, who has sold Thirty-One Gifts (purses, lunch bags and more) for about two years, agreed. “The only expectation I have is that everyone has a good time but is respectful of the hostess,” she said. “I do not take it personally if each guest does not purchase something.” But would they rather you stay home if you don’t plan to buy anything? The short answer: No.


Thinking about throwing a shopping party? Follow these tips to make sure it's a success. ■■Invite lots of people. Expect that only a quarter of the people invited will attend. ■■Get orders from people who can’t attend the party. ■■Check in with your consultant regularly. ■■Decide whether to serve ­alcohol. If you serve ­alcohol, hand out drinks after the show starts, so guests will be focused on the ­presentation. ■■Call guests the night before to make sure they’re still coming. Source: ehow.com

When Heather Rife hosts a Silpada party, she makes guests feel special, not pressured into buying something.

“I think it’s worse to have a party where no one shows. At least if a few people come, it’s worth your efforts,” Rife said. So what happens if there’s a small turnout? Wentz, 47, of York, said she tries to make the best of every situation. “I have had shows with two guests, where the hostess earned lots of great free items. So it is always worth both my time and the hostess’ time to follow through on the show, no matter how many people come or how many place an order.” What people might not understand is that being a consultant requires a lot of work. “Many people don’t think of it as a real job, that consultants only do it for fun,” said Wentz, who quit her full-time job in June to focus on selling Thirty-One. “While it is fun for me, it is also a source of income.”

Book Smarts Keep up with what your neighbors are reading By TARA HAWKINS for Smart

Tara’s Smart Pick “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” by Seth Grahame-Smith For readers who weren’t interested in devouring Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” saga, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” offers a tasty story minus the teen drama. Most known for his best-selling parody “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” Grahame-Smith weaves extraordinary accounts of vampires within the pages of history. Set in Lincoln’s own time and context, this novel brings new intrigue into America’s bloody Civil War. Lincoln might seem a strange choice for a vampire hunter; but this novel makes it almost believable.

Janice Laird, Washington Township “I enjoyed this novel because it is a mixture of modern mystery and some very interesting historical information about Asia. Tan creates many interesting characters in her books with a lot of personality. In this novel, she shows how modern American culture interacts with ancient Asian culture through a humorous group of travelers destined for Burma.”

Reader submission

But you don’t look sick

Education is crucial to understanding. In this reader submission, Shennee Rutt of Manchester shares what it’s like to live with lupus. Her goal is to gain exposure for this complicated and often misunderstood disease. By SHENNEE RUTT for Smart

This is my story on living with lupus. I was diagnosed with lupus approximately three years ago. I was in the prime of my working career, hard at work as a human resources recruiter. Everything came to a screeching halt when I began to not feel well. It started out like a bad flu. I had stiff, tender and swollen joints, extreme fatigue and pain that would last for days. I also suffered migraines, redness and a butterfly rash across my face and chest. I went to doctor after doctor, and no one could tell me what was wrong. I probably had lupus long before I was diagnosed. Finally, a wonderful doctor in York figured it out. *** Living with lupus is like living with an enemy on a daily basis. I don’t know how I will feel from day to day or hour

42 | smart

to hour. Appointments are scheduled and rescheduled. Lunch and dinner with a friend is postponed. Life is delayed. On a typical day, I wake in the morning to extreme dry mouth and eyes. I need a glass of water and prescription eye drops to clear the “fog.” I usually fix myself breakfast and coffee and then take five of my medications. Depending on how I feel, I proceed with my day. But there are days when I am in so much pain I can’t get out of bed! I never know what havoc lupus has in store for me: cognitive impairment, joint pain, a migraine, fatigue and exhaustion. I have it all just on different days. A “flare” and episode of pain can last hours, days or even a week. I must avoid being in the sun for long periods of time. I have to wear long sleeves, sunscreen and a hat while outdoors. To stay connected to the world, I log on to my e-mail and other social media. I also do advocacy work for the Lupus Foundation of Pennsylvania and other nonprofit organizations I am passionate about. I enjoy reading, blogging, social media, gardening, music and cooking, as my lupus permits. In the evening, I take four more of my medications, retire to the living room and relax with a book, watch TV and sip a cup of tea. Before bed, I take two more medications to help me get the rest I so badly need. All in all, I take nine medications a day just to “manage,” only to begin the routine again the next day. I’m 38 years old, and I very badly want to enjoy life. I am not sure what the future has in store for me or my health. It is a daily struggle. ***

I live my life the very best way I possibly can. I am blessed I have my life, my devoted and loving husband, and family and friends who understand. I do the best I can. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

What is lupus?

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that leads to inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ in your body, including the heart, lungs, brain, blood, kidneys, joints or skin. The immune system normally protects the body against viruses, bacteria, cancers and other undesirable invaders. With a disease such as lupus, the immune system loses the ability to tell the difference between undesirable substances and its own cells and tissues. About 1.5 million people have been diagnosed with lupus.

Support lupus research with beauty

Shennee Rutt collaborated with Sueanne Shirzay from New York, and they created a necklace called "Butterflies for Lupus." To purchase a necklace, visit http://www.etsy.com/ listing/49711174/blue-butterfliesfor-lupus-necklace. A portion of the proceeds will benefit www.LupusPa.org.

Summer days are fading fast, but that doesn’t mean your tan needs to fade away, too. Try NARS Orgasm/ Laguna Blush Bronzer Duo and Orgasm Nail Polish Set, available at Sephora. This bronzer/blush set is ideal for fairer skin types that tend to need a boost in radiance. To get the most natural look, use a foundation brush to blend. Apply the bronzer in a circular motion over the edges of your face. You want to hit the high points on your face where the sun would hit it. You can lightly apply the blush to apples of your cheeks. Find them by smiling, then sweep the blush over cheeks using a slanted blush brush. Remember to blend the edges after you applied the blush to leave a natural finish. Lastly, add a splash of color to your nails with the complementary shade of nail polish. For more makeup tips and product reviews, check out www.yorkblog.com/madeup.

We are pleased to offer nutrition and dietary counseling as well as prenatal nutrition classes. Ask your provider about these services today.

Making time for mom We asked moms to share how they find “me” time during the ­summer months. Kelly McCluskey, pictured left, a mother of two boys and a triathlete, responded. Read

I love to read, and I realize the importance for my two boys to also partake. So I squeeze in “mommy” time by incorporating the 15-minute reading rule. We all take a break and read something silently for at least 15 minutes. If your kids are small and can’t read on their own, encourage them to simply look at the pictures on their own. If you have older children, they can read to the younger ones.

Have girl time

Hang out with other moms. I always feel better after a lunch out or a night out with the girls. You can compare notes and find out what other moms are doing with their lives and kids. Get a babysitter or have your significant other watch the kids for a night or afternoon so you can grab a movie or dinner with a friend.

Join a gym

When my kids were little, I joined the YMCA. They have wonderful day care, and I was able to send my kids there worry-free while I got a workout. Now that my kids are older (9 and 13), we still go to the Y, but now they can do their own workout at the weight room designed for kids.

Share chores

I am a firm believer in getting my kids involved in whatever daily activities need to be done. Give them age-appropriate things to do — cleaning up their bedrooms and bathroom and taking out trash. The point is everyone pitches in, and we get chores done faster and that leaves more “me” time.

SMART TIP

Don’t ever let anyone make you feel bad for having some time to yourself. You’ll be a better person and a better mom for it!

ONE SMART WOMAN

Life with a positive spin From hobbyist to business owner By TARA HAWKINS for Smart

Have you always been crafty? Yes, but I didn’t get to devote much time to it while I was raising my children. I learned to knit and spin in my early 40s, once my children were grown. Later, I turned my hobby into a business. How long have you had your stand at Central Market? About three years ago, I came in and asked to have another stand take my stuff on consignment. That stand didn’t last very long, so I started my own. I love Central Market! It is a perfect place

to have a business. It has been a market for 120 years. Being part of preserving that ­history is amazing. There is a great sense of community among the business owners and the regular customers. People learn who you are and what you like. There is a support system that isn’t around in most places. The vendors all shop from each other and support each other. The shop owners aren’t out to make a million. They are doing something that they believe in. Plus, there is just good stuff! Do you think that it is important to buy locally? I don’t think people realize the impact of buying locally. We have gotten into the mindset of convenience and forget the impact. There are some stores around that should be called “The Made in China Store.” Shopping only at those places could take away local jobs or make

it hard for local businesses to survive. What type of items do you sell in your stand? We have very one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry; handcrafted knit ware — unusual hats, scarves; hand-dyed and spun yarn; over 80 loose teas; hand-blown teapots and other tea ware. What do you use to make your handcrafted jewelry? I look to use hand-blown glass, vintage milk glass, brass and copper in my jewelry. I like it to look antiquey. I also have some basic beading and knitted wire bracelets. Each piece is unique. I never duplicate. I like everyone to know that their piece is special. Are there any other places that you sell your jewelry and knit ware? Just at Central Market. That keeps me busy enough! I also offer knitting, crochet, basic beading, needle felting and polymer-clay classes. Most classes are based on request and take place during Central Market’s regular hours. I am so lucky to get to do something that I love. I wish that everyone could do that.
