>> "CREATIVE LIVING." UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND UP TO DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD. WITH YOUR HOST, SHERYL BORDEN. >> THANKS FOR JOINING ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING." WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW TO CREATE DESIGNS WITH FABRIC MARKERS. WE'LL DEMONSTRATE SOME NUTRITIOUS FAMILY DINNERS AND SHOW HOW TO MAKE A JACKET FROM A SWEATSHIRT. ONE OF MY GUESTS IS SHANNON BIELKE, AND SHE'S A DESIGNER AND CRAFTER FROM PAYSON, ARIZONA. SHANNON'S GOING TO SHOW HOW TO USE TULIPS' NEW FABRIC MARKERS TO DECORATE ALL SORTS OF ITEMS, INCLUDING BABY CLOTHES, BAGS, T-SHIRTS, AND MORE. HER COMPANY IS SHA AND COMPANY. ANOTHER GUEST IS PAT BAIRD, AND SHE'S A REGISTERED DIETICIAN AND SPOKESPERSON FOR COUNTRY CROCK. PAT CITES RESEARCH THAT SHOWS THAT FAMILIES WHO EAT TOGETHER TEND TO COMMUNICATE BETTER. AND SHE'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE SOME RECIPES THAT WILL MAKE YOUR TABLE A MAGNET FOR FAMILY DINNERS. SHE LIVES IN GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT. AND WE'LL BEGIN THE SHOW WITH CINDY LOSEKAMP, WHO IS A DESIGNER AND AUTHOR WHO SAYS YOU CAN SLICE THEM, SHORTEN THEM, LENGTHEN THEM, AND MUCH MORE. AND SHE'S TALKING ABOUT MAKING A JACKET FROM A SWEATSHIRT, WHICH SHE'LL DEMONSTRATE. CINDY'S COMPANY IS SO ARTFULLY YOURS INCORPORATED, AND SHE'S FROM TRENTON, INDIANA. CINDY, IT'S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU ON THE SHOW. AND I LOVE SEEING WHAT YOU'VE DONE SINCE THE LAST TIME YOU CAME. I LIKE THIS PROJECT BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE SAY, "OH, I COULDN'T SEW. I COULDN'T MAKE A SWEATSHIRT OR SOMETHING." BUT WHAT'S THE ANSWER TO THAT? >> WELL, YOU JUST BUY ONE AND DECORATE IT. AND IT'S A LOT MORE FUN THAT WAY. YOU GET A LOT-- YOU LET THEM DO THE BASIC WORK, AND THEN YOU GET TO DO THE FUN WORK. AND I THINK THAT'S A LOT OF FUN FOR ALL OF US. 'CAUSE NOBODY HAS ENOUGH TIME. >> AND IF YOU HAVE A SWEATSHIRT THAT'S YOUR FAVORITE ONE, BUT MAYBE THERE'S A BLEACH SPOT SOMEWHERE OR MAYBE A SLIGHTLY WORN SPOT, THIS IS A PERFECT PROJECT, ISN'T IT? >> IT IS. IT IS. >> LET'S SEE, THIS FIRST ONE'S CALLED SALT BOX GLEN. AND LET'S JUST TAKE A LOOK AT IT. THIS IS AN OLD--I MEAN, THIS IS A SWEATSHIRT. I DON'T KNOW HOW OLD IT IS. >> IT IS. IT IS A SWEATSHIRT. AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S A LOT OF FUN TO DO THIS BECAUSE IT GETS-- YOU HAVE THINGS THAT YOU LIKE AND THAT MAYBE YOU WANT TO SHOW PEOPLE--SHOW THE WORLD THAT YOU ENJOY THAT TYPE OF THING. AND THIS IS MORE OF A PRIMITIVE LOOK, BUT IT'S A REALLY NICE ONE. THEN IT'S BEEN--AND THE LITTLE LAMBS. AREN'T THEY CUTE? >> I LOVE THAT. SO THE DIMENSION IS JUST WONDERFUL IN THIS. >> THERE'S A LOT OF APPLIQUE AND EMBROIDERY. AND THEN WE HAVE-- >> LOOK AT THE BACK. >> [LAUGHS] THERE'S A FEW THINGS ON THE BACK, TOO. >> I THINK I'D WEAR IT BACKWARDS. >> WELL, YOU KNOW, THEY HAVE TO SEE YOU COMING AND GOING. >> COMING AND GOING. I LOVE IT. >> THAT'S IMPORTANT. BUT YOU CAN PUT BINDING ON THEM, YOU CAN CUT THEM UP AND DIVIDE THEM. AND IN A LITTLE WHILE, WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU SOME EASY METHODS TO GET THAT DONE. >> THIS ONE'S VERY FEMININE. I LOVE THIS. >> MORE ELEGANT. AND WE'VE GOT A DOUBLE BINDING ON IT. AND IT'S ALL DONE WITH SILK. THE APPLIQUES ARE DONE WITH SILK, AND THEN THERE'S SOME PRETTY LACE AT THE BOTTOM. AND IT'S PRETTY ON THE BACK, TOO.

[LAUGHS] >> YOU KNOW, THIS IS ONE OF

THOSE THAT WITH A PRETTY SKIRT, BROOMSTICK SKIRT, FOR INSTANCE. BUT, WOW, WHAT IT WOULD DO FOR A PAIR OF JEANS. >> IT WOULD. IT WOULD JUST DRESS UP ANYTHING YOU PUT ON. AND THEN WE'VE GOT DIMENSIONAL FLOWERS-- >> OH, LOOK AT THAT. >> AND EVERYTHING. AND SO THEY'RE JUST REALLY FUN TO DO. AND I DON'T KNOW WHY I LIKE WORKING ON THEM SO MUCH. I GOT STARTED DOING THIS-- >> OH, I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN. >> I THINK IN ABOUT 1985 I STARTED WORKING WITH SWEATSHIRTS. AND I DO KNOW HOW TO SEW, BUT IT'S A LOT OF FUN TO DO THESE. >> WELL, AND LIKE YOU SAY, LET SOMEBODY THAT MAKES A SWEATSHIRT DO ALL THAT BORING PART, THEN YOU GET TO DO THE FUN PART. OH, WOW. >> AND FINDING THE, YOU KNOW, THE PRODUCTS. >> TALK ABOUT BRIGHT. >> YEAH, THERE WE GO FOR VALENTINE'S DAY. I MEAN, YOU CAN USE IT FOR ANYTHING. AND I JUST LOVE HEARTS. AND I THINK A LOT OF LADIES LOVE HEARTS. AND SO I TRIMMED THAT ONE IN A PRETTY SILK DUPIONI AND FOUND SOME NICE HEART BUTTONS. THEN I LINED IT WITH A PRETTY PINK COTTON FABRIC. AND-- >> AND THESE ARE JUST MACHINE STITCHED ON, AREN'T THEY? >> MM-HMM. THEY ARE. THEY ARE. >> APPLIQUED ON. UH-HUH. >> THEY ARE. AND YOU CAN DO ALL KINDS OF THINGS WITH YOUR SEWING MACHINE AND EMBROIDERY MACHINE AND DECORATIVE STITCHWORK AND ALL THAT KINDS OF THINGS LIKE THAT. >> AND, YOU KNOW, SO MANY MAY BE LIKE ME. I HAVE A MACHINE THAT DOES EVERYTHING PRACTICALLY. BUT I USE--TEND TO DO THE SAME THINGS ALL THE TIME. THIS WOULD BE A WONDERFUL WAY TO EXPERIMENT WITH SOME OF THOSE STITCHES THAT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY DO. >> [LAUGHS] WE ALL HAVE THAT PROBLEM. WE TEND TO USE IT FOR ONE THING AND THEN NOT FOR ANYTHING ELSE. AND SO, BUT IT'S A LOT OF FUN DOING THAT. A LOT OF PRETTY THREADS ON THAT. >> THAT LOOKS GORGEOUS. OH, AND THIS IS CALLED STARBURST APPLIQUE. I THINK WE CAN SEE WHY. >> THAT ONE'S GOT SOME SERIOUS BLING ON THOSE BUTTONS. >> OH, THEY REALLY ARE. REALLY SHINY. >> AND I'VE GOT A LITTLE HAND-DYED FABRIC ON THE BOTTOM. AND I TOOK--MADE A BORDER OF-- CUT IT ON THE BIAS AND ADDED IT ON AND USED A LITTLE BLANKET STITCH TO STITCH IT ON. >> OH, I COULDN'T EVEN SEE THAT. YES, I SEE. >> LITTLE EXTRA BLING. A LITTLE EXTRA GOLD METALLIC THREAD. >> NOW, THESE ARE MY COLORS. I LOVE THIS. I LOVE BLACK ANYWAY. >> OH, GOSH. IT'S SO DRESSY. AND IT'S A LOT OF FUN. AND, YOU KNOW, YOU JUST PUT THE SAME DESIGN ON THERE MULTIPLE TIMES, EXCEPT THAT YOU JUST CHANGE YOUR COLORS. >> CHANGE YOUR THREAD. UH-HUH. >> AND THAT TURNS OUT REAL NICE. >> STARBURST. I CAN SEE WHY IT'S CALLED THAT. AND THIS ONE'S CALLED--OH, LET IT SNOW. OF COURSE. >> WELL, WE HAVE--WE DON'T HAVE ANY SNOW OUT THERE TODAY, BUT WE HAVE HAD IT IN THE TIMES PAST. BUT IT'S A LOT OF FUN THINGS ON THERE. AND USED WHITE QUILT BATTING ON THE SNOWMEN. AND SO THEY'RE FUZZY. AND THEN SO A LITTLE BIT OF KNITTING YARN ON THE BOTTOM. AND SOME BUTTONS. NOW, ON THAT ONE I USED PRETTY BUTTONS, BUT THEY'RE KIND OF SHARP AND POINTY. SO WHAT I DID WAS TO PUT SNAPS UNDER THERE. >> OH, I SEE. UH-HUH. >> AND THAT WAY YOU CAN USE PRETTY BUTTONS AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE BUTTONHOLES. >> OH, THAT--BUT THE LITTLE SNOWFLAKE BUTTONS ARE REALLY WHAT MAKE THIS SO CUTE. >> AND THEN WE'VE GOT SOMETHING ELSE. AND THEN-- >> LET IT SNOW. >> ON THE LITTLE SNOWMEN, I USED A PIECE OF FABRIC UNDERNEATH THERE. AND I USED PINKING SHEARS TO KEEP IT FROM RAVELING. AND I LAID IT DOWN BEFORE I DID THE SNOWMAN APPLIQUE, AND THEN BROUGHT IT AROUND AND TIED IT, SO IT'S ANOTHER DIMENSIONAL ASPECT. >> AND IT STUCK ON THERE. IT'S NOT GONNA COME UNDONE AND FALL. OH, AND I LOVE THE DIFFERENT COLORS OF GREEN. IT LOOKS REAL, DOESN'T IT? >> [LAUGHS] THANK YOU. >> VERY PRETTY. >> IT'S A LOT OF FUN. >> LET IT SNOW. >> AND THEN WE HAVE... >> NORTH WOODS FAMILY. >> NORTH WOODS. AND, YOU KNOW, THIS ONE WAS--I LOVE...I HAVE 4 SONS, AND I LOVE MOOSE. I DON'T KNOW WHY. THEY'RE PRETTY ORNERY CRITTERS. >> MOOSES. >> BUT THEY'RE JUST SO CUTE. AND SO THIS ONE'S NORTH WOODS FAMILY. AND WE'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF APPLIQUES AND THE DADDY AND THE MAMA AND THE LITTLE BABY SITTING THERE. >> OF COURSE. >> SOME PRETTY GREEN TREES. SO-- >> OH, AND LOOK AT THE BUTTONS ON THIS. TREES. JUST THE SAME THING. >> I'VE GOT TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF BUTTONS. AND THAT ONE I'VE FASTENED A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY AS WELL. >> UH-HUH. >> BECAUSE THOSE BUTTONS, YOU CERTAINLY CANNOT BUTTON THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO BIG. >> THEY'RE MORE AN EMBELLISHMENT. >> THEY ARE. AND SO... >> OH, THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL. WELL, LET'S SEE HOW TO DO THIS WITH A PURCHASED SWEATSHIRT. >> SO WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO FIRST IS WE'RE GOING TO BUY A SWEATSHIRT. >> THAT'S THIS. >> AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO TRIM AWAY ALL THE RIBBING, ALL OF THE--OFF THE SLEEVES. >> OFF THE BOTTOM. >> THAT'S A PERSONAL PREFERENCE. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO TAKE ALL THAT OFF, YOU DON'T HAVE TO. SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO LEAVE THE RIBBING ON THE NECKLINE. BUT I REALLY LIKE TO PRETTY MUCH SKIN IT. I TAKE ALL OF THAT STUFF OFF OF THERE. AND THEN SOMETIMES YOU SAVE IT AND YOU DO OTHER THINGS WITH IT. BUT I DO TAKE THEM OFF AN AWFUL LOT OF THE TIME. AND THEN YOU HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO GO AHEAD AND STABILE THEM. >> BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO CUT IT. >> MM-HMM. >> TO MAKE A JACKET OUT OF IT, OBVIOUSLY. >> WHEN YOU--WHEN YOU WORK WITH THIS, THIS IS A VERY STRETCHY PIECE. AND A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE WILL JUST CUT INTO THEIR SHIRTS AND NOT DO ANY KIND OF STABILIZING. AND WHEN WE DO THAT, WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS IT'S GONNA STRETCH. IT'S NOT GONNA GO BACK TOGETHER-- >> ONE SIDE WILL EVEN BE TALLER OR LONGER THAN THE OTHER, WON'T IT? >> RIGHT. >> OK. >> SO THIS IS A PRODUCT--THERE'S A ROLL OF IT, THAT IT COMES IN A ROLL. IT'S ABOUT 10 YARDS AND 12 INCHES WIDE. AND IT HAS A FUSIBLE ON IT. SO YOU CAN MAYBE SEE THE LITTLE SPARKLING THERE. >> UH-HUH. >> AND SO YOU'RE GONNA CUT OFF ABOUT A 30 INCH PIECE OFF OF THE ROLL. >> WHICH IS THE LENGTH. >> MM-HMM. YEAH, BECAUSE I'VE NEVER FOUND A SWEATSHIRT LONGER THAN THAT. >> OH, OK. >> SO, AND THEN WHAT YOU'RE GONNA DO IS YOU'RE GONNA CUT IT UP INTO TWO-INCH WIDE STRIPS. AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO FIND THE CENTER FRONT, AND YOU'RE GOING TO DRAW--IRON IT ON. YOU WANT HEAT, STEAM, AND PRESSURE ON THAT TO MAKE IT STAY. >> SO STEAM. >> MM-HMM. >> SOMETIMES YOU DON'T USE STEAM ON THE IRON. >> NOW THIS ONE, WHENEVER YOU DO ANY KIND OF APPLIQUE OR EMBROIDERY OR PUTTING ANYTHING ON A SWEATSHIRT, YOU WANT TO PUT A PIECE OF THIS BEHIND. >> IT STABILIZES IT, DOESN'T IT? >> AND THEN YOU'RE GONNA IRON THIS--BASE THIS ONE ON. SEE, THIS ONE JUST COMES LOOSE. >> UH-HUH. >> THIS ONE IS ON PERMANENTLY. IT'S NOT COMING OFF. >> YOU WANT IT TO STAY. >> SO WHEN YOU GET DONE, YOU LIFT IT AND YOU CUT IT AWAY. >> I SEE. SO YOU DON'T HAVE EXTRA BULK THERE? UH-HUH. >> RIGHT. SO, ALL RIGHT, AND THAT ONE'S READY TO ROLL. AND THEN THIS ONE IS OUR LAST ONE. NOW, SOMETIMES I CUT OFF THE SLEEVES, AND WHEN I DO, I WANT TO LABEL THEM BECAUSE IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. >> LEFT AND RIGHT. >> YES, AND THEY DO REALLY NEED THAT. AND THEN YOU CAN SEE ON THE INSIDE HERE, I HAVE PUT THE STABILIZER-- >> AND THAT'S WHY YOU MARKED IT, SO YOU COULD CUT DIRECTLY ON CENTER FRONT. I SEE. >> AND THEN ON THE NECKLINE, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED BECAUSE WHEN YOU CUT AWAY THAT RIBBING, WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS IT JUST KEEPS GROWING AS YOU WEAR IT. AND THEN I HAVE FOUND THAT I USE A PIECE OF CLEAR ELASTIC. AND IT IS ON THERE PERMANENTLY THERE, BUT THEN HERE, WE CAN FLIP THIS BACK. YOU CAN SEE THAT I HAVE-- >> OH, I COULDN'T EVEN SEE IT. >> RIGHT, YOU CAN'T SEE IT. BUT YOU HAVE A LITTLE LESS ELASTIC THAN YOU HAVE NECKLINE. SO SAY IF YOUR NECKLINE MEASURES LIKE 24 INCHES, THEN YOU'RE GONNA ADD IN ABOUT--YOU'RE GONNA USE ABOUT 22 INCHES OF ELASTIC. >> TAKE ABOUT TWO INCHES OFF. WELL, THAT IS A GOOD POINT BECAUSE-- >> THEY CAN GET THAT AT THEIR LOCAL STORE, TOO. >> AND YOU'VE ALREADY FINISHED. >> THAT ONE IS WHERE--SOMETIMES YOU WANT--INSTEAD OF A BINDING LIKE ON SOME OF THE JACKETS THAT I HAVE, USE A TWIN NEEDLE. AND SO I USE A 4.0 STRETCHED TWIN NEEDLE. AND THEN IT GIVES A REALLY NICE FINISH. AND IF YOU LOOK RIGHT THERE, YOU CAN BARELY SEE IT. >> MM-HMM. VERY PROFESSIONAL. >> USE A LITTLE BIT OF FUSIBLE WEB. THERE'S ABOUT A QUARTER INCH. OF COURSE, I GUESS I PUT IT ON THERE A LITTLE TOO MUCH. BUT I IRON A LITTLE QUARTER INCH OF FUSIBLE WEB TO THE WRONG SIDE RIGHT AT THE CUT EDGE, PRESS IT UP, AND IT STAYS UP THERE FOR YOU, AND THEN YOU CAN TWIN NEEDLE HEM IT REALLY NICELY AND EASILY. >> YOU STITCH IT FROM THIS SIDE. I SEE. >> ONE OF THE THINGS PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE ABOUT A TWIN NEEDLE IS THAT THEY NEED TO USE A 4 LONG STITCH LENGTH. >> 4? >> 4. IT'S LIKE A BASTING STITCH. >> UH-HUH, IT'S LONG. >> MM-HMM. AND THEN YOU WANT TO USE--IF YOU HAVE A WALKING FOOT, THAT REALLY DOES HELP. AND YOU STRADDLE THE--YOU LET MOST OF THE STITCH GO ON THE HEM, AND THE REST OF IT'S GONNA RUN RIGHT ALONG THE TOP EDGE. IT'LL GIVE YOU A REALLY GOOD LOOK. >> WELL, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THESE WERE SWEATSHIRTS WHEN THEY STARTED. BUT THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT. THANK YOU SO MUCH, CINDY. I APPRECIATE IT. >> THANK YOU. >> PAT, IT'S SO NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE. AND I'M SO GLAD THE CONCEPT OF A FAMILY DINNER, HAVING EVERYONE SITTING AROUND A TABLE AND TALKING, IS SORT OF COMING BACK INTO VOGUE. >> IT IS. AND IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT. AND NOT JUST BECAUSE OF NUTRITION AND HAVING A MEAL TOGETHER, WHICH AS A DIETICIAN, OF COURSE I WANT TO TALK ABOUT. BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING, THERE'S A SURVEY RECENTLY THAT SAID THAT 74% OF ADOLESCENTS ACTUALLY PREFER HAVING FAMILY DINNERS. AND BEYOND JUST EATING, THE BENEFITS OF FAMILY DINNERS ARE THE BONDS ARE CLOSER IN THOSE FAMILIES. KIDS GET TO TALK ABOUT THEIR DAY. >> BETTER COMMUNICATION FOR EVERYONE. >> MUCH BETTER. AND IT'S A GREAT WAY FOR PARENTS TO FIND OUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON. >> ESPECIALLY IF YOUR KIDS HAVE INVITED THEIR FRIENDS OVER. >> THAT'S EVEN BETTER. THAT'S HITTING THE JACKPOT. YES, IT IS. >> SO HOW DO WE ENTICE PEOPLE TO EAT AT HOME? BECAUSE I READ THAT ALMOST HALF OF A FAMILY'S BUDGET IS SPENT ON EATING OUT. >> IT IS. AND WHAT I WANT TO DO IS I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW TO PLAN A MEAL, BUT QUICK AND EASY WAYS TO DO IT, BECAUSE MOST OF THE SODIUM, FAT AND SUGAR THAT WE GET ARE FROM PROCESSED FOODS. SO LET'S MAKE IT AT HOME. OK, HOW TO PLAN YOUR MEAL. MY PLATE. THAT'S THE VISUAL REPRESENTATION OF THE DIETARY GUIDELINES. HALF THE PLATE SHOULD BE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, WITH SOME PROTEIN, GRAINS, AND OFTEN THE MIXED--THE MISSING MESSAGE, RATHER, IS TO ALSO INCLUDE SOME DAIRY--MILK, YOGURT, CHEESE, WHATEVER. >> AND THAT'S PROBABLY THE EASIEST VISUAL, I THINK, FOR EVERYONE. WHEN WE USED TO HAVE THE TRIANGLE, IT WAS HARDER TO UNDERSTAND. >> I LOVE IT. I THINK THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST. >> UH-HUH. >> SALADS ARE ACTUALLY A GREAT ENTREE, AND WE CAN USE SOME BAKED CHICKEN OR FISH, MAKE A WHOLE BUNCH OF GRILLED CHICKEN ON SUNDAY, AND THEN MAKE A MAIN COURSE SALAD DURING THE WEEK, SERVE THAT WITH SOME FRESH FRUIT AND A GLASS OF MILK, AND THERE'S DINNER. >> MM-HMM. >> EVERYBODY LOVES PASTA, AND KIDS LOVE BAKED MACARONI. >> OH, YEAH. >> WHEN YOU MAKE BAKED MACARONI FROM SCRATCH, YOU REALLY CUT DOWN ON THE FAT AND THE CHOLESTEROL. GARNISH IT WITH SOME VEGETABLES. SNEAK IN A FEW UNUSUAL ONES SOMETIMES. AND I ALWAYS KEEP FROZEN VEGETABLES ON HAND. IF I COOK PASTA FROM SCRATCH, I PUT THE VEGETABLES IN A COLANDER. I NEVER COOK THEM. AND THEN WHEN YOU POUR THE BOILING WATER OVER IT AND MIX IT UP WITH A LITTLE BIT OF SALT-- >> AND THE NUTRIENTS... >> THE NUTRIENTS STAY THE SAME AND THEY DON'T GET MUSHY. >> RIGHT. THAT'S A GREAT IDEA. >> THE NICE PART IS, YOU CAN ADD BEANS OR MEAT TO A PASTA DISH, HAVE A SMALL SALAD, AND A YOGURT PARFAIT. HERE WE'VE GOT SOME DRIED FRUIT WITH THE YOGURT. AND AGAIN, YOU'RE GETTING IN YOUR SERVING OF FRUIT. IT CAN BE FRESH FRUIT, DRIED FRUIT, WHATEVER WORKS. >> WOW. THAT MAKES IT EASY TO GET THE FRUIT, BECAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS COMPLAIN THAT THE HARDEST PART IS TO GET YOUR FRUIT AND VEGETABLES. >> YES. >> THAT'S A LOT. FIVE SERVINGS A DAY. >> IT IS. AND THINKING AHEAD IS WHAT'S IMPORTANT. >> PLANNING. >> MM-HMM. SO FAT IS THE NEXT CONSIDERATION. AND THIS IS THE NICE PART ABOUT MAKING THINGS AT HOME. WHETHER YOU'RE MAKING A RICE PILAF OR IF YOU'RE DOING SOME BAKING OR JUST SERVING SOME WHOLE GRAIN BREAD, THE EASIEST WAY TO CUT DOWN YOUR INTAKE OF SATURATED FAT AND CHOLESTEROL IS TO USE A SOFT SPREAD LIKE COUNTRY CROCK. THERE'S NO TRANSFATS, AND BECAUSE IT'S MADE WITH SOYBEAN OIL AND CANOLA OIL, IT'S ACTUALLY 70% LESS SATURATED FAT THAN BUTTER. >> MM-HMM. >> OLIVE OIL, CANOLA OIL, SHOULD ALWAYS BE ON THE SHELF. THESE ARE THE TWO THAT HAVE THE MOST MONO OR HEART HEALTHY-- >> HEART HEALTHY. >> SATURATED FATS. >> YOU BROUGHT UP A GOOD POINT-- WE NEED TO TAKE TIME TO READ LABELS WHEN WE'RE GOING THROUGH THE STORE, NOT JUST BUY THE COLOR OR THE BOTTLE THAT WE TEND TO ALWAYS GET. >> YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. AND JUST COMPARE A COUPLE OF BRANDS AND SEE. AVOCADOS ARE WONDERFUL. AGAIN, THEY'VE GET THOSE MONO UNSATURATED FATS. WE CAN USE GARNISHES LIKE NUTS AND SEEDS TO BRING IN MORE FIBER. THOSE HEART HEALTHY FATS, AND EVEN ADD A LITTLE BIT OF PROTEIN. >> AND WE DO NEED SOME FAT IN OUR BODIES FOR THE ORGANS TO WORK CORRECTLY. >> FAT'S A VERY IMPORTANT NUTRIENT. THE DILEMMA IS THAT MOST OF US EAT TOO MUCH AND THE WRONG KIND. >> AND THE WRONG KIND. >> SO LET'S GET THE RIGHT KIND. ALL OF THIS HAPPENS WITH JUST A LITTLE BIT OF PLANNING. >> PLANNING, MM-HMM. >> SO I LOVE TO PREPARE, AND I KNOW YOU DO, TOO. WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT MAKING HOMEMADE SOUP. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THE KEY IS TO HAVE LOTS OF CONTAINERS, FREEZER BAGS, DIFFERENT FREEZER CONTAINERS IN DIFFERENT SIZES AND SHAPES. SO YOU CAN MAKE A POT OF CHILI, A POT OF BAKED MACARONI, A LASAGNA. CUT IT INTO INDIVIDUAL PORTIONS; YOU'VE ALWAYS GOT DINNER READY TO GO. >> AND IT'S JUST AS EASY TO COOK LARGE QUANTITIES AS IT IS TO COOK FOR ONE OR TWO. >> IT IS. ON A SUNNY--RATHER A RAINY SUNDAY AFTERNOON, PUT ON A POT OF CHILI. >> OH, YEAH. >> YOU KNOW, AND YOU'RE GETTING-- >> OR BAKE YOUR CHICKEN OR WHATEVER. YOU HAVE ALL OF THAT WONDERFUL MEAT LEFT TO DO SEVERAL THINGS WITH. >> BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT TO BUY. AND THIS IS THE TICKET-- WE GO SHOPPING WHEN WE'RE HUNGRY AND WE DON'T HAVE A LIST. THIS PARTICULAR LIST ACTUALLY HAS A MAGNETIZED BACK. THIS IS WHAT I KEEP ON MY REFRIGERATOR. >> GOOD IDEA. >> SO I ALWAYS HAVE A RUNNING LIST. DO I NEED TO BUY BEANS, DO I NEED TO BUY MILK OR FRUIT. AND IT'S CATEGORIZED BY AISLES. >> THAT'S A GREAT IDEA, AND SUCH A TIME SAVER. AND IF YOU'VE WORKED ALL DAY AND YOU'RE GOING TO STOP BY THE STORE ON YOUR WAY HOME, YOU DON'T WANT TO SPEND ANY MORE TIME THAN YOU HAVE TO. >> YOU NEVER GET HALFWAY THROUGH A RECIPE AND SAY, OH, I HAVE NO BROCCOLI! >> I'VE DONE THAT, UNFORTUNATELY. >> AND THE OTHER THING IS, GET EVERYBODY ON BOARD WITH THESE MEALS. KEEP A BIG MASTER CALENDAR IN THE KITCHEN, IN THE FAMILY ROOM, SO THAT EVERYBODY KNOWS, OK, WEDNESDAY NIGHT WE'RE HAVING DINNER, SUNDAY WE'RE HAVING BRUNCH, AND BACK IT UP ON GOOGLE. PUT A GOOGLE CALENDAR ON EVERYBODY'S CELL PHONE. AND THAT WAY THEY KNOW. THEY CHECK IT IN THE MORNING, THEY CHECK IN THE AFTERNOON. AHH, THIS IS WEDNESDAY, GOT TO GET HOME FOR DINNER. >> WELL, AND WE ALL LIKE TO EAT OUT OCCASIONALLY, AND I LOVED YOUR TIP ABOUT MAKING A CONTEST OUT OF LETTING THE WHOLE FAMILY FIGURE OUT WHICH RESTAURANT HAS THE HEALTHIEST CHOICES. I LOVE THAT. >> I DO, TOO. AND THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT EATING OUT, IS MANY OF THE RESTAURANTS NOW ARE STARTING TO HAVE BETTER CHOICES. THEY HAVE THE NUTRITION INFORMATION RIGHT ON THE MENU. SO LET THE KIDS GO ONLINE AND LOOK UP A FEW OF THE RESTAURANTS. THE FAST FOOD CHAINS HAVE GOT SOME GOOD CHOICES, THE FAMILY RESTAURANTS. GET ONLINE, AS, YOU KNOW, YOU MENTIONED, HAVE A CONTEST. >> I LIKE THAT. >> IT'S FUN. >> UH-HUH, IT REALLY IS. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BRINING US UP TO DATE ON WHAT, LIKE THE MY PLATE, WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO BE CONCENTRATING ON, AND THEN SHARING SOME WAYS TO GET THERE. IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE A PLAN. >> YES. AND HAVE A PLAN. >> THANK YOU. >> SHANNON, IT'S GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE. AND WHEN YOU SAID WE WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT FABRIC PAINTING AND USING MARKERS, I THOUGHT, WELL, WE'VE DONE THAT BEFORE, BUT HASN'T IT COME A LONG WAY FROM THE FIRST FABRIC PAINTING THAT WE USED TO DO? >> OH, ABSOLUTELY. AND THESE ARE MARKERS. YOU CAN GET THEM IN FINE TIPS AND YOU CAN GET THEM IN REALLY FAT TIPS. KIDS LIKE 'EM, TOO. BUT THESE HAVE BEEN WASHED AND THE COLORS JUST AS VIVID AS THE DAY I MADE THEM. >> AND YOU DO WANT TO, AS I REMEMBER, YOU DO WANT TO WASH THE GARMENT OR THE WHATEVER YOU'RE MAKING TO GET THE SIZING OUT, IS THAT RIGHT? >> RIGHT, BUT THESE HAVE BEEN WASHED. >> SINCE YOU PAINTED THEM? >> YES. >> YEAH, AND THE COLORS HAVE REMAINED BEAUTIFUL. >> AND THE COLORS, THEY MAKE THEM--THEY TRY--I WOULD THINK THEY'D EVENTUALLY FADE A LITTLE BIT, BUT THEY HAVEN'T. I WAS QUITE PLEASED WITH THEM. >> YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER WILL OUTGROW THIS BEFORE IT FADES, I THINK.

[BOTH LAUGH] AND YOU CAN DO FREEHAND.

FIONA MAY, I GUESS. >> YEAH. YEAH, NO, I DID THESE FREEHAND. AND THIS ONE I HAD-- THIS IS JUST FOR HANNAH, I JUST WROTE HER NAME AND THEN COLORED IT IN THE WAY I FELT LIKE. YOU KNOW, 'CAUSE I JUST LIKE THE COLORS. >> I DO, TOO. AND YOU SAID HER SHOWER AND EVERYTHING WAS-- >> HER BABY SHOWER. >> BABY SHOWER WAS-- >> YEAH. NOW THIS IS NOT A STENCIL. THIS IS ONE OF THE DRAWINGS THAT I DID. AND I JUST PUT THE DRAWING ON MY LITTLE LIGHT TABLE, PUT THAT ON TOP OF IT. >> AND MADE A PATTERN. >> RIGHT. YOU JUST DRAW ON THE SURFACE. WITH THESE PENS, YOU FIND THAT ON T-SHIRT MATERIAL, IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE CONTROLLED WORK THAN THIS KIND OF CANVAS. YOU CAN JUST COLOR ON IT. YOU CAN JUST DRAW ON IT. >> THIS IS JUST MUSLIN OR SOMETHING, ISN'T IT? >> YES, YES. THESE ARE MORE OF A TWILL. >> RIGHT. >> BUT PEOPLE THAT DON'T WANT TO FREEHAND OR DON'T THINK THEY CAN, WHICH I SUGGEST THEY TRY, YOU CAN USE STENCILS. AND STENCILS WORK BEAUTIFULLY. YOU JUST DRAW--YOU JUST TRACE CAREFULLY. WITH THE T-SHIRT MATERIALLY-- >> IT'S A KNIT. >> IT'S A KNIT, AND YOU HAVE TO GO IN THE SAME DIRECTION, AND YOU JUST KEEP GOING. YOU JUST... >> OH. >> IT BLEEDS JUST A LITTLE BIT, SO IT BLENDS INTO ITSELF. >> UH-HUH. >> YOU CAN SEE THAT. WITH THE T-SHIRT MATERIAL, IT'S GOING TO PULL A LITTLE BIT. SO YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION. WITH A STENCIL, IT'S VERY EASY. JUST DRAW. >> YEAH, I WOULD LOVE THIS. 'CAUSE I DO IT ALL THE TIME. >> SEE HOW IT BLEEDS A LITTLE BIT? >> UH-HUH. >> AND WHAT I LIKE TO DO IS WHAT I CALL FEET WORK. AND I'LL GET ALL THE OUTLINES DONE, AND THEN I'LL SIT THERE IN FRONT OF THE TV, 'CAUSE I'VE LOST THE FINE ART OF JUST WATCHING TV; I HAVE TO BE DOING SOMETHING. >> DOING SOMETHING, I DO, TOO. >> SO THEN I WILL GET THIS WORK DONE. >> SO YOU DO TRACE THE NAME OR WHATEVER. >> RIGHT. AND THEN I'LL GO AND SIT THERE AND COLOR IT. >> UH-HUH. >> YOU KNOW. IT'S VERY SIMPLE. YOU CAN BLEND COLORS A LITTLE, THE COLORS DRY PRETTY FAST. SO YOU CAN'T BLEND A LOT. AND THESE COLORS, I FOUND, ARE DARKER, MORE VIVID. WHICH IS NOT A COMPLAINT, BUT MORE VIVID THAN THE COLOR. >> IT DOES, UH-HUH. >> YEAH, LIKE THE PURPLE IS DEFINITELY DARKER. >> MM-HMM. >> THIS PURPLE IS SO DARK YOU CAN HARDLY SEE IT, AND IT LOOKS THIS VERY LIGHT PURPLE. >> AND THE ORANGE IS REALLY-- ALMOST NEON. >> SEE, THIS LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE-- >> UH-HUH. >> YOU JUST HAVE TO PLAY WITH THESE FIRST, NOT TO TRUST THE COLORS. BUT THE NEONS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND VIVID AND BRIGHT. AND THESE WOULD BE WONDERFUL FOR A TEAM. SAY YOU HAVE A TEAM OF-- I COACH SOCCER KIDS. WE DID OUR OWN SHIRTS; EVERYBODY DID THEIR OWN SHIRTS, AND YOU CAN DO HATS, AND YOU CAN CUSTOM MAKE THESE AS YOU GO FROM DAY TO DAY. IT'S REALLY A LOT OF FUN. QUICK AND EASY. KIDS IN CLASS CAN USE THEM. >> AND AFTER IT'S PAINTED, YOU JUST SIMPLY LET IT SET THERE. YOU DON'T HAVE TO RUN IT THROUGH A PROCESS OR ANYTHING? >> NO, NO. >> JUST LET IT DRY COMPLETELY AND THEN WEAR IT. >> RIGHT. AND IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL. >> UH-HUH. >> RIGHT. IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL. BUT TULIP HAS MADE THESE AND THESE OTHERS THAT ARE BIG AND FAT, AND YOU CAN OUTLINE WITH PRETTY COLOR. AND THEN YOU COULD FILL IT IN WITH THE FAT ONE. >> THAT'S A GOOD IDEA, IT WOULD GO A LOT FASTER. >> RIGHT. AND YOU FIND-- WITH A LITTLE DETAIL WORK, YOU'D NEED THE FINE ONES. AND I THINK MOST PEOPLE DON'T TEND TO WANT TO GO WITH JUST THE DETAIL WORK. YOU KNOW, YOU JUST WANT BIG, FAT LETTERS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. >> YEAH. >> IT WOULD MAKE--YOU CAN MAKE ZEBRA STRIPES, MAKE A ZEBRA FOR HALLOWEEN. >> OH, SURE. OR WHATEVER, YOUR TEAM, IF IT'S A DRAGON OR SOMETHING, YOU COULD COLOR THOSE IN EASILY. >> OR FIONA PROBABLY NEEDS LADYBUGS ON EVERYTHING. >> PROBABLY. I THINK SO. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING US KIND OF WHAT'S NEW IN FABRIC PAINTING. AND THEY MAKE IMPROVEMENTS ALL THE TIME. >> AND IT MAKES IT SO EASY FOR EVERYBODY TO TRY. YOU KNOW, NOT JUST THE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY'RE CRAFTY, BUT THE PEOPLE THAT NEED TO-- >> NEVER TRIED IT. >> THEY CAN DO IT, TOO. >> UH-HUH. WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> YOU'RE VERY WELCOME. >> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY.
