>> "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.
>> WELCOME TO "CREATIVE LIVING" TODAY. WE'RE GOING TO LEARN
HOW TO WEAR SCARVES, SHOW SOME NEAT STORAGE SOLUTIONS, AND
DISCUSS THE JOURNEY OF A HEALER.
ONE OF MY GUESTS TODAY IS NANCY NIX-RICE, AND SHE'S A WARDROBE
CONSULTANT AND AUTHOR.
NANCY'S GOING TO SHOW HOW TO WEAR A SCARF IN MULTIPLE WAYS.
SCARVES ARE SUCH A GREAT FASHION ACCESSORY, AND THEY'RE VERY
VERSATILE. HER BOOK IS TITLED, "LOOKING GOOD," AND SHE'S FROM
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI. ANOTHER GUEST IS BRUCE JOHNSON, AND HE'S
THE SPOKESPERSON FOR MINWAX, WHICH IS LOCATED IN UPPER
SADDLE RIVER, NEW JERSEY.
BRUCE IS GOING TO SHOW HOW TO USE DRESSER DRAWERS TO CREATE
AN UNDER-THE-BED STORAGE BIN.
THIS HOME STORAGE SOLUTION IS SO EASY AND ATTAINABLE FOR EVEN
FIRST TIME DO-IT-YOURSELFERS.
AND WE'LL BEING THE SHOW TODAY WITH DR. DANIEL MAREZ,
WHO IS A DOCTOR OF ORIENTAL MEDICINE ABOUT A BOOK
HE'S WRITTEN ON RELIEVING PAIN IN JUST 3 SECONDS. HE'S GOING
TO SHARE HIS JOURNEY FROM BEING A LICENSED OPTICIAN TO BECOMING
AN ACUPUNCTURIST.
DR. MAREZ IS FROM RATON, NEW MEXICO.
DR. MAREZ, IT'S A REAL PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU ON THE SHOW TODAY,
AND I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE
SIMPLY BECAUSE BEFORE I WENT, AND I HAVE HAD SOME TREATMENTS,
IT WAS REALLY PRETTY MUCH, UM, A MYSTERY. I WAS REALLY AFRAID
THE NEEDLES WERE GOING TO HURT.
IT'S-IT'S AN ANCIENT ART.
>> YES, IT'S BEEN AROUND SINCE THE STONE AGE, ACTUALLY,
BUT THE EXACT DATE IT STARTED, I DON'T THINK ANYBODY REALLY
KNOWS. IT'S BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME, AND RIGHT NOW,
IT'S BECOMING MORE AND MORE CREDIBLE. THE INSURANCE
COMPANIES ARE PAYING FOR IT.
THE DOCTORS AT THE MAYO CLINIC IN MINNESOTA ARE USING
ACUPUNCTURE, YES.
>> HOW DOES A PERSON BECOME TRAINED TO BE AN ACUPUNCTURIST?
>> RIGHT NOW, IT USED TO BE 2 YEARS OF SCHOOLING, AND NOW
CALIFORNIA'S PASSED A LAW WHERE IT'S 9 YEARS OF COLLEGE
TO BECOME AN ACUPUNCTURIST.
>> 9, UH-HUH. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE TYPES OF AILMENTS, PAIN
THAT ACUPUNCTURE WOULD TREAT THAT MAYBE WOULD SURPRISE US?
>> WELL, WE ALREADY KNOW HEADACHES AND NECK PAIN,
SHOULDER PAIN, HIP PAIN, BACK PAIN, BUT RIGHT NOW, I HAVE
PATIENTS THAT ARE DOING CHEMO AND RADIATION, AND THE DOCTORS
ARE JUST AMAZED THAT THEY'RE NOT LOSING THEIR HAIR,
THEY'RE NOT GETTING SICK.
>> AT WHAT POINT DO THEY TRY THE ACUPUNCTURE?
>> USUALLY THESE ARE PATIENTS OF--THEY MIGHT CALL ME, AND
THAT'S WHAT I PROBABLY RECOMMEND FOR OTHER PEOPLE, TOO,
IS IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IF AN ACUPUNCTURIST CAN HELP YOU,
JUST CALL AND ASK HIM. "I HAVE THIS, THIS, AND THIS. CAN YOU
HELP ME?" YOU'LL FIND SOMEBODY.
>> SO MAYBE BEFORE THEY STARTED THE RADIATION AND CHEMO?
>> YES. YES. AND, ACTUALLY, I DO--THERE'S A TREATMENT TO BOOST
YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM SO WHEN YOU START THE CHEMO AND RADIATION,
YOU'RE MORE PREPARED FOR IT.
>> OH, THAT'S GOOD. WHAT ABOUT SOMEONE WHO'S HAD A STROKE?
>> ACTUALLY, I JUST HAD A PATIENT WHO HAD A STROKE,
AND WHAT'S INTERESTING, AFTER THE STROKE, THE PATIENT'S BLOOD
PRESSURE IS JUST ALL OVER THE PLACE, AND THEY'RE USING ALL
THESE BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICINES, AND THEY CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO
STABILIZE IT. ONE ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT, AND NOW HIS BLOOD
PRESSURE'S 120 OVER 80.
120 OVER 80.
>> AND DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD BE TRUE OF EVERYONE? DOES IT
WORK THAT FAST ON MOST PEOPLE?
>> EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT, AND EVERY ACUPUNCTURIST IS
DIFFERENT, TOO, SO THERE MIGHT-- THEY MIGHT USE A DIFFERENT
TREATMENT FOR A STROKE, BUT ONE OF THE POINTS I USE FOR STROKE
IS RIGHT BELOW THE KNUCKLE BET--BELOW THE MIDDLE FINGER.
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT POINT TO TREAT A STROKE, PREVENT
A STROKE, AND IT'S ALSO NEAR THE NECK POINT, AND SO MANY
PEOPLE WITH STROKES HAVE NECK PROBLEMS.
>> WELL, AND I'M SURPRISED IN TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THESE
THAT IT ACTUALLY WORKS. WHAT ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE ASTHMA,
ALLERGIES?
>> WITH ASTHMA, THERE'S STRESS- INDUCED ASTHMA, COLD-INDUCED
ASTHMA, EXERCISE-INDUCED ASTHMA, ALLERGY-INDUCED ASTHMA, HEAT-
INDUCED ASTHMA. ALL OF THEM ARE DIFFERENT TREATMENT.
ALL THEM ARE A DIFFERENT MEDICINAL FORMULA, AND ALSO,
ALL OF THEM WILL HAVE DIFFERENT NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION, SO WHEN
YOU GO TO THE DOCTOR FOR ASTHMA, YOU'RE JUST GETTING TREATED FOR
ASTHMA, BUT I LOOK AT IT AS WE WANT A FINER DIAGNOSIS
FOR ASTHMA.
>> FIND OUT WHAT'S REALLY CAUSING IT.
>> YES. I RECENTLY SAW A 9-YEAR- OLD GIRL, AND SHE HAD EXERCISE-
INDUCED ASTHMA, SO SHE COULDN'T BE IN THE PLAYGROUND. SHE WAS
TAKING THE INHALER AND THE MEDICATION ALL HER LIFE.
BY FOURTH OR FIFTH TREATMENT, SHE'S OFF OF HER MEDICATION.
HER MOTHER CALLED ME ABOUT 6 MONTHS LATER, AND SHE SAID
HER DAUGHTER'S ON THE BASKETBALL TEAM.
>> WOW, THAT'S WONDERFUL.
ANOTHER SOMETHING THAT WE HEAR A LOT ABOUT IS FIBROMYALGIA.
>> FIBROMYALGIA, I JUST GO RIGHT DOWN THE LINE. WRITE DOWN YOUR
WORST PAIN. LET'S GET RID OF IT.
WHAT'S THE NEXT PAIN? LET'S GET RID OF IT. WHAT'S THE NEXT PAIN?
BUT WITH FIBROMYALGIA, I DO SEE A PATTERN, AND IT'S USUALLY FOR
OLDER WOMEN, AND A LOT OF THEM ARE A LITTLE--ABOUT 30, 40
POUNDS OVERWEIGHT.
BUT I ALWAYS LOOK FOR PATTERNS WITH EVERY CONDITION.
>> MM-HMM. SO, THAT MIGHT BE A WAY THAT WE WOULD CHOOSE
THE ACUPUNCTURE DOCTOR THAT WE'D WANT TO GO TO, IS FIND A--
INSTEAD OF BEING TREATED JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. IT CAN BE
MORE INDIVIDUALIZED, WHICH IS WHAT YOU DO.
>> ALL OF MY TREATMENTS ARE CUSTOM, AND WITH MOST
ACUPUNCTURISTS, THE TREATMENTS ARE GONNA BE CUSTOM, BUT, LIKE,
SAY, FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE ASTHMA, ASTHMA'S A LUNG PROBLEM, SO
I LOOK AT THE LUNGS. I DON'T LOOK AT THE DIAGNOSIS. I THINK,
"WHAT AFFECTING THE LUNGS?"
IS IT COLD WEATHER? IS IT THE EXERCISE? IS IT THE HOT WEATHER?
SO, DIFFERENT TREATMENTS FOR DIFFERENT CONDITIONS.
>> SO WOULD THAT MAYBE BE WHY YOU CAME UP WITH THIS BOOK
THAT YOU WROTE? SO SINCE EVERYBODY'S TREATMENT
IS SO TOTALLY DIFFERENT?
>> YES. IT WAS A NATIVE-AMERICAN NURSE WHO GOT ME INVOLVED WITH
THE BOOK. I TREATED THE TRIBAL CHIEF'S MOTHER FOR KNEE PAIN,
AND THEN I SAW HER ABOUT COUPLE WEEKS LATER, AND THE NURSE SAID
SHE HASN'T COMPLAINED OF PAIN.
SHE HASN'T TAKEN ANY PAIN MEDS.
AND SO THE NURSE SAID, "I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN THIS," SO I SAID,
"LET ME COME UP WITH SOMETHING THAT'S EASY FOR YOU TO LEARN,"
AND I--EVERY WEEK, I GET CALLS FROM NURSES OR PATIENTS,
THEY'LL SAY, "I HAD A HEADACHE.
I USE YOUR POINT, AND THE PAIN WENT AWAY." AND THEY'RE ACTING
LIKE THEY'RE SURPRISED, BUT I'M NOT SURPRISED.
>> SO ANYONE CAN USE THIS BOOK.
>> YES.
>> WHAT ABOUT WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR THINKING ABOUT
BECOMING PREGNANT?
>> I DON'T USE ACUPUNCTURE, OTHER THAN MORNING SICKNESS.
AFTER THAT, I DON'T USE ACUPUNCTURE. SO IT'S NOT
REALLY--YOU WANT TO BE SAFE.
>> AND WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THE BOOK?
>> WELL, UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO, THEY JUST DID A STUDY
FOR--ON MY BOOK AND PHONE APP, AND THEY SAID THE MARKETING
FOR THIS--FOR THESE 2 WOULD BE THE MILITARY
AND THE NATIVE-AMERICAN TRIBES.
>> NOW, WHY?
>> WITH THE MILITARY, SAY SOME GUY'S IN A FOXHOLE
IN AFGHANISTAN AND HE'S GOT A HEADACHE, WE CAN'T GIVE HIM
PAIN MEDS, BUT WE'LL BE ABLE TO, THROUGH TELEMEDICINE--OR
ACTUALLY, YOU HEARD OF TELEMEDICINE. THIS IS
TELETREATMENTS, SO YOU COULD SEND THEM THE POINTS OVER THE
PHONE ON WHERE TO PRESS TO GET RID OF HIS HEADACHE.
>> UH-HUH. OR IF THEY HAD STUDIED THE BOOK BEFORE THEY GO.
>> YES, AND WITH NATIVE AMERICANS, THEIR PHILOSOPHY IS
LIVING WITHIN NATURE, SO I THINK THEY HAVE A PROBLEM SOMETIMES
WITH MEDICATIONS AND ALL THIS, SO THEY'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
THAT'S NATURAL AND IT'S EASY TO USE AND THE RESULTS ARE INSTANT.
>> WELL, I THINK ALL OF US WOULD LIKE THAT. WE'D LIKE TO BE CURED
OF WHATEVER'S HURTING US IMMEDIATELY. WELL,
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE BOOK, AND THANK YOU AGAIN FOR
BEING HERE ON THE SHOW TODAY.
>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
>> BRUCE, IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE, AND--WE WERE
TALKING ABOUT STORAGE, AND I'M JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.
THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH STORAGE, AND I'VE SEEN ALL OF THOSE UNITS
THAT ARE--GO UNDER THE BED, AND I THOUGHT, "THAT'S A GREAT
IDEA." BUT THERE'S SOME PROBLEMS, RIGHT?
>> RIGHT. I RAISED 2 SONS, AND WE WERE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR MORE
STORAGE SPACE, AND UNDER THE BED SEEMS VERY LOGICAL, BUT THOSE
UNITS YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, SEEMS LIKE THEY WERE EITHER
VERY EXPENSIVE OR POORLY CONSTRUCTED. YOU KNOW,
PARTICLE BOARD, VENEER, THAT SORT OF THING.
>> ALMOST WHEN YOU FILL THEM FULL, YOU PULL IT OUT, AND
THE HANDLES COME OFF. YEAH.
>> SO WHEN I WAS CLEANING OUT MY CLOSET NOT TOO LONG AGO,
AND AGAIN, LOOKING AT THAT IDEA OF STORING IT UNDER THE BED,
THE IDEA OCCURRED TO ME, "WELL, WHY NOT USE DRESSER DRAWERS?"
I WAS AT A FLEA MARKET, AND I SAW A SMALL CHEST OF DRAWERS
THAT HAD WATER DAMAGE AROUND THE FEET, BUT THE DRAWERS LOOKED
FINE. AND SO I HAD THE IDEA OF TAKING A DRESSER DRAWER
AND PUTTING CASTERS UNDERNEATH, INEXPENSIVE CASTERS, SO THEY
WOULD ROLL IN AND OUT UNDERNEATH THE BED. AND SO I GOT THAT IDEA,
WANTED TO WORK WITH IT, AND I THOUGHT I'D BRING IT HERE
TODAY AND SHOW YOU HOW I DID IT.
>> OK.
>> NOW, ONE OF THE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO IS MAKE SURE THAT
IT'S A GOOD QUALITY DRAWER.
>> WELL, YOU DON'T WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY
AND ESPECIALLY THE TIME.
>> NO, NOT IF IT'S PARTICLE BOARD FALLING APART. I LIKE
THE FACT THAT THESE HAVE NICE DOVETAIL JOINTS AND IT'S SOLID
WOOD, SO IT'S GONNA HOLD TOGETHER. AND MANY TIMES, THE
HANDLES ON THE FRONT ARE IN GREAT SHAPE, AND SO IN A CASE
LIKE THIS, I WOULD LEAVE THOSE HANDLES, OR YOU COULD CHANGE IT
IF YOU NEEDED TO. BUT NOW SOMETIMES WE GOT A LITTLE BIT
OF WORK TO DO. IF YOU LOOK OVER HERE, WE GOT SCRATCHES, YEAH.
BUT WHAT I'M GONNA DO WITH THIS ONE IS I'M GONNA USE A STAIN
MARKER, AND THESE ARE GREAT BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET
A CAN OF STAIN OUT. YOU CAN JUST TAKE YOUR STAIN MARKER, RUB SOME
STAIN RIGHT OVER THAT SCRATCH.
>> THOUGH THAT LOOKS DARKER.
>> RIGHT. THEN WHEN YOU WIPE IT OFF, NOTICE IT BLENDS IN.
>> UH-HUH.
>> AND THE NICE THING ABOUT THE STAIN MARKERS IS THEY COME IN
SEVERAL DIFFERENT COLORS. IF YOU DON'T GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST
TIME, TAKE A DIFFERENT ONE, EXPERIMENT WITH IT. BUT IT'S
A GREAT WAY TO TOUCH UP THOSE SCRATCHES WITHOUT HAVING TO
REFINISH IT.
>> AND IS IT USUALLY BETTER TO START WITH--IF YOU DON'T KNOW
WHICH COLOR EXACTLY, START-- >> THE LIGHTER ONE AND WORK YOUR
WAY UP. RIGHT. AND THEN ALSO MANY TIMES, THESE ARE GONNA BE
DIRTY, AND SO WE'LL TAKE THIS ONE AND WE'RE GONNA JUST SPRAY
A LITTLE BIT OF A WOOD CLEANER.
NOW, YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT USING SOME HOMEMADE
REMEDY THAT'S ACTUALLY GONNA HURT THE FINISH.
>> YEAH. THIS IS PRETTY WOOD.
>> THIS IS A WOOD CABINET CLEANER BY MINWAX, AND IT'S
A GREAT WAY TO CLEAN IT UP.
AGAIN, WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO REFINISH IT, AND SO WE'RE GONNA
DO THAT TO.
>> THAT ALREADY LOOKS BETTER.
>> WE CAN SET THAT ONE ASIDE.
PUT THAT ONE UP THERE. NOW, ON THIS PARTICULAR ONE, YOU KNOW,
SOMETIMES YOU END UP WITH A DRAWER THAT, YOU KNOW, MAYBE
WON'T FIT UNDERNEATH YOUR BED WITH THE CASTERS ON IT, AND SO
WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO ON THIS ONE IS RATHER THAN PUT THE CASTERS
ON, WE'RE GONNA PUT ON ONE OF THESE GLIDES THAT--FURNITURE
GLIDES. THEY'RE VERY INEXPENSIVE. AND WHAT I'VE DONE
ON THIS ONE IS I'VE ALREADY PRE-DRILLED THE HOLE, AND SO
I CAN TAKE MY HAMMER AND I CAN JUST TAP THAT IN LIKE SO.
VERY EASY TO DO. YOU WOULD PUT ONE OF THESE ON EACH CORNER,
AND THEN THAT WILL ENABLE IT TO SLIDE ON YOUR CARPET
OR YOUR HARDWOOD FLOORS WITHOUT SNAGGING OR SCRATCHING. SO
THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD DO IF IT WAS--YOUR BED WASN'T VERY HIGH.
NOW, WE'RE GONNA GET TO OUR MAIN ONE OVER HERE, AND THIS IS
A LARGE DRAWER. GREAT SHAPE.
I LIKE THE WAY IT WAS BUILT.
I'M GONNA FLIP THIS ONE OVER.
>> THAT IS HEAVY DUTY AND VERY STURDY.
>> AND ON THE UNDERSIDE, WE'RE GOING TO DUPLICATE WHAT I DID
HERE ON THIS ONE. AND IN THIS CASE, WE'VE GOT A VERY THIN
BOTTOM. SO WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO ON THIS IS TAKE A PIECE OF
PLYWOOD AND I WOULD JUST TAKE ORDINARY WOODWORKER'S GLUE
AND GLUE THAT TO THE BOTTOM OF IT HERE, ALL RIGHT?
>> NOW, IF IT IS WAS--LIKE, THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE THIS IS THICKER.
>> YOU COULD PUT THE SCREWS IN, BUT IT DOESN'T REQUIRE VERY
MUCH, SO WE GLUE THAT ON THERE, AND THEN WE WILL TAKE
AN INEXPENSIVE FURNITURE CASTER AND THESE ARE VERY EASY TO WORK
WITH. I'VE GOT ONE HERE THAT JUST SCREWS ON. IN THIS CASE,
THEN, WE WOULD THEN TAKE OUR-- AGAIN, PRE-DRILL OUR HOLES,
TAKE OUR SCREWDRIVER, AND JUST SCREW THESE INTO THE BOTTOM
OF OUR PLYWOOD. 'CAUSE OUR PLYWOOD'S GONNA GIVE US MORE
STRENGTH THAN JUST PUTTING THIS RIGHT ON THE BOTTOM.
>> SO EVEN IF YOU HAD ONE LIKE THIS, IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S
A LITTLE MORE STURDY, IT WOULDN'T HURT TO GO AHEAD
AND PUT THE PLYWOOD ON IT, IF YOU'VE GOT THE ROOM.
>> YOU DO THAT ON EACH OF THE 4 CORNERS LIKE I HAVE HERE, AND
THEN YOU'VE GOT AN EASY WAY TO SLIDE IT IN AND OUT. SO WE GOT
YOUR CHOICE OF THE GLIDES OR THE CASTERS. NOW, ONE THING
I ALSO WANTED TO SHOW YOU ON THE FRONT OF THIS ONE IS THAT
SOMETIMES WE RUN INTO A CASE WHERE THIS OLD FINISH IS GETTING
DRY AND WORN OUT. WE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU CAN
CHANGE THE HARDWARE IF YOU WANT TO. IF YOU WANT TO HOLD THAT
FOR JUST A SECOND. I'M GONNA SHOW YOU ONE OF MY FAVORITE
PRODUCTS. THIS IS CALLED WIPE-ON POLY. AND YOU TAKE
THE WIPE-ON POLY IN A RAG...
>> THAT'S LIKE A FINISH.
>> IT'S LIKE A FINISH.
>> IT'S NOT A CLEANER.
>> ACTUALLY, WE'RE PUTTING A NEW OVER THE TOP OF THE EXISTING
ONE. AND THE WIPE-ON POLY DRIES QUICKLY AND GIVES YOU THAT GREAT
SHINE THAT WE ALL WANT TO SEE.
SO WE'VE GOT OUR COMBINATION OF--WE CAN TOUCH UP OUR
SCRATCHES, WE CAN PUT ON OUR WIPE-ON POLY, AND THEN, LIKE I
SAY, WE END UP WITH OUR CASTERS ON THE BOTTOM OR OUR GLIDES
TO MOVE IT IN AND OUT. WE DIDN'T SPEND MUCH MONEY AT ALL.
>> NO. JUST NEED TO HAVE THE KNOW-HOW, WHICH IS WHAT
I ALWAYS LEARN FROM YOU.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, BRUCE.
THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT.
NANCY, IT'S SO NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE, AND WHEN YOU SAID WE
WERE GOING TO DO A SEGMENT ON SCARVES, I THOUGHT, "OH, GOOD."
BECAUSE I HAVE A CLOSET FULL OF THEM, BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT,
I REALLY SORT OF HAVE A PHOBIA ABOUT THEM. I PUT THEM ON, THEY
LOOK REALLY PRETTY FOR A FEW MINUTES, AND THEN BY THE TIME
I GET TO WORK OR TO A LUNCHEON OR SOMETHING, IT'S COMING DOWN
OR APART, IT'S IN THE WAY.
SO I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
>> WELL, I HEAR THAT STORY SO MANY TIMES FROM WOMEN WHO
TELL ME THAT THEY DON'T WEAR THE SCARVES THAT THEY HAVE,
BUT THEY'RE SUCH A POWERFUL ACCESSORY IN OUR WARDROBES
FOR 2 DIFFERENT REASONS-- WELL, 3 IF YOU COUNT POLISHING
THE LOOK OF ANY OUTFIT. YOU JUST DO LOOK MORE PUT TOGETHER.
BUT A SCARF AROUND YOUR NECK REALLY TELLS EVERYONE WHO LOOKS
AT YOU, "HEY, LOOK UP HERE AT MY FACE AND NEVER MIND
MY HIPS OR MY TUMMY" OR WHATEVER CHALLENGES WE MAY BE CONCERNED
ABOUT, AND IT SEEMS THAT EVERY WOMAN HAS HER SHARE OF THOSE.
AND THEY'RE WONDERFUL FOR BRINGING TOGETHER KIND OF
UNEXPECTED COLOR COMBINATIONS AND LETTING YOU WEAR YOUR
WARDROBE IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS. FOR INSTANCE, MOST PEOPLE
WOULDN'T REALLY THINK OF PUTTING THIS BLUSH PINK JACKET OVER
A CHOCOLATE-BROWN TURTLENECK, BUT LOOK HOW RIGHT IT LOOKS
WHEN YOU INTRODUCE A SCARF THAT INCORPORATES BOTH OF THOSE
COLORS. ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT SAYS, "WOW. IT'S AN OUTFIT."
>> AND IT CAN UPDATE OUR WARDROBE WITHOUT US HAVING TO
SPEND A LOT OF MONEY.
>> OH, ABSOLUTELY. SO THE TRICK IS SIMPLY KNOWING WAYS TO WEAR
A SCARF THAT ARE NUMBER ONE-- EASY TO DO, BUT NUMBER 2--
JUST AS YOU REFERENCED, EASY TO WEAR ALL DAY, SO YOU'RE NOT
FUSSING WITH IT ALL DAY.
SO WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO SHOW YOU A FEW?
>> YES, PLEASE. I NEED THIS.
>> OK. LET'S START WITH OUR JACKET AND TURTLENECK COMBO.
AND THE EASIEST THING TO DO WITH A SCARF WHEN YOU'RE WEARING
A JACKET IS JUST TO KICK UP THE COLLAR OF THE JACKET
A LITTLE BIT IN THE BACK SO THAT YOU CAN SLIDE THE SCARF UNDER
THAT COLLAR, UNDER THE LAPEL, AND LET IT JUST HANG DOWN
THE FRONT.
THE BENEFIT OF THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR IS THAT IT BRINGS
THAT DARKER UNDERLAYER COLOR OFF ONTO THE LIGHTER JACKET
COLOR, SO NOW THE WHOLE THING LOOKS MORE INTEGRATED INSTEAD OF
KIND OF STANDING APART.
>> RIGHT. IT LOOKS LIKE IT GOES TOGETHER.
>> NOW, IF YOU'D RATHER HAVE IT INSIDE THE JACKET, YOU CAN JUST
TUCK IT INTO THE NECKLINE. THE NECKLINE OF THE JACKET NOW IS
GOING TO WEIGHT THAT AND HOLD IT IN PLACE. IT'S SIMPLY HANGING
DOWN THE FRONT WHERE IT'S GIVING YOU A NICE, STRONG VERTICAL
THAT MAKES YOUR BODY LOOK TALLER AND TALLER EQUALS SLIMMER
EVERY TIME. CAN'T BEAT THAT.
NOW, SOME PEOPLE PREFER TO HAVE THAT ANCHORED IN SOME WAY,
AND THAT'S JUST FINE, TOO.
BUT WHAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD DO IS START TO TIE A SQUARE KNOT,
WHICH IS OK, BUT A SQUARE KNOT CAUSES THE ENDS TO KIND OF WONK
OUT FUNNY RATHER THAN HANGING NICE AND STRAIGHT. WHAT'S JUST
AS EASY AND ACTUALLY LOOKS BETTER IS TO TIE JUST A PLAIN,
LOOSE OVERHAND KNOT, AND THAT'S JUST A KNOT, A REGULAR KNOT.
YOU DID NOT HAVE TO BE A GIRL SCOUT TO DO THIS. THEN YOU FEED
THE OTHER END RIGHT THROUGH THAT KNOT SO IT HANGS PARALLEL
LIKE THAT, ALMOST LIKE A GUY'S NECKTIE.
>> AND YOU CAN ADJUST THIS A BIT UP OR DOWN.
>> YOU CAN ADJUST THE KNOT A BIT UP AND DOWN, AND THAT'S A VERY
IMPORTANT POINT, BECAUSE WHERE THAT KNOT COMES TO REST ON YOUR
UPPER BODY REALLY HAS A BIG IMPACT ON HOW YOUR PROPORTIONS
LOOK. SO FOR GALS WHO ARE A LITTLE LESS ENDOWED AND
WOULDN'T MIND A LITTLE MORE VA VA VOOM, IF WE LINE THAT UP
RIGHT WITH THE FULLEST PART OF HER BUSTLINE, ALL OF A SUDDEN,
SHE LOOKS A WHOLE CUP SIZE BIGGER. ON THE OTHER HAND,
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE ALL THE VA VA VOOM THAT YOU CARE FOR,
OR IF IT'S SORT OF BEING IMPACTED BY THE PULL OF GRAVITY
AND YOU'D LIKE TO LOOK A LITTLE MORE LIFTED, YOU JUST BRING
THE KNOT UP A LITTLE HIGHER, AND IT CHANGES THE IMPACT
ALTOGETHER. WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT THAT SUCH A LITTLE DETAIL
COULD MAKE A BIG VISUAL DIFFERENCE?
>> AND WHAT A NICE WAY TO HOLD IT TOGETHER SO THAT IT'S NOT
FALLING OFF OUR SHOULDERS OR WHATEVER.
>> ABSOLUTELY. YOU CAN WEAR IT THAT WAY ALL DAY LONG.
NOW, A VARIATION ON THAT ONE, IF YOU'RE A SHORTER GAL
OR YOU'RE WEARING A SHORTER JACKET AND YOU DON'T WANT THE
TAILS OF THE SCARF HANGING OUT THE BOTTOM, YOU JUST START WITH
THE 2 ENDS TOGETHER AND TIE YOUR SAME BIG, SOFT, FLUFFY OVERHAND
KNOT, BUT JUST THROUGH BOTH LAYERS, AND IT GIVES YOU
AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LOOK.
>> IT SHORTENS IT MORE EVEN.
>> ISN'T THAT EASY? NOW, THOSE LOOK LIKE THINGS YOU COULD
HANDLE, RIGHT? WE CAN DO THIS.
ALL RIGHTY. WE SHOULD MENTION THAT ALTHOUGH THERE ARE ALL
KINDS OF SHAPES AND SIZES FOR SCARVES, BY FAR THE MOST
VERSATILE IS THE 60-INCH RECTANGLE. THESE ARE ABOUT
60 INCHES LONG AND ABOUT 15 INCHES WIDE. AND FOR EVERY SCARF
TIE THAT I DO WITH THESE, I START BY FOLDING THE SCARF
ITSELF IN APPROXIMATELY THIRDS LENGTHWISE SO THE FULLNESS
IS CONTROLLED. THAT CAUSES IT TO LOOK MORE PURPOSEFUL AS
OPPOSED TO JUST A LOT OF FABRIC FLYING EVERYWHERE. LET'S SLIP
OUR JACKET OFF, AND I'LL SHOW YOU A FEW OTHER OPTIONS WITH
THIS. ONE OF THE VERY EASIEST ONES STARTS WITH BRINGING THE 2
ENDS OF THE SCARVES TOGETHER.
YOU HAVE A LOOP ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE, YOU BRING IT AROUND YOUR
NECKLINE AND SIMPLY TUCK THE ENDS THROUGH THE LOOP. THAT'S
ANOTHER ONE THAT'S SO EASY, IT'S HARD TO EVEN IMAGINE.
>> NOW, I READ SOMEWHERE THAT THE ENDS SHOULD NOT BE EXACTLY
EVEN. IS THAT TRUE OR IS THAT A PERSONAL...
>> IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU'RE DOING. WITH THIS ONE, YOU DO
WANT THEM TO BE EVEN, BUT I'M SO GLAD YOU ASKED. WITH THE
LONGER ONES THAT WE DID BEFORE, IT'S BETTER IF THEY ARE OFFSET
BY ABOUT 2 INCHES, AND THE REASON IS WHEN THE ENDS GET DOWN
HERE IN YOUR TUMMY AREA, YOU DON'T WANT THE HARD HORIZONTAL
OF THOSE 2 ENDS AT THE SAME SPOT. BY STAGGERING THEM, NOW
THE VIEWER'S EYE IS GONNA KIND OF CLIMB THOSE STAIR STEPS AND
MOVE IN A VERTICAL DIRECTION.
SEE, YOU KNEW MORE ABOUT SCARVES THAN YOU ARE GIVING YOURSELF
CREDIT FOR.
>> I'VE READ A LOT.
>> NOW, LET ME SHOW YOU 2 OTHER FUN VARIATIONS OF THIS EASY ONE.
FOR SOME PEOPLE, THAT FIRST WAY THAT WE JUST DEMONSTRATED IT
GETS A LITTLE BULKY RIGHT UNDER THEIR CHIN, ESPECIALLY IF THEIR
NECK ISN'T VERY LONG. SO THEY'RE HAPPIER STARTING THE SAME WAY,
THE 2 ENDS TOGETHER, THE LOOP ON THIS SIDE, BUT NOW WE'RE GONNA
TURN OUR FINGERS ALMOST LIKE AND EGG BEATER AND TWIST THAT.
SO NOW THE PART THAT'S GOING AROUND YOUR NECK IS COMPACTED.
IT'S A LITTLE MORE WORK TO GET THE TAILS THROUGH THE LOOP
BECAUSE IT'S TIGHTENED, BUT NOW AGAIN, IT HAS ALMOST A BRAIDED
EFFECT. THIS IS A GREAT ONE TO WEAR AT CENTER FRONT
OR TO KICK IT OVER HERE AND WEAR IT ON THE SIDE, BUT IF
YOU'RE GOING TO WEAR IT ON THE SIDE, SNEAK UNDERNEATH WITH
A LITTLE SAFETY PIN AND ANCHOR IT.
>> I WAS GOING TO ASK, COULD WE PIN IT SOMEWHERE?
>> YOU REALLY HAVE TO. PEOPLE WHO IMAGINE THAT THERE'S A WAY
TO MAKE THAT JUST STAY ARE LIVING IN FANTASYLAND.
>> NOW, WE TOOK THE JACKET OFF.
WOULD THESE LAST 2 THAT YOU SHOWED STILL BE DOABLE
WITH A JACKET?
>> ABSOLUTELY. THEY'RE JUST A LITTLE HARDER TO TIE
WITH THE JACKET IN PLACE.
>> OH, I SEE. OK.
>> NOW LET ME SHOW YOU ONE MORE VARIATION OF THAT THROUGH-THE-
NEEDLE TECHNIQUE. STARTED THE SAME WAY. 2 ENDS, LOOP. THIS
TIME, WE'RE GOING TO BRING JUST ONE END THROUGH THE LOOP, AND
WE'RE GOING TO PULL IT UP OUT OF THE WAY, THEN WE'RE GONNA TAKE
THAT LOOP AND FLIP IT IN A FIGURE-8 TWIST. YOU CAN'T DO
THIS WRONG. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU TWIST IT TO THE LEFT OR TO
THE RIGHT. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHICH END YOU PUT THROUGH FIRST.
THEN YOU PUT THE SECOND END THROUGH THE NEW LOOP AND SMOOTH
THE WHOLE THING DOWN, AND IT GIVES YOU THIS SORT OF WOVEN
OR BRAIDED LOVER'S KNOT EFFECT THAT'S VERY SOPHISTICATED. I DO
WARN PEOPLE TO WEAR THIS ONE ONLY ON DAYS THAT YOU'RE FEELING
PARTICULARLY OUTGOING BECAUSE AT LEAST HALF A DOZEN PEOPLE
WILL STOP YOU AND DEMAND A DEMONSTRATION OF HOW YOU TIED
THAT SCARF.
>> UH-HUH.
>> OK. HAVE WE DONE ANYTHING SO FAR THAT LOOKS TOO DIFFICULT
TO MANAGE?
>> NO, AND I LIKE THESE NEW IDEAS BECAUSE I DO HAVE SEVERAL
SCARVES, BUT I JUST ALWAYS PUT OFF WEARING THEM.
>> WELL, PEOPLE DO, AND YOU WILL LOVE IT ONCE YOU GET IN THE
HABIT. LET ME SHOW YOU ONE MORE EASY SEQUENCE WITH THESE LONG
ONES. WE FOUND THE MIDPOINT OF THE SCARF. WE'RE GOING TO
START WITH THAT MIDPOINT, KIND OF RIGHT ABOUT AT YOUR ADAM'S
APPLE. THE TAILS NOW ARE HANGING DOWN THE BACK. WE'RE GOING TO
CROSS THEM IN BACK, BRING THEM BACK TO THE FRONT, AND JUST
LOOSEN THAT ENOUGH THAT IT'S COMFORTABLE, AND YOU CAN STOP
RIGHT THERE OR YOU CAN TUCK THE 2 ENDS...
>> THAT LOOKS SAFER TO ME.
>> THROUGH THE LOOP SO IT'S A LITTLE MORE ANCHORED AND
THEY'RE FALLING MORE TOWARD THE CENTER OR YOU CAN WRAP THEM
ONE MORE TIME...
>> TO GET THAT SHORTER LOOK, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.
>> AND THAT PULLS THOSE ENDS TO THE CENTER, AND AGAIN, GIVES
YOU THAT BRAIDED SORT OF EFFECT.
SO ISN'T THAT FUN? NOW LET ME UNBRAID THAT REALLY QUICKLY, AND
I'LL SHOW YOU 2 OTHER OPTIONS.
>> I NEVER KNEW THERE WAS SO MUCH TO KNOW ABOUT SCARVES.
>> WELL, AND THESE ARE ALL THE EASY ONES. YOU SEE THOSE
BOOKLETS OF 50 NIFTY WAYS TO TIE A SCARF THAT END UP WITH
THE BIG ORIGAMI BUTTERFLY ON YOUR SHOULDER THAT WILL LAST FOR
ABOUT THE TIME THAT IT TAKES YOU TO GET OUT TO YOUR CAR. THESE
ARE GREAT ALL-DAY WAYS.
>> TO WEAR TO WORK OR TO WEAR TO A LUNCHEON OR WHEREVER.
>> OR WHEREVER. TO WEAR TO A MOVIE, TO WEAR ANYWHERE YOU'RE
GOING. WE'RE GOING TO BRING ONE END OVER THE OTHER END AND NOW
UP THROUGH THE LOOP AND THEN, IF WE FLUFF THAT PIECE THAT'S
COMING THROUGH THE LOOP, NOW WE HAVE AN ASCOT EFFECT
THAT YOU CAN BUTTON INTO THE NECKLINE OF A SHIRT OR INTO THE
NECKLINE OF A JACKET OR WE CAN TAKE THOSE ENDS AND BRING THEM
THROUGH IN A SQUARE KNOT, AND NOW WE WANT THOSE ENDS
TO FLUFF OUT.
>> AND THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WHY WE ALWAYS CUT OFF
THAT TAG FIRST.
>> ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS NOT A MATTRESS. IT IS NOT A PILLOW.
IT IS FINE TO CUT OFF THE TAG, AND THIS IS ONE MORE THAT WORKS
WELL STRAIGHT AHEAD OR DARLING OFF TO THE SIDE.
>> AND MIGHT NOW EVEN HAVE TO BE PINNED BECAUSE IT'S SORT OF
BULKIER OVER THERE.
>> OR WOULD YOU SUGGEST STILL PINNING IT?
>> I'D PIN IT. YOU KNOW WHAT?
WHY SET YOURSELF UP FOR AN EXTRA CHALLENGE? SO LOTS OF EASY, FUN
THINGS TO DO WITH SCARVES.
I HOPE I'VE MADE YOU A CONVERT.
>> I'M GOING TO GO HOME AND TRY IT. I HAVE A SPECIAL SCARF THAT
GOES WITH THIS. I SHOULD'VE BROUGHT IT, AND YOU COULD'VE
PLAYED WITH IT.
>> WELL, PERFECT. NEXT TIME.
>> YOU HAVE A BOOK THAT'S JUST WONDERFUL. IT NOT ONLY INCLUDES
INFORMATION ON SCARVES, BUT LOTS OF OTHER WAYS THAT I THINK
WE WOMEN ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO LOOK GOOD, AND, OF COURSE,
THAT'S THE NAME OF THE BOOK, "LOOKING GOOD." BUT SCARVES,
JEWELRY, JEANS, LOTS OF DIFFERENT WAYS.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
>> WELL, IT WAS MY PLEASURE.
>> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE
LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL SUNFLOWER
CENTERPIECE AND DEMONSTRATE WORKING WITH PAINTED QUILT
BLOCKS. ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS IS A FLORAL DESIGNER, AND SHE'S
GOING TO SHOW HOW TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL SPRING SUNFLOWER
CENTERPIECE USING SPIDER MUMS, SAFFRON, AND, OF COURSE,
SUNFLOWERS. WE'LL ALSO TALK TO A QUILTER AND DESIGNER WHO WILL
DEMONSTRATE PAINTING QUILT BLOCKS TO CREATE A ONE-OF-A-KIND
DESIGN. SHE HAS LOTS OF FINISHED ITEMS, INCLUDING A WALL HANGING,
A FRAMED PICTURE, AND A JEAN JACKET TO ILLUSTRATE THIS
TECHNIQUE. AND IF YOU HAVEN'T WORKED WITH PAINT STICKS BEFORE,
THEY CREATE BEAUTIFUL COLORS, AND THEY'RE EASY TO WORK WITH.
BOTH OF THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT
