Bead Bar's bead baristas guide jewelry crafters with a wealth of bauble knowledge, provisioning projects from the amply stocked store. Students can bring their own spirited refreshments to make sessions merrier, journeying past bead-bedazzled walls and cascades of clasps to reach the workshop, where they'll discover the basics of jewelry creation during basic stringing and crimping classes (click here to view the schedule). After pupils choose one of five bracelet kits—which include a clasp, four fire-ball beads, finishing beads, wire, wire guards, and a strand of firepolish beads—instructors model foundational stringing techniques and imbue new crafters with a sense of symmetry and color combinations. Bracelet makers learn how to highlight feature beads and artfully select accent beads, then take an oath to use filler beads only for fighting crimes of bare-wristedness. To bring closure to both classes and adornments, the staff imparts advice on selecting clasps to make sure bracelets can't leave wrists or ankles without asking permission first.
After eight years of commercial and construction cleaning, Jimmie Jones decided to found his own business so that he could spend more time with his wife. They now happily spend their days together, traveling out to clients' homes and sudsing windowpanes inside and out as a team. Intent on scrubbing windows until they have fewer spots than a spray-painted dalmatian, the Joneses use biodegradable soaps that cling to dirt, extracting it from the surface. Then the duo runs Australian-imported Wagtail squeegees along the glass surface, extracting layers of grime and leaving behind an iridescent pane. Beyond cleaning the windows, the biodegradable cleaning products have significantly less impact on houses' landscaping.
Dust is relentless. Whether a house's baseboards or under an office's conference table, no environment can quell its endless invasions. Luckily, the crew at Magnifi-Scent Cleaning Company is just as unforgiving, sending its bonded and insured professionals to both residential and commercial sites equipped with environmentally friendly cleaning products and their own set of strict cleaning standards. As part of their methodical mission, the cleaners also follow lengthy, room-specific checklists, making sure to thoroughly wipe down everything from the kitchen's microwave to the bedroom nightstand's microwave.

When the Smiths pulled up their roots in British Columbia and moved to Arizona, they brought their love of agriculture with them. But they started small?just growing English cucumbers in a greenhouse. Today, the family-run farm has hugely expanded, and 95% of their "veganic", organically-grown produce is distributed in-state.
Year-round, the greenhouses give shelter to a wide variety of vegetables, including micro-greens, herbs, lettuces, kale, beets, carrots, onions, cucumbers, eggplants, and tomatoes. Depending on the season, FarmBoxes are packed with the customer's choice of assorted locally-grown produce that is freshly harvested from the earth, plucked from a shrub, or stolen from a wood nymph that very week.
