At Pure Light, the candle-making process entails an elegant journey through four simple steps. Start with one of more than two dozen distinct aromas, and then select a mold that best supports your scented story, such as a star, a flower, or a pre-rhinoplasty sphinx. Clients can then add in a few of the 50-plus embellishments offered by Pure Light, with accessories including moons and dragonflies. In the fourth and final step, guests will blend in a chunk of their favorite color to effectively bring out the shade of the wick's eye. Choose either a 13 oz. candle ($23) or a 16 oz. candle ($26), applying the remaining value of this Groupon to embellishments, ranging from small wax items ($0.50 each) to the assortment of fine tokens ($2–$7).
For over 30 years, 3 Day Blinds' technicians have sift through samples and unreel measuring tapes during in-home consultations, custom-fitting abodes with blinds, shutters, and shades. They handcraft and cut treatments such as faux wood blinds, vertical blinds, and flexcell honeycomb blinds that reduce light and are energy efficient. As they tailor-make each order, the staffers dress windows of all shapes and sizes, from an arch above a doorway to a misshapen wormhole in the attic. All of 3 Day Blinds’ products come with a limited lifetime warranty. After clients have made a selection, the team shows up just two days later to install the new window dressings or let customers do it themselves.
FastFrame’s skilled framers customize borders for an array of wall-worthy pieces. Selecting from an extensive inventory of materials, they craft frames to showcase original artwork or to endow special photographs with a dignified display. Their carefully curated conservation materials prevent works of art from fading and prevent their subjects from sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. But the framesmiths don't limit themselves to two dimensions—sports memorabilia, kids’ artwork, and other three-dimensional objects find artistic preservation within shadowboxes. They even transform flat-screen TVs into customized, framed works of art by installing a VisionArt feature, which transmits the still image of a painting, family portrait, or favorite infomercial onto idle screens.:m]]

When other little girls were playing with their dolls, interior designer Nadine Kash was busy retrofitting dollhouses with custom furniture pieces and throw pillows. That early passion for transforming living spaces has turned into a career that’s already spanned 16 years, fueled by what Nadine describes as her ability to “see the potential in flawed spaces.” Whether it’s something as simple as dressing up bland windows or as complex as transforming a blank canvas into a finished room, she can create a livable style that blends seamlessly with the client’s personal sensibilities. Her designs can also save money by incorporating existing pieces, and she can expedite the sale of a home by assisting real-estate agents with stylized staging, in which refreshments are dramatically served in slow motion.
