Creative Expressions Art Studio helps people flex their creativity with group painting classes for adults and children held in a spacious studio. In each class, budding artists work to recreate a famous or themed painting with the help of a talented instructor. Adults aged 21 or older can also bring along their favorite alcoholic beverage to sip while painting. The studio often hosts themed nights for ladies and couples.
He Loves Me Not, 11-year-old Susan Boyd was assembling them into floral bouquets for her grandmother’s, a national flower-show judge. Gifted with years of experience and a knack for eye-pleasing designs, Susan started lining her walls with a variety of awards for her arrangements, ranking as a top floral designer in the United States and winning the FTD America’s Cup Design competition twice. She opened Poseys 'N' Partys Florist in 1978, and she continues to stock the shop’s shelves with her signature lush, freshly cut floral designs alongside exotic plants and gift baskets. She also arranges custom arrangements for myriad special events, including weddings, communions, and public apologies for accidentally disabling your entire block’s cable service.
Somewhere in Oregon every November, a flatbed truck trundles down the lone dirt road past row upon row of fir trees. Every mile or so, one of a team of winter-weather lumberjacks jumps down from the cab of the truck and gets to work cutting and piling eight-foot firs. That's when a duo of choppers circles the man-made forest, air-lifting each tree and dropping them off near the truck where they're bundled and loaded for the long drive back to Texas.
For the Bell and Lane families, this annual excursion is a Christmas tradition. For 12 years, the two families have made the trek out to the Pacific Northwest. There, they set to work harvesting Douglas, Frasier, Grand, and Noble Firs in an effort to outfit homes with yuletide cheer and reduce the number of hiding places for D. B. Cooper.

Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
