By Sheryl Borden: Creative Living

Information on gift making, healing a damaged metabolism and cooking with turkey will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and noon Thursday.

Whether it’s for Christmas, a birthday or any other time you need a gift, one that is handmade is always the best. Connie Moyers is going to demonstrate several gift ideas you may like to try. She is with the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service and lives in Clovis.

Catherine Carrigan is going to talk about how to heal a damaged metabolism. Her company is Total Fitness in Atlanta, Ga.

Christine Palumbo says that since turkey is a great protein, it’s a good meat to include in meals any time of the day — not just in a deli sandwich at lunch time. Palumbo is a registered dietitian and represents Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms and lives in Naperville, Ill.

Information on making a memory quilt, preparing side dish recipes and doing furniture repairs will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” at noon Tuesday and 2 p.m. Saturday.

Ever wonder what to do with old T-shirts? Nancy Lovett, sewing instructor with Ann Silva’s Bernina Sewing Center in Albuquerque, will show how to use these T-shirts to create a one-of-a-kind memory quilt.

Cookbook author Janel Franklin will share some recipes that give a new slant on side dishes, such as green beans and corn. Her company is Jan-Su Publications, and she’s from Tahoka, Texas.

Bruce Johnson, spokesman for Minwax in Upper Saddle River, N.J., will show how to make your own simple furniture repairs using the proper clamps and glues.
