Lori Alison’s daughter needed a cool bag for her first day of school. Because her daughter is in a wheelchair, Lori found herself lacking any good options, so she decided to fashion one herself. She sewed together an oilcloth bag that would meet all three of her daughter’s needs: fun, funky, and functional. This experience sparked Lori’s love of oilcloth as a medium and inspired her to transform her passion project into a home business, named Tatermash Oilcloth for her daughter's nickname. Today, all Lori's pieces are in oilcloth—a printed vinyl that can easily be cleaned with a towel and soap—and they range from totes and purses to diaper bags, aprons, cosmetic bags, and bags for gathering newly tapped oil. With two shops in the area, most products are made in Tulsa and sewn directly by the Tatermash staff, allowing for easy embroidery and customized orders.
Sisters Mary Shappee and Gert Shuckhart have been taming horses for most of their lives, beginning as children in 4-H club. While Gert manages Majic Stables' office and rare bookmark collection, Mary's passion for riding keeps her in the saddle, where she teaches private and group lessons that rein in riders as young as 5 years old. A 70'x198' indoor arena allows for nighttime and fair-weather rides, and the 100'x200' outdoor area is dotted with jumps and dressage letters for tricky choreography.
PureLife Wellness Solutions' staffers dedicate themselves to helping their patients further their individual health goals, coaxing toxins from bodies, battling cellulite and stretch marks, and working to help relieve stress and discomfort with aesthetic and wellness services. After complimentary initial consultations, staffers deftly perform noninvasive body-contouring and facial treatments that aim to tighten skin and shed inches so that patrons can more easily hide behind telephone poles. IV treatments further guide patients toward health, with cocktails designed to boost energy, provide assistance to flagging immune systems, or assist with struggles with addiction, depression, and chronic fatigue.
Ed Hewett measures his experience not just in years, but also in dives—he’s plunged into American freshwater lakes and the world’s oceans more than 5,000 times. As the course director at Dive Pros, Hewett leads a team of NAUI- and PADI-certified scuba instructors and dive experts as they train students individually or in groups of up to 20 during basic and advanced open-water certification courses. Seasoned divers seeking deeper instruction can pursue Nitrox, Rescue Diver, and Instructor Trainer courses or ask for tips on how to balance beach balls on their noses underwater. Though instructors train locally, they also lead group dive trips to the cerulean waters of Cozumel, the Galápagos Islands, and Roatán—the largest of Honduras's Bay Islands. To equip divers for each plunge, the team also deals in trusted equipment by brands such as ScubaPro, Oceanic, and Bare.
While chatting on the phone with a friend, Katrina Uhls had a startling realization: her kids had been playing video games for hours. She discovered that by effectively “unplugging” her kids, she could steer them toward more creative, introspective pastimes.
Now, as the owner of Unpluggits Playstudio, she fosters a safe, welcoming space where all kids can "unplug" and explore their artistic sides. Kids will find shelves stocked with play-doh, stamps, stencils, and other craft supplies. They can don smocks and wield nontoxic paints at miniature easels. Paint’n take projects give them personalized crafts to take home, such as picture frames and piggy banks useful for saving up to buy new toys or a gold-plated piggy bank. For more active playtime pursuits, kids can gambol toward the indoor playground, which features slides, a pirate ship, and air-hockey tables.
As kids explore the 3,000-square-foot studio, parents are welcome to cruise free WiFi or monitor tykes from the snack bar, which serves freshly ground organic coffee, juices, and soda. Special workshops open the space for toddler-specific activities, adults-only craft time, and parents' nights out.
