Jaime's Local Love: Branded Bills

A vision for something different, one of our owners Sam, handmade a personal hat for his business at the time in South Dakota, which led to an idea. Using a utility knife, a scrap of leather, and a hand forged iron brand our first Branded Bill was created. Roughly stitched and slightly crooked the idea of representing our home state in a unique way started it all.

Messy Artists Co-op

For many artists, working out of their living rooms or basements can stunt creativity. Unfortunately, studios can get too expensive and co-working offices aren't exactly welcoming to those who need to get messy. The Creative Center of Scottsdale is a co-working space made specifically for those artists.

The Creative Center has been home to all kinds of artists and fosters a community between them, where they can work on their pieces without the confines of a traditional office space. Today, the center has a few open spaces and invites the Valley's art community to stop by and learn more.

Dr. Russell Horton: Kids and Heat

Kids are at greater risk than adults in this type of heat, especially mixed with the humidity, according to WebMD. How to protect your child from dehydration and heat illness! And what are the signs of dehydration we need to watch out for.

Protecting Your Child From Dehydration and Heat Illness

With the hot days of summer come summer sports -- baseball, tennis, football practice -- both in the neighborhood and at camp. Before you send the kids out to practice -- or just for a long day of play in the sun -- learn to protect your child against the dangers of dehydration and heat illness. WebMD turned to Albert C. Hergenroeder, professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and chief of the sports medicine clinic at Texas Children's Hospital, for answers to parents' common questions.

1. What puts my child at risk for dehydration?

The same things that put you at risk for dehydration: prolonged exposure to high temperatures, direct sun, and high humidity, without sufficient rest and fluids. The difference is that a child's body surface area makes up a much greater proportion of his overall weight than an adult's, which means children face a much greater risk of dehydration and heat-related illness.

2. What signs of dehydration should we watch for?

Early signs of dehydration include fatigue, thirst, dry lips and tongue, lack of energy, and feeling overheated. But if kids wait to drink until they feel thirsty, they're already dehydrated. Thirst doesn't really kick in until a child has lost 2% of his or her body weight as sweat.
