what a fun day

Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in the demonstration today. I met a lot of interesting and friendly folks!

I used found logs (from my parent's wood pile - thanks!) as a base to create an alternative to a traditional Christmas tree. I applied cages of floral foam to them and layered on the plants and flowers. The mosses, bird nests and wasp nests added an extra-naturalistic vibe.

e.a.s.t. 2009 program: wednesday at 1pm

Hey! Stop on by my East Austin Studio Tour Program this Wednesday the 18th at 1pm where I will be creating a living sculpture with locally grown succulents and plants, sustainably grown flowers, and hand-gathered mosses and bird nests.

I'll do an hour-long, free demonstration outside Studio 512, an architecture studio at 1902 E. 11th St., which is also showing the pastel work of Christopher Alan Cody Blair during the weekends of the EAST.

Eat lunch at Primizie, grab a coffee at Progress, and then come be inspired!

You can find more details at the EAST website under programs. Click on Using Local Ingredients to Create Floral Art.

hope farmer's market

I had so much fun today setting up at the HOPE Farmer's Market at E. 5th and Waller. The turnout was good, and I sold a couple of arrangements! I really like all the other vendors, and I'll be buying some yummy fresh ingredients and prepared food next week.

i'm goin' east

I'll be selling some fun little arrangements at the HOPE Farmer's Market tomorrow. Recycled canning jars filled with locally grown succulents and geranium, sustainably grown tulips, and hand-gathered moss from the Southeast US. Come out and see me from 11-3. There are tons of great vendors with produce, meat, plants and crafty goods. Stop by just to see the smoothies whirred up by human bike-power!

Wonderful poster by Kevin Munoz.

yummy white and butter yellow

A very lovely white and butter yellow wedding, with pool blue ribbon. Can you tell I loved the cake?

I can't wait to see how the images of this hanging votive and orchid piece turn out after the sun went down. I hope it made the whole room all glowy and romantic.
