Geekin’ Out at Drips Coffee Shop

drips9

We opened our show at Drips with a bang on Friday night.  Thanks to everyone who came out, we had a blast! This was a really fun show, very different from what we typically do.  We had a lot of fun putting together some one of kind succulent creations.  These and many many more will be at Drips in Council Bluffs through Dec 5th.  If haven’t stopped by Drips Coffee Shop, you definitely should!

drips4drips7You may recall our floppy disk planters from earlier this spring… We dressed them up a little and geeked them out a lot! A refresher, we make these out of recycled floppy disks!

Of all the succulent plantings we do, the books are always my favorite… Not my favorite to make.  That usually involves hours of slow progress and lungs full of paper dust!  Of all the books we have created, this stack of vintage children’s books has been the best!

drips6As this is a two week show, and if you have read along this blog you know that succulents needs sunlight, and lots of it! While Drips is a lot of things…. sunny enough for succulents along the brick art wall, it is not. So we put together this display complete (well not quite complete at the time of this picture… but you can get the idea!) with cheap and easy plant lights on timers.  If you love succulents but are unsure of the access to light, for about $12.00 you can have an environment that is easy for you to keep going and perfect for your favorite plants.

To try to incorporate the two shows, Mark Art and Geek Gardens, we put together a mesh of the two.  Taking prints of original Mark Art, we sealed these to our can planters and matched them with fun and funky succulents.

And for the last little glimpse at our show, I present the Sea Shell.  This giant and beautiful porcelain piece of the ’70s is one of the greatest finds of our lives!  We have waited patiently for the perfect event to showcase this beast! As of earlier today, it was still available at Drips…

drips5Overall, we are so excited to be showcased at Drips and we would love for you to check us out! Even if a succulent masterpiece is not in the cards for you, there is something there that you will find interesting and will make you laugh! Worth it, just for the view!
