I just took some shots of the roses I'm working on for The Artisan Market, and thought I'd share...

Oh, and don't forget that once the Robot In Bloom Facebook page reaches 150 "likes" (formerly "fans"), I'll pick one of you to win 6 of these classy blooms!

You may now continue your Thursday.

Artisan Market, VIDA, and Earth Day (or Boldly Going Where No Robot In Bloom Has Gone Before!)

Guys, I'm soooo excited!

The awesome ladies of VIDA Events and Marketing have asked me to participate in a new art and craft event in Houston - the Artisan Market!

VIDA is the up-and-coming marketing team of Carmen Fraser and Brenda Boral. One of the thing I love about their philosophy is that they not only want small business to thrive, but they also seek to do it in an eco-friendly way! They recommend going green for the environment AND for cost-saving measures like reducing the amount of paper your business uses. For example, you can fax a document to the client's computer instead of printing and then faxing. Easy, right?

Anyway, the Artisan Market will be my very first craft show-type thingy and I have a LOT to figure out...

The outdoor market is Saturday, May 22 from 11:00am to 4:00pm at 1740 Sunset Blvd. in Houston (West University area). There will be all sorts of artists and crafters and plenty unique, beautiful things to buy.

So, for the next month, I'm going to be making more flowers than you can shake a stick at, getting banners printed, buying a really big table, and generally spazzing out -

Wish me luck!

Or, better yet, come by and see me in action at the Artisan Market!

Paper Wedding Bouquets (or Here Comes The Unique Bride!)

I just posted two posh paper bouquets on my Etsy page today.

I'm a little sad, though... I really love both of these bouquets and I'm gonna be sad to see them go.

I know, though, they'll go to a good home. They'll go home with someone who loves them just as much - or more - than I do. They'll likely be going home with a like-minded individual, someone who is interested in straddling the line between offbeat and classic. Someone who's a little nostalgia-driven and wants their wedding memories to last more than just one day. Someone with a penchant toward creation and artistry...

But hopefully not too like-minded - I'd hate to know that anyone else on this planet has accidentally put their deodorant in the fridge as often as I have.

Oh, hey! Don't forget about RIB's Mother's Day special!

Mother's Day (or Yo Momma's So Great, She's Better Than That Wall In China!)

Calling all kids! Mother's Day is only a month away!

Not to worry, though... Robot In Bloom is here to help.

The robots have done a little canvassing of the people and found that moms love nothing more than having something lovely to look at while simultaneously not having to lift a finger to care for it.

This is where Robot In Bloom comes in:

Paper orchids!!!

These flowers are beautiful, durable, hand-painted, and highly customizable.

Also, the best part is that they last!
If your mom has a "brown thumb" like mine does (which she also passed down to me - hi, mom!), she'll probably appreciate the low-to-no maintenence of these beautiful blooms.

The stems can be shipped directly to your mother, if you choose. Also, you can opt to have a pretty little message card sent inside the box with a message from you!

And, because we here at Robot In Bloom want you to earn extra mom-hugs for getting a great deal, if you order your mom's stem of three orchid blooms before Saturday, May 1, 2010, you will receive 20% off your total (before shipping). At risk of sounding like an infomercial - that's over $7 in savings!

Regular price - $36.00
Mother's Day special - $28.80
shipping - $11.00

To order, please email me with the subject line "Mother's Day Orchids".

I'm willing to work with you to make sure you get the color(s) you want. Call me, send me pictures, email me, whatever you need to do - we'll get your mom the look she loves!

Unveiled - Bridal Style Revealed (or Kind Of A Big Deal!)

Oh, to have been in attendance at this lovely bridal show... I would have been in style heaven!

I mentioned in my last post that I was hired to design some posh florals for a swanky LA bridal show, right?

Well, here it is!

Unveiled 023

The event is called Unveiled - Bridal Style Revealed and it looks fabulous! I wish I could have been there in person. They have some of the most sought-after wedding and event planners in attendance - it's almost enough to make me get divorced and remarry Josh all over again!

Unveiled 015

The amazing folks over at Classic Party Rentals hired me to help provide decor for their display tent. The tent also featured the event resource services of The Bridal Bar.

Unveiled 006

I really like that they chose a mix of my paper creations as well as fresh flowers. The great thing about my flowers, though, is that Classic Party Rentals can use them again if they need them for individual place settings, scattering across a large banquet table, or another floating tent display!

I'm so honored to have been a part of that gorgeous booth at such a luxurious event...
