A couple months ago, I met up with my friend Kristina and we briefly discussed wanting to make succulent terrariums. Then BOOM, literally two days later EcoMonster in San Jose posted the details of their upcoming workshop. Too perfect. My mom wanted in as well, and this past Saturday we three along with several other crafty ladies had the pleasure of making our very own! Leandra from Licorice Landscapes was a great teacher and all the succulents were from her garden. I've never seen so many varieties. Thoey kept us fed with chocolate cupcakes and wine + nectar drinks. Not a bad way to spend one's Saturday afternoon.
That's my mom in pink. Why so serious, mom!?

I made this one!
I don't know who made this one but it cracks me up. I love it.
They plan on hosting another in December, but in the meantime, there are a ton of other workshops and events you can partake in if you find yourself in or around San Jose. Thoey's shop is located above Black Cat Collective, and though small, it's filled with handmade gifts and goodies (including my cards) so you probably won't leave empty handed.
