Flower Children: Eight North Texans Who Make Art Out of Plants - Dallas ObserverWednesday, December 11, 2019
EXPANDMayra Martinez with flower earrings of her own creation.Mark DafoeMayra Martinez@everything.livingMayra Martinez didn’t grow up a gardener, but when plants came into her life, they seemed to her like a gift always quick to die. One day, Martinez instead realized that so many plants were still alive, and she understood how caring for them was a way to care for herself. “I feel more relaxed, more calm now,” Martinez says of her art. That peace radiates in her multidimensional work, using every part of plants from foliage to flowers, and making everything from dye to jewelry to medicine. All the plants Martinez uses in her work were born in her actual garden, which was once nothing more than a nondescript front yard. Now, it’s bursting with plants — offering Martinez lessons on patience and determination. “You may not care for them really well, but they still want to live,” she says of her flora.

EPs—Monsters (2014) and Live at the Silent Planet (2016). Alongside Cooper, “The Stampede” consists of Prettyman and drummer Ryan Usher.Photo credit: Shervin LainezAlready known in Nashville for their electric live shows, Liz Cooper & The Stampede experienced their first breakthrough in 2016 with the release of their Audiotree Live session, which has attracted over 220,000 views on YouTube, and over 1,000,000 streams on Spotify. Additionally, the band placed as one of NPR Music’s runners-up during their 2016 Tiny Desk Contest. Of the submission, NPR Music’s Benjamin Naddaff-Hafrey hailed, “‘Mountain Man’ is a catchy, simple love song written with the clarity of a good cut of Nashville country. Liz Cooper guides the song with her percussive, fingerpicked guitar and her crackling voice…a seamless balance of muted rhythmic sounds and propulsive drive that feels so good…It sounds like a car whirring past a field of trees, the light shining through.”Cooper grew up in Baltimore, MD later attending Towson University on a full athletic scholarship for golf, but after her freshmen year left to pursue a musician’s path in Nashville. It was there that she discovered her sound and singular voice through a new creative community, which includes the likes of Ron Gallo, Rayland Baxter, Okey Dokey, Erin Rae, Cage the Elephant, The Weeks, The Wild Feathers, Jamestown Revival, Desert Noises, Future Thieves and Caroline Rose.WINDOW FLOWERS TRACK LISTSleepyhead2.

Homecoming magic created in mums - Victoria AdvocateTuesday, October 10, 2017
What motivated Katie Hernandez Martinez to walk Oct. 2 for the first time after two years of battling an illness was the thought of shopping for homecoming mum supplies."God just does certain things and puts certain people in your path as they come along," said Katie's mother, Dee Hernandez, of Victoria. "My daughter got sick two years ago, and this is her first time to go to homecoming. It's a big moment for her."Sabrina Hampton, a Nursery resident, contacted Hernandez because she wanted to make the Victoria West High School sophomore's mum for free after seeing the social media video about their shopping trip."I was short on money, and it was going to cost the same to buy one pre-made," Hernandez said.When her daughter was given the finished product Wednesday, she screamed with joy at the sight of the red, black and white chevron mum, Hernandez said."She loves chevron," she said. "To me, it's awesome somebody would want to help me out. This is the highlight of her teenage years. It meant the world to me."Hampton put e...
Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
Florist Who Bragged About Entering Nancy Pelosis Office Charged - Patch.comSunday, January 17, 2021
KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php
