DIY Cacti

My name is Marcie Helms and I am a plant killer. For as long as I can remember I have had a really hard time keeping plants alive. It’s not from a lack of trying, though, you guys—it’s because I care TOO much. I end up drowning them in love and way to much water. Our office in Atlanta is adorable and I didn’t want to introduce fake plants into the mix unless they were amazing. After being inspired by faux-flora solutions on social media (thanks, Tumblr), I decided to make some cacti.

The All Souls Procession

By Stephanie Lew, Buffalo Exchange Tucson

Every fall, the spirit of Tucson gathers for an organic experience. The All Souls Procession (November 9, 2014) invites everyone to join in celebration of loved ones past including animals and celebrities. In 1990, local Tucson artist Susan Johnson created a ritualistic performance in memory of her late father. Many artists were so touched by her performance that they joined together to continue the Procession. Now over 100,000 participants come together in the downtown area to hold signs and create artistic floats in honor of those lost. Throughout the procession, participants’ and onlookers’ faces are painted with sugar skull designs channeling the true spirit of Dia de los Muertos. Makeshift bands join together and march throughout the Procession. Participants bring drums and tambourines to play along wherever possible. Rather than a sense of sadness you might find at a funeral procession, this gathering has an aura of remembrance, gratitude and most of all, a celebration of life and lives past.
