Kelsey Ryder aka the hello happy plants girl! She lives in Orlando, FL and makes things that make her (and hopefully a bunch of other people) happy, into planters. This is all still pretty new to her but she made her first mold for a planter just 9 months ago and the ideas keep coming and the public keeps wanting!
“I’d say about 85% of my planter inspiration comes flying at me in gas stations. It’s funny (and at this point, probably a little annoying for my friends/boyfriend) but I feel like my brain is constantly trying to make planters out of things I see throughout my day. I took out our trash one day about a month ago and the trash looked so cool the way it was laying in there. I was like “boo boo!! I’m gonna make a bag of trash into a planter!!” All in all, life is really rad right now. I get to use my hands to make things, grow/share my plants with other humans and talk to my dog, eat snacks and watch some pretty questionable tv shows all day while we do all that other stuff.”
