"The colors were perfect, exactly as I imagined them to be for the baby shower! The pea pods were a huge hit, all were anxious to put them in their gardens. Shipping was quick and on time. I would highly recommend them as a beautiful and unique party favor!" Lisa

"The Seed Bombs have been such a hit with the people to whom I've shown and given them! I put one in a clear jar without dirt so I would be able to watch the sprouts grown and there are at least around 10 individual seeds starting to grow out of the one Seed Bomb! Such a great product!!!" Andrea

Even though there were some issues with the post office getting the product to me, which was not the sellers fault at all, the seller was THE BEST at making sure I had my product on time!

Very disappointed in the service provided. It took almost a month to receive and I didn't receive in time for the event I purchased them for. The tracking info provided indicated the post office had not received the package when stated. Don't know where the problem was, but there was poor follow up.

I can't speak to why USPS did not scan your package until it was delivered, however it was delivered in a timely manner from its ship date. The product was marked "Made to Order and ready to ship in 2-3 weeks" in the listing, information that I messaged you about immediately upon order and I wasn't made aware of your abbreviated timeline until the day before your event, which was a Sunday and I couldn't have posted a replacement no matter what. I'm very sorry that they arrived only 2 hours before your event, however since your order shipped on time and delivered on time, and since the listing stated the production time and, in addition to that I reminded you of the production time in case you missed it, I simply couldn't have avoided this outcome. I'm truly sorry to see this feedback regardless.

Thanks to everyone and their patience while I said goodbye to one of the most lovely women that I know, my Grandmother Dorothy Bruggeman. She taught me many things and her loss is felt deeply.

About

That Lady Behind Davita: Recycled Goddess

From an early age I was an environmentalist. I remember telling my mother that I was going for a walk as a child in Iowa just to get sidetracked in a park, picking up the litter and trash that others left behind. My interest in nature and conservation really hit full speed when living in a lovely, very progressive city in Northern Michigan that had an eco-awareness that I had never witnessed before that time.

I have tried several types of artistic mediums, from sculpture all throughout high school, focusing primarily on clay, acrylic painting once college began, and I've even tried my hand at jewelry making, book binding, airbrush, drawing, floral arranging, knitting and upholstery. Though I always have a number of other creative endeavors in the works, I've stuck with making plantable seed paper throughout. It combines my love of upcycling and gardening while letting me continue to work on the event planning that I have always loved.

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Neuroscience and Psychology from Mercyhurst University (in Erie, Pennsylvania) in 2007 and had planned to pursue my Master's Degree. Thankfully, I took some time to work in the field and realized that it wasn't for me before spending another 2+ years and thousands of dollars on a career that wouldn't fulfill me.

Certain people will feel the need to create, to MAKE, and they have no choice but to surrender to it. They can try to hide it in a closet, cover it with society's and familial expectations of the "norm", but that need cannot be ignored. When I have a creative idea I HAVE to make it come true. I HAVE to make it happen.

I've had "normal" jobs. I worked as a floral arranger at a wedding centric flower shop, a server at a brewpub, at the front desk of a mall, at a cash register in the lumber department of a big box home improvement store, at a suicide prevention center and in admissions for an addiction rehabilitation center. For me, however, none of these were fulfilling. This is exactly what I wanted, no NEEDED, to do so I did it. I started treating it like my full time job and its become one.

My life has been tremendously impacted by the artistic endeavors that I've chosen to support myself with. I get such great joy doing this, working for myself, thinking up new ideas and working with brides to make their wedding dreams come true, including wedding favors.

Thanks for taking some time to learn about me and why I have chosen to do what I do!
