"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

Never received this item. Seller is refusing to refund my money. There was a postal issue that is not my responsibility. Apparently, postal issues are a common occurence with this shop based on other reviews. Seller closed the case I opened against her because the shipping info has been updated to "delivered", but who knows where the package ended up. I now have to dispute with my credit card and scramble to find new favors by this weekend. Stay away from this shop unless you want a big headache and terrible business practices.

Order was shipped to the address submitted at check out via Etsy Shipping Labels and was scheduled to deliver 9/20 but was marked on tracking as undeliverable. When I called the customer's post office this morning, I was told that the customer had moved and there was a forwarding address on file within the same zip code, so the order would be forwarded 9/21 and has since been marked delivered. Customer said she hasn't moved so I encouraged her to contact her post office to clear up this issue on their end since they said they couldn't discuss it with me. Etsy closed the case because the package had been marked delivered. It is not in my power to slower Etsy cases, it is at the site's discretion to do so. Though I understand the frustration, sellers shouldn't be responsible for USPS error or incorrect addresses.

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!
