I appreciate your help designing the packets. Your choice of design was perfect. I was delighted you were able to get them ready and delivered to me so quickly.

About

Hello! My name is Kerrie and I am a single mama with 2 sweet little girls. I have always loved to create things, especially things with sentiment and meaning. I believe that there are messages and magic around us every day, and there is no better way to celebrate than to revel in nature's beauty.

My home is always filled with fresh flowers- I feel that they are the most simple and beautiful gift/gesture. Whether a gift to another, a display of celebration, or something kind you do for yourself, you can never go wrong by adding the presence of a flower.

Although fortunate to have not yet experienced the death of a person close to me, I have experienced significant loss in life. There is great healing that happens when we lean into our grief and longing. If we can let down our resistance to the truth, gratitude and clarity will surface... and that is reflected back to us in nature.

It is my hope that with each packet made through my shop, you are graced with memories of love and joy as well as openness to the possibilities of the future. Through the flowers that bloom and the birds that flutter by or stop in for a visit, I hope you take a moment to just be and feel the love that sits in your heart.

I am truly honored to be creating these seed packets- for your loved ones who have passed, for your babies waiting to arrive, and for you and your partner as you commit to each other for eternity. Thank you for the opportunity and I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely Yours,
Kerrie

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Each packet is roughly 2.75"x5"

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders- send me a message

Is there an invoice/receipt

There is no paper invoice included unless it is requested. (So if you are ordering as a gift and would like recipient to be made aware that you are the gift giver, please let me know. I'd be happy to include a personalized note).

Wholesale availability

For repeated/regular large orders, I offer a wholesale rate- contact me for this info. I also do a donation of packets on a routine basis so please contact me if you are in need of this. I cannot honor all requests but I do at least one donation each month so please don't hesitate to reach out.

Turnaround time

Due to a high frequency of orders and frequent urgently needed orders, I ship on a "date needed by" basis. This varies from 48 hrs to a month or more and is completely dependent on what date you specify as "date needed by" in "note to seller" during checkout. In order to accommodate as many funeral orders as possible, this is the method that has proven to work best for my shop and customers. Thank you in advance if you offer a flexible/extended "date needed by"- your patience and flexibility enables me to accommodate those who have a rigid timeline.

Where do I put personalization info

All personalization must be in "note to seller" during checkout

Will I get a proof in advance

You can request a proof as a paid upgrade. Due to the high frequency of orders I need to have a strict schedule and this doesn't allow me time to wait for a Customer's proof approval without negatively impacting my production schedule. It is a paid upgrade because it impacts my schedule and takes extra time as well as delays printing and production.

Can I return packets?

If your packets are shipped as agreed upon (2 wks from order date or 2-7 days prior to date needed), I cannot offer a refund or return. Items are made especially for you and cannot be resold.
