Unique handmade favors & gifts for memorable events

York Beach, Maine

Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    To everyone who ordered the Acts of Kindness calendar by 11/22 and have not received it yet, they will be shipping tomorrow with overnight/express shipping so that you have by the first as promised. I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. I received and unexpectedly large amount of orders this year and despite my very best efforts, I couldn't finish all of them in the timeframe I initially hoped. Had I not done it this way, I would have been forced to cancel many orders. So, thank you again for your patience. I love this product and couldn't bring myself to turn anyone down but will ensure I have extra help next year. I'm so excited for everyone to spend their December having fun and doing kind things. Check back in the future for non-holiday kindness products. FOR THOSE WHO ORDERED 11/23 and after- I reached out to you via messages already but want to make sure you understand that I am making and shipping these in order of the time they were ordered . I am going as fast as I can and have a couple of people helping me. I will get yours into the mail asap and they will ship priority 2-4 days. If you want to pay to upgrade to overnight shipping, send me a message. Thank you for your patience and understanding. ~Kerrie

**Due to a high volume of orders, all orders will be shipped out on a "Date Needed By" basis. Please make sure to specify this date in "note to seller" during checkout. I will make sure that you have your order by the specified date (as soon as 48 hrs but a couple of weeks is great if you can accommodate that lead time). Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. For those of you who have flexible timeframes, thank you in advance for being patient in receiving your order. I try my best to accommodate every order and many are for funerals which don't allow for any lead time. Please know that if you order early and are able to be flexible on the needed by date, you are providing me the time to make something for someone's loved one who has passed.

Original Designs and Product Ideas Created at Blossoming Gifts. If you would like an entirely customized packet design, I would love to make one for you- for any occasion or purpose. Please include info in the checkout process and send me a message with any photos you think may be helpful. (Helpful info for forget-me-not packets- favorite colors, things he/she loves, general style, favorite musicians/songs, favorite places to be, hobbies, quotes, lyrics, a poem, anything at all that you think would serve as good information/material/inspiration for me to grasp the essence of your loved one). $40 additional charge at this time for this service.

I've been an Etsy seller since 2009 and have been thrilled to have made and sold thousands of flower seed and bird seed packets. After taking a break for several years I am thrilled to be back! (New shop opened 10/16. Please bear with me as I add new products/designs. Feel free to send me a message for customized seed packets and bulk/wholesale pricing- for businesses and venues). Whether you are looking for a touching memorial/funeral/wake/Celebration of Life gift, marketing materials, or a wedding or shower favor, I'm sure I can create a blossoming gift/memory that you will love!

About SeedandStory

Sales 5,046
On Etsy since 2016

Hello! My name is Kerrie and I am the mama of 2 sweet little girls (and a third on the way!). 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 losses in my 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.
