Giveaway from Greetings That Grow! (this giveaway is now closed)

I know I am Etsy crazy and that I get excited about most Etsy shops but I LOVE the shop Greetings That Grow! I actually like this store so much I talked my mom into ordering from this shop as soon as I got my package in the mail from Greetings That Grow.

Something that I really don't like doing is buying cards. Don't get me wrong, I love cards but spending $4 on something you read and throw away drives me crazy. The cards from Greeting That Grow turn into beautiful flowers when your done with the card. You just take the photo off the card and plant the card, isn't that cool? There are directions on the back of the card to tell how to plant them.

My favorite item I think in this shop is the seeded confetti (shredded paper). If you order really quick you could even have this to put in the bottom of Easter baskets and then the kids can plant the shred. Wouldn't kids get so excited to know they get to plant the shred and watch it grow?


This is what Greetings That Grow had to say about their shop:

When did you open your Etsy shop? I first opened up this shop and made my own paper in January of 2009, after nearly a year of researching papermaking. I found out about plantable (ie seed) paper in the spring of 2008 when I joined Etsy. I began making my greetings that grow in my photography shop on Etsy using seed paper made by a fellow Etsian, with the idea that I would learn to make my own by Jan of 2009.


I saw on your homepage there could be international restrictions, can you explain why? I have shipped internationally to @ a half dozen or so countries in the past couple years, but have to be careful b/c many countries do not want any seed items or plant related items imported--and will fine or tax the recipient or simply destroy the items. I have not yet had this happen, but have heard of it from other sellers and buyers.


I also saw you are donating part of your proceeds to Red Cross, can you tell me about that? I donate 10% of all monthly sales to the Red Cross to help Haiti. I also offer limited quantities of plantable favors for sale that are 100% donation to the Red Cross. As a mother of three young girls, it was impractical for me to go to Haiti, so this is my way of trying to help somehow.

Do you take custom orders? I always welcome custom orders.




Buy It - If you order really quick you can fill up your Easter baskets with plantable shred or send a very special card to your loved one. Also Mother's Day isn't too far away so this would be a great idea to send to mom's that love flowers.


Win It - Greetings That Grow is giving one of my readers $20 worth of items of your choice from the Etsy shop (you can get a lot for $20)! This giveaway is open to my readers in the US only.

What a great shop! We got a valentine to plant and wondered where to get something similar. I love the tulips. I like that the paper is hand made in a smoke free and pet free home. (if I should win my e-mail is in my about me page on my blog)
