Featuring: Greetings that Grow

Good afternoon dear followers!!!
A while a go I came across a really cool shop on etsy: AMomentAMemory28 where you will find prints, cards, bookmarks, journals, and many other unique eco friendly gifts made using photographs.

Meet Keira. Keira is one of the three siblings that we adopted from our local SPCA nearly 3 years ago. Keira is a very curious cat and loves to sniff and then chew on all my flowers. I captured this shot of her sneaking up on a rose that I was photographing, just as she was sniffing the petal and preparing to take a bite out of it!
I am member of EFA and $5.00 of this sale will be donated to my local SPCA @ . I will provide you with a receipt of donation after I have received your payment for this purchase. Thank you for helping the animals!

Recently, the owner of this shop, opened a second one: GreetingsthatGrow where are sold original and unique 2-in-1 plantable cards that allow you to Keep the Print and Plant the Paper™! All You have to do is add water, sunshine and ♥, then watch your paper grow!

Mini wallet shaped plantable purse cards, which would be great to give bridesmaids in a wedding or friends who come to your garden party.
The card was made using my own handmade plantable paper. This purse shaped, folded plantable card measures 3 1/2" 2 1/2".
The plantable greeting was made from a sheet of lavender paper, embedded with a garlic chive and basil seeds. When planted, the paper will grow into delicious herbs!
The card has a folded bottom that makes it able to stand up to be put on display. On the back of the greeting card, a print of my photograph "Love in any Language" is adhered, with a removable adhesive. The print is signed and titled, so you can display it or put it in an album once you remove it from the front of the card.
This seed embedded plantable purse card is wonderful, not only because it is eco friendly, but because it serves more than one purpose. You can remove and keep the photograph print, then plant the seed embedded paper and envelope, then watch your card grow into a lovely bunch of herbs.

And I'm literally in love with both!!! Let's know more about this amazing artist: Anna L. Sexton
I am a wife, mom, photographer, cat owner, and paper maker on a mission to save the world! I love plantable seed paper. I love the texture, look, quality, and earth friendly nature of it! I use plantable paper to make anything I can think up. I just can't get enough of it.

When I was a child, I was so intrigued that a mere click of a button could make time stand still, a moment could be frozen, and a memory could be made to last forever. Through the years, and with the births of each of my children, my fascination was transformed from a hobby to what I believe I was just meant to do.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have been blessed with three beautiful, lively (and very patient) daughters as well as three sibling cats that we "rescued" from our local SPCA shelter as kittens.

Want to know more about me, my life, or my work?

So, what you're waiting for???? Check her out and buy this beautiful and eco-friendly items!!!

The Net is so scary big......or not!!

Browsing my friend etsy shop I made a funny discovery!
2 amazing artist with different roots and style, made different items using the same cute material. Here, look for your self:

This is sweetirie, she make key chain fobs and gift sets and that's one of her amazing creation:

What a beautiful wristlet, so girly and sweet! This wristlet will have you sparkling with its silver glitz and glimmer as you walk down the street and turn heads! Dress forms are hot right now, so you will be sporting a hot trend and feel like a million bucks, at the same time! Weeee

This stunner is handmade with 100% heavy-duty cotton webbing in black and is accented with sparkly designer fabric with a romantic undertone. The band is big enough to slip on and off your wrist at a generous 9" in diameter or 22.9 cm long (4 1/2" on each side). It contains a split ring keychain, which is big enough to hold a large number of keys.

Key fobs are the perfect way to keep your keys organized and in plain sight! If your like me and have a hard time finding your keys hidden deep within your purse, then this is the perfect solution! You can even slip them right over your wrist, keeping them close when you are out shopping or have your hands full with a baby, bags, or other stuff.

And this is BStauffDesigns, she sells handbags and she's experiencing a tough time but this bag caught my attention:

This bag is modeled after a small evening bag from the 1950's. This bag is large enough for use as a small but practical day bag, and is brought into the 21st century by the quirky dressform fabric! This fabric is a lovely red with pictures of vintage black dresses on all over it. The fabric is also glittered to give it a special pop! This is so cute and would look great paired up with your own little black dress.

The handle is a very sturdy belting, covered in the main fabric. The bag is lined with a vintage rose cotton textile that adds a lovely touch to this feminine bag.

Bag measures 7"d x 10"w.
Do you know what I think??? I think you need to go over their shop and buy this amazing matching set!! LOL

Your can find a lots of stuff for her:

This is a fancy bird. I drew him and screenprinted him on a bright pink shirt with black ink.
• 100% combed ringspun cotton
• Perfect fit
• Set in 1x1 collar
• Tapered waist

And that's not all!! You can also find funny undies, totes and houseware.
Now, let's know some little curiosity by this seller:
I think I'm funny. I think my friends are hysterical. I like to laugh. I like to laugh at myself. I love to laugh with my friends till I cry. Life is not worth living if you are not laughing. You know when you look at something and it triggers your memory, and you start to laugh and can't stop? Then the next thing you know you look like a crazy person laughing to yourself in the middle of the grocery store? My art is inspired by those moments in life that will always make you laugh and sometimes laugh until you cry!
