I’ve been feeling excited this week after opening my Etsy shop yesterday. I wanted my pressed flower cards and real petal confetti to be available to customers that were not just local to where I live. Etsy seemed the perfect place to start selling online as it champions homemade and vintage products.
So far I am selling my pressed flower cards and individual boxes of confetti. By the end of the week I am hoping to have my 1 litre bags of confetti and gift boxes of cards available there too.
As the flower season draws to a close for this year it has made me focus on how I can make my homegrown flowers last longer than the short growing season. For me pressing flowers and drying petals for confetti has allowed me to make a piece of my garden last through those cold winter months.
Each box of confetti and card is made with a lot of love. It takes me months to make each one, starting from growing the seeds, nurturing the seedlings, transplanting and growing on the flowers, to finally choosing the perfect ones to cut and then press or dry. It is a process I love from start to finish, although there is a lot of hard work that goes into it and often a few gardening disasters along the way! I think it’s amazing that a tiny seed can become something so beautiful and my passion for this goes into every plant I grow and all the arrangements, cards and confetti I make.
