Spreading the love

Boy With Keyboard, print on wood made by using collaged drawings and paper

Kelly Puissegur runs Retrowhale at Etsy, a shop that’s dedicated to Ace of Hearts, a dog rescue foundation that saves dogs from being euthanized and finds loving homes for them and Heal the Bay. 10% of the proceeds from the sale of her plantable cards will go to the two charities.

Sprouts plantable cards are made from handmade, recycled paper and they are embedded with your choice of basil, chive, or wildflower seeds. Each card comes with planting instructions, an envelope, and is packaged in a 100% biodegradable clear bag. I think it’s a fantastic alternative to greeting cards, especially if the recipient is a green thumb!


Chula, her first mixed media paining in the Help series aims to help Ace of Hearts. With the sale of each painting, she will donate USD6 to the foundation. Being a dog lover, I can’t help but feel really inspired by the philosophy behind her Etsy shop: charity and eco-consciousness. Although I can’t find much information about her, she runs a blog that’s fairly new, and is part of Etsy for Animals: Artists Helping Animals.

Chula and the rest of the Help series are all sold out — congrats Kelly! 🙂
