Flowers & Presents [Jun. 3rd, 2008|11:18 pm]

San Francisco's Creative Cremains mixes cremated ashes and flower seeds into the paper they use to make their handmade death-announcement cards. The cards are intended for grieving friends or relatives, who can cut them into pieces and plant them to create a flowering garden memorial. Cost: $300 and up.

That's really cool. If I wasn't terrified of fire, even after death I would want to do this.

And the "Have you ever bought your wife the wrong gift"? commercial. lol

Oh, and congrats to Obama. Since I know he reads my blog... ;)

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama was on your f'list, you seem to have everyone there. ;-)

Well, that's better than the company that makes artificial diamonds from cremated remains ...

lol, that'd be seriously awesome. ;)

And yeah, I've thought that was a little strange myself. But kinda cool.

Wow, I would love to sprout as flowers when I die. Not a bad way to die at all :)

AND OBAMA FOR YO' MAMA! What an honor knowing he takes time out of his campaign to read your journal...

And flowers are awesome. I like the idea a lot.

I wouldn't mind ending up as flowers. Honestly, as long as nobody sexually molests my corpse after I'm gone, they can do pretty much whatever they want with it. That's why I"m an organ donor. I mean, who cares what happens to the body once you're no longer in it. As long as I get my 72 virgins in the afterlife I'll be happy (assuming they all look like Ashton Kutcher, of course).

LOL. Awesome. I wouldn't want my after-life sexual conquests to all look the same. Variety is way cooler. lol.

And I'm an organ donor too.

The video is funny cuz it's okay to abuse men. Wouldn't be so funny if it were a bunch of women in the emergency ward though.

Mixed with seeds and spread in a garden sounds like a pretty god idea :) I told my daughter, when I die just burn me so now I'll change it to burn me and then make me a garden :)

I imagined getting that death announcement, reading (and realizing) what I was holding and not being entirely well-pleased by the situation...

It's a really good point. All the same, coffin for me. I hate bugs, and the longer they can keep them away from me the happier I am.

Obama reads your blog? That would be neat if he did. I know MySpace has a lot of celebrities, but I didn't think LiveJournal did.

I've also heard of a woman who makes art incorporating some ashes; the piece reflects the personality/life of the person who has passed.

And can't we just be friends and not discuss politics? I know, they aren't mutually exclusive. :)

that's a cool idea. and more inexspensive than a coffin and burial. my spouse wants to be "thrown into a pine box and tossed into a hole in the ground without embalming and s**t so the worms can recycle me.". i've told him state law prohibits this. but the flower cremains might work for him.
