First Birthday Extravaganza Giveaway:: Cerra


Winner:: Jessie, comment #18

Cerra is a full-time homemaker, part-time university student and entrepreneur who started crafting as a young girl and hasn't stopped since. She joined, and starting selling on, Etsy in 2007, originally selling only her postcards, then expanding to coasters, magnets, supplies and other miscellaneous goods before finding her true passion.

She began doing linocuts during junior high thanks to an amazing art teacher who encouraged her during a pretty dark time in her life. All of her linocut prints are limited edition runs, with the blocks being destroyed after less than a hundred prints are hand-pulled.

Bitten by the photography bug in the mid-1990s, her postcards were designed, some years later, in response to a need for non-generic tourist cards. She has them professionally printed for durability and clarity.

Her felt products, which originally started as toys for her son and gifts to others, are hand-sewn from eco-felt. This means that you reduce your environmental impact while supporting an independent business.

The feelings that came from creating have been a reliable source of comfort to Cerra throughout the years - something she hopes to pass onto her son by leading through example. Cerra is generously giving away an unframed lino print, fantastic magnetic fish and a set of four seasonal postcards to a lucky winner during Market Mommy’s First Birthday Extravaganza!
