Happy Monday (I can say that because I’m not working today). Crappy Monday if you’re actually working.

Happy Monday (I can say that because I’m not working today). Crappy Monday if you’re actually working.

Good news – I have something to cheer you up!

I’m super psyched to introduce a new Etsy Stalkers Interview Feature to you. I have lovingly named it (drum roll please)…Seven Minutes in Heaven With an Etsy Seller. This weekly feature will introduce you to a real-live seller on etsy. Here’s the twist (there’s always one, isn’t there)? Each seller will be asked the same seven questions – won’t it be fun to see how each one answers? It will be fun, oh yes, it will.

Without any further ado, please enjoy Seven Minutes in Heaven With Cerra’s Flower Shop!

Do you like that song, She’s Crafty by the Beastie Boys?
I’m a little bit embarrassed to admit this – but I don’t know the song. Does that take away points from my awesomeness?
Umm yes, yes it does.

What was the last thing you made?
The last thing that I made and finished were some penguin ornaments as a custom order. Right now I’m part of the way through sewing a heart fishing set.

What is the last thing you bought on etsy?
I bought a Christmas present for a friend of mine. I think all but three of the purchases that I’ve made over the last 4.5 years on Etsy have been as gifts for others.
I’ve never received a gift from you. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge.

What would it take to get you to complete all my craft projects,
quietly, and let me the credit for them? Like a ghost writer but different?

You’d need to find me a body double. I already feel that I spend too much time away from my son.
Please, who is more important, me or your son?

Do you have another job? Like one where you need to wear pants that actually button?
I don’t think so. Some people consider staying home full-time with a child a job, though, so yes?
Staying home full-time with a child is like jumping into a pot of crazy so yes, it’s a full-time gig that allows you to wear comfy pants.

Favorite article of clothing? Can I have it?
My “Brooklyn” hoodie that was purchased for me on one of my trips to NYC. And no, sorry. It is my comfort clothing and has seen more living than most people, let alone articles of clothing!
Sounds stinky – you can keep it.

How long did it take you to make your first sale? Did you feel like a loser at first?
I actually made a sale within my first week. That was back in early 2007, though, so there wasn’t a whole lot on Etsy to be lost in. Admittedly, if I go more than about a week without a sale now I start to question myself.
Made your first sale within a week? BRAG.

For extra credit: If you could go back in time (and you can’t), what would you do differently with your shop?
Maybe this will gain back the points I lost for not knowing that BBoys tune? I think I would’ve tried to take better photos from the beginning and maybe opened up a separate shop for supplies. But, the feedback and establishing myself that way by selling supplies has helped build up buyer confidence.
Extra credit points earned, but you should seriously go download She’s Crafty.

Isn’t Sarah super cool and awesome? She is. And she’s giving too – she’s giving you a 25% of coupon in her shop just by using code ETSYSTALKERS at check out. So go forth and shop!

  • Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.

    send you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

  • With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My
    blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being
    stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  • Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thanks, However I am having
    problems with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I

    and that is also happening with this article which

    compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your site in Safari,
    it looks fine however, when opening in I.E.,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick
    heads up! Apart from that, wonderful website!

  • My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong
    none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
    posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
