Hello! My name is Colette I work and live in a three-story geodesic dome with a perfect view of Mount Shasta. I love to make prints, telemark ski in the winter, climb and hike in the summer. I drink super-strong coffee clouded with cream and I love carrot cake. I am a self-taught maker of all sorts of things. My sister Sue at Lulu Bug Jewelry makes my prints into silver charms. please visit her shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/lulubugjewelry

I love sleek typography. I love bright wall art. I love modern decor for pint-sized people. I love quotes, music, and inspirational sayings. What do you get when you put all of these lovely things together? Raw Art Letterpress on Etsy, of course.

If you love quotes from Dr. Suess, Winnie the Pooh, Yoda, e.e. cummings, and more, then you are sure to find a unique treasure at Sharon Colette's lovely Etsy store. Sharon makes all of the prints herself near Mount Shasta, California. Her work includes famous literary quotes, well-known quotes from children's books, inspiring lyrics from music, and quotes in a broad range of languages including German, Spanish, and Arabic.

The cost of the prints ranges from $9 to $27, making them unique, personal gifts at a great price point. My two children love Winnie the Pooh, and I recently bought a copy of the print in image number one for each of their rooms. As they pass by the bold letters each day, I hope they will remember the words of dear Winnie, "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." Sharon added in the final part of the quote, the part that I hope my children think of as they drift off to sleep each night: "And you are loved more than you know."
