The Friday Pug Crush 12/365 {Lelan, Good Gravy}

Hello, Good Gravy!

Crush number 12/365 on this fine Friday:)

The Crush: Lelan, Goody Gravy Designs

Lelan is not so much a party chick, but a serious paper chick. She designs stationery and paper goods with clean lines and high style. She is one of the last handcrafting paper girls and  I simply adore her and her work. Lelan is ridiculously funny, sarcastic and intelligent. I totally LOL at her blog posts. She is clever & witty. I even don't mind that one of her kids has the same name as one of my kids. {note: same kid name as my kid's name usually makes me edgy..LOL!}
I highly recommend you check out the Good Gravy girl and her beautiful work and her side splitting blog. This girl rocks:)



(additional note: Lelan is too rockstar-ish for Twitter and Facebook:)

Fascinating Lelan Trivia:

• favorite color? Pink

• favorite team? New England Patriots (hello, Tom Brady!)

• if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Candy corn, no doubt about it.

• party trend you are crushing on? Food table couture (cupcake toppers, wine labels, descriptive tent cards)

• party trend you are so over? Monochromatic, as in all pieces must match the exact same shade of one color. Too often I hear, "It needs to be pink, but not pink-pink, and not too pink, but make it pink."

• favorite aisle in the craft store? Packaging aisle. I love all those little boxes and bags.

• do you wear Uggs? No, because I would be too afraid to use them at the price I'd probably pay. I'd be the person carrying their Uggs through the snow while wearing other snow boots in order to keep my Uggs "nice."

• do you really exercise? I've self-diagnosed myself as being "allergic to exercise." I bank on good genes to keep me in decent shape, but I know eventually that account will run dry.

• minivan or non minivan driving? I appreciate all the qualities of a mini, but have no plans to ever make the leap. Friends say to me, "But what about when you need to drive the soccer team somewhere?" to which I answer: "But I don't want to drive the soccer team anywhere."

• favorite holiday? I actually enjoy the in-between days of Thanksgiving and Christmas; the celebration of family at Thanksgiving and then the excitement Christmas thereafter.

• favorite smell? Cinnamon. Hands-down.

• do you color your hair? Not *yet.* Though, my 2.5 year old will make me go prematurely gray, I'm sure.

• do you think you’re cool? I think I'm kind of funny, but I don't know if I'm "cool." But I'm okay being me, cool or not.
