Stephanie is one of the designers for Spaceships and Laser Beams and she answered the q&a:)

Some Stephanie fascinating trivia:

Favorite color? Black

Favorite team? I’m really not into sports. At all. I did, however, watch the Winter Olympics every day last year as they were in Canada and I was on mat leave. I fell in love with the crazy, human demolition derby that is short track speed skating, so I am going to say the Canadian National Men’s Short Track Speed Skating Relay Team.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? My grandmother’s tea biscuits warmed with butter. I’m originally from Newfoundland and tea biscuits are pretty much soul food there.

Party trend you are crushing on? I love that people are starting to put effort into boys’ parties. Just because we’re moms of boys doesn’t mean we can’t have a little style in our lives.

Party trend you are so over? It’s more of a pet peeve but I don’t like when people leave the sticks showing on their cupcake toppers. To me, it’s like looking at a visible panty line.

Favorite aisle in the craft store? Paper!

Do you wear Uggs? I have never even tried a pair on. I have always thought they’d be horribly unflattering for my body type. (Pear – Sigh)

Do you really exercise? At this point only twice a week and that’s just to try and counteract the effects of stress eating all day long. I really should make more time for myself as it has been a losing battle of late.

Minivan or non minivan driving? Non. I drive a hatchback.

Favorite holiday? I am going to cheat a little and say my son’s birthday. It’s a recent development as he’s only one. The day of his birth and his first birthday were simply the best days of my life. I cannot imagine a time when July 31st won’t be the most special day of the year.

Favorite smell? Baby shampoo. Every time Sam gets out of his bath my husband and I can’t stop sniffing his hair. At some point he’s going to realized we’re doing this and it’s going to be a problem.

Do you color your hair? Every two months since I was 16.

Do you think you’re cool? I know there was a time in my 20s when I thought I was cool. But the older I become, the more I realize that what I thought was cool wasn’t. The person I am right now isn’t cool.
