Welcome to the Heehaw Saturday Edition of the Pug Crush. Lil' Buckaroo is her business name, printable cuteness is her game.

Supa Saturday Crush 55/365: Aileen, Lil' Buckaroo Designs

Aileen designs adorable, customizable printables. Super cute ideas and styles for parties, holidays, events and any other occasion you can imagine. She is witty, charming and funny. She is supportive of her peers. She is also refreshingly honest and down to Earth. Her work is fab. She is fab. Adore everything about her (except for the fact the she crushes on the Niners. Jets RULE!)
Perfect Supa Saturday crush, except for the football thing:)

Fascinating Aileen trivia:)

• favorite color?-My all time fave is purple, but it really depends on what I'm referring to. For my son's nursery-baby blue and chocolate brown combo, for a car-silver, for my wardrobe-currently black (I need the "makes me look slimmer" effect right now),for accessories black and get the picture! I have a favorite color(s) for many things!

• favorite team?-Anyone who knows me knows I am a HUGE San Francisco 49er fan! LOVE NFL football and I am CRAZY about my Niners! Watching the games are a great way for me to remember my dad-I will ALWAYS love them-no matter if they win or lose!

• if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Easy-Seared Ahi Tuna! So yummy! I used to travel every week for work and one of the best parts about it was I got to order it off the menu almost every night for dinner! And for someone who doesn't cook-that was a HUGE plus!! Oh how I miss those days......SIGH!

• party trend you are crushing on? I love all the parties that have been popping up lately that are inspired by a "commercial" theme, but are redesigned to have a custom, unique feel and look to them. And really I crush on all of the great, inspirational ideas out there that goes beyond purchasing mass produced store bought party sets. Which leads me into your next question...

• party trend you are so over? Unless I fall and hit my head and get really bad amnesia, I will always, always, alway, NOT be a fan of the store bought, mass produced party sets. I think it looks so generic. With all the other options that all of us party people offer now, I just don't see any excuse to not add some kind of personal or custom element to your party!

• favorite aisle in the craft store? This one is kind of a trick one for me because it really depends on what project is currently on my mind while I am roaming a craft store. Default aisle is probably ribbon though, but I would say it's safe to say the fabric aisles and "cute accessories" aisles are also places you are sure to find me. May I make one complaint though? Why oh why is there not a Hobby Lobby near me or anywhere in California for that matter?! I would have SO many more favorite aisles!!

• do you wear Uggs? I wish! Hopefully after Christmas I will :) Right now I have to wear fake ones!

• do you really exercise? I wish I was consistent. Another one of those-depends where my mind is at. Actually joining a gym next week (for real-great 2 year deal offered at Costco right now) so if I was answering in a month from now I would say, "Why yes! I run every day!" That is my gym "drug" of choice when I do go!

• minivan or non minivan driving? I only have 1 kid right now so I don't currently have a need, but if I end up with more, I will. My brother has 5 kids and a mini-van and let me tell you! With that many muddy cleats coming in and out all day long-I would be mini-vanning it all the way! Plus-haven't you seen the commercials where you get to hang out in the back, wearing your robe, watching TV while the kids are all in the house? Yep-that sounds real good to me, laugh!

• favorite holiday? Christmas-loved it for the all the obvious reasons, then I hated it (I struggled with infertility for 9 years so when you are trying to have a baby and can't, Christmas becomes the most dreaded holiday) and now I finally became a mom via a gestational surrogate and I am back IN LOVE with it! I can't wait to start decorating and getting all my sparkly, glittery decorations and lights up for my little guy to ooohhh and ahhhh over! HEAVEN!

• favorite smell? The smell of the smoke from campfires as I pull into Pinecrest Lake Resort-where we camped every year when I was a child and now go to with my son. The BEST!

• do you color your hair? Yes-used to because highlights were fun! Now for the OTHER reason! Grrr...I feel like I am just too young for those yet! Okay-I'm probably not too young, but I really do feel too young!

• do you think you’re cool? This will show how new I am still as a seller on Etsy. Yes, I do think I am cool-sometimes. When do I think I'm cool? Whenever I get a sale on Etsy-that causes me to go a little nuts and start doing crazy dances and strutting around the house bragging! I can't explain it (although something tells me I don't really have to here) but there is just something very COOL about a perfect stranger liking your work. When that happens-that is when I think I'm cool!
