Fascinating Stephanie trivia:)

• favorite color? that's hard! I am more of a combo girl (pink & green, Navy & Orange, Grey & Yellow)

• favorite team? I am a die hard New Englander! Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins!

• if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Spaghetti with Marinara

• party trend you are crushing on? children's book themes, and using different textiles to create decor (fabric and yarn especially)

• party trend you are so over? People saying they came up with a design, when really it was yours. I am all about inspiring (that is why I blog) but give credit where credit is due, it is the "play nice" thing to do :)

• favorite aisle in the craft store? oh, do I have to chose?! paper,ribbon,fabric then craft tools.

• do you wear Uggs? Sure do! have you ever tried to be stylish in the winter when there is grey slush (not snow) on the ground? yeah not pretty.

• do you really exercise? Does chasing your kids so they do do not run in the street count?!

• minivan or non minivan driving? SUV, though I dream of a white work van with my logo on it ;)That will probably be the only van I will be rockin

• favorite holiday? do birthday's count?!

• favorite smell? Baby Powder

• do you color your hair? Did you ask this question because you heard of my hair nightmare? I usually highlight my hair. With wedding season I did not have time to get it touched up before I went to NYC for bridal market. The night before I left, i went to the drug store and bought hair dye, half hour later my hair was jet black (usually dark brown) My industry friends all did a double take! It is SO dark!!

• do you think you’re cool? Yes, until my kids are old enough to tell me I am not ;)
