Serious Signature Style Week continues. Crushing on nifty 90 {Jill, Peas & Thank You's}

Kicking of the Serious Signature Style Pug Crush Series...These are the party chicks with such unique style-I can spot them from a mile away. These fine ladies have original, signature style and I am madly in love.

Crushing on the devastatingly fabulous #90: Jill, Peas & Thank You's

Jill is the paper and partyware princess behind Peas & Thank You's. Her shop is a unique and dazzling online resource for boutique partyware. Jill has extraordinary style. She is a handmade chick. Her signature designs are 3d embellished, handcrafted and they are the cutest in the universe. Nothing I adore more than handmade partyware and this lady has some serious skills. She is a detail freak. Her work is polished, exceptional and I totally dig her style. Jill is hilarious, super smart and utterly charming. She is a Shining Super Star. Totally Crushing on Jilly Bean.


Fascinating Jill trivia:)

• favorite color? Black! It goes with everything!

• favorite team? Without a doubt the Pittsburgh Penguins. I grew up in a hockey family and one of my earliest memories that I can still recall is the starting line up of the '83-'84 season - I was in kindergarten!

• if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Ooooo, um, Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate ice cream!

• party trend you are crushing on? The decorated sugar cookies for sure! I can't bake to save my life, but I've started trying because those are just too adorable for words. (And yummy!)

• party trend you are so over? I don't know if it was ever a trend, but having parties at the jumpy bounce house places. That should be against the law, and I could die happy having never attended another!

• favorite aisle in the craft store? Well it's not the checkout aisle, I can tell you that! LOL! No, I love the paper aisle. I don't get to do many events with patterned paper so it's a huge paper fetish for me. I buy it all the time and keep it stashed away in my desk... every once in a while getting it out to oooh and ahhhh over the cuteness of it, with all the glitter and embossing and pretty little patterns! (I think I have a problem!)

• do you wear Uggs? What's an Ugg? No, really!

• do you really exercise? I really walk to the bus stop, if it's not too hot and not too cold and not raining. Ok, no. I don't.

• minivan or non minivan driving? Non mini van! I love my Explorer!

• favorite holiday? Thanksgiving. My parents come to visit so it's just the 6 of us, we cook a huge dinner and don't even have to get out of our pjs if we don't want to : )

• favorite smell? Flowers, especially roses and gardenias.

• do you color your hair? I try not to, but when people start commenting that I look "that" old then I give in. It's genetic, unfortunately!

• do you think you’re cool? I am so not cool! Just ask my 7 year old!

Jill is a legend:) Great interview.

Brittany @ GreyGreyDesigns said...

Totally agree about the bounce house parties. We went to one last weekend and I was telling my husband that that was my own personal hell. Plus, they are so thoughtless on the parents' end!
