Pelhuaz Exquisite Friend of the Week: Little Green Guy

I met Brittany thru one of the Handmade Community pages that I participate in, and she's one of the friendliest persons I know. She has so many talents that you will be amazed. She paints (beautifully), she makes sculptures, she makes fluffy cyclops, she's also a children's book writer, and much more. She even motivates others to stay in shape, Isn't she amazing? I adore her and her happy soul! <3

So here is my Exquisite Friend Brittany!

Pelhuaz: What's your name?
Brittany: Brittany
Pelhuaz: What's your superpower?  
Brittany: Talking to animals.

Pelhuaz: Who do you consider your sidekick and why?
Brittany: My friend Tara of Fuzzy Toes, I can ramble the most random non-sensical idea and whether she understands it or not she is super supportive and doesn't say I am crazy ;) Well not to my face anyway.
Pelhuaz: If you were on an island and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?
Brittany: Paints, sketchbook, hmmmm my kindle? Do I get WIFI there ;)
Pelhuaz: What do you think about when you are alone in your car? 
Brittany: Oh man, so many things! I like to write while I am in the car, not on paper (I'd puke, yummy right? Well I guess and crash my car) But I voice record lines for my next childrens book. I plan out my never ending "to-do" list, and try to ignore what a mess I know my house will be whenever I return ;)

Pelhuaz: What was the last movie you went to see?
Brittany: Went to see? I have small children so this is rare and I can't remember!
Pelhuaz: Tell us about your Small Business…  Describe your store and products?
Brittany: I own Little Green Guy, I create fun illustrations, plush toys, sculptures and childrens books all featuring the Little Green Guy and his friends! Little Green Guy is an adorable mischievous little green monster with one big eye and a cute little green but!

Pelhuaz: What is your favorite item available at your store? 
Brittany: The Basic LGG plush

Pelhuaz: What motivates/inspires you?
Brittany: Everything inspires me, my children, nature, coffee ;) As far as motivation I like to push myself hard and push myself as far as I can go.
Pelhuaz: How much time off do you get/take in a week?
Brittany: What IS time off? I have taken some time off recently, abotu 2 weeks, best decision I could have made I needed a brain and body break.
Pelhuaz: When is your Store Anniversary? 
Brittany: Nov 11


Pelhuaz: Imagine that I’m planning to open Pelhuaz, and I don’t know a thing about managing a Small Business, what will be your best advice?
Brittany: Follow your heart, do what makes you happy, set tiny goals and celebrate when you reach them, never loose sight of time with your family. And a lesson I have learned after I spent about 3 months off and on crazy sick, take care of YOU. Healthy eating, exercise, get those in check first, no matter how big your to-do list is, it can wait while you squeeze in that 20 minute exercise and plan your meals for the week. It may seem like a burden but YOU are your business, if you get sick, then there is no business. Be healthy, Be happy, and go Create <3

I have to say that I love every single thing about this interview and the great advice provided... You are your business... If you are a Small Business Owner -as we are, you will find the truth on it!

As I'm in love with the LGG and their cute little green butt :D, I visited her shop to pick my favorites:

Last Christmas, I took advantage of a listing and made a special order for my girl and for me of these ABC Sculpture. Z and orange for me and K with purple and pink and pink for her. 

I love this guys and they are part of my living room decoration.

How about this fluffy Mini LGG Plush? So adorable!

I couldn't decide of which of just one of her fabulous prints from her 5x7 Print Collection. But who doesn't feel like this LGG thinking "it's morning again"? I do!
