Meet Pamela + A Giveaway {Closed}

Today, I want everyone to meet a fabulous lady. Pamela, from Macdonald's Playland, is beautiful, kind, and sweet. She's a wife, mom to the adorable Lilly, and has another little bundle on the way. She also has a cute etsy shop dedicated to all the cute little peanuts out there called Peanut Lilly Creations. Last year I bought some really adorable items as gifts for my friends and they all loved them! 


Hello, Always Maylee readers! My name is Pamela and I am so excited to be here today! (Many thanks to Yi-chia for having me!) I am from Los Angeles and am happily married to my Scott, the proud mommy of a beautiful 2-year-old girl named Lilly (with a son on the way due at the end of March!), and I blog over at Macdonald's Playland.  
My blog exists so I can share & hopefully inspire through my creative outlets (I share a lot of crafts/DIY, home decor, party planning, etc.) and it also includes a smorgasbord (yes, I said "smorgasbord") of other things I enjoy in life such as recipes (I'm always rumbly in the tumbly!), fitness (or lack thereof), thoughts on marriage (TMI much?), and lessons in mothering/parenting (usually it's my child teaching me things!)  It would be fun to have you join me  as I adventure through wifehood and mommyhood! I love writing & sharing things that help & inspire fellow women, wives, mommies, etc. to get through their own adventure!

Some of my most popular posts include:
Oh, and of course I also document a lot of photographs, adventures, and shenanigans with my sweet husband and little family...
So that's me & my blog in a nutshell! Please come say hello!

And before I go, I have a fun giveaway for you all! Since Yi-chia is expecting her first baby around the same time I am expecting my next baby (we are both due in March and are about 1 week apart in our pregnancies!), I wanted to share my shop with all of you in honor of our upcoming little peanuts!

My Etsy shop, Peanut Lilly Creations is home to a variety of handmade items made especially for the little peanuts in your life. I create handmade accessories (such as beanies, tutus, hair bows, headbands, costumes, etc.) made specifically for babies and toddlers.

Currently, my most popular items are my ear warmers. Here are the Lilly-Bow Ear Warmer and the Knotted Ear Warmer:
I also recently started a metal stamped personalized jewelry collection there where you can show love for the special people in your family. All these pieces can be personalized (family names, children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, spouses, significant others, pets, wedding parties...you name it! The list goes on and on!)
I love running my shop and enjoy creating things for you all! With all that said, today I am giving away a $15 Gift Certificate to my shop! Also, because I enjoy makeup, I'm throwing a $20 Sephora E-Gift Card in there, too! Best of luck to all of you that enter, and thanks again for reading! Please stop by and say hello over in my playland! Would love to "meet" you!
