sponsor love: interview + giveaway with Alely of Oh Sweetlee Me!!!

i'm all about personal. i'm not happy with giving a gift without putting thought into it and making sure it's purrrfect for that particular person. (not that i always succeed but i def. aim for that!) today's sponsor brings you something that allows you to do that very thing. this friend is not only personal in her artwork but also in her blog as she introduces you to her life, family, and photography!

meet alely.

Tell us about your shop
and how you got started.

my shop right now currently consists of a few basic pieces of handstamped personalized sterling silver jewelry. i have been handstamping jewelry for almost 2 years and sales have been mostly by word of mouth through friends and since i've always wanted to open up my own etsy shop i figured i would start with that; however,because of my love for crafting i want my shop to include bits and pieces of everything i love to create, so slowly but surely i will be adding other jewelry pieces, some sewing and maybe some knitting, and crocheting goodness.

i'm hoping by the time you're reading this my shop will include a few pieces of my flower ruffle hairpins and because i love to change my camera strap cover all the time and it was always such a hassle to undo the camera strap from the camera to change the strap cover i created an easy change removable velcro camera strap cover with lens pocket, memory card pockets topped with a removable flower ruffle broche!

You write a lot about your family in your blog.
I think it's so awesome.
What is your favorite thing to do together?

besides God, my family is my world and they are my biggest source of inspiration! our most favorite thing to do together is eat because there's nothing like gathering around yummy food for good conversation and just catching up since extracurricular activities outside of school and job schedules keep us all busy.

Okay here is the hard question:
what is your all time favorite food?!

i am the biggest foodie ever and honestly i don't really have a favorite. the foods that i do love and enjoy eating are pastas, mexican food, vietnamese, thai, korean, chinese, japanese (sushi) and of course filipino food.

now take a peek into her adorable shop!


aren't these pieces so beautiful?!
i love the pearl accent and the simplicity of each accessory!
i'm thinking this is so IT for spring.
want your hands on your own to rock on this season?
today alely is giving away one of the two following giveaway options...

any personalized charm necklace
OR
a removable velcro camera strap cover


are you excited yet?!
if i were you, i'd be STOKED!?!
and i wouldn't know which one to choose?!
maybe i'd choose the necklace. no, the strap...but i do like those necklaces!
grrr. if you win, you decide for me!
