sponsor love: interview + GIVEAWAY with Megan of Making Lemonade

i love the refreshment (making lemonade, get it? hehe) and excitement in today's sponsor love post. she has an incredible attitude towards life and is just so darn cute - i know you'll like her as much as i do. not only is her shop oh-so-lovely, i have been enjoying the creativity exuding from her suh-weet blog! and the girl likes Harry Potter (check her about me section) - so come on! how can you not love this pretty lady?!

meet megan.

tell us about your cuuuuuute shop.

Making Lemonade was started when I was bored one day. I have always loved crafting/sewing but I never really tried making headbands, so I decided to do just that. After that day, I was pretty much addicted to making them! I love it!


is there a story behind the name?

I chose the name because of the saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!" I mean, isn't that what crafting is all about? Using everyday things and turning them into something SWEET! :)


what's your favorite thing about springtime?

Hmm... that's hard. The scenery. I love photography and spring is such a gorgeous time with all the flowers. But I also love it because that means we are even closer to summer break!!!! 

what is your first memory ever?

My first memory ever..... I "remember" things from all the way back when I was around 3 years old. The reason I use quotation marks is because I'm not exactly sure if they are from pictures or if I ACTUALLY remember it! Haha! Well I for sure remember when I was 5 or 6 I was at my house playing with my friend. I used to flip myself around while holding onto the edge of the table (kind of like on monkey bars or something when you flip around holding on to the monkey bars.. if that make sense...haha). I was obviously getting to big for it because this time the table fell on me and landed on my nose.  Good thing my friend was there to try to get it up and tell my mom or it probably would've been broken. It wasn't though!

and now introducing her shop!!!

 okay so most of you know that i'm already a sucker for headbands.
make them. buy them. wear them.
(you would know that especially after CE. 
i think everything i bought was in the headband catergory).

sooooo...this shop definitely caught my eye with her variety of headbands blossoming with rosettes, sparkles and glitter! 
i'm especially in love with this one.

and today Megan is so generously offering a Much Love, illy reader...
