Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Chic Geek Designs *CLOSED*


I'm so excited to introduce you to Lori of Chic Geek Designs (you may have heard of her already!). Lori sells her beautiful photography as cards, photographs, and coasters! I'm in love with these gorgeous coasters... they're making me feel ready for spring!


1. What made you decide to open a shop, and how did you decide on your shop name?

I actually had my blog first and it is named the same as my shop - ChicGeek Designs. It was hard for me to come up with a name that I felt fit "me". I really had wanted something with the word "pink" in because that is my favorite color. So between my husband, my parents and me, we were all thinking of names for my blog. And one day this name just popped into my head and I knew it was "me". Chic because I love shopping! Geek because I'm in IT and I'm a bit of a techy geek with all my IT toys and Designs because I love Interior Designs. I decided to open a shop because I love photography and traveling and wanted to share some of those places with people.

2. What is your favorite thing to make / what supplies to do you love to use most?


I love making the cards and trying to figure out the right quotes to put with the right picture. Not every quote goes with every picture, I feel like it has to be "just right".


3. What do you spend too much money on?

Lol. Did you read question 1? I love to shop - so I could spend way too much money on shopping for clothes, shoes and purses. But then I could also spend it on my other passion, photography and getting new lenses.


4. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Eat? Chocolate! Drink? Starbucks! Haha. Starbucks was the first thing that popped into my mind but that's not eating. But I'm answering it anyways. :-)

5. What is your favorite thing about winter?

I love wearing boots and sweaters. And curling up on the couch with my blankets. Other than that, not really a fan of winter! Haha.
