Star Sponsor: Lori from Chic Geek Designs

Today I'm so happy to introduce the lovely Lori from Chic Geek Designs!

Lori creates beautiful photographic prints, greeting cards, journals, and coasters! Take a peek:

1. Where do you get your inspiration to create?
I get inspired by the things around me - beautiful things. I love looking through magazines for inspiration and I love traveling to beautiful places. Traveling is always a huge inspiration for me. The beach is one place that I can always go and feel inspired. If I could pick up and move anywhere, it would be there and then I would forever be inspired! (Or never get any work done as I'd always be on the beach! ;-))

2. What are some tips you can share for people who might be thinking of opening their own shop?
Don't get discouraged. This is a large market with lots of big fish, so there is a lot of learning and a lot of research that goes into making the business work. So don't get discouraged when things do go like you expected. I have to remind myself of this all the time!

3. What's your favorite thing about owning your own business?
I like being able to send things off to people and know that they will be enjoying them in their house or sending a card to someone else to enjoy. It's the thought that something I created is making someone else happy.

4. What's your favorite beverage?
My favorite beverage, which is off-limits right now thanks to my doctor, is an Iced Peppermint White Mocha from Starbucks. So yummy!

5. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
Right now, my super power would be to have endless energy and to be able to do everything without sleeping. :-) There is so much I want to do but I am constantly tired and down with migraines. So that would be my superpower!


Lori has generously offered a 20% off discount to her sweet shop through the end of March with coupon code TEACH20

Happy shopping, everyone!
