The lovely Mariel, who was featured in a Geek of the Week post in April, has recently opened a new Etsy store—Ask LOLA—influenced by her geeky/nerdy personality, her faith and simple minimalist design.
As she says on the shop's about page:
geek out. have faith. craft on.Mariel has long been a Friend of C&CC, and when I put out the call for ads earlier this month, she contacted me wanting to promote Ask LOLA—and offered to sponsor a giveaway! And as y'all know, I'm never one to turn down the chance to give something fun away.
i've always enjoyed crafting and creating. my lola (filipino word for grandma) is one of the influential crafters in my life, and my shop's name is inspired by her.
here's the story behind the shop name:
when i was about three years old, i was quite inquisitive. during a busy family get-together one time, my parents, aunts + uncles would reply to my questions the same way...
"may i have some juice?" / "ask lola"
"can you help me tie my shoes?" / "ask lola"
"will you play a game with me?" / "ask lola"
eventually, i caught on, and later that evening when my uncle asked me to hand him a napkin, i cleverly replied, "ASK LOLA!"
One lucky entrant will receive:
An 8-bit heart paper pendant (plus a few other surprise geek goodies)! Super cute, right?
