Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why is it called Alot?

A: Well first off, it’s because you get a lot! I do so many fun, crafty and artsy things, that I wanted the name of my website/blog/shop to reflect that. How I came up with it is that my first name is Anastasia and my surname is Loutfrakhmanova (quite a mouthful, right?). So I took the first letter from my name and the first few letters of my surname and came up with ALout, then I took out the u to make it Alot 🙂 I guess Alout could be my business name in France 😀
