Hi everyone, my name is Leah and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. (Yes, I'm a rare native breed!) I'm an ancient alien theorist that fell in love with a master motorcycle technician while living in Louisiana when we agreed on what was the best Role Playing Game of all time, then married him a few months later wearing a Lynard Skynard shirt (he wore Metallica)! However, being a southerner, he does enjoy when I act like a pristine southern belle from time to time, so I keep in touch with the trends in fashion.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was a little girl, and I've been hooking non stop ever since. Tradition has always meant something to me, so I try to make items that honor this generations old art while being fresh and unique - nostalgic novelties- and hope to inspire other crafty women to try this technique for themselves.

I love, Love, LOVE lace, and fall is the perfect time for a scarf that breathes. Cowls are my most favorite accessory in the cold months because there are so many ways you can wear it. Aside from that I've been anticipating the release of Borderlands 2 for a long time and became inspired to design something that fit in that culture. As a plain old scarf, rolled up as a statement necklace, or hooded over your ears to keep them warm and imitate video game characters, you can wear it every day of the week!
