Meet Leah

Thank you so much for stopping in my shop. I'm very glad you found me. Let me introduce myself so you can get to know me a little bit better.

Leah Michele Creations comes from my name - it's my first and middle name, and yes, there is only one "l" in my middle name.
My parents did this so that all of my siblings and I would have 19 letters in our full names.

As a young girl my grandma taught me how to crochet. I started with simple baby afghans and granny squares. 
I'm very thankful for this skill that she took the time to teach to me. Since getting married and having children I have taught myself how to knit
and sew. I have five children (3 boys and 2 girls) and it can be difficult to find items that coordinate with each other. 
So out of necessity I have made many clothing items for my children.
I enjoy all forms of crafting, but sewing, crocheting, and knitting are my favorite. I have decided to take this passion further and 
start selling my hand made items.

My family currently makes our home in central Iowa. I was born in Iowa, but raised in Wisconsin - so I am a Packer fan! 
I also love to garden (both vegetable and flower gardening) and Iowa provides good long summers to grow things. 
My children keep me busy with the oldest being 10 and the youngest being 2 years old. I enjoy being able to stay at home with them and watch them grow. 
My husband serves in the Iowa Army National Guard full time. Even though there is always a risk of more deployments, we are blessed that he is home 
now. His training, TDY's, and deployments have made him a world traveler. He enjoys serving his country and his job - I wouldn't have it
any other way. I'm so thankful to my understanding children and my even patient husband who support me in my hobbies.
