Lori Ahlin

I was born and raised in southern California but have lived in Henderson, Nevada since 1996. I've always been involved in some kind of arts and crafts, inspired by my Mom's creativity, but beading has been my passion for the last 7 years. I have found beading to be very therapeutic and I'm sure its cheaper than group therapy. I have a great sense of humor, a boustrious laugh and enjoy sharing my love of beading with others.
