I met Lacey long before SOLZ was ever born and could sense right away there was something special about her.  Having grown up in a family of artists, I think I learned to see the creative spark in certain peoples' eyes that set them apart.  While any artistic talent seems to have skipped me in the genetic card game, I have always gravitated to people who have it.  Every once in a while, I have seen people who's spark is more of a firework.  Then there is Lacey Bannister.  Its almost as if she created her signature headdresses as a...
