My latest product . . .

Welcome to A Creates – a blog devoted to my right-brain activities.  I am not a professional artist, merely someone who loves to explore her creative side in a variety of ways. 

Starting this blog has already taught me a thing or two. So hopefully you will see the fruits of that labor as time goes on.  To kick things off, enjoy these two pics of beaded necklaces I’ve made.
