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.  

Enjoy!
