Get to Know

I'm Mary Carter and I misspent my youth in accounting but recently discovered the joys of creativity, first as a jewelry designer and mixed media artist with my home-based business, Bear Chick Originals. I'm the former secretary and newsletter editor for the Bead Society of Orange County. I live with one entertaining husband and two crazy cats and in my spare time, I read, travel and learn as much new stuff as I can!
