Personal

My name is Paula and I’ve been a bead addict for the last 7 years. My best friend caught the beading bug first and showed me the basics. I started out just going to make one necklace. Right.

Although I’m a native Nebraskan, I left the state after high school and spent the next 40+ years living in or near big Midwestern cities. Three years ago I re-connected with my “first love” and we decided to share our lives together. I’ve been living in Nebraska again since then and couldn’t be happier. Never would have dreamed that I’d be content in a small town in the middle of ranch country, but life sometimes has great surprises in store for us – - -

    Just love the sparrow, Asia, and you have created such a perfect surrounding for the pendant. Also am curious about the rough stone next to the focal – – and also love the way you used the waxed linen. Superb creation !

    But you only used one of the two holes, Asia ! Just kidding – – they look stunning. Two-hole beads still mystify me – – -

    Hello Paula! When we get back to northern Minnesota (Bemidji) I am seriously considering hosting an upper midwest beading week-end. Both my husband and I were born in Minneapolis and built a retirement home on a lake 15 miles out of Bemidji on lakeshore property my dad bought in1968. What goes around, comes around, doesn’t it?
    Take care and be well. M
