“Paula's Charms”


Description from Crazy Beader: First of all, I'm not terribly good at following rules, so I've used pendants and a link as well as charms to describe myself.
Winter is my favorite season - - no bugs, no allergies - - and I even like to scoop snow. So, naturally, Christmas is my favorite holiday.
I'm a foodie - - love to prepare it, serve it, eat it and even wash all the dishes afterwards.
I'm also a little bit of a gearhead - - love fast vehicles. I've ridden my motorcycles over 100,000 miles in 42 states, and driven cars in 7 countries.
Although I think dogs are great creatures, cats are my animal companion of choice. I was fortunate to be the guardian of 2 fabulous Birmans for over 17 years and hope someday to share my home with at least one more cat. But most importantly, right now I am one of those very lucky people who gets to share my life with my first love and best friend.

    Paula, this is great!
    I am fascinated by your “gear head” adventures! :) You must have some great memories of so many fun places.
    I’m a cat person too! They may seem independent and finicky, but they offer unconditional love!

    Yes, Julie, I have some fabulous pictures in my head of the spectacular scenery I’ve seen from my vehicles.
    And my take on cats is that they can also be pretty demanding, too – - my one cat learned how to turn on the clock radio on the headboard if I overslept and forgot to feed him – - -

    Love your story!! A motorcycle mama! :) I saw a T-shirt that said “there is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast” :) So glad to meet you! ;)

    Hi Paula – your story was wonderful! Thanks for sharing some interesting facts about yourself. I’m especially drawn to the fact that you were able to find your first love and start a life together – so romantic!

    Crazy Beader says:

    And gosh Beth, normally I would never admit to being a romantic (my real strengths are with numbers and organizing), but at heart I am hugely sentimental and so delighted to be in love again !

    Paula, this is awesome. Breaking rules is at the heart of every creative and adventourous person. So I think it is perfect. I am intrigued by your travels…and your need for speed. Hubby & I are Nascar fans…so our ‘fast’ bug is more of a spectator sport. LOL No motorcycles, but we love to travel and see the country…esp if there is a Nascar track nearby :-) Thanks for sharing!

    Crazy Beader says:

    Well Jackie, I too watch NASCAR – - especially that last 10 laps when it gets really wild and crazy ! But my favorite races are Formula 1 and any motorcycle races – - -

    Laud says:

    I’m with you on Formula 1, but I lost a good friend to a motorcycle crash, so I’m leery about those. (Be careful, y’hear?) How wonderful that you re-connected with your first love! Keep breaking rules–and making lovely picks.

    Wonderful :D I’m not good at following rules either, I must have missed reading them too :( Be careful on your bike!

    What a lovely pick and great story about yourself, Paula! I love fast cars, too!

    MaryLou says:

    A world traveler..that intrigues me! And Birmas are such beautiful cats (furry royalty); but what I find really interesting is you love for bikes AND wonder you like to travel! ;)
