RIP Paula, you were always an encouraging voice when I first started out with polymer clay and I have enjoyed working with you to keep The Love of Our Polymer Clay group going on Facebook. I will miss you and hope they have a great craft table all ready for you in heaven.

Cindy Lietz

How heartbreaking. :( Paula was a lovely person, who loved polymer clay so much that her and Beth Sullivan started a group called "The Love of Our Polymer Clay". She will be missed. Thank you Brenda for the sweet tribute for Paula. She would have been very touched by it. My love to her family and friends.

Pamela & Toby, Novegatti Designs

Thank you for letting us know, Brenda Sue, in such a graceful manner. I'm in shock and heartbroken at the loss of a special jewelry friend. Paula and I shared a love of polymer clay roses, and although I don't have any of hers, I will continue to make my own roses and dedicate some to her memory. Dance away in Heaven, Paula ... you'll always be in our hearts. <3

Candy Wham

Just heartbreaking. I have no words. Thank you Brenda for such a wonderful tribute and for using my favorite scripture. ((( Hugs)))

Marcia Tuzzolino

I met Paula at the first workshop, and was surprised at her tiny size. She had a beautiful smile that welcomed me in right away. She had a great laugh and sense of humor. We had been fb friends for a little while and I was disappointed that she had to leave early because there was no one to care for the dog. I loved seeing the photos of her precious Laylabug...her nickname for her beautiful little granddaughter. I am so sad to hear about her passing. Sending much love and peace to all of her family. She was well loved in our special group. May she rest in His eternal light.

Susan Bowerman

Beautiful tribute. So much talent lost. Speechless.

Jann Tague

Always shocked to loose a friend, and this is such a nice tribute. Her roses carry on for her, her spirit in our hearts, carry on for her, Paula didn't take one day for granted we are now reminded we shouldn't either, Rest in peace Paula, and condolences to your family. Thank you Brenda for the Post of a friend gone too soon.


There are no words; what heartbreaking news. Our dear Paula, I'm so sorry this happened to you and your family. You worked so hard to make beautiful roses for my granddaughter's wedding jewelry. I will never forget that labor of love. I'm so glad I got to meet her in person and will cherish her roses. Paula, you will be so missed. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in a world that will be free of sickness and death, suffering and pain. (Revelation 21:3, 4) My heart and prayers go out to Paula's family, her dear husband and her beautiful granddaughter. Also, my heart goes out to Brenda and the group for suffering such a loss as this. 💔 💔 💔

Much love,
Catherine Shattuck

Jacqulin Jordan

Thank you for such a beautiful tribute. RIP Paula. Prayers for the family.

Gina-Marie Hammer

This is terribly, terribly sad. She was such a kind person. I never got the chance to have any of her roses. She and I had been working on a bulk deal when I caught pneumonia last year. After that, everything was forgotten.

She always had a kind word, and a smile for everyone on Facebook. She always reached out to help, whenever she could. I may have forgotten the roses, but I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I will never forget her spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Terry Matuszyk

She was such a bright spot with a beautiful smile at the workshop that I attended. And such a huge part of B'Sue's creative group ♥ with such talent for polymer clay. RIP Paula.

Sherry Russell

Such a talented lady......my heart is heavy for her family. She will be missed by so many.


I am shocked. Paula made my first sale from my Etsy shop. I made her first sale from hr website. I couldn't make rose buds and bought many from her o line store. Paula was the first person I connected in Brenda creative group when it moved from flicker to Facebook. I shared supplies with her and shared polymer tips with me. We even had several discussions about how long to bake polymer. Paula adored her granddaughter and we even shared daycare tips as I was a daycare provider at one time. Omg! Her sense of humor always put a smile on my face. She was just so funny on her delivery. She even put Christie thru the ringer, which was light hearted and fun. She also tried teaching me how to make those little owl from Cindy Lietz tuts. She would laugh at my heavy hands she didn't give up on me. Came so easy for her. I lost my little owl she gave me. So she sent me one in the mail after several weeks I told her I never got it. Verified address and everything. So this time she sent me not one but little owls and did get them. Then several months later we had a good laugh as I finally received the little in the mail a little worn for the wear but still as cute as ever. I still have issues with making this owl small and cute. I will miss her dearly. She is very special to me and I will never forget her.

Prayers to her family.

Andrea Schubert

I am so sad to hear this news. I planned to get some of Paula's roses, and admired the posts I saw using them. I regret now that I did never get them. Brenda, I recognize the translation you quoted from when you shared Revelation 21:4. I hope her family can find comfort in their faith and the knowledge many will remember them in prayers. What a blessed relief it will be when sickness and death are distant memories.

Leslie Schmidt

What a great loss to the family and to our B'Sue Boutiques family. In the movie Emma, it was said best: "I don't like it when people go away." Thank you for gently sharing the news to us Brenda. Saying prayers for the family and her friends.

M Rangne

What a sad day! Unbelievably heart wrenching, such a Talented and KInd soul. Her roses are so beautiful, I have so many and I will treasure them even more now and think of using them in extra special pieces in her memory. Roses already have a very special Spiritual meaning to me and now will be even more so. Thank you B'Sue for this moving tribute and explanation of what happened to our dear creative friend!

Chris at Vintage Cravens

Thank you for your beautiful tribute to Paula. She was a wonderful person who will be missed.


Heartbreaking news, to lose such an inspirational talent and generous soul so soon. RIP beautiful lady x

Susan~Killam Creative

Oh, my. This is a lovely tribute for a very nice person. Thank you.

Brenda Snowdon

Lovely tribute. Thank you all for sharing your memories of Paula.

Elizabeth Owens

I am so very sorry for the loss of Paula. She was such a vibrant, fun, loving positive artist and friend. We had a very strong connection and friendship through the group For the love of Polymer clay. She would often ask me my advice and contribution to group challenges etc... she was a great friend to share our love for polymer clay with. Her roses were as beautiful as she was.
My prayers and love go out to Paula's family. Sending so much Love- Paula's very bight light will be very much missed, but never go out.

Ellen W Gonchar

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that Paula is gone. I was blessed to me her at one of the workshops and we had some really funny conversations. Such a beautiful person inside and out. My prayers and deepest sympathy are going out to her loved ones and family. Rest with the angels Paula...you surely will surrounded by roses. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend.

Lee Koopman

great blog post. Never really knew her but admired her roses and her WTW and beautiful finished pieces.
