Since joining BBEST I have met such a nice bunch of people. All are lovely but some are darn right fascinating. Here's a look at three that instantly come to mind.
Pam of Magdalene Jewels falls right into this category. She met the love of her life, Paul, right here in the states and spend 8 wonderful years together. What's fascinating there? The fact that he is from India and had to return home to care for ailing parents and a fabulous job of heading 2 departments of major universities. With 14,000 miles between them they haven't been able to see each other for 18 months but chat and email everyday. Pam says when you find that one special person in your life it is something you will never lose. Okay everyone... say Awwwwww!

Next on my list is one of the busiest members I know. That would be Katzie of Katzskreations. She works for a theater company but its her second job that fascinates me. She is a choreographer. Now for me, a two left footed boomer I just think this is so cool. She has steady gigs at the Five Star Theatre, Reading Memorial High School,and Parker Middle School. She's also worked for quite a few other schools or centers. She's been teaching children ages 5 - 18 for 14 years now. She's had some favorites including Beauty and the Beast, Crazy for You, Starmites, Once On This Island and The Boyfriend. She loves working with the kids and finds it truly rewarding to see the finished product on stage.
Katzie also makes some beautiful jewelry, this is one of my favorites:

Rounding out this group is our PQ from both PreciousQuilts and Onawhimsey She has traveled the globe and then some. She grew up in Indonesia until she was eight and finished schooling in Guernsey, Channel Islands. She joined WRAF as a Loadmaster travelling routes covering across the US, Trinidad, Bahrain, Gan (Maldives), Singapore, Hong Kong, Cyprus. She has worked in numerous positions in diverse countries such as Switzerland and Bahrain whilst living in many from UK, Europe to Middle East (Iran,Oman) to Far East which included Tokyo. Now I find that fascinating, don't you? Right now PQ's interest is in the beautiful encaustic art. Here is one of my favorites.
