Together they ran Rubber Baby for a total of 17 years until, in 2006, after realizing that there was more to life than working 16 hour days, they sold Rubber Baby. Paula started a spin-off by creating Paula's Kit Club - an extension of the kits she had put together periodically with Rubber Baby. Chuck passed away 6 days after suffering a brain aneurysm in April 2007 leaving Paula to run the kit club on her own.

Paula is staying busy with her Basenji, Enzo, and Manx cat, Milo, and making one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces she sells on etsy.com and her own website, paulamontgomery.com. Her hobbies include running, cooking, watching movies, collecting ephemera and, of course, stamping and making jewelry.

Paula made 7 appearances on The Carol Duvall Show on HGTV and has been published in Somerset Magazine and Somerset Gallery.
