“2010 Chicky Fest”

 

Description from Chicky ChaCha: Hey you Lovely Chicks! Several of us have been discussing how neat it would be to be able to meet up somewhere in the country and have a Chicky Fest and do beading ( as Sandra Gems Chica says--beading our brains out LOL) and maybe some bead shopping. I am not sure how this could be arranged but I know I would love to meet so many of you lovely gals! Let's put our Chicky heads together and come up with some ideas. What do you say???? RU READY FOR CHICKY FEST 2010???? I had to put some crazy lace in here b/c it will be CRAZY!!!!!!!!!

    truely, i would love to meet one weekend and have a beading retreat! i am the only person i know in my area that beads-we do not have one bead shop in my state-i order all my beads online or from micheals. so my contact on here is the only way i have to discuss beading. when i talk about my new beads to my friends at work, they kinda give me the deer in the headlights look.

  7. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Gosh Monica–where the heck are you? No bead shops in your whole STATE????? You poor girl!!!! That’s a crime!

  12. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

  13. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    I’m kind of in the middle–OK–Tulsa to be exact.

  14. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

  15. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

  16. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Sorry no offense Monica!

  17. Chicky ChaCha

  18. Shelly m
    M mccallister mrs chick says:

    LOLOL no offense taken not in the least. yes please get me out of here!!!

  19. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    or we could go to Anita’s place up north…as long as it is during the July or August so I can escape the Texas heat!

  20. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    I am in PA. I have never been further than V Beach. I would love to have a reason to travel somewhere!

  21. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Keep the ideas rolling girls so we can hopefully come to some sort of decision that will work well for us and also to see if this can become a reality–Good night and sweet dreams to everyone.

  22. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Let’s get Lorrie and Monica somewhere girls! Lorrie needs to leave PA & Monica needs to leave WV and Susan would like to get out of Texas—-hmmmm are we narrowing it down yet LOL???

    Smoky Rose says:

    Santa Fe!!!!
    such a cute pick, I love it!

  24. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Smoky Rose—if I do get to meet you in real life—you better watch out b/c I love kitties and you look like the cutest little kitty in your profile pick. :) Sante Fe sounds pretty good—there is so much history there and lots of cool shops and the whole city is in adobe. I have never been there.

  25. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    If smoky wants to come, we can carpool ;)

  28. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    OH wow—you are both gorgeous!!!!

  29. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Santa Fe is becoming a popular pick to meet. I am for it—we just don’t want it to be a burden on anyone to have to travel too far—considering the lovely economy we have and I am sure some of you have little ones that will need tending to back home.

  30. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    thank you, Mary Lou. how very nice of you. I think it’s just easier sometimes to communicate when we can picture who is on the other side.

  31. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    As Sandra stated—anybody who would seriously like to have a Chicky Fest 2010 speak now or forever hold your peace (jade) LOL! We haven’t heard from a lot of chicks yet so let’s hear it…. Again–good night—I am pooped.

  32. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    You and Little Fox are knockouts. He is adorable too, very soft and huggable looking–love his eyes. Thanks for sharing Smoky Rose!

    I have the Chick theme song…. It’s on LP. I’ll see what I can do….

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    LP – what’s that???
    LOL (i remember 45′s! had the fuzzy case & all)

    I’m on eastern Long Island (NY) about as east as you can get! But I’m up for traveling. Summer is best for me.

  35. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    Ah yes, 45s. I’ve heard that one should date oneself. Looks like I’m doing a great job of it!;)

  36. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    My brother bought an 8 track player

  37. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    If there were a fest in the Mississippi valley, attendees could enjoy the fact that there they get all the seasons – sometimes all at once! (Well, almost.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    too hard to pack for 4 seasons at once. I want to use carry on luggage. LOL

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    btw – what is the chick theme song?

  40. CC
    CC says:

    Oh no, I’m up there with you guys that had 45′s and 78′s…..I was VERY young :D
    I’m in NW Florida and there is one bead store in my 40 mile away town, and one in the town 70 miles away….Nice weather, lousy bead source!! ;)
    What is the chick theme song?

  41. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    The chick theme song: there is a song that a very popular local comedian used to “sing” when I was a kid. He and a choir of other humans making chicken sounds sang this song, and I thought it was
    *very* funny. I have it on a 33 put away with my other records.

  42. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    The clucking, etc. was sung to the tune of In The Mood

  43. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    AHHH Yes we are in the mood to BEAD!!! Sounds like a great theme song. We still need to get opinions on where to meet. So far Santa Fe seems to be mentioned. Any other suggestions girls?

  44. Breezy Chick aka Bree
    Breezy Chick aka Bree says:

    Ohhh, I wish I could come :-( If I win lotto in between now and then I’ll book a flight to the chosen meeting place. I imagine it would be loads of fun and I could learn so much from you all. Off to pick some lucky numbers… I hope :-)

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    I’m interested!!! Somewhere central would be nice. Not sure I could swing a trip to Santa Fe but I’d sure love to put it on my bucket list!!! Let’s see how the plans progress. I’m not ruling out anything!!!!
    :-D
    BTW; I’m in southern Indiana.

  46. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    I’d be interested too but I don’t think I’d be able to do Santa Fe either….I’m in MA.
    How fun would a Chicky Fest be? Lots & lots, I’m sure!
    Lovely pick Mary Lou!

    How wonderful to see your lovely face again Mary! You look mahvelous!

    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    Very cool pick, Mary Lou…you sure know how to use those letters!
    I would LOVE to have a Chicky Fest 2010, but with finances being the way they are, long distance travel is probably going to be out of the question. However, maybe Bree and I will both win the lottery!!!! Anyway, I live in South Central PA, about 20 minutes from Harrisburg. If I can swing the $$$$$, count me in!

  48. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Hey Gals—we need more input. Sounds like Santa Fe works for some but not for others. There is a whole big country in between the east and west coast LOL. Can someone come up with a good spot? Susan Movie Chick suggested Ann Arbor, MI, which would probably be gorgeous and we could pluck the LB warehouse dry–or could we ??? LOL That is a pretty neat idea. Maybe we can LB to even host us–whaddya say LB???? Do you want to sponsor a Chicky Fest 2010 and start a tradition????

  49. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    How about Chicky Fest 2010 and a great big sale??????? waahooooooooooooo

  50. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Hey Everyone–I just emailed the LB team to see if they would be willing to sponser the Chicky Fest 2010. So if they would that would be a possibility. We could go and peck our way through the LB warehouse. heh heh

  51. Sali Jo GemsChica Chick
    Sali Jo GemsChica Chick says:

    Chicky Cha Cha you are reading my mind! Lima Beads could offer us some super good prices…and a place to play…and then that would be it! Come on LB–give it some thought! I am going to post it on their blog….

  52. FaeryGoth Chick
    FaeryGoth Chick says:

    Sounds wonderful, but I live so far away :-( It would be nice to meet you all chickies…

    Andrew M says:

    Hey everybody, we hear you loud and clear! We are going to discuss it soon and get back to you with some ideas. We’re not sure we are equipped to handle a large crowd, but we can certainly help plan and organize other events and meetups (beadups?) you might be planning.

  54. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    That would be GREAT!!!

    J Yee smart chick says:

    Hey chickies, I LOVE this suggestion, Mary thanks for starting it!!! :)

    Okay, I’m up in Seattle and totally understand the discussion on choosing a central location! while I too would love to travel away from WA state, until I’m finished with grad school and my finances improve, it will be difficult for me to travel a long ways too. My vote is for this coming summer, July or August??? This would give me time to finish grad school, a totally selfish request on my part… weather would be OK too… anyone up for helping us connect w/ other chickies in our area so we could travel together and maybe lodge together??
    I really really would love to meet everyone – Smoky rose, thanks so much for posting pics of you and your kitty Little Fox, you both are gorgeous!!! :)

    Valentine Chick says:

    Oh my you girls have been busy plottin’ and plannin’! LOL! A Chick fest in LB world…what more could a beadaholic want????!!!??? I think it would be fantastic! JIll and I could come together. We live in NW PA. Would probably be a 5-6 hour drive for us. :)

  60. Valentine Chick
    Valentine Chick says:

    Move over Woodstock…The ChickFest is ready to begin!

  61. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    LOL VC—Could we call it Beadstock 2010?

  62. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Hey LB—that’s it Chicky Beadstock 2010—we get to come and stock up on Lima Beads!!! You have to admit that could become a really cool marketing tool for you all heh heh! You could have bead buyers coming in from all over the place. Maybe even have a couple of “Rock” & “Metal” bands heh heh!

  63. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Count me in, no matter where it is! How fun would that be?? Hey, ever heard of beading cruises? Bet LB could get us a good rate, and we could bead our hearts out during the day and dance our nights away!

    I like the July/August time frame too.

    Smoky, you and Little Fox are just too adorable!

  64. Purple Chick aka Violet
    Purple Chick aka Violet says:

    Count me in !!!!!!! Chicky Beadstock 2010 is a great name !!!!!
    You Rock Chicky ChaCha !!!!

    My vote is for Santa Fe, because I’ve been there and it is so cool…lots of bead sources and lots of artist studios to visit….
    it’s so beautiful there… we could get lots of inspiration…. it’s THE place to buy gorgeous New Mexico Turquoise !!!!!

    But , I understand that would be hard for some…. so I’m up for anywhere….. LB sounds great too !!!! Summer is good for me !!

  65. Purple Chick aka Violet
    Purple Chick aka Violet says:

    A Bead Cruise, yes, that would be wonderful !!!!!!! I love cruises !!!

  66. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO A cruise HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM oh yes AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH dancing the night away OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Great idea Chicky Sue—glad to see your adorable beady little mug back in the garden. You’ve been missed!!!

  67. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    I’ve been missing all my beading buddies too, ChaCha! It’s good to be back!

    Violet, good to see you back too! I must say, I was really looking forward to Chicky Beadstock 2010 in Santa Fe – I could drive AND hit Trader Joe’s at the same time! LOL!

  68. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Violet—Santa Fe would be great for me but some of the ladies said it wouldn’t work for them. We’ll have to see if LB comes up with some ideas. Thanks for your input :)

  69. Purple Chick aka Violet
    Purple Chick aka Violet says:

    Thanks Sue… it’s good to see you back too…. I’ve missed you …
    I was on vacation in Hawaii, then working a lot, plus trying to make lots of stuff for the up coming shows… whew…. I’ll be ready for another vacation !!!!

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Ohhh, this sounds like fun! May be able to do it, maybe not… Brother is getting married in NYC June 12 – family of 4 to travel & stay which will get expensive fast. I’m in so. central Kansas – so anything out of the midwest I’ll be flying. I don’t have any good timing suggestions, but I’ll try to roll with what you decide :) Great idea!

  74. No Photo
    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Hey Lori – Where’s your brother getting married? I’m about an hour and a half or so from NYC, in the Hamptons. We’ve got extra bedrooms!

    Michigan is probably more do-able for me than Santa Fe. It’s a 12 hour drive straight through PA. We can caravan and carpool from the east coast picking stragglers along the way. Watch out Jill and Jen – you just might have visitors.

  75. No Photo
    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    Summer would also work for me if I’m able to attend. Santa Fe sounds wonderful, and I’ve never been there, but Michigan would be more do-able for me as well.

  76. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    I think summer would be an excellent time. Let’s see what we hear back from the LB team. I would think they could hopefully get us some good room rates at a decent hotel and give us a tour—I think a cool scavenger bead hunt would be awesome heh heh. Find Aquakitty—right Lynn? I wonder if any teachers would be willing to come in and do some really cool classes??? Just some ideas. I still like the Santa Fe idea too.

    Mary, I’m in! I like the idea of LB land, then I know I can make it!! Not too far from me in Wisc. Gotta make sure CAS hears about this……………BEADFEST 2010 HERE WE COME!!!!

  80. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    It would be the First Annual Beadfest, too…. :D

    Perhaps I should have said “First Annual ChickFest”!
