“Beading Prison”

 

Description from Daisy Chick - Dawn: Martha & I have a pact! We are not allowed to buy beads until after July 20th. Our husband may put us in beading prison. The medusa is poor Martha & I green impression jasper to make an impression on our spending habits, blue impression jasper we are so sad and the honeystone is I see the light at the end of the tunnel. We will be good. The black water jasper more torture if we don't be good. Comments anyone?

    Ha! I LOVE IT! This is so ultra cool, my friend! You’ve perfectly depicted with these beads how I’m feeling. Beading prison! I love it! You are too clever! :D

    HeHeHeHe!! Love it! I think I need to be thrown into the same prison with you two! 8O I made a pact with myself to not buy beads for awhile…………that only lasted a week!! :-(
    Good luck to you Dawn and Martha! ;-)

    So, should I delete everything in my bag?! :| Hmmmmm?????

    What a cool pick Dawn, and I love the title!!! I have tried to slow down also on buying beads, but it’s sooooo hard!!!

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Truth, honesty, and justice will win out! Soon you two will be out of beading prison. My how time flies when you are having fun. Before we know it winter will be here and we will be complaining about snow instead of the miserable heat waves ladies. Not long to suffer though may seem like an eternity. Great one!!!

    I know the feeling :-) We all do I guess! Great pick.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Dawn, this pick perfectly describes those dark days and nights in beading prison! LOL Sigh….. At least you have Martha to keep you company! ;)

  11. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you so much Chickies and ladies for your support and nice comments! If you decide to impound yourself in prison that is okay with me, but I don’t recommend it. I would appreciate your support if I get a moment of weakness.

  12. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thanks Lynn. We just started. Poor Martha had an accident she forgot she had made an agreement to buy a pendant then had to pay for it after we made our Pact. I told her we would now start anew!

  13. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Mary Don’t delete your bag, someone has to keep LB going for us!

  14. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Dawn, thank you for your patience and tolerance! What can I say? I lost my head! It was temporary bead insanity! You are so very good to me, my friend! ;)

  15. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I guess Matha and I will have to find other ways to keep busy. I have a garden and toads to take caare of and the dogs will get more walks. I may even have a cleaner house. Does a beaded alarmed ankle bracelet count?

  16. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Ha! We shall be the best accessorized beading prisoners! ;)

  17. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Maybe we should create little beaded collars for the toads?

  18. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I still love you Martha! I know you put your head back on. Got an idea! We should make each other prison necklaces while we abstain from purchases.

  19. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Brilliant! You are definitely the brains behind this duo. ;)

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Toad Jewerly now that’s a thought!

    Helen G aka tea chick says:

    Lock me up in there too! I remember once reading a quote from Isabella Rosselini, “I do better when I have a few clothes than when I have many, because it makes me more creative” (in coming up with new outfits). Perhaps the same will be true of us when we use our stash without buying new stuff!

  22. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Oh Helen you may be on to something there. Creativity here I come.

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    I like where this conversation is going!
    A wise and excellent tip Helen!

    And I would so love to see beaded toad collars! :-D ;-) :-P

    I think I’ve decided to be locked up in bead prison with you. It sounding more and more fun all the time! ;-)

    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    Dawn, you are quite the creative genius! First this awesome pick (awesomely creative for the circumstances at hand), then the ankle alarm (which set off a whole new wave of creative thinking)… Please let me know if either of you need any “comfort” items while you are so horribly confined!! I will be most happy to help! :D

  25. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Oh Grammy Chick how kind of you! aT the moment the only comfort items I may need will be a generous supply of ideas, support,chocolate and coffee.

  26. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Maybe a little bit of wine and a lot of bead therapy? ;)

  27. No Photo
    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    The support, of course, is already in place, but I’ll have to get to work on the rest. I think Martha is definitely on to something with that wine (to go with the chocolate), and bead therapy ALWAYS works! :D

  28. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    What kind of bead therapy? Will it hurt? Wine Hummm………..

    Chicky Zee aka Alice says:

    What a cool pick you and title!

  30. Eeka Mouse
    Eeka Mouse says:

    Well, at least you can still buy chocolate… And this will be a good time to use up those things languishing in your bead stashes. I guess if things get too bad we could send you care packages.
    Re: toad jewelry: i think little toady bracelets are they way to go – they have no necks, and definitely no ears…

  31. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Alice! And Merchick You are so right I do have a lot of languishing beads that are begging for attention! Care Packages! That’s an idea! Toady bracelets I like that! I did check for toads in my stash but sadly I have none. Your are right! No neck or ears, legs and fingers only.

  32. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    How large is your prison? Got room for a bunch of us? I’ve tried to restrict my self to only buying findings and such necessities. No beads, neither glass nor wood nor stone….No wire but that’s ok cause I got a huge amount of that stashed away for a rainy day….like we have rainy weather this time of year in California. :D

    Toady bracelets sound wonderful. Too bad they can’t wear rings on their little toes. Or can they? Jump rings! for Toady toes! Wah Hoo!

  33. Eeka Mouse
    Eeka Mouse says:

    snicker, snicker, snort! jumprings on toady toesies!

  34. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    This entire post is cracking me up, Dawn!!! ROTFLMAO You and Martha are to be admired for going public with your prison term…..everytime I try to do this, I don’t tell anyone — then when I slip up, no one ever knows! 8O Well, I know and my hubby does once the credit card bill arrives. :( Oh, and The Amazing Shelby knows, but since she is my trusted sidekick she is sworn to secrecy. ;)

  35. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Of course, AquaKitty knows, too — he sees all and knows all…..there is NO hiding anything from him!!! 8)

    SpicyChick AKA Ginger says:

    I just want to tell all of you that you have made me smile tonight. I’m envisioning some brilliantly bedecked beaders behind bars (try saying that 10 times fast). I’ve had some rough months…but you all have given me some good moments. I like the pick, by the way!

  37. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Ladies! Little round Chick, oujr prison is quite large and comfy. Want to join us? And Merchick great idea rings for toadies!

  38. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Lynn I know Shelby will keep a secret. Aquakitty is the see all know all and most likely spying on us so we gotta be good. Can’t hide those CC bills at all now can you. And Ginger I am laughing now just imagining Martha and I Bedecked in beads behind bars.

  39. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    LMAO here! Oh, poor dear Beaders! As a fellow beadaholic, I need to reserve my space now!!!

  40. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    We are waiting for you MBC, your spot is on reserve.

  41. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    :D If only beads grew on trees….. hmmmm, wouldnt that be a lovely pick?

  42. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I would love a bead tree. Got any idea where to but the seeds or plants?

  43. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Dawn, I just picked one for you! 8)

  44. Cj w aka Slacker Chick
    Cj w aka Slacker Chick says:

    I pick bead prison. I too have had to abstain from purchasing bead for a while and I am starting to go into withdrawal.
    Cool pick for the feelings.

  45. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Hey – we were talking about Toad Jewelry, and even as we typed, Atomic Toad was uploading a bunch of cool designs…

  49. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I will hav eto check out her Toad Jewerly! I misunderstood. Martha and I are on a toad kick!

  50. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    I’m seeing toads everywhere! I went on a nature walk with my children. There was a log jutting out of the water. I thought it was a toad! 8O

  51. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I think the toads have left the garden or they are doing a good job of hiding. Martha are we done with toad bracelets now? Tomorrow we cound beads!

  52. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    Oh no! That’s a calamity! I think that pack of wild coyotes had toadies for dinner the other night. 8O

  53. sunny chick
    sunny chick says:

    I will gladly count beads with you, my friend. As long as they are not those tiny little delicas.

  54. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Deal! No delicas unless a machine does it!

  55. Cj w aka Slacker Chick
    Cj w aka Slacker Chick says:

    After much reading and thought I have come to the belief that it is not a regular bead prison but actually a well disguised bead mental facility that all our husband wish to place us in.

  56. Pam E aka funky tulip
    Pam E aka funky tulip says:

    thanks for the laughs, ladies! and the fortitude. I’d also been planning on working from my stash and holding off on beads for a while …. sooooo glad I have company!

  57. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    CJ, I think you’re right about that! LOL

  58. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Just read the last few comments that I missed! I so agree with you Cj I think my husband would love to commit me or forever take away my credit card. I am trying to work from my stash and found things I forgot I had! Glad to bring smiles and laughs out of this! Everyone needs a chuckle or atwo and look how good you feel after a good laugh!

    Deb D Grammy Chick says:

    From toadies and toesies to wild cyotes,
    From coffee and chocolate to wine…
    Beaders in prison, brilliantly bedecked,
    Eventually all will be fine!

    Bead bracelets, bead stashes,
    And great big bead trees.
    I think that I’d like to have one of those, Please.

    Isn’t it great we’re addicted to beads?!?!
    I can’t wait to see where all of this leads!!!

    8) LOL!

    J Yee smart chick says:

    Dawn, I’m chuckling in recognition of the dilemma that you and your friend Martha share, cuz I’ve been in that same prison myself, finishing grad school and being careful so that I could make sure the last remaining tuition and other basics were covered – ROTFLMAO too, ouch – I have plenty of gorgeous beads at home, just waiting the right kind of inspiration – and I still want more, ha ha 8O… Deb, your poem is brilliant, thank you!!! 8)

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    OMG! Deb that is a FABOULOUS poem! You are a lady of many talents and so ceative! I adore the poem. When I get done with prison I will have to make a necklace in memory of this pick! Thanks Smart Chick! This reminds me of the early years of our marriage we both were laid off and watching our pennies, We had to do McDonalds for our 1st anniversary. WE exchanged cards, they felt so sorry for us someone ran out & brought us a cupcake with a candle on it! Memories! More to come with the bead prison saga.

    Thanks to all for the nice comments on my poetry. It was only inspired by all the great ideas you came up with, and of course, poor Dawn and Martha stuck in Beaders Prison. Please do keep us informed, girls…we’re all here standing by… :D
