    So it’s not only in Norway we have this problem?? :-) Nice blue-green mix!

    Great mix of colors, Joyce! Maybe AquaKitty will have to come to the rescue and solve The Case of the Missing Socks! LOL ;-)

    hee hee hee Lynn, you’re making me laugh… okay aquakitty, go solve this case… :)

    ROTFL! Like the jokes put on the popsicle sticks!

    J Yee smart chick says:

    hey Southern chick, I totally understand, I”m ROTFL myself at your joke … oohh better look up the jokes on the popsicle sticks Pick eh??? :)

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    smart chick, you’ll have to create one. I’m not very good at picks, I just look at them with envy!

  8. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    hey Plucky, you DO create some wonderful Picks, I’ve seen ‘em myself – we all have our own sense of style!!! it took me a little while to get going here what with so many chickies doing such awesome Picks…

  9. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Oh, Plucky, I share your pain! It’s a tiny bit intimidating for me to do fresh picks too, with all the talent & creative thinking out there! But really, with such a friendly & receptive crowd, you have nothing to loose! It gets easier after you jump in for a while!

  10. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    yes it can be scary sometimes to consider putting our Picks out for others to see and comment on. and with the new “Garden” feature that LB is putting together soon we’ll be able to share and chat more easily. all of us have our own unique sense of color and what we like to see in jewelry… learning to trust our sense of style as it develops is NOT easy… since it’s human to want others to like what we like too… agree w/ you there Lori, it does get easier after awhile to do Picks esp since the chickies here are so friendly and supportive! :)

  11. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    I’ll try one again soon, it just takes me soooo long! I stare at my pick, debate, make changes, etc.

  12. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Ha, Joyce, i forgot to say how the feldspath, zebra jasper & calsilica look just like knitting! Too cool! The colors blend really well, too!

    I know what you mean about everyone being unique, some picks just jump out at me as something I’d like to make. Others get me thinking of different combinations to use! It’s all good!

    Plucky, I’m slow too! And darn if I can’t figure out how to place things where I want them! Move one thing & they all shift! Gaaa! And sometimes where they are in the pick makes all the difference! I’m that way when I bead too. Try & re-try…

  13. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    Hey plucky, don’t pressure yourself okay??? it does still take me awhile sometimes too, I’m still in awe of the chickies here who do lotsa Picks regularly… and I dunno when/where the inpsiration will come from… sometimes for me it might be when I see gorgeous new beads or when I’m chatting on Picks like now… yeah sometimes that ole “beaders block” comes on… in our case it should be Picks block… aaahhh… hhmmmmhhh – what would that look like in a Pick??? :)

  14. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Picker’s Block! Ha! Ha! A new label!! Thanks so much for your encouragement, Smart Chick! You ARE named well!!

    Unfortunately, I must run now!!
    Take care,Chickies!!

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Right there with you Plucky! Such talented ladies, but also friends.
    “We are supposed to enjoy this, NOT agonize over it.” Just keep repeating that mantra and you will be fine. At any rate it usually works for me. :-)

    Great pick! Love the colors, but you left out the black one that just disappeared. Calling Aquakitty!!!

  17. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    I get “picker’s block” ALL the time, and then something just hits me, and I have to make a pick. I’ll hear a song, read a book or poem, etc., and it will beg to have its own pick. I can’t just sit down and pick. I have to have SOME kind of inspiration.

  18. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Same here Debra.

  19. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    likewise chicky d and happy chick…

    okay happy chick… the list of cases that our hero aqua kitty is needed to solve GROWS daily, minute by minute… such pressure for our hero… :)

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    added our friendly Mersprite to the cast! we’ll find a great job for her! :)

  21. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Aha! does the Pink ballerina Kitty have competition? or are they just co-workers in the pursuit of justice?

  22. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Mersprite has now been referred to as a ‘he’ and as a ‘she’ Clarification is needed..

  23. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Maybe the mersprite goes both ways…

  24. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Possible, but “don’t ask, don’t tell” could come into play, and then we’ll never know.

  25. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    LMAO :) :D :P

  26. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I wonder what Aquakitty thinks about it all? I think he would be the tolerant type, but you never know…. ;)

  27. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Oh my, you ladies are hilarious. Wish I had your sense of humour. But I’m enjoying reading even if I can’t be funny along with you. BTW Love this pick, Joyce.

  28. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    It’s fun, 3K Chick, just let your imagination off the leash and let it play. I know you can, because you make such lovely picks!

  29. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Picks are my quiet side, and I guess I don’t really have a funny side. I’ve always been a loner but I really enjoy this site. It’s an ecperience for me to be able to converse with others. Thanks.

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    My husband just said that it must be a government conspiracy ~ the missing socks that is!! :-D

  31. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    It could be a government experiment in small controlled black hole technology. aargh! :P LOL

  32. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    3K Chick, we are glad you come and visit with us. Sometimes I just feel silly, and I believe laughter is good for us!! :-)

  33. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Maybe the mersprite is from Vegas! LoL! :-D

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

    It’s always good to be silly — glad we can be that way here!!! :D

    Elaine, you might be right about our Mersprite hailing from Vegas! “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is very popular there! ;-)

  35. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Hehehe…I didn’t know he/she was ambidexterous!! :-D I’m just being silly!

  36. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks Harriet. I am so glad I found this site in more ways than one. I do not socialize much because of my hearing so this site has become my entertainment and I love all the conversations and inspirations. Keep up the good work chickies and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lovs ya.

  37. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    By the way, 3K Chick…your picks are beautiful! :-)

  38. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OH — AMBIDEXTROUS — and here I thought we were trying to determine Mersprite’s sexual identity! ROTFL & LMAO Hmmmmm Can I do both of those at the same time? :D Am I being silly now? ;-)

  39. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks, Elaine.

  40. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hi, Evelyn! How are you children doing? :-)

  41. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Make that “your” children — oops

  42. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Lynn…hehehe!! :-D

  43. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks for asking Lynn. My son had a cat scan yesterday but we don’t get the results back for at least a week. Its now a waiting game. Its going to be a long road for my daughter, but I am seeing a bit of an improvement. So, I keep praying that things will get better for both of them.

  44. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I’ll keep them and you in my prayers, Evelyn. I know you said your daughter has children. Are the children staying with you? How are they doing through all this? Does your son have a wife or children?

  45. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Ha ha ha ha!!!! ROFLMAO!!!

    ROTFL+LMAO=ROFLMAO learned that one a while back! Had to have translation though!

    You ladies are a hoot! Mini black hole govt. conspiracy – my son said last night that for every black hole – there is a white hole that creates. Wonder who’s wearing all those socks being launched into space?

  46. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    They must have awfully cold feet, whoever they are! :-D

  47. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I know you are having a tough time, worrying about your kids and trying to help them, and my heart goes out to you. I’m glad you can relax and visit with us here. :-)

  48. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Dizzy Chick, I’m pretty sure it’s the octopoid aliens who are color blind and need lots of socks for their 8 feet. They don’t care if the socks match, they just want to keep their tootsies warm while traveling through space. :-)

  49. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks Lynn. My daughter has two boys, age 15 and 9 and a little girl age 5. My son has two boys age 9 and 5, plus he has two step-children, a girl age 10 and a boy age 8. My daughters boys go to ‘Rainbows’, a program in the schools for split families plus they go to a child psychologist. The children used to live with me but they have been with their mother for the past five months and I go to their home as often as possible to make sure the choldren are okay.

  50. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Yes, 3K Chick, this is a great place to escape to every now and then and think about something else more pleasant. I’ll be thinking of you and your family. Sending big hugs your way. :-)

  51. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Oh, wow! 3K Chick, that’s a big load to carry. We will be praying for you and your family.

  52. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    3K Chick, I am sorry to hear about your kids. I remember reading that late last night, and my heart goes out to you and your family. I hope things continue to improve for your daughter, it can be a long & trying road to “normal”. My prayers are with you. Your son’s condition sounds incredibly complicated. I’m praying that the doctors can find the right treatment for him, and he returns to good health soon.

    I’m glad you have found an escape here too! Nothing like friends to listen to you when you’re down, and lift you up when you need it. My best to you!

  53. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Your children are very blessed to have a mother as caring as you are. Your grandchildren are very lucky, too! I’m sorry you have such a load to shoulder right now — my prayers are with you for peace and an easing of your burdens. I’m glad you can share with us and that you do enjoy your time here on the LB site! :-)

    Such an awesome pick Joyce! And what a great conversation it inspired!

    Thanks Chickies for all the kind words. Well, I’m off to bed this time for sure. Talk to y’all tomorrow.

  56. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE

    J Yee smart chick says:

    Good morning chickies,

    I’m glad to see all the conversations here – 3K, wishing you and your children well as they deal with serious health matters, sending you my good wishes and prayers too!!

    I too am very glad we can chat here about so many kinds of “topics” from what is really serious in our lives, to just being plain ole “silly”!!! the creativity of all involved in the growing saga of that aquakitty is way funny… so imaginative… that mersprite is sure versatile eh??? is mersprite a “he” or “she”… stay tuned for more… sorta feels like one of those unfolding soap operas…
    anyone remember the Carol Burnett show and her soap opera spoof “As the Stomach Turns…” – no I’m NOT saying aquaK’s story is just like a soap opera, it’s very light hearted… kinda like the Muppet show… :)

  60. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hi, Joyce! Yes, I do remember laughing at “As The Stomach Turns” — very funny! I love Carol Burnett!!! Yes, we are very blessed to have found such a forum in which to share with one another — hopefully, when The Garden opens next week, it will be easier to know who is on line and to leave messages for one another instead of waiting until they do a pick or leave a comment. :D

  61. CAS
    CAS says:

    Of course Mersprite could be hermaphroditic, since he/she is part sprite and part fishy. :D

    3K Chick you have all of my good wishes & prayers for a speedy and positive resolution of your family’s health issues. Huge Hugs!

  62. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oooh, Christine, you’ve opened up a whole other line of possibilities……LOL :D

  63. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    3K, not sure what your situation is, but if it involves worrying about your kids’ health, my heart and prayers go out to you. I know what that’s like and it’s no fun.

    As for the rest of you silly chicks, HA! You are all hilarious! I can just imagine the Lima Team reading this and being like, “where do these people come from?!” LMAO!!

  64. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Answer: We come from all over the world!
    (And some of us may be from even farther out! ;) )

  65. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Good answer, Harriet!!! How’s your “cough” this fine day? LOL ;-)

  66. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Doing OK, but might need some of Daddy’s cough syrup just as a precaution. :-)

    Funny thing is : it worked pretty well. Alcohol to make me sleepy, lemon to cut the phlegm,& honey to sooth the throat. In those days, almost all cough syrups had some alcohol in them.

    True story: In college, recovering from the flu, I told my sister-in-law that I wanted some of Daddy’s whisky and honey cough syrup, and that it tasted good. She thought I was nuts, because it tasted terrible. Finally realized HER daddy made it with Jack Daniels high proof whiskey, and THAT was very different!

  67. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    WHOA — that would taste very different!!! You’re right about cough syrups having alcohol in them when we were younger — and they worked! Now we’d probably get reported to the authorities! LOL

  68. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    all the comments about cough syrups w/ alcohol are making me laugh… years ago a secretary in an office I worked in advised me to just mix up some honey, lemon and rum for a cough I had due to a cold… I did do what she said and it worked… yeah… all my friends who know me now tease me cuz I dont drink alcohol… they would all laugh and laugh at this one… wow, Jack Daniel whiskey eh??? :)

    stay tuned for the evolving identity of the mystery side kick mersprite… :)

  69. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Just keep it clean ladies…we don’t want LB to censure us. ;)

    Maybe Mersprite is more like a male seahorse, just very in touch with his nurturing side. :-)

  70. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    So true, Joyce — we don’t want to be kicked out of The Garden before it even opens!!!! LOL ;-)

  71. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    yeah chickies… looking forward to the Garden where we can all chat more easily w/ each other!!! Okay LB look what ya started… that mersprite is quite the sidekick… look forward to the emerging stories, sssshhh… :)

  72. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Do you remember the old cartoons about Sniffles the mouse? I always thought he was so cute!
    We need to work on more info for Mr. Whiskers, so he has a better back story. :-)

  73. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    You’re right, Happy Chick, he has remained a wee bit mysterious, hasn’t he? LOL ;-)

  74. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    We have described him as the landbased side-kick, which makes him pretty brave, because he hangs out with an aquaKITTY!
    Wonder if his power is super speed like Speedy Gonzalez? :-)

  75. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Ooooooh, he could be super-speedy, braver than brave! ;-)
