    Question all my darling chickies. I asked last night, but I dunno if anyone saw. Does anyone know CJw? she’s my swap person, I have 27 beads/stones, all in sets of 3, but I have no clue what she likes, and nothing in her profile clued me in, I’ve never met or talked to her. This is my first bead swap thingamajiggy, and I don’t want to screw it up. :(

    Ravin, Good Morning – pretty girlie pearls. Just read all ast night’s comments. Can I get a pizza at 7:30. You are so right – no chain makes “real” pizza. I also miss boardwalk pizza from the “Jersey Shore” Oh, and Lindy’s cheesecake. Used to go there when we were in the city. O for crying out loud, it’s breakfast. Guess I’ll go make oatmeal. Anyway, love the pick, hope your sniffly sneezy aches and pains are going away. Love ya.

    I got my swap mate name yesterday from Susan. Need to send beads by 2/25.
    Ravin, don’t stress as to what she likes or doesn’t like. Last swap I got beads that I don’t usually buy and I was thrilled. I can try some new stuff that I wouldn’t normally do…I think getting different beads was way cool!

    Love the girlie pearls! (if I may borrow Linda’s description)

    Like everyone else said -don’t sweat this – it;s for fun. Just send something you would want to use.

    For me, the “stress” is knowing that I should produce something in a fairly reasonable amount of time. I’m still hanging on to one of Linda’s (Diva chick) fabulous pendants since July. I’ve even picked out the beads to go with it. Everything’s bagged and ready to design and still it sits.

    Morning Ravin! CJ sent me beads in the last swap … pearls, sunstone, picture jasper, jade, bloodstone, unikite, coral, what I think is tourmaline, and a bunch of super cool focal beads – fossil coral, muscovite, turquoise, and a varitey of agates. But don’t sweat it sweetie, I’m sure she’ll love what ever you send. The fun is new playthings!! ;)

    Ooooh, Jeanne! I’m jealous!!! I can’t wait till I can afford one of her pendants, she is just….just, amazing! Such beautiful stuff, I would so LOVE to see her do a gothic pendant, like something with black roses, or, bats, spiders, or snakes! Or something Egyptian, like an ankh or…omg…Anubis…I would so sell everything I could possibly sell for a pendant of Anubis!!! I wish I had even just a 16th of that womans talent!!

    Ravin – I bought “Tatiana” just the pendant. Check it out in the design gallery. I have labradorite, pyrite, grayish blue pearls and something called celestite to go with it. Just sitting there in a ziplock.

    Ya know – I bet she’ll design something special for you.

    Wow CAS! She sent some nice stuff! I dunno the names of alot of the beads/stones, but one of the 3-somes I know for sure are handmade glass trade beads. 3 are snowflake obsidian, 3 I think are white jade, some jasper though what kind I’m not sure, some really cool orange beads and orange and white swirled beads,some rough cut rose quartz with holes, and 3 silver thingamajiggies that are really pretty! And 3 small yellowish pearls I believe.

    Ravin, these pearls make a very happy pick, Chick!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Oh – I am definitely keeping mine which is why it’s taking me so long to put it together. (gotta work on the money makers) And the pendant by itself did not break the bank- I was surprised it was so reasonable!

    Ravin, check out Lynda’s site, some of the pendants are totally reasonable. Gorgeous work!!!

    Ravin – what does ‘Goozefrabba’ mean? (from the name, I thought this pick was going to be something from the Scandanavian crowd). And this is so …feminine… are you still feeling feverish??? ;) But it IS pretty!

    I have, and thet are, but still out of my price range right now, My ubby got laid off for no good reason, and my roomies loser of a boyfriend was outta work for 6 months, paying nothing, ans=d living off of us, my roomie is waiting for her disability to go through, but at least contributes with food stamps and helping with the housework and such. Her “Boyfriend” is outta here soon, she can’t stand him any more, and I’ve already informed everyone in the house, including him that if he doesn’t leave in a couple of months like he’s supposed to….I’d make sure that no one ever found the bit’s and pieces that “might” be left of him when I was through with him. My hubby hasn’t been outta work long at all, it was chucklehead that put us in the hole, over $2000 behind in rent, thank goodness my landlady is cool as all get out.

    Ravin, I love your girly pearly pick! I am a pearl whore — have every color, size, & shape there is (I think!)!!! ROTFLOL

    I also agree not to sweat the bead swap choices — I couldn’t participate in the last one, but everyone who did said it was a lot of fun. I’m in this one, though, and am looking forward to getting things I do and/or don’t normally use! 8)

    I received my partner’s name this week. Can’t wait to get them sent to her!!! Tee hee…..
