    This one is very pretty, too, Debra! Hmmmm — you’re starting to make me thirsty! LOL

    Thank you. Well, at the moment, I’m drinking Presto Prosecco…a bottle I’ve been holding onto for a while. I was going to drink it with the boyfriend, but he’s gone. SO, I’m drinking it by myself. I’ll buy some more tomorrow when I go to Austin. I have a class in the evening plus Bead Brunch in the morning. I’ll make a trip to Whole Foods downtown in between. It’s the FLAGSHIP of the Whole Foods stores.

    Oh, wow, sounds like a great day ahead for you, Debra!!! What do you do at Bead Brunch? Where is it held?

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    It’s at Nomadic Notions, an Austin bead store. Every 4th Sunday of the month, they have a bead brunch where you can get help on projects and buy beads for 20% off 10:00–12:00. I’m playing hooky from church tomorrow and going. It’s truly therapy! I have to sneak there. (Mama thinks I’m at church or playing the organ somewhere)

    Don’t worry — if she calls me or comes online here, I won’t tell!!! ;-)

    I remember you mentioning Nomadic Notions as the place where you take your classes. The Bead Brunch sounds take a lot of fun!!! Does everyone bring food or do they provide it?

    BTW, I have one of those new jade hollow beads you used in your pick, but haven’t decided what to do with it. Have you ever used one?

  7. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    No, but I think it’s absolutely fabulous. I’ve put it in my cart.

    It’s very lovely and intricately carved — I’m sure you’ll love it! :D

    Soft and lovely!

    Bead Brunch sounds like a lot of fun. I might mention it to my local stores. (1/2 an hour away) I don’t think they have any kind of “gatherings”. I love you all, but I don’t have a local bead friend to share my ideas with.

    Bead Brunch and a trip to the Whole Foods Flagship store! – You’re missing church, but that sounds heavenly!!!!! Take us with, in spirit! Love this pick, Debra!

    Very cool!

    I would love to take all of y’all with me! I’m leaving in a few minutes.

    They provide treats and Starbucks coffee, too, Lynn Eileen. I always eat before I go because I don’t want to be tempted to eat anything “bad” for me.

    Mojitos on the beach is what I call a good time!! The peridot flat drops are so perfect in this!

    Lovely pick–I think this is my favorite mojito pick. :-)
    Debra, it sounds like a wonderful day!!! ;) Go have fun.
    Jeanne, I guess we will just need to be your bead budddies. :P Seriously, I wish you had someone local to share bead fun with. I have 3 special beading friends, who are also just very good friends, living near me. I also have my sister (the one who broke her hand). She lives about 120 miles away, but we usually bead when we get the chance. Maybe you will meet someone at one of the shows, or do what I did: Teach a neighbor to bead, and then you will have a friend close by who beads. ;)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Harriet, that’s a great idea! If you don’t have a beading buddy near you, create one out of an existing friend! :D

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Thanks, y’all!

    I beaded all day. Still trying to finish up my homework for tomorrow evening’s class. That’s the last class I’ll have for a while. Also learned how to make some very cool wire earrings. I used some peridot I got at LB…the little tiny ones.
