“My LB Anniversary!”

   

Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: I place my first order with LB last year on Nov. 30. And then twice more by Dec. 16. I found LB while searching for what my local bead store calls lemon topaz. The lemon quartz is a perfect match. As is my relationship with LB and all the chicks!!!
These are the beads from my first orders(or very similar). The heart represents how I feel when I'm playing with my beads or chatting with you all!

    Thanks, Susan!

    I ‘try’ to make sure that I use the beads I buy before I purchase any more, does not happen all the time ;)

    Oh, Susan, I’m afraid it may be an addiction – I definitely do not use up my beads before buying more. I’m not sure my husband knows the extent of my stock. I’m trying to be good and work from stock, but sometimes….

    oh yes, it is an addiction! :D but so far my kid still had food to eat and roof over her head!

    Well – that’s why I started selling!
    But, then I feel pressured to produce.

    Thank you Debbi and Alice!

    What a neat idea for a pick Jeanne!

    I only wish I could wait till I use my beads before buying more!! If my hubby only knew the extent of my inventory……
    now I feel quilty about the order I just placed!! :| I really need to work from what I have in stock.

    Congrats on 1 year!! I never use up all my beads before I buy more. My excuse is I need more beads to compliment the ones I have!! ;) :D 8)

    Happy LB Anniversary To You!

    Happy LB Anniversary Dear Jeanne…..
    Happy LB Anniversary To You!!!!!!!

    And many more……. :D

    We might want to observe a moment of silence and thank God that this is only typed and not actually sung to you, Jeanne!!!!! ROTFLOL

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hey, Little Chick! I really like the way you think! :D I always figure that my beads will get lonely if I don’t hurry up and buy them some new friends, right? ;)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    BTW, Jeanne — Bob thinks I have enough LB beads to open up a branch of Lima Beads in Indiana!!! ROTFLOL

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Yeah! You don’t want lonely beads!!! I just have to keep buying more containers!!! They’re stacked about 3 feet high (actually a little (maybe several inches/or another foot) over that)!!! :D

  16. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I just bought some more containers the other day and Bob said, “I hope these are for all the beads you already have and not for ones you haven’t bought yet.” Busted! LOL

    I definitely like the way you think, Nicole!
    Larry doesn’t say anything about how much I have. Except when I have to clean off the kitchen table so we can eat – LOL

    I’ve been steadily moving my teaching journals off the bookshelf so I can store my beads!

    Nicole – maybe you could post the pics on the fresh daily blog on organizing ali’s beads. That’s all about storage.
    why did you straighten it up – you’ll make me look bad!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    you posted while I was typing.
    You ARE organized! It does make me look bad.
    Thank you for sharing!
    Love the necklace!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Mary, that’s a great idea — although we’d have to share! ;)

    Nicole, you are sooooooo organized!!!! My stash started out that way……LOL…..Yikes!!!

    I love your necklace the the fab wire work!!! :D

    Thanks girls!!!! I have to frequently clean it to keep it that organized…I usually have wire clippings laying all over the floor (I do clean those up at east once a week though)!!!! I also posted this in the FD blog!!! :D

    My problem is that I store everything upstairs,but do most of my beading downstairs, so everything migrates. It’s amazing I’m able to create anything.

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Everyone thinks it’s crazy that I sit on the floor (indian-style) with my back facing the light. I just say if I was facing the light it would reflect off the metals and shine in my eyes!!!

    LOL I can picture you walking down the stairs with your hands filled with all your tools and beads!! ;)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    It’s quite comical at times. Actually, the bigger problem is that I don’t bring it back up. :D
    I don’t know how my husband lives with it.

    I am just as bad in my hoard. I have THREE of those rolling cabinets…with three of those plastic containers in each drawer..and then a couple stacked on top…all this in my kitchen…needless to say..we don’t eat at the table much! I’m glad I’m not the only one who is into bead hoarding!! Never can have too many beads or bead magazines!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I really want some more!!! They’re very useful!!! You sure aren’t the only bead hoarder!!!!! :D

    Chicky Suz aka Susan Z says:

    My name is Chicky Suz and I too, am a beadaholic! Hey, Nicole, it never occured to me to write the color of the beads on the side of the organizers. I just relied on the fact that you can see through the containers. I am constantly shifting them around to see what is in there! Great idea!! Looks like we all have the same affliction!!

  41. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Hi Susan!!! I used to separate my beads by type of beads (gemstones, pearls, swarovski crystals) but then I decided to completely change everything and organize them by color or metal (which took hours)! I like it better this way. And it does help to write the color on the box because you can’t always see through (it would depend on how dark the bead would be)! :D

    Great pick Jeanne! It seems we are all addicted to beads and collecting them. I am new at this so my stock isn’t that large but I fear what may come… :-D

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Before I found LB it wasn’t that big…but now (months later) it’s grown rapidly (not a bad thing…right???)!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  44. Chicky Suz aka Susan Z
    Chicky Suz aka Susan Z says:

    Or how high you stack the containers, Nicole. Good idea!!

    All LB’s fault we have such large stashes!!! LOL! Happy Anniversary Jeanne! pretty pick! I looked to see when I found LB, it August 2008 and I ordered 3 weeks in a row!!!

    I looked back into my account to see when my first arder was. December 2007!!
    2 years!! Had no idea I had been running around this place so long. Time flies when you’re having fun! :-D

    I thought I would make a pick from the stones in my first order but most are no longer in stock and haven’t been for a LONG time! Hey LB! Can you get more of the Green Prase please!!? It was very nice!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Mine was in April 2009. And I’ve ordered at least once (usually twice) every month (except July because I was gone so much) since then! :D

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Glad we all had such fun reminiscing about our LB roots!
    It’s kind of scary to go back through my order history.

    Kevin, you were instantly my favorite site to shop for beads. Seriously no one else ships as quickly! And I’m never disappointed. Unfortunately, I can’t get everything I need here, but I do keep coming back , again and again and again.

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

    OK, I looked back and my first order shipped at the end of March, 2009.
    Ditto to every thing Jeanne said in the comment above! :D
    Jeanne, I can see why you are doing so well. You order great beads!!! LOL :D

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Harriet – it’s funny, though. I still have that red jasper rice necklace in stock. I don’t know why. I love it. Guess I’ll just have to enjoy it myself.

    Little Round Chick says:

    I guess it is time to confess. I’m Little Round Chick and I’m a beadaholic. My addiction started about 4 years ago and has progressed very rapidly. They say confession is good for the soul but so is beading! I try to control the impulse to buy, buy, buy but I am weak and continue to purchase beads willy nilly. What ever shall I do?

  55. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    I just checked my ordering history. I made my first LB purchase November 14, 2005. I’m over the 4 year mark!
