“Not your average avocodo...”

   

Description from KarenDe-Challenge Chick: Bet you didn't have this combination in your kitchen in the 70s! I like to add dark brown to unakite, but I usually use wood. Now I'll have to try the bronzite (which is my absolute fave anyway!)

    The Challenge Chick rundown:
    First name: KarenDe (like SandraDee from the movie Greece)
    Currently living in central PA, but planning my escape back to my home state of Montana :)
    Teaching my last semester (Composition) at Penn State – and about to embark on ????? Hopefully selling jewelry will be part of it! My first jewelry party for Pandahlia is now officially scheduled for May 2 – I have to actually price and let go of my beauties ;)
    And I have to admit that you have all met my two significant others in picks: Purr Girl (Dahlia) and Pandora. The’re both adoptees from the no-kill animal shelter where I volunteer each weekend.
    So that’s me: An animal loving, book and bead addict, about-to-be-ex-teacher who can’t wait to get back to Big Sky Country!

    College English – I’m impressed. Personally, I prefer my students to be smaller than me!

    KarenDe-Challenge Chick says:

    I live just outside State College, in Lemont. (Fewer noisy/drunk college students to contend with.) And I only leave when I have to tear myself away from all of you to grade papers :( But never fear, my dreams are always full of fresh picks!

  34. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I bet, Gem!! I worked from 10:00 to 7:00 today. Even though I have a fun job, it still gets tiring! lol…. By the way, D. Veeser, is originally from New Orleans, married, with two adult kids!!!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I like a 2 day week!!!!

    Unfortunately, I do remember the 60′s. I feel really old now that some of my students have grandparents my age. And I’m now teaching the children of my former students.

    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    KarenDe,
    Yeah, I know where that is. I think my nephew went to elementary school at Lemont. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in Port Matilda!!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Gem Chick, thanks for your list, now I can update mine! I notice a lot of teachers on the list and I couldn’t help but notice that Funny Chick owns a bead shop (or works in one?) No wonder you come up with so many great picks! :-) If you want, you can add my occupation as a cook in a personal care home in Moose Jaw. I was formerly a Deli manager in a privately owned grocery store up until about a year ago, but it was time to move on to something else besides dealing with the public. :-)

  40. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    That does’nt help!!! (Watching your ex-students grow up) When we started the bead shop it was supposed to be 2 days a week! But, we run the whole store, so we have to set up all the artist classes & do the advertising, arrange everything, & meetings & meetings!!! There are 4 of us all together!!!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I can’t imagine all the work it takes to keep a shop going. with inventory, classes, etc. I don’t think I’d want a shop, but if I’m still at this in a few years, I’ll need a venue for selling my designs.
