“Plucky and Cotopaxi's order”

 

Description from RubberT aka Plucky Chick: What a treat! We didn't order ALL of these...some we already had and we "traded". We ordered the copper green opal, brandy opal, rainbow amazonite together! We'll get together next week for some serious beading! Sunday we are going to the Colorado Bead Society meeting in Monument, CO!

    Oh, Southern Chick, we would love you to come! Can LB create an “instant transport” system for us? Seems like there is nothing they can’t do, so why not ask?

    I don’t know….it might make the LB site run a little slow for a day or 2 while they work it out…what the heck! I say LB should do it!!! I am willing to make the sacrifice so they can make us a transporter system. ;)

    Yeah, I like the way we ask for something and are thrilled to get it, but whine during the transition! LB has spoiled us!

    Southern Chick says:

    Yeah, while they’re transporting us…it slows them down…so they can’t have their sale until they transport us back!?!? Agreed?

    Hey…Monument is where my mom went to school! Grade school and high school. She had a graduating class of like 10 people. I love it…. they have a beading society? That is hilarious! I’ll have to tell her that. She is in CO right now visiting her brother and sister! Cool beads. I would love to trade some of my Black Silver Leaf. I got w

    I think she’s leaving on Saturday. She’s been in Colorado Springs, Denver, and they rented a place by some lake near Denver. My grandparents and great grandparents owned a bunch of land in Black Forest. They lived there until my grandad died in a log cabin house they built…no running water, outhouse…that kind of cabin. I think my grandma finally sold the remaining land in the mid to late 80′s. Grandad passed in 1982. Very cool area!

    I meant to say that she’s been there since last Tuesday.

    Amazing, Chicky Bear! Cotopaxi left my house to go visit her brother in the Black Forest area! It’s beautiful land, so I hope your grandma got a fair price for it!! I think you should come visit your mom’s relatives some time soon!

    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    I don’t think she got as much as she should have. But, the house they built where hers was is made from the same kind of wood, faces the same way, has the same sandy drive way. And, they named the road right in front of her house after her…Crosslen Lane. So, it will always be special to us and for once, we know the people a road was named after. My sister and I are talking about going with her next summer. She goes every year…70 years old and drives herself there in one day. She is a hoot!

    Chick envy — I am sooooo green right now! You two girls sound like you had a blast!!! :D And what fun to be able to place an order together, too! Looking forward to more late-breaking bulletins from you…… LOL :D

    Hi, Sue!!! I can’t believe I came on here at just the right time to catch you in between trips! :D

    You and Plucky look like you are having waaaaay too much fun! I love what you’ve made! But where is Tad’s project? LOL ;-)

    This was such a fun day!!!! When Cotopaxi emails me the pics (hint, hint) I’m betting that tad will make an appearance!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hi, Plucky! Glad to see you on here! What are you making in the photo? I’ll be curious to find out what Tad was off working on when this pix was taken, too! Or was he picking out some more beads for you and Sue to use? LOL ;-)

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Hi, Lynn! We are using a loom (patent pending from Rick)to make a bracelet! We got to take the loom home after the class! Yes, Tad is very busy behind the scenes! He had to get our LB order in the mail before he could come out and play!

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Tad is a great director, but not very creative! he left it all up to Plucky and me, but you know him – he’ll take all the credit… :D but we just can’t stay mad at him for long!

  23. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    The bracelet Sue is holding looks beautiful! Plucky, your bracelet is beautiful, too! It appears to still be on the loom — does that mean you still have more length to add to it or just have to finish the edge? I’ve never done loom weaving. How great that you got to keep the looms!

    BTW, I thought Tad might have been taking a potty break, but I was too polite to ask. LOL ;-)

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Tad was on a break of some kind! LOL! I had never done any loom weaving either and mine is still on the loom because I was SLOW!!!

  25. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Which do you do faster, Plucky — loom weaving or fresh picking? ROTFLOL ;-)

  26. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    That’s a tough one! At least we didn’t have too many bead choices for our loom project, but if I did another one, I would spend hours picking beads for it!

  27. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I know what you mean — sometimes I spend as much time choosing the beads as I do putting the piece together! LOL

  28. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Lynn, i know what you mean! my table is strewed with beads – i put a couple together, and get sidetracked because something else catches my eye – and i start something else entirely! thank goodness all we had were seed beads, and only about 15 colors, and we could only choose 2 of them!

  29. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I’m like a kid in a candy store when I get near beads!!! I like this one, and that one, and oh! give me 2 of those, and a couple of that….. ROTFLOL

    I’m just as bad at home, believe it or not! I start looking for one thing and find something else that distracts me and next thing you know, I’ve got beads spread out everywhere!!! My poor Bob….. ;-)

    Plucky the picture in the middle of this pick is the one I ran a copy of. I have since found a few more posted of the two of the Lima Beaders dasterdly duo, partners in laughter and fun beaders. Not sure where the comment was yet. Don’t worry, I am not sure I can even remember what I said to look for it lol. Do that far too much anymore. Have too much rolling around in the cobwebs of my mind.
