    Hi Smoky! Sorry I’ve missed you – and all the chicks – the last couple of days – too much to do around the house and I just can’t post and do all the things I need to! Love your pick – I love the rich browns with the vanilla pearls – a must try!!!

    I’ll try to communicate w/u through the google address – I made the nest necklace and posted it on the “nest for chickies” pick (that’s the designated site, yes?)…Can’t wait to do another one! :)

  7. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    thank you – I cannot take credit though! Bonnie contacted Kevin – and this was Kevin’s idea – but I thought it was so awesome, I went straight to gmail and set up an account! Gotta keep all the Chicks feeling safe and secure!

    wow so we just go to g-mail, is there a website for that to do so? while I like the idea I’m hesitating cuz I already have lotsa online stuff to keep up with for school… not sure I wanna sign up for something else I gotta check, sorta like Face Book! ??? just wondering…

    joyce

    OK…I am trying not to leave anyone out…check you gmail accounts, please!

  30. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    OK…y’all let me know if you think the blog site works OK…won’t hurt my feelings if it does not :)

  31. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OK — first, this is a gorgeous pick Smoky Rose! Love the muscovite with all the pearls — very pretty. I noticed that you were able to change your name — congrats! :-) Sorry I missed chatting with everyone this evening — had so much to catch up on. I did set up an account on Gmail — what a great idea. Do we chat there instead of here? My address there is chickyle@gmail.com. How do we get everyone’s addresses? Will they be posted here? I’ll check back here & on my Gmail account tomorrow. So exciting!!!

  32. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Joyce – don’t have to – just the idea of gmail giving an added level of security for Chicks, if there was something we wanted to exchange without the whole wide world being able to see. You don’t have to do the blog… I understand about having a full plate with school! Just another option is all.
    Chicky LE! I’ll gmail you today!

  33. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Smoky -

    every chickie that has been made an author, has also been granted administrative rights on the blog, this should mean that if they wish to remove anything, they should be able to…do you want the blog to be restricted to only LB chickies…if so, each chickie would need to log on to view and post comments…let me know what you think…thanks :)

  34. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Wow, Movie – you’re good at this stuff ;) I am impressed. I think we want to keep it exclusive to the Chicks, right? You’re awesome, lady!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    For what movie chick said, does that mean that I HAVE to have a gmail account?!

  36. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    smoky…you are sweet and thank you…it will be made exclusive to LB chickies…i am glad several of us got on last night so hopefully the rest of the beautiful chickies can directed over there if they wish :)

  37. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    no, you do not have to have a gmail account but you will need to email one of us so that we have your email account to send you an invitation to join the blog, make sense?

  38. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    fantastic! I think exclusivity is best, don’t you? – that’s the security we’re looking for.
    Have a good day – I’ll stop in later, but must fly now :)

  39. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    little chick, are you comfortable with that?

    little chick, do you want parents to have access to the blog as well?

    Bubbly – an blog invitation has been sent to your gmail, please check when you get a chance…thanks.

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I might be able to get a gmail account soon for my business (and for Chicky talk). However just not this second. But I don’t quite understand how this works?! :D

  47. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    since the blog is now private (which is what some of the chickies wanted), you need to be invited to be able to post and view comments, we make everyone an author on the blog so anyone can start a new blog, does that help?

  48. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    so there is a main blog – LB Chickies Nest (with several little blogs, sections, threads or whatever you want to call them organized in some fashion in the main blog)…we decided on date order…i am just being confusing?

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

    I have a question, how do you get a chicky name????

  50. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I’m glad to hear that the blog can be private, Movie Chick. Do I have to do anything on my end to keep it private? I’m just wondering because I posted a picture, etc. and I’m hoping that only the LB Chickies have access! :-) I’ll check back later.

  51. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    I believe you need to go through A Golke -funny chick…maybe comment on one of her picks to let her know you would like one.

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

    Thanks movie chick!

  53. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    nope, I do not think you need to do anything on your end…just remember that you have administrative access so you should be able to change anything…let me know if you run into any problems :)

  54. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    you are welcome…from one Susan to another!!! :)

  55. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Hi again Movie Chick,! (Haven’t quite been able to pull myself away from the computer yet) One more question; there is an area there that I saw in administrative access something about making it private…is that a spot where I should hit private to be sure?

  56. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Under permissions?

  57. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    I already set it to private…after I changed it to private this morning…I had to log-on to get to the blog…did u?

  58. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    It is under the following section where it asked about following privately or not. Now that I have re-read it, it sounds as though it is for following purposes, so I think I’ve answered my own question! :-) And yes, I did have to sign in for it. Thanks for your help; I’m a bit computer illiterate!! :-)

  59. Kitty Chicky Cat
    Kitty Chicky Cat says:

    Blog? Private? Are they making changes to this site or….? ??!!!?

  60. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Nope, just us Chickies! Ask Movie Chick for an invite and she’ll tell you all about what’s happening! :-)

  61. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    No, kitty chicky cat, some of the chickies just wanted a more private place to chat…so a blog called LB Chickies Nest has been set up :) …if you would like access, please send me an email to me at movie.chick.susan@gmail.com

  62. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    belly chick – your welcome and I do not mind helping…anytime :)

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Ok, I’m really not at all familiar with computer/techno stuff. Technophobe!
    How do I get a gmail account? Or should I just e-mail one of you with my regular
    e-mail address? Is that safe and secure?
    As you can tell, I have no idea what I’m doing. Help!

  65. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    to get a gmail account, type http://www.gmail.com in the address bar just like you do for limabeads…then just click on the link that comes up…or you could use the email address you already have, the one you use to log in for lima beads…the only people that will have access to whichever email you use, will be the LB chickies…make sense?

  66. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    if you want to use a current email address, send me an email from that address to movie.chick.susan@gmail.com

  73. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Mary Sweet Chick! You can do it, Lady!!! I have faith! If I could do it – heavens, anybody can do it – believe me!
    - by the way, ordered my digital camera last night! C’mon, we’ll head into the later part of the 20th century together! :) – besides, I’d love to see ya on the blog or gmail!

  74. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    poor Movie Chick has a new part time job – getting the Chicky Clutch onto gmail and the blog. Better you than me! I’m pretty impressed that I can operate LB! ;)

  75. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    you figured out how to post to a new blog last night…I am impressed!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I’m getting kinda confused?! (cheese I should understand all this technology)! So, did the LB team change the site somehow, or will we just communicate through gmail? And will we still do fresh picks?! Well, I hope I’ll be able to get a gmail account (I’m still talking to mom & dad)!

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

  84. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    luv2bead…no, LB did not change anything, some of the chickies just wanted a more private place to chat…picking and commenting remain the same on the LB site

  85. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Ok! Now I understand!! Thanks!

  86. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    luv2bead…an email account is needed so that I may issue you an invitation to the blog…several wanted a different email just for the chickie purpose so they have created one from using gmail accounts

  87. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Ok! Maybe I’ll do a “Chicky” email & then I can go ahead and still do a “business” one for me!!! (can I have 2 gmail addresses?)

  88. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    anytime, luv2bead, you are welcome :)

  89. movie chick aka susan

    OK CAS, It’s CINCO DE MAYO.
    I’m Texan, trust me on this one.

    Little Chick, maybe you could just offer to let your parental units come look at our gmail blog site whenever they wish. I don’t think any of us would dream of doing or saying anything that they would find any more objectionable than what is already on our LB stuff.
    Most of all, we all want to support and encourage your dreams, our talented young chick.

  101. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    hmmmm there’s an argument for both – thinking by looking at LB, we can see at a glance who is working on their computer…. and then see if they wanna go chat?…

  102. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    No rush, Little Chick – whenever you talk with your folks is fine – if mom and dad say NO, that’s fine too – we’ll all always be here! We gotta keep an eye on and and eye out (as in watching your talent) for Little Chick!!!!

  103. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thanks, Movie Chick! I figured out how to check my emails on gmail (I know, I’m techno-challenged!). Now, on to the Nest! :-)

    KarenDe-Challenge Chick says:

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I know I will want to keep toggling back and forth between the Nest and LB – after all, I’ve got to keep picking! I’m still working towards my 50th pick. :)

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Ok! Well, I won’t be here tonight :( but I’ll keep checking in until the last minute (before we leave)! Then of course I’ll be back tomorrow!

  106. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    It’s all good, Little Chicky – not sure I’ll be there tonight either. I want to try my hand at the Nest project. I have to restring a bracelet for a coworker – and am having dinner with my cousin thurs night – and want to make somehthing to ‘show off’ that will match my outfit. I’ll be popping in @ LB, but the blog may take more focus than I will have to share for tonight.

  107. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Make sure you get to show how your nest turns out (after your digital camera arrives)! I’ll be at my brother’s baseball game tonight (and all Tuesday & Thursday nights for a long time)…maybe I’ll have to take some half made earrings to finish!!!

  108. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    it will be awhile before I make my nest…do not have the correct wire to make it…the ones I have seen from y’all look amazing :)

  109. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m not 100% sure I do either – I have left over wire from 2 rosary projects – that may be too thin a gauge – and some less expensive stuff that I got to play on a ….oh, what is it called… JIG, with… hoping that is what I need. I will show you guys – after Movie Chick teaches me how to use the camera ;) ! Enjoy the game, Little Chick!

    Hi Everyone!

    I just wanted to let you know that we have some special in store for all of you. Steve and I have been working on it for the past couple weeks. It’s going to be a special section where you can chat, send messages back and forth, share photos of your designs, have your own little blog, etc…

    It’ll be built right into Lima Beads and it’ll be here very soon :)

    Kevin

    OOOOHHHH… dear chickies, kevin and steve,

    Wow… love to see all the enthusiasm about getting into this separate gmail “chickies” blog but like little chicky, torn between anything that takes me away from the L.B. site and “Fresh Picks”…
    Steve and Kevin, you guys rock!!!!! You’re truly Super “gems” – sorry my apologies couldn’t resist that bad pun, looking forward to whatever you guys have in store for us as a more private place to chat, exchange messages, thank you!!!!! :)

  124. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hey, Smoky Rose, wherever the Chicks decide to flock or roost, I’ll be there! :-)

    The LB idea is great because we can stay here & continue to do Picks, shop (once we’re allowed to again! LOL), & chat in private! :-) Actually, I just think they would miss us too much. AWWWWW

  125. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Super!!!! thanks Kevin and Steve!!!!
    We were not so happy about leaving the LB site, and were having to figure how to toggle back and forth. You are the absolute best, and make us feel like we have real friends who listen to us at Lima Beads!

  126. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Hey little chick! You probably already know this, but just in case: the Hefty zip lock bags, size 2.5 gallon will hold a bead board, a few tools and supplies, and not spill your stuff all over the car. It also helps to lay one of the bead cloths over your bead board to help keep things from sliding around. This works pretty well once it is zipped up and the extra plastic is sort of folded over the board. I had a commercial board w/a fitted lid, but it has not held up well. (One of the catches to the lid has already broken off, and can’t be replaced because it’s plastic. The nice foam tray with the channels built in is nice though.) :-)

  129. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    The other site could still be the answer for those who want to exchange beads and need to pass sensitive info. like addresses. That way we chicks could still feel safe.

    And you too Movie Chick, for figuring out the start of our technology foray :)

    Hi!!! You Chicks are sure busy!!! Movie Chick, how nice to have someone that can figure this all out!

    I already have a gmail acct. goodwitch62@gmail.com. Someone asked where we live? Kansas – south central. Hence the gmail name. :)

    Kevin & Steve, that’s great! I had wondered if there was a way to do some sort of private messaging here on the site. I have used that on shirt.woot. Sounds like you are already working on it!

    Cool stuff here @ Lima Beads!

    Hi Girls!
    don’t know how long I’m gonna hang out – am I ever tired. Up late on LB last night and Sunday night, too.
    but so nice to see everybody!

    Thanks! My sister & I play good witch & bad witch with our kids when it’s time to clean up @ Grandma’s house. They run screaming through the house as we chase!

    Smoky Rose…I can sympathize! I think we’re being worn out by our earlier time zone chicks :)

    Dizzy–that’s adorable! What a fun way to get cleaning done :)

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Me too, Smoky. Had to crash this afternoon and need to give a bath now, but will be back later. Found lots of new Picks to comment on, and still need opinions on the nests I’ve completed. Back later!

  142. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    ah, that’s it! it’s the midwestern and mountain range chicks keeping us up late!

    I heard that!

    Smoky Rose says:

    problem is, this is about the time when I start to get a second wind and get a little burst of energy…. next thing you know, it’s 11. last night was later than that. Where do you hail from, Dizzy? – just ballpark.

  145. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    lol Dizzy Chick!

    Same here Smoky, same here…it’s always “ok, 10 more minutes and then you’re done young lady!”…but it’s never just 10 more minutes…

    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m going out Thursday night after work for dinner. I’m having dinner with my cousin. I have not seen him, sadly, since my dad’s viewing. (11 years ago – nearly to the day….) I wanted to make a necklace and earrings – and be able to get excited about all of this to him. Not to show off bad, to say, hey! Look what I’m doing – and I love it! Problem is, I can’t figure out what to wear – so, I sure as heck don’t know what to make… but ought to at least get a plan together tonight.

  147. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Hmmm…I just checked out your more recent picks Smoky…stones from Remembering the Day would be a nice touch to match your memories of the last time you saw him…Warm Feelings and Fresh Air are both lovely as well….just a thought :)

  148. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Interesting idea, Downy! this is not sad – this is happy, despite it being so long – and the ocassion that it was that we last sat and talked. my cousin is signif older than I. He is old enough to be my dad! (as my dad was the baby of a large family – and my cousin from one of the oldest sibs) …. so, he knew a man that I never did…. from years before my dad even met or married my mom. I can’t wait to hear some stories – and ofcourse, too much time and space has come between us – this is a chance for a new beginning – and old memories both… I’m excited. I like your idea, Downy! I’m gonna dig thru my gemstone beads right now!

  149. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Good luck with the beads! I have been finding it very difficult to begin lately–so many ideas running through my head…I end up organizing for a while and then am too tired to begin anything! It’s wonderful that you will be able to reconnect…I, too, have lost contact with so many relatives…it’s the crazy lives we lead, you know? Too much work…I’m always worried that I’m missing out on what is truly important in life. I hope that you’re able to share some of the old but learn much of the new…that is exciting! :D

    Sounds like it should be a nice evening.
    Pick your gems first – then search for an outfit to match. That’s what my friend does – first she gets one of my new creations, then she buys a sweater or blouse to match – lol.

    btw – to the keeper of the blog – I’m in… JeannesGems.GemChick@gmail.com

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I’m baaaack!

    Smoky – I think we might be related, except an 11:00 bedtime is early for me! Not that I function well at all without sleep, but I cannot go to bed when I’m beading. I don’t feel a rush, but I just don’t get tired. Was up till 5 am Saturday/Sunday! Then 1:00 Sun/Mon. And yesterday was a marathon day with school stuff (work & kids). Today was crash & burn.

    I’m from Kansas, grew up near KC, and now south central, about an hour from Wichita. Love it here!

    What a neat thing to get together with your cousin. Hearing stories from the past really gives new perspective to your memories. Enjoy your evening! I agree with Jeannes Gems, beads first, then outfit!

  152. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Downy Chick, I think organizing makes me less creative! I’ve done the same thing, since I had no place to put the stockpile of beads I have, they all went into a basket. After sorting & putting them away (by color) I couldn’t think of what to do! So frustrating!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Organizing helped me find beads I’d forgotten about. I found some great boxes at AC Moore for organizing. They’re called photo keepers. There’s five snap lock boxes to fit 4×6 photos and they fit into a bigger stackable box. Just need to get labels and I’ll be all set.

  154. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    I am so glad that I am not along in doing that Dizzy Chick! I feel like I can’t get to work until I’ve organized, but then I’ve lost all energy when I’m done! I keep telling myself that I should buy a house with an abnormally large craft room and then I can put things all over the place and not worry so much about it!

    Lori – do you teach too?

  156. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Nope, not that fast on my feet! I started out as a graphic designer, (small time) but we live in a small(er) town, & when our kids were born I got to stay home. I really had lost the taste for working for “clients” & had an offer to work as a library aide. It suits me just fine, enough contact with the kids, but nothing to “take home” with me when the day is over!

    I know what you mean. My husband’s on my case – we went to the garden center – He’s already planted “his plants” and wants to know when I’m gonna do mine. I’m tired after waiting up for Sam till midnight. and I still wake up at 6 am

    I went to Lowes and got some plants for my office – and some canna bulbs for the yard – but nothing else. I have to digest everything now and make a flower plan – maybe buy em tomorrow… maybe…. Can I do anything with out loooong deliberation? ;) Well, I grabbed the coffee without thinking about it too hard :)

    Excellent advice, Plucky! So good, we should post it on one of her picks, I think. I hear ya – we gotta keep an eye out for the Little one! Good Stuff!
