“V(ery) I(mportant) C(hick)”


Description from CAS: I had the FANTASTIC good fortune of getting together with Debbi - Sparkle Chick this Wednesday! I had to pass by her home town coming back from my Nana's, and suggested we meet for lunch. Debbi kindly invited me to her home, and we had the MOST FABULOUS time imaginable (yes beads were involved). Before we knew it we'd been together for SIX AND A HALF HOURS!!! I can't wait to get together again, especially to meet at Ivy's new restaurant with some of the New England/New York Chickys!

I’m so glad you both got to meet in person, aaahhh… sure wish there were more chickies out west… those rhododendrons are gorgeous, a very lovely flower indeed, your Pick reflects the beautiful flowers and sunshine you must have had that day very well!!! :)

    WOW — what a fun time the two of you must have had!!! I’m shocked, though, to hear that beads were involved. LOL :D What a great pick to celebrate your first (of many, I’m sure) fun times together!!! Thanks for posting a pix, too — it’s so much fun to see who I’ve been talking to! I’m glad you told me who is who — you both look so happy and sparkly, I wouldn’t have known who was Sparkle Chick and who was Chicky Babe! LOL ;-)

    oh, beautiful, pic & pick! I am so glad you got to have fun & oh, of course play with beadies! Very cool!! :)

    They’re both pieces that I made. Debbi liked the necklace so very much (yellow being a favorite color of hers), that I just had to give it to her. She gave me a necklace, bracelet and lovely pair of earrings. And of course we traded beads, and then shopped for MORE! :D

    What FUN! I may be officially jealous now. I don’t think any other chicks live closer to the Permian Basin than Austin, and that is many hours away.
    I do live in the West, Smart Chick, but not near as far west as Seattle. :-)

    CAS says:

    Hey, maybe “LB” can post a “Chicky” locator map in the Garden … :)

  9. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I like the idea of a Chick map! I’ve been writing down where my Chick friends live (next to their names on the list you posted, Christine!) and that helps. Sometimes, though, I have to Google it to find out where a city is. If a person didn’t want to be on the map, LB could have an “op out” feature for their privacy. It would be fun to know the Chicks’ birthdays, too. :D

  10. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    WE COULD ALSO DO A LITTLE BIO INFO AND LOCATOR SAFELY ON OUR CHICK BLOG. Hmmm..that was with caps lock on, oh, well. ;)

  11. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Just saw your note Eileen, and I think we could safely list birthdays on LB. If in doubt, we could ask the LB guys what they think. I know internet security is a big deal.

    This is a very pretty pick and a great story!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I thought for a moment you were shouting at us, Happy Chick!!! LOL ;-)

    Great idea! I’ve thought it would be nice to be able to share “real” e-mail addresses, home addresses, or even phone numbers (if we chose), but didn’t want to post them for all the world to see. :-)

  14. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Sorry about that, just too lazy to re-type all that. Remember, it was our LB guys who suggested the Chick blog for private info. :-)

  15. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    You’re right, Happy Chick! I keep forgetting that we’re safe on the Chick blog. I wonder how The Garden will be set up for chats?

  16. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    He said there would be an opportunity for private chat there, but not sure how that will work. Hope it’ not too technical, because I’m a tecno-phobe on new computer stuff. :-(

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Me, too! Hopefully, it will be VERY user-friendly!!! LOL

    What a lovely pick CAS. Glad the both of you had chance to meet and had a great time. Lovely jewelry, too! Love your idea about the Chicky map, Chicky LE :D .

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Where are you located, Lilly? I know your pick today said you overlook Lake Michigan.

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    I can just imagine how much fun you both must have had, discussing silver moonstone, Vintaj brass, and wire wrapping techniques. LOL And there were actual BEADS involved?! Now THAT is what I call a party!! And what a great pic/pick! :)

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Never mind, Lilly! I just read your answer on the other pick! LOL

    KPJEWELS says:

    I also vote for a locator map. It would be great to know how far away everybody is from our own location. A super great idea, why didn’t I think of that. LOL.

    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Hey, I know those two gals! Great pick Christine!

    I love the colors you chose for this pick as well as the pewter pieces.

    And as you know Christine, you are welcome anytime! What a great treat it was to spend that time together!

    CAS, beautiful pick with a great story to tell! How cool to see a friendship blossom in person – thanks for posting a photo!

    The necklaces are lovely, and you both look great wearing them! Oh, to meet someone that speaks “beads”! The map is a great idea, I was trying to mentally locate everyone & my geography isn’t so good!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Oh…I’m so jealous!! Great time had by all and a great pick came out of it!! :-)
    I love the idea of a Chick Map and such in the ‘Garden’! What a great idea! :-)
