    Southern Chick says:

    What’s with the barnyard theme? Is there someplace on LB that gives a theme challenge for the day?

  2. CAS
    CAS says:

    The Chick Challenge of the day is issued by any Chick at the start of the day simply by announcing a challenge. This morning I called a “Barnyard” challenge, for picks with a “Barnyard” theme.

  3. Cathy H Chocolate Chick
    Cathy H Chocolate Chick says:

    Lately some of the chicks have been issuing challenges to everyone to use a certain bead, theme, or something unusual that we don’t ordinarily use. Today was a “barnyard” challenge.

  4. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    I guess I’m up and gone to work and have just missed them. Is there anywhere you can go to read all the emails of the day, or when they scroll off the bottom of the page are they gone? I’m still learning about the site…Thanks for your help.

  5. Cathy H Chocolate Chick
    Cathy H Chocolate Chick says:

    You can always look at the “snapshots” and all of the comments are there. Sometimes it takes me hours to go through them all. LOL

    Cathy H, glad I’m not the only one who spends hour “oohing and ahhing” over all the daily fresh picks and fresh pick chatter! Sometimes I want to give a blanket response to all the chickies and say something…I think LimaBeads needs to create a spot called “Chickie Chat”! We could still chat on LimaPicks, but we need a central communication place for some things- like announcements of challenges!!

  7. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    I agree! Sign me up…Sometimes, I feel like the chatter is too disjointed and I don’t catch all the good chit-chat! What happened to the idea of a chickie charm? I read about that idea last week….

    That would be cool!

    Or it could maybe announce if people attached pictures of their jewelry, because I always look for that! Or they could have a Gallery of Designs…

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    I’m going to post the suggestion somewhere to LB and tell them to read this thread!

  11. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Oh I like that gallery of gems…Wouldn’t that be super?

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Yes! I am making two rosaries with almost all LB beads, and they are coming out beautifully! Will post a pic when finished…somewhere..maybe we will have a gallery by then!!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    For you, Luv2bead, anything! I enjoy your picks so much and even went to the website you mentioned a while back and looked at your beautiful pieces! Mine won’t be that detailed, but I am really happy with the way they are turning out!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Awww thanks Plucky Chick!!! I’m glad you enjoy my picks! That’s great! Have you tried to sell any of your things?

  16. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    No, but for THE FIRST TIME THIS WEEK, someone asked me in a SERIOUS WAY, if I made jewelry to sell! I was wearing a piece I had just made! No confidence yet, but I am certainly better at it now than I was 5 years ago when I was making jewelry for my girls’ sports teams! I have also made a lot of jewelry for my daughters’ prom dresses and for their friends’ prom dresses!

  17. No Photo
    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    You should definitely try! Selling your jewelry helps give you more confidence in your things…and helps you gain back some of the money you spent buying all the beads!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Well, since two of three of my children are in collge, I will have to do something with all of my creations and creative tendencies, so ….. maybe! Thanks for your encouragement!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Movie Chick!! I truly am ROTFL! Like you need to fish for compliments? Sensitive today? LOL! The truth is – I would have to scroll way up to look at your pick and by the time i get down here, I forget what it looked like, my brain is scrambled with to so many beautiful picks (yours included!)

  22. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Well I just saw this (been gone all day) I love it. Mt Dad made me watch this movie with him once a longtime ago. The turq is beautiful with the jasper!

    If my comment made someone laugh out loud today then I am happy, I firmly believe that you can never have too much laughter in your life!

    Karen H aka Fancy Chick says:

    Very fun pick! And Luv2bead, what’s your website address? I’d love to see your jewels! Or anyone else that has a site.

  27. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Movie Chick, just checking back in,… yes, I really like your pick, and yes I have seen the movie. Had a hard time with the part about the leeches, a bit phobic about some bug things.
    I am liking the African turq. more even tho’ it looks a little odd to a Southwesterner.

    Thanks everyone, my ego has been restored! – LOL

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    WHEW!! Relief!! It would be tragic if you quit picking and posting!! I’m serious now!

    Another Plucky fact: I also believe in the health benefits of a good belly laugh!

    Ooooh! Pretty! I do hope Lima will have a photo gallery of some sort. It would be nice to have all the photos together somewhere!

    Great Pick, Movie Chick!

    movie chick aka susan says:

    I think a photo gallery is supposed to part of the ‘My Lima’ section, I think I ready that anyway.

    Good! Where did you read it? I’ve missed a few things I think.

    Smoky Rose says:

    Dizzy, Kevin jumped into comments on a pick earlier this week or late last and told us… I want to say it’s Downy’s – something like ‘a place for chicks’…. ?

    Movie Chick – that set is beautifu!! as is this pick! You’re making me want to use these, bit time!

    Smoky Rose says:

    oooops – so sorry, Dizzy Chick! I am confusing what Jeanne is referring to, which I did not know about, with the blog-type enhancement that LB will be rolling out soon. Thank you for clarifying Jeanne!!!! :)

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Smoky, Jeanne, thanks! I will look up Downy’s pick, (hopefully she’s not as prolific as some!;) ) Thanks for the link to the Kevin pick! I had seen that one, but I have a hard time finding older ones once they go down the list a bit!
