“Welcome To The Chickdom”

Description from CAS: A brief history of “Chick” or “Chicky”

I am one of the two “chicks” that started the whole thing. Anita (Anita QoG Funny Chick) and I started it all joking around one day in late January of 2009 (I’ve tried looking for the exact pick that started it, but haven’t been able to find it … yet). A pick got us reminiscing about the 60′s and 70′s, and one of us called the other a “groovy chick”. After that when we chatted we’d call each other “groovy chick”, “slick chick” etc… and it stuck. I became Chicky Babe, and Anita became Funny Chick. Soon Mary (Sweet Chick), Ivy (Cuban Queen Crazy Chick), Elaine (Belly Chick), Lynn Eileen (Chicky LE), Joyce (Smart Chick), Becky (Puppy Chick), and many others to numerous to name, as they’d say on T.V. joined in. The Easter Egg hunt that year spurred it on, and LB acknowledged our “chickiness” and the CHICKDOM was born!

    This is an absolutely darling and perfect pick to honor the Chickdom! I also like that you used silver and gold in the year charms. I like mixed metals because I don’t have to feel odd wearing more than one bracelet, etc. to combine metals.

    Thank you Pam and Joyce! Joyce, it was a lot of fun going back and reading the comments in some of the old, old picks. Some were very moving, some very silly, some informative, but all showed the strength and creativity of the “chicks” of LB.

    Bravo Christine! :-D A great walk down memory lane for us old chicks and like Ams said, a wonderful “rest of the story” for those that didn’t know….

    I love how you pulled this one together! Bright and cheery! (Has it really been since 2009?!) All are welcome to the Chickdom!

    Does anyone know how the missing chickies are doing? Anita, Lynn Eileen, Ivy and so many others…I look around now and then for activity from them and wonder how they’re doing. I saw a few during the Egg hunt this year.

    Well I always wondered about the “chick” thing and how it started. I love this “chicky pick”!

    I’m barely a chick but they welcomed me as a latecomer. :) I’ve seen some of the old shenanigans and they were fun! Lynn Eileen is still on facebook and Ivy hangs around here once in awhile (Hi, Ivy!) There was also Maria (NY Bella) and Delta Chick (Gina). Crazy Chick (Frida) had her dog Zammy wearing sunglasses as her avatar.

    As long as we all want to have fun everyone is a chick. :)

    Happy memories of late night chick chat and bead-oriented storytelling (AqK v Simon LeFiligree…hehehe)…fun times indeed! What a pretty pick to memorialize those early days of our shared obsession with all things beading…and LIMA!

    Maybe it’s time for a Chickie Check-In…So, here I am…Silly Chick…present and accounted for! :)

    Wonderful memories from so many years ago! Thanks for the memories Christine!
    I tried to find the original pick that started it all..way too much to go through!

    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Hi again Christine-I have browsed through pages and pages and pages of Fresh Picks trying to find how the Chickies all began. While I cannot find the Fresh Pick, I have narrowed the date down to sometime in March of 2009. Hoping someone can truly find the original thread!
