AKA Christine AKA Chicky Babe, one of the original “Chicks”. I live in New Hampshire with my parents, and at one time my Nana (maternal grandmother), who has since passed away. I’m currently in my 50′s, my birthday is in July. I’ve been beading since 2007. I’m the oldest of 4, I have 2 sisters (PA and ME) and 1 brother (NH), 4 nephews (2 in PA, 1 in NH, 1 in Montana at college) and 1 niece (ME). I’m an ex-RN currently working in retail to keep myself in … you’ve guessed it … BEADS!

  • CAS commented on the Design “Adirondack Necklace Set with Moose”   1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Living in the upper Connecticut River valley, between the White and the Green Mountains of NH and VT, I see plenty of deer and moose … so of course I adore your little Moose and his wonderfully colorful “landscape”. Those pinecone earrings are delightful. All very ooohhhh … aaahhhh.

  • CAS commented on the Design “Colorful Fringe”   5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Utterly ooohhh … aaahhh … WOW!!! Such a totally unique piece, and a very clever way to use up orphan beads. Gorgeous!

  • CAS commented on the Design “Aargh Again”   6 months ago

    Oooohhhh … arrrrghhh! Wenchy enough? Oh YES! I like this even more than your first one. Ever so cool, break out the rum … just don’t give any to the chickens.

    Congrats on the new job! Glad you’re loving it and hope the flame stays burning and you don’t burn out! And hope they are understanding of your duty to be away for a day each month for civic responsibilities for the next 6 months. I’m proud of anyone to be judged as so levelheaded, fair & unbiased as to serve on a grand jury. Good on you.

    Christine, Thank you for making touch. Early in November I spent a 2-week sabbatical with dear, long-term friends whom we have known for 50 years. It was great! No decisions, no cooking, no talking if I did not want to … I took many beading projects with me and completed only two.
    So it goes. We shall be in CT with our son and his family for Christmas and that will be difficult. Sarah’s daughter still lives there with her father. As Sarge used to say about Beetle Bailey, ”@±*&>?!”
    Take care and be well.

    Christine, thank you for your friendship request! Of course, I accepted. I’d just come back from a bead show in town. I spent some money for things I haven’t found at LB. Saw a lot of gorgeous Labradorite at exorbitant prices with 20 to 30 % off and still higher than LB. Needless to say, I didn’t buy any. Found some gorgeous Picture jasper beads for $1 a strand.

    Christine, thank you for checking in … days are getting a little better … my focus is still problematic so I play beads instead of cleaning the house; reading is okay, although once in awhile I need to re-read a page. And so it goes …
    Take care,

    Christine, thank you for your kind words you posted on my wire. The days are perfectly dreadful … they do pass. One day I shall begin wearing bright colors once again.
    Be well and take care,

    My dear Chickies, my beloved Nana (maternal Grandmother) passed away here at home on Saturday, March 16th, 2013 after a brief hospital stay. She was surrounded by her family, and her death was a peaceful one. Please, if you would, include her in your thoughts and prayers.
