How is this ok?

My mother calls me the other day to tell me about a conversation she had with Sophia my 2nd grader. Sophia asked my mother who she voted for in the election and after my mother told her Sophia replied very matter of factly that "Obama kills babies" when asked where she heard that she said in school. Needless to say I was disturbed to hear that. When Sophia came home from school I asked her about it. Apparently one of her classmates had been spreading the word in class. Did I mention she's 2nd grade? She's 7 years old. 7 year old children take things literally. Now my child and her friends think that our next president will be showing up in our town to kill all the babies. How is it ok for a parent to describe someone who will be the topic of many discussions in class in such a graphic and horrific manner? Do they want to comfort my child when she is terrified that her friend's sister will soon be gone? I am all for freedom of speak when it's done responsibly and not done to instill fear in a child. Oh and when the parents were called to be notified what had occurred that didn't feel the need to returned to the call. I guess they don't feel the need to stand behind the words that had such an impact on such little minds.

Changes at Its All About The Jewels

Things might look off at Its All About The Jewels for a few days. I'm changing my hosts and it's going to take a few days to get everything back to normal

My Fashion Show Story

So you know by now I had been working like a mad woman making new jewelry for the fashion show. I had at least 6 new pieces and I was very excited about having them modeled. Wouldn't you know it but the Thursday before the show I started to feel very run down(no surprise there) and my throat started to really hurt. By the morning I couldn't swallow and I had a 102 degree fever. Sure enough I had a case of strep so bad that the doctor put me on vicodin to ease the pain. The last time I was on vicodin I just had a person cut out of my stomach. I figured I'd rest all weekend(of course easier said then done) and go to the show Monday night. By Monday I was feeling slightly better and being that I had been on antibiotics and no longer contagious I would go to then fashion show. So I piled on enough makeup to make a drag queen blush so I wouldn't look too much like the walking dead and off I went. My friend Lori drove so I sat there blowing my nose sounding like a very sick goose and cursing that all the work I had done covering up my bright red nose was being wiped off with each honk. I was there for a little while when feeling really crappy. Cold sweats,pounding headache and everyone started to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. I needed to go. So I called John to come get me and he was not too pleased even though it was only 8:30 and I was 10 minutes away. He even pretended to not even know where I was even though we had been there together several times. Finally he shows up and he and the girls are in in their pj's which I'm sure was for dramatic purposes only. So by 9:00 I was in my bed throwing myself a pity party. I didn't get to see my jewelry modeled(probably the only chance I would get) but at least I won a gift certificate for brunch.Oh Well!

Friday Fabulous Find

This week's find is not an item but a show. I recently stumbled across a show called Whatever,Martha on the fine living network. This show is just hilarious. On it Martha Stewart's daughter Alexis and her friend Jennifer watch old segments of her shows and basically tear them to shreds. Alexis also gives you the insiders view of what really happened on some of the episodes and what Martha was like as a mother.Whether you love Martha Stewart or just love to hate her you'll enjoy this 1/2 hour show. I'm completely addicted. Check your local listing for times.

Don't miss this opportunity because I almost never do a total site sale! As always I offer free shipping and gift wrapping.

Somebody stop me

Normally I don't eat tons of crap. I do allow myself a treat now & then and always in moderation but something happens to my brain right after Halloween. I become this crazed candy eating monster. God help you if you get between me and the candy bowl. Of course this year Halloween hits right when I'm PMS-ing which means this year I have no choice but to eat twice as much as my normal intake. Last night I ate- at 11:30 mind you- 2 peanut butter cups, a take five,payday,and 2 chocolate coated dipper cookies from Trader Joes.Somebody needs to stop me because obviously I can't do it myself. Take away the bowl of temptation before I eat myself into a new jeans size.Just do it carefully because if I see you I will hurt you-badly.
