I'm Getting a Make Over!

Well, not me personally although god knows I could use one, but It's All About The Jewels is getting a make-over tomorrow! I'm very excited about it. Not going to be a dramatic change-in fact I'm staying with the same base color-just a little tweaking. Check back Saturday to see the new design

Swap & Shop Party Part II

I just realized I never told you how the Swap & Shop Party went. Well- it was awesome! Bad news is I was so busy setting everything up that I forgot to charge my camera so no pictures-sorry. Approx. 10 women came and boy did they bring the goods. Everyone left with at least one bag of goodies a few ladies left with two or more bags! We had so much stuff that I ended up having to use more tables than I had planned.We had tons of clothes,shoes,purses,tons of picture frames,candles the list goes on and on. I ended up with the following:

Long camel colored wrap sweater from the Gap that I now wear EVERYDAY!
( FYI.. I don't like bathrobes so I wear long sweaters instead)
Beautiful huge floral print makeup bag with tons of pockets 
Crystal candlestick holders
Set of Chinese dishes included soup bowls and spoons,chopsticks,plates
this was for my sushi loving Sophia who was BEGGING( i.e. driving me crazy)for this set. I promised her that at the end of the night if it was still here I'd take it.She got her wish

The party ran for about 4 hours and everyone had a great time. I had the Lupus Foundation come a few days later and they happily took everything that was left over.

A total win-win for everyone. If you have the chance to host/attend one of these parties do it-you definitely won't regret it!

I have to say I had the hardest time choosing a name this time. I recieved so many wonderful name choices this month. In fact I decided that the names that I didn't choose I'm going to atuomatically enter in May's contest!

The reason  I choose the name Alora is because not only is it a beautiful name but when I was telling my husband about some of the submissons he actually remembered this name from the movie Willow. Why that is important is my husband never ever ever remembers a name for anyone from,anywhere, at anytime.  The fact that he came up with the name of the movie which a character had this name without skipping a beat sealed the deal for me!

Thank you all for the wonderful submissions-I hope to hear from you again in May!

Does Anyone Know?

Don't let the cuteness fool you- he's dangerous!

Does anyone know the official time frame when you can throw out the Easter candy and not be considered a mean mommy? They are back at school and I'm stuck here with chocolate bunnies,colorful peeps,and tons of assorted jellybeans,gummy treats,pastel m&m... the list just goes on and on! I figured if I give into a little temptation I wouldn't be obsessing so much about the tons of candy in my home so I figured I would hit the peeps-until I read the calories.140 for 5 little peeps! I can eat 5 peeps without even taking a breath. It got worse from there. Really does anyone know? I have to get this stuff out of my house before they have to cut out a wall to get me out of my house!

April Name This Piece Contest-CLOSED

Well the weather has finally been nice enough for me to take photos of the jewelry I have been making all winter so that's what I did today.I've been waiting to show this  beauty for this month's contest. I have to be honest and say this is probably my favorite piece out of everything I've ever made.
Made with gorgeous pale and dark Amethyst nuggets.The pale stones are smooth while the darker stones are faceted. I've attached them to antiqued brass large link chain which I've woven a smaller link chain through to give it more dimension. Definitely a bold statement piece. This piece is one of a kind $65.00

As with my previous contest all you need to do is submit a name for this piece and you will win the following earrings:

Made with 3 different sized Turquoise round beads and sterling silver.
Brand new design not yet on the site.As a bonus if you win these beauties I'll name them after you!

If you don't already know I like to name my jewelry after women-as we are all jewels in our own way.
If you need to check what names I'm already using check my site:

Leave a comment with your name choice after this post & why that name-couldn't be easier!

Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you!

Contest ends April 12th

Friday Fabulous Find

This Friday I'm letting you know about one of my newest favorite things


No not that Alice(although who doesn't love her)

This Alice: is a great new site where you can purchase home essentials (think toilet paper,paper towels,toothpaste,cleaners,etc.)

I absolutely love this site and these are some reasons why:
1.Free Shipping! Who doesn't love free shipping. Not only do they ship for free but it arrives in this big really sturdy blue box which is the perfect size for re-use.

2. Everything arrives in great condition. All liquid items come with their caps securely taped down on in plastic bags which you can also reuse.

3.Coupons! I don't know about you but I'm all about the coupons and they always offer tons of them on the site and they are automatically applied.

4.Easy to navigate. You can shop by room,brand,green products,the biggest savings,recently added. I tend to go right to the biggest saving, in this economy I much more concerned on saving money then brand loyalty.

5. Equal or better pricing than the mass retailers
I think this speaks for itself.

6. They help you stay on budget!
They have all sorts of great tools to help you stay on your shopping budget.

If you click the banner above and you are a first time shopper you will get $10 off your first purchase.

As I mentioned before I love this site! Anyone who knows me knows I hate to shop-correction I hate to shop in the real world looove to shop on-line. If I can save lots of money and time and not have to get off my butt I'm a hap hap happy chick!
