I know I said I would have a winner first thing Monday morning, but wooowweeee!!!! I still am stuck, but have narrowed it down to the topic of Death. Euthanasia suggested by Kim, Kimmee and the Death Penalty suggested by Cheribella. I think I am going to try and work all of it into the same paper. If you do not have your addy updated or in the bella database, please email me it privatly. You are all winners. I had one thing in mind, but with multiple winners I plan to change it up just a bit. It will take me just a couple of days to put the goodies into the mail for you girls.
Honorable mention to Ellen, I was touched by her story. Another shout out to the topic of gay rights and childcare.
Shout out to everyone and all of the wonderful ideas. I am sorry to take everyone off of their wonderful crafting. It was selfish. Only so I could get ideas to finish my paper and get back to playing in my scraproom.
TY! TY! TY!

Much of the work we will do on moral questions and moral theory in this course may seem very abstract. This is necessary when you are looking for the broadest understanding possible, but it also allows a certain casualness to work its way into the practice. "The Nazis were bad and it's good to be good to others" seems true, but all of this should lead us to put our money where our mouths are at some point. Thus, theory and explanation are the first steps we take as moral thinkers, and then we need to put our studies into practice.
For your final paper, write about a real contemporary problem where you see the status quo as lined up against something that is just or in favor of something that is unjust. Make a case for what you think would be just and argue for measures that should be taken to counteract that injustice. The stronger your measures, the greater your need to justify such measures. You must write in a careful, theoretical way. If you can make this assignment about your own experience or community, then all the better but you must support your arguments. You must use at least 8-10 outside sources in the construction of your argument.
I promise, your name and information will not be in the paper at all. I just need help thinking of a topic. My blog candy will be fabulous. I am not sure what yet, but fabulous. My last blog candy was a gift certificate to stamping bella, just so you know I don't give out poop. I may just ask the winner a couple of questions and decide a couple of choices and let you pick.
I just need HELP!!!

I believe her name is Betina Buttercream, I tried to search the bella website but couldn't find her. I got her in the latest image swap on the bellaholic Yahoo group. She is a lot of fun to color.
This is Partygirlabella. She was one of my very first bella's that I bought. I think she is one of my top favorite's for sure.
** I forgot to scan her...she will be posted later***
Lots of love,

To all of my friends, a very big THANKS!!!
One more special thanks...
To my Lisa in Las Vegas. If it wasn't for you helping me get my goosie home, I would be lost right now. You didn't have to do anything you have done, but you did. My soulmate friend, that has everybit of bad that I love so much in her and who really loves and understands the everybit of bad in me. For that, no one will ever understand but you! I love you!!!!
I hope I don't forget anything. A handmade picture frame and message board. My very first set of SU! Stamps-Friendship Blooms, chipboad letters, notepad, canister, memo book, tons of christmas embellishments (I sooo needed :-), adhesive, flowers, monogram C, Marcella K die cut pad and matching embellishment kit, summer and travel stickers, mud mask, glitter, more chipboard, and a paper pack with rub ons. Whew!

I have not been on much lately...for good reason. I think everyone close to me knows that my 7 yr old is off traveling like a crazy guy for the summer (looong story). He is safe and having a BALL!! He is in Pismo Beach, California for the weekend. He is FINALLY coming home on Friday the 8th. But not after going to Las Vegas and spending a night with my friend Lisa that I used to fly with. Something not everyone knows, I was a flight attendant in a previous life....pre-kids and family. Awwww miss those days. But I wouldn't give my family up for the world... Literally..hahahaha!
Which brings me to the best news ever!!! I have spent the last week back at home. David and I have talked and will be working really hard at making this work. So yesterday (08/01) I moved all of my stuff back home. Ahhhhhh...home sweet home. I must say that I was really ready to come home. I love my parents, but it really was not the same as being at home.
Last night we went to see John Mayer and Colbie Calliat. THE BEST CONCERT EVER!!!!!
Colbie sounded just like her CD. I actually enjoyed her a little bit more than John. I have seen him in concert before. Don't get me wrong, he is amazing. We did leave just a tiny bit early to beat the traffic. But I never heard the most favorite song ever, "Your body is a wonderland" and my total fav "Dreaming with a broken heart". But I guess that's what a CD is for.
It was sooo hot!!! I think it was 103, felt like 1000 billion and 3!! You will be able to see in the pic. and a handsome pic of my honey bunny John Meyer. Our seats were awesome, it was just sooo hot inside the seating area.
I am off to start unpacking my scrap room. I have some pics to take and post of some wonderful Bella stuff I got from sistah Christi! I have mail to get out, and a cake to order for my baby blake who turns 3 on Monday. We will have a bigger party when goosie gets back. I CAN'T WAIT!!!
Big fat happy hugs!!!!!
