Ca bouge chez Edwige !

Hello everyone !

Je sais, je sais, vous allez me dire que je vous avais promis de venir ici plus souvent, de vous donner des nouvelles et que je ne tiens pas mes paroles ! Je vous disais également dans mon précédent post que certaines choses allaient évoluer pour Edwige’s Creation dès la rentrée. Je vous écris à chaque fois que ce n’est pas parce que je ne suis pas présente, que je ne bosse pas pour vous mes clients adorés. Même si ces phrases sont répétitives, elles n’en sont pas moins vraies. C’est d’ailleurs ce travail, ces évolutions et nouveautés que je souhaite partager avec vous aujourd’hui.

Tout d’abord, un site internet…

Alors, commençons par une mauvaise nouvelle (la seule) : le “blog amélioré”, support sur lequel vous pouvez me retrouver actuellement, va disparaître. Comme l’expression employée l’indique bien, sur ce “blog amélioré”, je ne pouvais y écrire des choses qui me touchent et faisant pourtant partie de mon univers créatif. Celui-ci n’était pas non plus un véritable site internet permettant à toute personne intéressée par mes créations de trouver toutes les informations qu’il ou elle aurait souhaitées. Bref, ce pauvre “blog amélioré”, ne pouvait donc ni prétendre au titre de blog, ni à celui de site internet. C’est pour cela que désormais vous me trouverez dans deux supports bien distincts et surtout plus clairs pour tout le monde : dans un premier temps, un véritable site internet complètement dédié à mes créations, et dans un deuxième temps, un blog qui sera relié de près ou de loin à mon univers créatif et sur lequel je pourrai être plus libre de partager avec vous, mes passions, mes coups de coeur, mes voyages, … Toutes ces choses qui m’inspirent et qui font évoluer mon univers. De cette façon, tout sera plus clair, et chacun sera libre de me suivre sur l’un ou l’autre support, voire les deux !

Vous me direz : mais ça change quoi pour nous concrètement ? Et à quelles adresses pourrez-vous me retrouver ? Le blog va disparaître au profit du nouveau site internet, donc, l’adresse que vous connaissez tous (www.edwiges-creation.com) restera la même. Afin de vous donner un peu de temps pour vous faire à ce changement, le blog restera actif, et vous pouvez d’ores et déjà découvrir la version beta du site internet ici : Nouveau site Edwige’s Creation. Quant au futur blog, je vous le présenterai dès qu’il sera prêt et surtout dès que je me sentirai prête à vous raconter plein de choses, qui j’espère vous intéresseront.

Un point de vente à Lille…

Mais attention, ce n’est pas tout ! Roulements de tambour…. Vous êtes prêts ?! A partir de cette semaine vous pourrez retrouver une sélection de mes créations dans une boutique à Lille. La charmante blogueuse Charlotte, du blog Parlons Vernis & Co, a réalisé son rêve d’ouvrir une boutique dédiée à sa passion : les vernis et tout leur univers. Comme des vernis aux bijoux, il n’y a qu’un pas, elle vous proposera également une sélection de créateurs dont j’ai la chance de faire partie. Pour les lilloises ou les visiteuses, je partage avec vous cette belle adresse et vous invite à la découvrir :

Fairy Yours

NFL rumors: Cowboys need to re-sign Dez Bryant, says Deion Sanders

The clock is ticking for former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was released almost two months ago.

NFL teams are deep into OTA and minicamp schedules, with July training camps fast approaching.

As it stands, Gronkowski the horse has 12-1 odds in the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes, giving him the seventh-best odds in the field of nine. Justify leads the pack at 4-5 odds. Despite the long-shot probability of Gronk’s horse winding up in the winner’s circle, he has reason to believe. Deep down, Gronk the person just knows that the stars are aligned for Gronk the horse.

Not only were the early odds 69–1, his favorite number because of its secondary meaning, but the race is run on June 9 (6/9), a date he’s dubbed the Official Gronk National Holiday. I can’t even explain that coincidence, he laughs. It’s just wild. With that in mind, it should be a pretty nice day at the track regardless of where the horse finishes in the race.

The first number that stood out: Drew Brees is just 1,496 passing yards shy of breaking Peyton Manning’s career record (71,940). He’ll get that, easy.

Second: Kicker Adam Vinatieri needs only 58 points to pass Morten Andersen (2,544 career points) as the career scoring leader. Vinatieri will get that easily as well.

Third: Perhaps the greatest potential player on the verge of moving up the record books is also one of the classiest guys in all of sports, Larry Fitzgerald. He can move into second place all-time in receptions (he needs 92 to pass Tony Gonzalez’s 1,325) and receiving yards (390 to pass Terrell Owens’ 15,934).

Fitzgerald is the most intriguing because he will make people reevaluate who the top three receivers of all time are. I sometimes shift, but generally my list is Jerry Rice, Owens and Randy Moss. Fitzgerald might force his way onto there, though.

Matthews described his intro to TB12 thusly: Hi. Shook hands. Let’s go to work.

For an early June practice, Brady looked rather fresh. He bounced around between plays. Threw with zip. Connected on more deep throws than he missed.

Tom looked great,Rob Gronkowski assessed. He’s never going to look bad. He’s always looking good.

After working Justify at Churchill Downs, Baffert sees no reason the horse he joked was his backupto McKinzie on this Triple Crown trail could make the distance at the Belmont.

We’re quietly optimistic that we can hopefully do it again, Baffert said. But I’m like I’m a realist. I don’t believe it until I see it. Right now we just stay focused and get him up there and keep him happy.

Pete Zayas From Lakers Film Room – whose credentials have been tweeted out on t he main Lakers account – said on the Under the Buss Podcast, he was told by four sources LeBron James is going to be a Laker this summer:

I have had four different sources in the entertainment industry, none of them been basketball people… LeBron is coming [to the Lakers with Paul George] he has had to put X, Y, and Z in motion from a marketing standpoint.

James to the Lakers has long been hot rumor throughout this season, as many expect him to leave Cleveland as soon as the season comes to an end.

Although the Lakers do not have much talent on the roster currently, if James were to head to Los Angeles along with Paul George, as the report suggests, that would change quickly.

Even with James and George, however, it is hard to see the Lakers competing in a very tough Western Conference, and they would be a clear step below both the Warriors and the Houston Rockets.

In addition to the Lakers, there has been speculation that James could leave the Cavaliers for either the Sixers or the Rockets.

With free agency set to begin on July 1, we should soon have our answer.

Watch: Hue Jackson keeps promise, jumps into Lake Erie after Browns go 0-16

Browns coach Hue Jackson kept true to his promise.

Coming off a 2016 season when Cleveland went 1-15, Jackson told reporters there was no way they would have that bad of a record again.

I carry them and their families and this city with me contrary to what anybody believes. It’s on me. I wear it every day. So I just thank them for being a part of this because they didn’t have to do this. They didn’t have to come here and support this. I made the statement, and they said, ‘No, I want to do this,’ and I’m thankful.

He is progressing with his life and recovery. I’m enjoying doing that in privacy, he said. That is all I was calling to say.

He would not answer any questions about his recovery, about being impersonated or what he has been up to since 2012, but that when I get to that point, I will call you. Harrison’s wife, Michelle, also confirmed the account was not theirs.

The account that posed as Harrison posted at least two messages on Saturday; one read No one can measure your WILL! #inspireothers and another appeared to be an inspirational video. It’s not clear who was in the video.

Two days after the messages — which went viral, including stories on multiple outlets — former NFL receiver Greg Jennings, who has known Harrison since their days together in their hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan, posted a message saying the account was false.

The account was deleted the same day and reappeared Wednesday posing as Vernon Gholston with the handle (@Gholston50). A message left for Gholston, a former NFL defensive end, was not immediately returned.

That account was then deleted Thursday and again reappeared, this time with the handle @CharlesRogers80 — presumably impersonating another former NFL player, Charles Rogers. All three players who have been impersonated by the account went to high school in Michigan.

Report: Mets consider demoting OF Conforto

The Mets are considering sending to the minors to help the slumping outfielder regain his swing, according to the New York Post.

On the disabled list since May 14 because of a strained right hip flexor, the oft-injured slugger hit two doubles Saturday in his second rehab game for Double-A Binghamton but was removed early with tightness in his right quadriceps.

Same stuff he’s been battling. It’s not a total setback to day one but still not feeling the way he would like it to feel to come up here and contribute, Callaway said.

Callaway said Cespedes’ first hit Saturday was a stand-up double, but on the second one, the slugger had to run a little harder to make sure he made it to second, and that’s when he felt discomfort again.

He feels like he’s not quite ready, so we’re going to send him to Florida to kind of start that day-to-day process of getting him where he needs to be, Callaway said.

Max Muncy went 1-for-2 with two walks and a two-run homer off Sean Newcomb and is now hitting .272/.395/.616 with 12 home runs.

Seems the best-hitting team in the big leagues can win with pitching and defense, too.

Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a 2-0 victory Monday night.

Though the Red Sox lead the majors in runs and batting average, they managed only four hits through 11 scoreless innings in this one.

Sometimes we’re going to go through stuff like this, throughout the season, manager Alex Cora said. But the pitching did outstanding, we played great defense and we ended up winning.

Goldschmidt homered twice in each of the first two games against the Rockies. He was 8 of 13 with four home runs and nine RBI in the three-game sweep.

Jones said whichever team signs Bryant will be getting a motivated player.

You know at the [NFL owners] meetings I have had different conversations about him, Jones said. At the Competition Committee meeting, some of the coaches there speak to it. I’m sure other coaches have called our coaches and wanted input on him. The greatest thing about Dez is he is a fierce competitor. I think he is now more driven and more competitive than he has ever been. We wish him nothing but the best.

And hey, if RG3 continues to impress the Ravens’ coaching staff while mentoring Jackson, perhaps he can find second life in the NFL as a backup quarterback. Robert Griffin in the quarterback room has been excellent — pro’s pro in every way,Ravens coach said. We do our early morning coach workouts, and he’s down there always working extra. He’s just a pro’s pro. I love every way he handles himself and I think you saw out there in practice that he practiced well.

At the time Adams tweeted that, he might’ve been right. The number of retweets has continued to climb, though.

On NBA.com, a replica LeBron James jersey is priced at $74.99. Multiply that by the 300,000 people who have retweeted so far and that’s a cool $22.5 million.

But Randall didn’t specify what kind of jersey he’d buy

If the Cavs win, Randall’s best chance at actually paying up and not squelching on the bet is to be creative. Randall told everyone he’d buy them a jersey — he didn’t promise that it’d be a nice one.

On NFLShop.com there are some truly awful Browns memorabilia up for sale. Randall could save a lot if he goes digging through the graveyard of Cleveland past to scoop up Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson, Peyton Hillis, and Colt McCoy jerseys.

Congratulations, Eli Manning. 

The New York Jets haven’t won a division crown since 2002 and haven’t been to a Super Bowl since winning it in 1968. A big reason why? Just five Jets quarterbacks have made Pro Bowls in the last 40 years, and their recent efforts to find an answer under center have all failed.

Can he help franchise quarterback Derek Carr bounce back from a down year? Gruden didn’t have much success late in his tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he hasn’t worked with a signal-caller like Carr since the days of Rich Gannon. This Raiders team has a lot of top-end talent and is two seasons removed from a 12 wins.

The Steelers offered no hints on what the “new’ uniform might look like, but we do know it’s a throwback, which means we can probably take a few guesses here, since there are only so many options that they can throwback to.  One thing we do know is that Steelers won’t be wearing their bumblebee uniform, which is should be pleasing news out there to anyone who loathes horizontal stripes. For years, the bumblebee uniform divided the internet: Everyone seemed to love or hate the team’s 1934 uniform, with no in-between.  You can see the bumblebee uniform below.  The Steelers are probably not bringing back their bumblebee uniform.

Much has been made of the lack of pass protection, which continues to be a concern considering the sorry state of Seattle’s offensive line. But renewed backfield balance would go a long way toward taking pressure off Wilson; the Seahawks running game ranked in the bottom 10 in each of the last two seasons.

Enter first-round pick Rashaad Penny, who is coming off a monster senior season (2,383 scrimmage yards, 25 touchdowns) at San Diego State and appears to have the experience, patience, vision and talent to play a major role from the get-go. 

2 Devils prospects to play in 2018 Memorial Cup

Two Devils prospects will be participating among the final four teams in the 2018 Memorial Cup, which will determine the winner of the CHL playoffs starting on Friday.

Defenseman Colby Sissons and the Swift Current Broncos reached the Memorial Cup after winning the WHL playoffs.

Forward Marian Studenic and the Hamilton Bulldogs also made the final four after being crowned champions of the OHL.

Frazier tinkered with his approach in the offseason, hoping to reduce a hitch in his swing that slowed bat speed that general manager Brian Cashman called “legendary” when the team acquired him in a trade with the Indians for reliever Andrew Miller at the 2016 deadline.

On May 7, against the Nationals’ Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, Frazier said he wanted to do something that would make him more athletic in the box.

So he started rocking back and forth, trying to sync his hands with his front leg. His goal, he said, is to time his leg kick’s apex with his bat wave when the head of the bat is pointing toward the pitcher.

Devils coach John Hynes  elected to start Keith Kinkaid over Schneider in the first two games of the opening round against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the team’s first playoff appearance since 2011. Schneider relieved Kinkaid in Game 2 of the series  before starting the next three in a 4-1 series loss to the Lightning.

Earlier this month,  Schneider underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip.

Schneider has made over $33 million in his nine-year NHL career,  according to Spotrac.com. He and his wife have two young children.

Dez Bryant to the Packers/Saints? “I think the Packers could be in play, but I know this for a fact — they like some of their younger receivers. Rodgers could handle him though,” Prisco said. “Brees could handle him as well. Dez Bryant’s one of those guys who wants the football, when he doesn’t get it, he’s going to be angry about it, so you need a strong-willed quarterback to handle him. “I still think Seattle could be in play on him and could make a lot of sense to me.”

NFL has no issue with David Tepper’s casino holdings

The prospective owner of the Carolina Panthers owns a company that holds ownership interest in casino stock. That won’t keep David Tepper from owning the team. Via Carleton English and John Kosman of the New York Post, the league has no issue with Tepper’s company, Appaloosa Management, holding ownership interests in Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, and Boyd Gaming.

This was vetted to the satisfaction of ownership and was not an issue in 2009 when Mr. Tepper became a minority owner of the Steelers, a league spokesperson told the Post. Currently, owners can hold investments in casinos, as long as they don’t participate in the operation of them.

“We had five rookies in the lineup tonight. So the future is bright,” he said. “I thought our window was closed, and that we were an old team!”

The Jaguars cut Gennesy on Monday. He originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2017, signing with the Jaguars. Gennesy spent part of last season on Jacksonville’s practice squad.

The Browns signed Carrizosa as an undrafted free agent May 4. They signed Schneider as free agent January 31.

“It’s an amazing moment and also message,” Green said. “I’m just grateful to be a part of it. I think it was historic when people first saw it.”

When asked if he has gained business from the exposure of the Cavs, Browne echoed Green’s take.

“This wasn’t a commercial initiative for me,” he wrote. “This was a cultural initiative that represents to power of unity and true individuality.”

As the playoffs have gone on, several Cavs players have expressed their individuality by adding their own twists to the uniforms.

Hue Jackson became sold on Baker Mayfield at private workout

Hue Jackson needed convincing, and Baker Mayfield‘s combine performance wasn’t enough.

The Browns coach said Mayfield’s private workout at Oklahoma on March 22 sold him on Mayfield. Jackson noted Mayfield’s processing speed on the white board.

“I am being very honest,” Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It started at the combine just talking to him and listening to some of the things he has said, and I go, ‘OK, well, that still didn’t convince me yet.’

“Then going down and working him out in Norman and watching him with his teammates and how he throws the football. The ball jumps off his arm. He has a quick arm. He is very accurate with the ball. From there, obviously, spending some more time with him when he came here. Baker Mayfield from a football IQ standpoint is as good as I have been around. He has tremendous arm talent, more so than anybody knows.

As to the altercation that supposed happened during a visit with the Eagles, Rapoport reports that there was a “shouting match,” and that one unnamed source called it the worst meeting that team ever had with a player. (Oddly, Mike Mayock’s final mock draft had Guice going to the Eagles at No. 32; Mayock handles the in-booth analysis for Philly’s preseason games.)

Chatter continues regarding other incidents and rumors involving Guice, to the point where Washington is currently looking into some of the scuttlebutt. Some would say they should have done that before they put his name on the card. (Others would say, “What else do you expect from this specific franchise?”)

Here’s a prediction that one source shared with PFT prior to the draft. (I stay away from posting opinions from anonymous sources before the draft because of the very real incentive teams have to trash guys they secretly hope to draft at a lower spot. Now that Guice has been picked, that concern doesn’t apply.) Per the source, an executive from a team that had multiple chances to draft Guice and didn’t, it’s expected that unless he matures quickly Guice will have a couple of years of solid production before he wears out his welcome and ends up cut or traded.

Former Packers defensive lineman Carlos Gray shot and killed in home

Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Carlos Gray was shot to death in his home in Pinson, Ala. Monday night, according to Carol Robinson of AL.com.

In last season’s finale, he suffered a fractured fibula that kept him from participating in the NFL Combine. He did later get workouts with several NFL teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions.

It’s a little detour route, said Roback, who has good size for a pro quarterback — at 6-foot-3 and 206 pounds — as well as excellent arm strength and above-average mobility.

Obviously, things didn’t go the way I anticipated, but that’s kind of how my story’s been.

I’m more than grateful for the Browns organization for taking this risk.

The team announced on Monday that they have waived six players, including running back Matt Jones. Jones was claimed off of waivers last September and ran the ball five times for 14 yards in five regular season appearances. He ran 243 times for 950 yards and six touchdowns for Washington in 2015 and 2016, but was benched halfway through the latter season.

Linebacker Jermaine Grace, nose tackle Joey Mbu and linebacker Darnell Sankey were also waived after seeing time for the Colts last season. Wide receiver Justice Liggins and defensive end Arthur Miley have not seen any regular season action and will be looking for it somewhere other than Indianapolis.

The final move was to waive defensive tackle Jonathan Calvin with an injury designation. He was on the Colts practice squad last year and will revert to injured reserve if he goes unclaimed.

He reports to the Browns on Sunday, and will take his physical Monday.

I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they made the right decision, Roback said.
