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

Why ‘quarterback guy’ Ernie Accorsi thinks Saquon Barkley is ‘ideal pick’ for Giants

When stumped Giants general manager Dave Gettleman couldn’t think of an apt comparison for rookie running back Saquon Barkley, he passed the buck to his former boss Ernie Accorsi.

So what does Accorsi think of Barkley, who the Giants chose with the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft?

The best running back I’ve seen come out of college in 20 years, the former Giants general manager said on the Talk of Fame Network podcast. I told Dave, ‘If you don’t pick Barkley, it’s a good thing the draft is in Dallas. Because if it were in Radio City (Music Hall), you’re going to get booed.’

Glasgow showed he had long-term potential at guard in 2017, ranking as the No. 20 player at the position, according to Pro Football Focus. He also proved his toughness and durability during his second season as the only Lions’ offensive lineman to play every offensive snap.

I’m just going to say it’s tough, but I’m focusing on trying to do that again in this year, Glasgow said.

Vazquez led off the top of the third inning by slicing a line drive over first and down the line. Judge cut off the ball before it reached the wall, then saw Vazquez trying to extend his hit.

The Yankees right fielder calmly tossed a laser to second base, directly to the glove of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who didn’t need to move it to tag Vazquez.

Yankees pitcher Luis Severino applauded the throw, then struck out the next two batters in order to preserve the Yankees’ 1-0 lead.

Designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton hit a rocket into the lower seats in left field for a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning to give the Yankees an early lead. Stanton added another solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning to put the Yankees up 2-0. It marked Stanton’s third multi-home run game of the season.

Severino struck out six and allowed three hits over his first four innings of work.

Wizards’ John Wall on forcing a Game 7: ‘We’re very confident’

After relinquishing a five-point fourth-quarter lead on the road in Wednesday’s Game 5, John Wall said the Washington Wizards still are extremely confident that they’ll force a Game 7 and be back in Toronto on Sunday.

A buzzer-beater. A 25-point comeback. A team moving on to the second round. Wednesday’s NBA playoff action had everything, and we have it all here.

“We love our chances,” Wall said when asked how he likes the Wizards’ odds of winning Friday’s Game 6 at home against the Raptors and returning to Canada. “We’re very confident.”

“We’ve been down 2-0 before, so I don’t think being down 3-2 when we are going home is anything psychologically draining,” Oubre said.

“Y’all have seen how we play when our backs are against the wall.”

Gronkowski, who turns 29 on May 14, earned All-Pro honors in 2017 as he bounced back from a season in which he was limited to eight regular-season games in 2016 and underwent back surgery. He led the Patriots with 69 receptions, which went for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

He missed two games in the regular season — one because of a thigh injury and one due to NFL suspension — and was knocked out of the AFC Championship Game with a concussion.
His health might have been on his mind after Super Bowl LII when he was asked about possibly retiring.

“I don’t know how you heard that, but I mean, I’m definitely going to look at my future, for sure,” Gronkowski said moments after the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. “I’m going to sit down in the next couple of weeks and see where I’m at.”

When asked that day what would make him retire, Gronkowski said, “I’m not ready for these types of questions right now. I mean, I’m just going to sit down, reflect on the season, keep talking to my teammates … and just see what happens.”

Gronkowski, who has undergone three back surgeries in his career, in addition to procedures on his knee and forearm, said after the Super Bowl that concussions would not be the reason for him to retire.

Brian Burke to step down as Calgary Flames president

While serving as president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brian Burke infamously spoke about a “five-year plan” for success. He was hired in November 2008 and fired in January 2013.

Another “five-year plan” has wrapped up for Burke, as the Calgary Flames announced Friday that their president of hockey operations “will be stepping back from the organization,” effective May 1.

Burke’s hiring was an unconventional move for Calgary, as he was seen as the driver for player personnel decisions over the general manager.

“This is a relatively new structure in professional hockey,” Burke said at the time. “There are two teams in the NHL that have this type of management structure. There are a number of teams in the National Football League that do, a number of teams in Major League Baseball that do and a number of teams in the NBA that do. And it works effectively. And it’s going to work here.”

Over time, the outspoken executive faded into the background for the Flames, allowing Treliving to be the front-facing manager for the team and make the majority of the calls on player transactions.

In addition to his time with the Flames and Maple Leafs, Burke also served as general manager of the Anaheim Ducks, Vancouver Canucks and Hartford Whalers. He won the Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007. He also was the director of player personnel for the U.S. Olympic men’s hockey team for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

“I can’t understand why it was a bombshell, OK?” Khan said during a news conference at EverBank Field hours before the NFL draft. “I have business deals, investments all over the world. So I don’t understand. Every time there’s a transaction that has visibility, especially you folks [the media] start connecting dots that shouldn’t be connected.”

Khan’s purchase of Wembley would add significant additional revenue — such as food and beverage sales and suite revenue — and the team would save money because it would not have to pay rent for its annual home game in London. In addition, Jaguars president Mark Lamping said there were approximately 30 non-NFL games or events held at Wembley and that additional revenue would help financially stabilize the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

The Jaguars have played a home game at Wembley Stadium annually since 2013 and will do so through the 2020 season. The deal has been beneficial to the franchise because the NFL granted the team extended territorial rights in the United Kingdom, and the additional ticket revenue from a game at the 90,000-seat stadium has had a positive impact on the team’s local revenue.

London is an important part of the team’s stability in Jacksonville (the revenue from that annual home game accounts for 11 percent of the team’s total local revenue), and Khan said there were no plans at this time to play any additional games in London each season.

Dickerson’s disputed homer lifts Pirates over Tigers 1-0

Corey Dickerson celebrated his first game-ending home run in the major leagues. Twice.

Dickerson’s disputed one-out drive in the ninth inning that lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Detroit Tigers 1-0 Thursday.

“We’re going to view Jonny in that role, to come in and get a lefty out,” manager Kevin Cash said after an 8-4 win. “I thought it was perfect. It worked out. He came in, got a big out with a two-run lead for us.”

Venters received high-fives and fist bumps in the Tampa Bay dugout because, after all, it was a comeback that everyone could appreciate after all his elbow surgeries.

Hours earlier, Venters was sitting out a rain delay in the minors during a morning game when he got word the Rays were recalling him from Triple-A Durham.

So the 33-year-old hopped into his truck, grabbed a flight to Baltimore and was in the clubhouse when Tampa Bay formally announced the move.

“It’s hard to put into words how I’m feeling. It’s been an emotional day,” Venters said prior to the game. “I’m excited to be here. Grateful for the opportunity. Hopefully go out and get some people out today.”

It’s not so easy to guarantee the Capitals will go shift-for-shift with the Penguins like they did most of Game 1, especially with the potential return of Pittsburgh star Evgeni Malkin. Washington did get as many quality scoring chances, if not more, than Pittsburgh, but those third-period goals by the top line of Patric Hornqvist, Crosby and Jake Guentzel tipped the balance.

It’s the case that began with the NCAA’s infractions around Reggie Bush’s time at Southern California. McNair is claiming defamation after he was caught up as a chief culprit.

A 2012 video deposition of Shep Cooper, who served as a liaison to the Committee on Infractions, took up the bulk of Tuesday’s proceedings before former NCAA investigator Angie Cretors took the stand at the end of the day and remained there through the end of the day Wednesday. Cretors’ testimony will conclude Thursday morning.

The Timberwolves became the first team to be outscored by 30 points in a playoff quarter since May 6, 1986, when the Boston Celtics had a 36-6 advantage over the Atlanta Hawks in the third quarter.

The Rockets shot 14-of-23 from the floor, 9-of-13 from 3-point range and 13-of-13 from the free throw line in the quarter.

Free tickets to NFL draft fetching as much as $300

The NFL draft has turned into a significant event business, as 420,000 people applied for tickets to attend this year at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. And 20 NFL teams have expressed interest in hosting the event over the next five years.

This year’s draft, which begins Thursday night at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, will be the first held in a stadium. Demand has been big enough that free tickets to see the first round in person have sold on eBay for as much as $300 each.

Those who didn’t win tickets to be inside AT&T Stadium still have plenty to do outside. There is an area that is 26 football fields in size and includes a stage where local musicians play, an area where fans can test their 40-yard dash times, and a place to sample food from local restaurants.

“It’s pretty much the opposite of the Super Bowl,” O’Reilly said. “It’s incredibly accessible and anyone can get close to the action for free.”

Linking what happens on stage to off stage takes on a new wrinkle this year.

“This year we took some inspiration from the political conventions and we have team delegations on the floor,” O’Reilly said. “We gave each team 50 tickets and the player will come over to that section to be welcomed after they are drafted.”

Although there’s no immediate revenue to be made by the host team — the league fronts the undisclosed costs to put on the event — there is economic impact locally.

New York was held hitless through five innings and trailed 3-0 before Aaron Hicks’ sacrifice fly in the seventh. Didi Gregorius grounded to third leading off the ninth and reached second when Miguel Sano’s throw went wide for an error.

“I just couldn’t complete the play,” Sano said through a translator.

Giancarlo Stanton followed with a slow roller gloved by a charging Sano, who did not make a throw as Stanton crossed first with an infield hit.

“That’s just a swinging bunt,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “It’s one of those plays where he split (Ehire) Adrianza and Sano there. Either one didn’t have much of a chance.”

Sanchez took a strike, then sent a fastball from Rodney (1-2) down the left-field line and into the lower deck. The Yankees bounded out of the dugout to mob Sanchez as he crossed the plate and doused him with Gatorade.

“If we can get traffic on the bases, we’re always one swing away with our guys,” rookie manager Aaron Boone said.

New York finished an 8-2 homestand and has outscored opponents 47-13 during its winning streak.

“We’ve got a lot of fight in here, a lot of bulldogs,” Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery said.

Hellebuyck smothers Preds as Jets grab 1-0 lead with 4-1 win

Connor Hellebuyck loves what he’s seeing in his first NHL postseason, and the 24-year-old goalie is doing his best to make sure the Winnipeg Jets do much more than just stick around.

Hellebuyck made 47 saves and the Jets beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal between the NHL’s top teams in the regular season.

“You give me two choices on where to be, our game or their win, I’d take the win,” Laviolette said. “It’s about winning hockey games right now.”

The Predators had the sparkling pregame show with the retractable screen dropping from the ceiling and country star Dierks Bentley singing the U.S. anthem, and a couple catfish hit the ice before the puck drop to boot. Then they pelted Hellebuyck with 15 of the first 19 shots.

Then the Jets scored the game’s first goal for a sixth straight playoff game. Tanev’s wrister beat Rinne’s outstretched right skate at 14:51 of the first.

Nashville finished the period with 20 shots, a franchise postseason record for a period, with Hellebuyck continuing his shutout streak started with consecutive shutouts to finish off Minnesota in the first round.

“He was awesome,” Jets forward Blake Wheeler said about Hellebuyck. “They were throwing everything at the net. What we were trying to do in front of him was just get bodies, get sticks, let him see things. You could tell early on if he was seeing the puck he was going to make the stops.”

“I hope you know and others know I’m not the type of person I was at 14 and 15 that I tweeted so recklessly. … I don’t want that to be the impression of who I am because that is not me. I apologize for what I did.”

Allen, who had been seen by many as a potential No. 1 overall pick, was selected seventh by the Buffalo Bills, who traded up to make the pick. Allen was the third quarterback drafted.

The tweets, sent in 2012 and 2013, no longer appear on his account. However, they contained racial slurs and other offensive language, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The former Wyoming quarterback acknowledged the tweets to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith late Wednesday night and apologized, saying he was young and dumb.

Allen told Smith that some of the tweets made reference to rap lyrics and television, including a saying that was part of an episode from the sitcom “Modern Family.”

On ESPN’s First Take on Thursday, NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported that his sources indicated that Allen’s Twitter account was vetted in January and that the offensive tweets were removed then.

Allen told Mortensen he thought he had gone through his Twitter account a year ago.

“I had even typed in keywords to see if anything I had tweeted popped up that I needed to clean up, but nothing like these came up or I just missed them,” Allen said. “My agency went over any past social media, and these didn’t come up after I did the search.”

Believe it! 76ers roll with Meek Mill past Heat in Game 5

Joel Embiid hoisted diminutive comedian Kevin Hart not unlike the way a parent would toss up a toddler. Embiid then pulled him in for a hug as confetti rained on the court, team flags waved around them and the promise of a rowdy late-night celebration was on deck.

Hart grabbed the mic and yelled, “Let’s give it up for Joel Embiid!”

Believe it, Philly.

“For him to come to this type of game … I was just happy,” Embiid said.

Hart talked trash, wandered onto the edge of the court to rile up fans and palled around with Mill as the young and gettin’ it Sixers proved they just might be the team to beat in the East.

They’ll have plenty of time to rest and recover — Embiid again played in a black mask to guard a face injury — with the other Eastern Conference playoff series expected to stretch into the weekend.

Betts got the Red Sox on the scoreboard with leadoff homer in the first — his third such shot of the season and 14th of his career — over the left-field fence. He then put the Red Sox in front for good in the seventh, taking reliever Danny Barnes (1-1) deep over the right-field wall for his eighth homer of the season — a two-run shot that also drove in Brock Holt.

Alex Cora said it is games like this that has Betts keeping the very best of company in the major leagues.

“They’re special,” the Red Sox manager said. “The Trouts, the Altuves, the more at-bats they get the better you feel about it,”

Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez (3-0) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings, throwing a season-high 106 pitches.

One night after giving up a walk-off home run to Curtis Granderson, closer Craig Kimbrel worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his sixth save of the season.

Though Boston has now won all of Rodriguez’s four starts this season, after the recent losing skid, the left-hander was more than happy to give credit to the guy who jump-started the offense.

“We needed something like that, somebody to get us in front and do it like he did it today,” he said.

However, Yangervis Solarte wasn’t handing out much credit after the game. The third baseman’s sixth home run of the season into the second deck of left field in the sixth inning gave Toronto its only lead of the game at 3-2.

Rams trade for Brandin Cooks

The Rams have traded for a wide receiver, but it isn’t Odell Beckham.

Per multiple reports, that the Rams and Patriots have agreed to a trade that will send Brandin Cooks to Los Angeles. The Patriots will also send a fourth-round pick to the Rams while the Rams will send the 23rd pick of this year’s draft and a sixth-round selection to New England.

The Packers must revamp their edge pass rush as they flip their base 3-4 defense to Mike Pettine’s watch. Either Landry or Marcus Davenport makes sense for their scheme as freakish athletes who can wreak havoc in the backfield.

The Cardinals are a team to watch to make a move for a QB in the top five, but with the way things have shaken out in this mock, we still can attach them to Allen at No. 15. Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon were signed in free agency, but neither can be trusted as a solution beyond 2018. Allen needs a little time to hone his accuracy and mechanics to match his arm and athleticism. Arizona’s situation allows for that.

That doesn’t mean the Broncos have everything they want at the position. Finding a consistent third option has been among the team’s offensive issues over the last couple of seasons, which is why they drafted Carlos Henderson in the third round of last year’s draft.

Henderson didn’t provide any help, however, because he missed the entire regular season with a torn ligament in his thumb. Coach Vance Joseph said this week that the team is looking for Henderson to hit the ground running this year.

“We’re counting on that kid to come in and play for us, especially in the slot,” Joseph said, via the Denver Post. “Or even [Sanders] goes to the slot and [Henderson] goes outside. Someone has to go into the slot and win the one-on-ones so we can get fair coverages on third downs.”

The Broncos are short on other options to join Sanders and Thomas in the lineup, so they may go back to the well in this year’s draft to increase their chances of hitting on the right offensive mix.

Kendall Wright visits Vikings

Wide receiver Kendall Wright has visited the Vikings, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Wright, 28, is one of the better players left in free agency. He visited Kansas City last week.

Plays like this have spread around the league: two and even three shooters circle around a screener, sewing confusion about which is the intended shooter. Sometimes, the play is for one of those whirring shooters; Washington runs a few such actions for Bradley Beal.

But sometimes that final shooter stops his cut, veers into the screener’s man, and reveals that the plan all along was to spring that big guy for an open 3-pointer:

Miami runs several versions for Olynyk. Spoelstra is genius about changing the placement, personnel and prelude to Olynyk somehow popping open.

As superior options disappeared amid injuries and tankery, the Hawks gradually let Collins explore the world of working off the dribble in the NBA. This is another version of healthy player development! Collins is fast, with some off-the-bounce skill. A lot of teams defend Collins with their centers — assigning their power forwards to Dewayne Dedmon, since Dedmon has more 3-point range — and that leaves Collins with a quickness advantage.

“The one question that sticks out is I sat down, and the first thing the coach asked me is what I would do if he punched me in the face right now? To me, being from Cleveland, my natural reaction was, ‘Coach, no disrespect but if you punch me in the face, we’re gonna fight right here,’” Baker told USA Today. “That was just my natural response. I guess that’s what he wanted to hear, because he said, ‘Good.’ It was definitely a fun interview. I didn’t get asked too many weird questions.”

Baker said the coach later told him it’s a question he often poses, and he wants to hear players say they’d fight back.

“I crossed paths with him a little later in the day and I asked him why he asked me that,” Baker said. “He said most guys freeze up or say they wouldn’t do anything when he asks them that. He said, ‘I don’t know about you, but if somebody were to randomly punch me in the face right now, I wouldn’t just stand there. I’d fight back.’ I guess he liked my response.”

So remember that in your next job interview: Tell your prospective boss you would hit back if he punched you in the face

Lions could find impact pass rusher after first round

The Relative Athletic Score (RAS) system was developed by Kent Lee Platte in 2012 to provide fans with a contextualized score on a 0-10 scale, making it easier to understand how athletic draft prospects are when compared to their position dating back to 1987.

It’s no secret the Detroit Lions need to add some juice to their pass rush in the 2018 draft. It was a hot topic coming into the 2017 draft, but it was one left largely unaddressed, with only a couple of late-round, athletic, developmental picks, not prospects expected to step in immediately. The 2018 class is not considered an edge heavy class, but if the Lions are to address their pass rush, there are a few clear targets to watch.

This draft class has three possible first-round talents on the edge who could have a similar impact. Bradley Chubb (9.47) is likely out of reach for the Lions, while Harold Landry (9.43) and Marcus Davenport (9.59) could make it to the team’s No. 20 pick, and both have ties to the Lions’ coaching staff.

And, it appears, they are trying to push and challenge quarterback Russell Wilson to a new level of achievement at the precise juncture when both Wilson and the Seahawks are girding for what will almost inevitably be difficult, potentially contentious, contract negotiations.

That last one might prove to be the most difficult balance of all — and inextricably linked to the other two. The extent to which the roster shuffle succeeds, and the rapport which Wilson develops with the new staff, could be influential in forging a productive tenor to the talks.

Let me intercede here to say that few expect this all to end with anything but a long-term extension for Wilson, whose contract has two more years left. Yet just one season remains before the traditional time to work all this out, which would be after the 2018, but before the 2019, season.

In other words, the wild ride is about to begin, and so it’s not surprising that even small signs are going to be pored over for possible significance — by the Seahawks, by Wilson and his handlers, and by the media and fans watching it all from afar.
