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 :

Je vous laisse décourvrir le flyer de l’événement, ainsi que toutes les informations nécessaires pour vous y rendre.

Voilà, vous savez tout et j’espère que toutes ces news vous plairont. N’hésitez pas à me communiquer vos impressions, ainsi qu’à partager toutes ces informations.

A très vite, pour la suite des aventures…

Fairy Yours

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie grabbed headlines in April when he reportedly told other owners behind closed doors that Trump was leading one disastrous presidency.

Trump has often used the controversy stirred by protests during the national anthem inspired by Colin Kaepernick for political gains. In a deposition earlier this year, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly said Trump told him it’s a very winning, strong issue for me and that it lifts me.

Getting ahead of Trump’s attempts to use the NFL as political leverage was a large part of the reason why a new national anthem policy was passed in May.

But the abiding buildup is tiring and burdensome. They are human. No one likes their art, their achievements smeared.

I find the Patriots inside assaults most fascinating.

Football has always been a constant in my life and I’m excited about the unique opportunity to present America’s favorite sport to fans in a new way, said Luck in a league press release. The XFL will create first-class organizations that local cities across the country will be proud of.

Luck brings a wealth of experience from former jobs as the athletics director of West Virginia, CEO of the Houston Sports Authority, and, most recently, the head of regulatory affairs with the NCAA. He is also the father of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

As evidenced by chairman Vince McMahon’s strange introductory press conference in January, this league will be different. Featuring eight teams, 40-man rosters and a 10-game season, it will fill the offseason void for football. But it won’t be with flare.

It will not hire players who have arrest records, McMahon said. And it will make sure that all of its players stand for the national anthem, a policy that stands in stark contrast to the NFL. The more family friendly XFL even comes through in the league’s new red-white-and-blue logo, as opposed to ’01’s in-your-face black-and-red one. We want to entertain — that’s what we do, McMahon told The Daily. There are not going to be any politics involved with this thing. We’re not going to have any social issues involved. People want to be entertained. … It’s the entertainment value that sometimes is lost.

What should be the Lakers’ approach to a potential Kawhi Leonard trade?

Pelton: I would be cautious. Yes, the example of Paul George shows that players can be swayed by good experiences with new teams. But George and Leonard are different people in different situations, and the opposite is also true: The Lakers could deal for Leonard and end up losing him anyway, as happened with Dwight Howard. And Leonard isn’t their only option in 2019 free agency, so better for the Lakers to hold on to their young prospects — necessary pieces to complement LeBron and another star.

Snellings: Not at this moment, but they aren’t nearly as far away as one might think. They have four very young but very talented players on roster in Ball, Ingram, Julius Randle and Kuzma. They have the potential to re-sign a (in theory) healthy Isaiah Thomas for what would be an extremely interesting reunion with James, and that would give them more high-level firepower. They could be one superstar trade (Leonard?) or signing (DeMarcus Cousins?) away from making things very interesting.

MacMullan: The Lakers at this exact moment are still pretenders when you whip out that Golden State measuring stick and size up their roster. But that could change in a hurry if a certain two-way star with a cranky quadriceps somehow extricates himself from one of the most revered teams in the league. No Kawhi, no title.

Entertaining extension talks with Love makes sense if the plan is to retool rather than fully rebuild.

The fact that Klay Thompson (free agent in 2019) and Draymond Green (2020) will bypass extension talks this summer does not mean that the pair is eventually leaving in free agency.

Thompson is eligible for a four-year, $102 million extension, roughly $86 million less than what he can sign for in 12 months. While we don’t know if the guard will give Golden State a hometown discount then, he’s not sacrificing that kind of long-term money now.

Because Green is an extra year away from free agency, the forward can add only three years and $71 million to the $36 million left on his contract. As with Thompson, an extension for Green is a non-starter.

Tigers outfielder Leonys Martin left with a sore left hamstring after his bases-loaded bunt single in the fifth brought home Detroit’s first run.

Martin was replaced by Victor Reyes.

Following the game, Gardenhire said Martin would be placed on the 10-day disabled list. A corresponding roster move will be made before Monday afternoon’s series finale.

Castellanos followed with his 13th home run, a shot that bounced off the top of the wall in right. It was his first grand slam since Sept. 8, 2017, also against Toronto.

Castellanos also made a fine catch in right, reaching back to grab Russell Martin’s line drive for the final out of the fourth.

Blue Jays RHP John Axford complied a list of more than 500 songs by Canadian artists and has been playing his mix in the clubhouse all weekend. Axford’s `Oh Canada!’ playlist can be streamed using the online music service Spotify.

There weren’t any homers while the teams combined for 15 runs and 25 hits. But there were nine extra-base hits, including five doubles by the White Sox. Joey Gallo had a two-run triple for the Rangers on a ball that was misplayed in the gap by Engel, the center fielder, and Garcia, who was playing right.

Rougned Odor reached all five times, a career high, with two walks and three singles for Texas. … Soria recorded his second save of at least four outs this season. … Hamels had at least seven strikeouts without a walk for the first time in almost two years. … Garcia’s four hits were a season high, and Abreu matched his best this year with three RBI.

White Sox: LF Leury Garcia left after striking out in the fifth inning with a jammed finger on his left hand. He will re-evaluated Monday.

Rangers: Manager Jeff Banister was noncommittal on the next outing for LHP Martin Perez (right elbow). He’s had two straight scoreless rehab outings. Perez has been on the disabled list since April 30.

Bucs releasing guard J.R. Sweezy Jersey

The Buccaneers aren’t going to spend any more time waiting for J.R. Sweezy to get healthy.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Bucs are releasing the veteran guard.

Of course, it’s entirely possible (if not probable) that the league cut the suspension in half simply as part of the effort to make a deal with Winston, pursuant to which he wouldn’t file an internal appeal (or external litigation) and he would in turn control the messaging, in an effort to best conceal the details as to what he did and, in turn, to prevent a #MeToo firestorm that could result in the Buccaneers having no choice but to part ways with him.

So where is the letter that the league sent to Winston explaining the basis for the punishment? You know, the multi-page letter outlining everything he did wrong, signed by an NFL executive?

Then, there’s Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who traveled to Haiti on a humanitarian trip for the second consecutive summer.

The Dareus Foundation donated $125,000 to fund a three-classroom building, which Christ-Roi Primary School of Cammy will name after him.

It is one thing to give money to something and hope for the best; it is quite something else to witness your efforts and see the gratitude and thankfulness of not just the children, but the whole community, for doing what you’re doing, Dareus said, via John Reid of the Jacksonville Times-Union. To receive their blessings and hear their words of appreciation directly was something I could have never imagined several years ago. Their gratitude and happiness was overwhelming and showed me that what I am doing is going to have a tremendous impact on their lives.″

Keyshawn Johnson says there’s something wrong mentally with Jameis Winston

As the Court of Big Shield continues to ponder the fate of Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, the court of public opinion continues to issue verdicts, one pundit and/or former player at a time.

Even though every team wants to win, it’s more important to attract and retain customers. If Winston ever becomes radioactive from a P.R. standpoint, no amount of winning will matter. And the fact that there hasn’t been all that much winning on his watch won’t help him.

Again, Burress might have been remembering his own situation. In 2008, he was coming off an ankle injury, and wanted to sign a new deal before the season to offer himself some protection. He skipped offseason practices, but showed up at training camp and mostly rode a stationary bike until just before the start of the season, when the five-year deal came.

It became about the (other) guys, Burress said. You try to handle your business as you should. I’m really close with a lot of the guys I played with. We were coming off a championship. Sitting down talking with those guys was like, ‘It’s not about them. It’s about us.’ We had a great team back then. Hopefully, those same thoughts go through (Odell’s) mind and he’s able to make the decision to show up and perform.

I hope that he doesn’t let that affect him going into training camp. I say just go pay the guy so they can put all that behind them and everybody goes into a season with a tremendous focus of winning another championship.

Do you think Phil Murphy is stalling to sign the bill to legalize sports betting?

Governor Phil Murphy said Friday he doesn’t have a timetable for when he’ll sign a bill authorizing legal sports betting in New Jersey, but he insisted he’s not sitting on it.

Boston is set at shortstop with Xander Bogaerts. But the Red Sox are getting uneven production from 21-year-old Rafael Devers at third.

Whoemever trades for Machado will be getting a short-term rental, since he’s scheduled to become a free agent after the 2018 season.

Yanks, Sox chasing ‘elite’ reliever?

Both he and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper could be looking at free agent deals approaching $400 million, especially if deep-pocket teams like the Yankees and Phillies are interested.

Although Aaron Judge was homering a little more frequently as a rookie last season and Gary Sanchez’s sophomore season was almost as good as his first, the 2017 Yankees were a lot more inconsistent than this year’s club.

The fate of New Jersey sports betting is now in Murphy’s hands after both houses of the state Legislature voted overwhelmingly Thursday to pass the bill, which would regulate and tax such wagering online and in person at the Garden State’s casinos and racetracks.

Do you think Phil Murphy is sitting on it when it comes to legalizing sports betting?

Phones must be set to silent or vibrate and may only be used for texting/emailing if players are not in position nearby. Phone calls are only permitted in designated areas of the course.

Wi-Fi Zones: The USGA provides complimentary Wi-Fi in the FanZone, which is located to the right of the 17th green and left of the 12th hole. In addition, Wi-Fi will be available in grandstands throughout the grounds.

How Saquon Barkley reacted to seeing my dumb Tweet

Barkley’s rare combination of speed and strength made him a viral sensation at Penn State, both on the field and in the weight room. It followed him to the NFL Combine, where he put together one of the all-time best all-around showcases in front of scouts.

When Barkley threw out the first pitch at a Yankee Stadium after being drafted No. 2 overall by the Giants, photos of his quad muscles circulated social media. Giants teammate Odell Beckham popularized the nickname Saquads, which appears to be sticking.

Barkley wore a jersey with Saquads on the back during the Landon Collins Celebrity Softball Game to benefit the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund.

Mater Dei (New Monmouth, N.J.) rising junior Clarence Lewis showed up for the second half of the East Coast Elite Camp and earned an offer due to his length (6-0, 180), long arms, athletic frame, and testing results. Lewis participated in a few one-on-ones, as well. Rutgers becomes the second school to offer, following Virginia Tech, which offered over a week ago at a camp at Monmouth. And Monday, Kent State became the third schoool to offer, as it had its entire staff on site for the camp.

NJ Advance Media caught up with Lewis at the event prior to his workout, and he was pumped for the opportunity to compete. Ultimately, he did what he showed up to do, leading to he and his mom being walked to their car by head coach Chris Ash following the event, and being extended an offer.

I didn’t do enough in spring training to kind of push them into putting me on the team, LeBlanc said. It’s as simple as that. Their evaluation in spring training was spot on. I wasn’t very good. So anybody that’s saying that the Yankees missed on somebody… all they had to go off of was what they saw in spring training.

Still, just two days later after being let go by the Yanks, LeBlanc signed a guaranteed one-year, $650,000 deal for a second stint with another of his former clubs, as the Mariners were looking for a veteran reliever after losing righty David Phelps for the season in March with a torn UCL.

You go where you think the opportunity is best, and if it’s not, you kind of audible out and see what else is out there, said LeBlanc, a 33-year-old from Louisiana.

No one, not even LeBlanc, imagined what would happen next.

His season got off to a poor start, as he pitched to a 4.61 ERA over five April relief outings for Seattle, then he went on the best roll of his career after replacing injured righty Erasmo Ramirez in the rotation on May 3.

Rays ace Blake Snell ties AL strikeout record

The Rays may have found a new ace.

Blake Snell tied an American League record Sunday in an outing against the Mariners by striking out the first seven batters he faced. Snell matched the mark set by former White Sox pitcher Joe Cowley of the White Sox from 1986, and was matched by Carlos Rodon in 2016.

With Graham and Willson gone, Nick Vannett is the best remaining option. Ed Dickson was signed from the Panthers, and Will Dissly was drafted. Although Dickson has proved he can do well catching passes in a pinch, he and Dislsly will be blockers for the most part.

Vannett has some untapped receiving upside Schottenheimer will try to find. But in the quest to replace Graham’s double-digit touchdowns, it’s more about Marshall, who scored a career-high 14 times just a few seasons ago.

The Astros took an early lead on a two-RBI double by Jose Altuve in the first inning and plated two runs in the fifth to double their lead to 4-0.

Kansas City scored twice in the bottom of that frame. But catcher Max Stassi blasted a three-run homer one inning later to help the Astros pull away.

Dallas Keuchel picked up the win for the Astros after he allowed two runs, none earned, in six innings on the mound. Royals starter Danny Duffy pitched six innings and surrendered seven runs, six earned.

Bruce Rondon allowed two hits and one run while recording just a single out in the White Sox’ 7-5 loss to the Tigers. He also walked two batters.

Angels reliever Noe Ramirez surrendered three runs in his one inning on the mound against the Athletics. He picked up his third loss of the season in a 6-4 defeat.

Chargers contact Antonio Gates about possible reunion

The Chargers took the first step toward a possible reunion with Antonio Gates, contacting the tight end’s representation.

Well, yes, but mostly no. Arrested players — on all NFL teams — are overwhelmingly well-paid adults who attended colleges on full scholarships.

That’s not a nationwide problem, that’s an NFL problem, the kind that makes civilized fans want to take off, or at least take a knee.

Perhaps Michael Kay, during his Yankees radio days, was irreversibly inculcated by John Sterling’s hysterical, all-the-same and often dead-wrong home run calls. But TV is a different animal — unless you’re one to ignore what you see to believe what you’re told.

Wednesday on YES, the Nationals’ Juan Soto hit a what-the-heck new Yankee Stadium-ridiculous home run. It was an opposite field pop-up, a former can of corn that nonetheless cleared the wall in left by less than not much.

I’ve always crossed that bridge when it happened, Suggs said, via the Baltimore Sun. I’ve never been one to jump into that topic before it was time. So I’m not going to worry about it now. There’s something more important that’s at stake right now.

With both sides apparently in no hurry to end a long working relationship, there wouldn’t seem to be much reason to worry about hammering out another deal even if it doesn’t happen before the calendar flips to 2019.

Conway appeared on CNN, where she was asked about the brouhaha following Trump’s disinviting the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles to the White House.

Host John Berman asked her to comment about whether Trump had indeed been demanding that NFL players express their patriotism.

The problem with the president of the United States, and the commander of cheese – chief – expressing that opinion is what? Conway said.

Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark) milked the flub on Twitter for all it’s worth.

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow II is facing a multitude of serious legal charges after being arrested for the second time in less than a week.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Winslow was taken into custody on Thursday, just hours after the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department put out a warrant for his arrest. Although authorities didn’t offer any details on the case, we do know that Winslow has been hit with a total of nine charges, including two counts of kidnapping with the intent to commit rape and two counts of forcible rape.

Although Winslow spent 10 seasons in the NFL, the 34-year-old never lived up to the hype that came with being the sixth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. Winslow’s biggest season came in 2007, when earned a Pro Bowl berth with the Browns after catching 82 passes for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns. During his 10-year career, Winslow played for the Browns (2004-08), Buccaneers (2009-11), Patriots (2012) and Jets (2013). Winslow is the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, who spent nine seasons with the Chargers before retiring in 1987.

That was John Daly’s reasoning when he pulled a similar stunt at the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst, saying it was his response to poor pin positions.

He was talking to the scoring official and said, ‘Whatever I get, I get. Just tell me what it is,’ said Connor Buff, the standard bearer on the course, as he stood next to the 18th green.

He had a +17 next to Mickelson’s score, but admitted that he didn’t know if it should be a +18. Andrew Beef Johnston, his playing partner, seemed like he was in a state of giddy disbelief for the final five holes.

Oh, the golf nerds might have held it against him for a while, but the rest of the world would have laughed it off. So why did Mickelson have to pretend he was the smartest man in the room?

I played Augusta National. It did not go well
