Well, it looks like we had this ref after all for Saturday's game! We ended up losing ( but not really ) 2 - 3 in overtime. We have watched the replay on tv over and over again, and the puck never crossed the goal line! So, our bid to make it to State has ended for this season, and I guess life goes on. All I can say is that I wouldn't be so thrilled to get to State by means of a huge blunder!

So, on to life as normal...I got back from Milwaukee last night, and am now on to unpacking, inventory, and getting orders done and shipped. I had a great meeting with a store there, Urban Laundry, and they are now carrying my work. Thanks Jeni! They are in the village of Wauwatosa on Harwood Ave, amongst a whole bundle of other awesome little shops! After the appointment, before heading out for the 5 hour drive home, I stopped next door for lunch at Le Reve Patissere & Cafe. This is a photo of my Chicken Forestiere Crepe and I can honestly say that is ranks in the Top 10 meals that I have ever eaten! If you are ever in the area, I recommended you stop in to BOTH shops! Off to work!

Glad we won't have this ref for Saturday's game! Just a quick photo tonight, then I am off to finish a big batch of new earrings! Etched copper and brass! I will try to post a photo of them after I get back from Milwaukee...if there are any left! : )

Too close for comfort!

Well our girls won again last night, 2 - 1 over White Bear Lake! It was a close one though, they waited to get the winning goal until there were only 19 secondes left! Kendal took a slapshot from the point, and Bethany tipped it in! Very exciting! Now we play for the Section Championship on Saturday against Stillwater.

I am off to the studio to continue making pieces for my Rep. Here is a photos of one of them!

Happy Valentine's day!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! Looks like I get to spend it with my sweetie in an ice arena...we are so romantic! : ) Wow, the weeks go by SO fast! Our girls won 9 - 0 last night, so it is on to the next game on Tuesday! We are in full work mode here today in the CB&CO studio! It has gotten down into the 20's again here is Minnesota, so it will be nice to be working away in a warm place!

Game Day!

It's game day here, and we are so excited! I finished up the necklaces for the team last night and handed them out at practice, I forgot to take a picture, but will get one posted when Kendal gets home from school! GO RAIDERS!!
So it is back to the studio to continue making samples for my line, 7 pieces ready to go, about 43 left! I have made them all before, and do have more completed, I just need to pull them from my inventory. I am hoping to come up with a few totally new designs as well. Oh, and getting stock ready for my Milwaukee show next weekend! Better get to work, have a great day!

Wow, it's Thursday!

Where does the week go? One more day 'till game day, it is our first section game here tomorrow, and the girls are really excited! Last night they made t-shirts to wear for Friday, and tonight will be a carbo load to get them ready for tomorrow!

I'm off to the studio to finish up a big batch of necklaces I made to give the girls, and then onto making samples for my Rep! March 10th is going to come all too quickly, that is when everything needs to be in the mail for her!

If you are in the Milwaukee area on the 22nd, stop by the Wyndham Hotel from 10 - 4 for the Milwaukee Bead Show, hosted by Knot Just Beads!

Have a great day!

I have a Rep!

Mixed emotions this morning, after I was taken on by a Rep yesterday! I am really excited, but panicked at the same time. I have a lot to do in a small amount of time, getting my line ready, creating display boards, plus keeping up on orders and getting ready for shows!

Hockey season is winding it's way towards the finale, we are getting ready to start section playoffs this Friday and are excited to see how the team does. It's a bit scary being ranked #1 in the state going into playoffs, as it does tend to put a bigger target on your back, but the girls are playing great!

Off to the studio!
