Snippets...

Been a busy few days, so I'll catch up with a few tidbits of what's been going on...

The press conference yesterday went really well and both the producer of the television series and the channel broadcasting the show seemed quite pleased with the musical performance we put on (read about the rehearsal here). We found out for sure that the episode on our group, Arashi Daiko, will premiere on ARTV on Saturday July 5th at 8pm, and re-broadcast the following Tuesday at 9:30am and Thursday at 7pm. I'm looking forward to each and every episode though, and not just ours!

ARTV is a French language pay tv channel here in Canada, so I'm not sure how many of you would actually be able see it. We actually have to ask someone to tape it for us since we don't have cable. Did up some quick articles for our community newspaper this morning, to make sure everyone will be watching... ☺

I have to thank Charmaine aka High Desert Diva, for sending me a beautifully packaged gift to thank me for simply helping her a little with her blog layout. Of course I have no photos of the initial package since I tore into it like an excited 6-year-old on Christmas morning. Inside was this wonderful assortment of cat beads and a beautiful note in a little handmade accordion book! You are too kind, Charmaine. Thanks so much!


JF made bread the other day, and instead of letting it cook in the bread machine, he took it out and formed loaves. Aren't they lovely? Great texture on this bread, I must say. And not weapon-like & dangerous, like the other hard and heavy loaves he made a couple weeks ago.


Got another wholesale order to work on from a jewellery boutique in California (yaaaay!); gotta get this out on Monday to give Mother's Day shoppers time to shop ☺

I have a few new items up in my shop, and have to get more uploaded since I will be having a sale this week-end. Woo-hoo!


I also have to get my stock up for a show I'm doing on May 10th in Canada's capital, Ottawa, the Westend Artisan Crafters Market.
And... tomorrow will by my 100th post! I made it!!! Who'd a-thunk it? I will be having a give-away to celebrate, so stay tuned...

Always wanted to do taiko since it's in our culture too. One day perhaps! Beautiful packages with beaitiful things are always a pleasure to get. The bread looks oishi too. Hey, I hope the old dangerous weapon-ones can be used for taiko! And congratulations on yr 100th!!!

The new bread looks delicious, isn't the smell of fresh bread just the best? And congratulations on your wholesale order, everything is going well for you,
