I am very honoured to be one of the first 100 teachers on a great new interactive learning website called Curious.com.
Time magazine lists Curious in their top 50 sites for 2013: “This brand-spanking-new site aims to provide an uncommonly inviting place to teach and be taught. Instructors can upload video on any subject — be it salsa dancing or making glogg — then divvy it into lessons. Unlike YouTube, Curious lets teachers choose to charge for lessons, features an oversized playback window and generally feels friendly and constructive. There are no creepy comments from anonymous YouTubers here, and the site’s proprietors currently approve teachers and eyeball content to ensure that these online classes are, well, classy.

Spring is on the way (wishful thinking) and soon we’ll be able to wear necklaces without having them covered with scarves, coats, sweaters, etc. I have a variety of necklaces available for sale on Etsy and am always open to custom orders based on your ideas and sketches…I love a challenge!

I was very surprised the other day when I noticed my Youtube video had over 2000 views! Now I am motivated to make more How-to Videos…coming soon! Talk about Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame!

Patricia Srigley is an author, artist and friend living in Montreal. After many years of creating dramatic and ornate masks in clay, she has developed her own method of glazing with glass that has translated beautifully to jewelry making. See her new pieces in her on-line Etsy shop:
Thanks so Bryan at Emphasis Sports Marketing http://www.emphasissportsmarketing.com/ for requesting these designs.
I began an interest in the Montreal Canadiens when Myriam’s half sister came to visit last year from France. All her boyfriend wanted to do was see a hockey game, so I splurged and got tickets for the two of them to go. Not to be left out, I took Myriam to a nearby resto/bar and we watched the game on the big screen while indulging in pizza and (root) beer!!! I had made Melodie a pair of wire Canadiens earrings to wear to the game and have since made beaded versions of the logo as earrings, pendants and ornaments. (I give these to friends as gifts…they are not available for sale due to copyright laws). A couple weeks ago I had a “flash” that I had to make myself an artsy Habs t-shirt. The shirt was created by cutting up old t-shirts into the shapes of the Canadiens logo and loosely stitching them onto one of my existing shirts. Very easy and fun!
