Rammstein in Montreal

At the beginning of this year I never dreamed I would be going to Montreal, Quebec. Nor did it cross my mind that I would go there specifically for a concert... a German lyric industrial metal concert. But I am.

My husband, at the suggestion of someone else, told me to look up this band, Rammstein, last year. We looked up the video for Du Hast. It was good, but because it was German and we didn't fully understand it, we both dismissed it for several months until in March of this year, when we watched XXX. The band playing a concert in the move sounded familiar. My husband was sure it was the same band, so I googled it. Sure enough, it was. But this time was different. Something clicked. We went out and bought two albums. Then I bought another for my husband's birthday a few days later.

I let my sister listen to one cd. I didn't think she would have liked it at all. But to my surprise, she was hooked too.

I listen to Rammstein every time I get in my vehicle. I own every album I could find. My eldest will change the CD to the radio once in a while, but my seven -year-old will complain and ask for Rammstein to be put back on.

Anyway, my sister found out they were going to be in Montreal in December. We were both excited. Tickets, flights and hotels were booked almost immediately. Call it an early Christmas/birthday present (x3 years). I am excited. So is she.

Hopefully I can get a few pictures of Montreal when we are there and I can share a bit of that part of the world with you too. Now I better go study up on my French and German!

Here is a link to the video for Du Hast:

New and Old Stuff

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Whistlestop Craft Show last weekend. It was nice seeing everyone, as always.

Here is one of the compliations of new items I have available. Some of the items may have sold already, but it gives you an idea of what I am doing. If there is anything you see that you would like, please contact me and we can work out the details.

Most of these are jelly spoons. Pendants, keychains, earrings, and a bracelet are also included.

I have been trying to update my website for a little while now, but I am unable to edit it. I have contacted vistaprint 3 times now and they all say it is a problem on my end, even though I have tried it on several computers, not all my own. Because of this, do not bother to check it out for now. If I am able to access it again, I will let you know. I was planning on upgrading my package so I could have a paypal cart on it and sell directly off of the site. Oh, well, I guess that will have to wait.

November 20, 2010 I will be in Estevan, Saskatchewan for the Kinnettes Club Craft Sale held at the Wylie Mitchelle Building. If you happen to be around, make sure you stop in. It is a really good show!
