When I got the assignment for this particular scroll, I already had an idea for the art. Eynon's persona is a 13th c Welsh archer (which is great for an archery award), but writing the text was going to present some challenges. Part of the reason for the challenge was that I really wanted to … Continue reading Eynon’s Boga Hirth Scroll
Nikolai’s Herald Extraordinary Scroll
When Brigida Gold Falcon reached out to me for a scroll commission, and I got the details, I squee'd. A lot. You see, when I got started in the Society, I needed to work on clothing, and a friend of mine had a quiet place behind a table. The herald's table. So, I sat … Continue reading Nikolai’s Herald Extraordinary Scroll
KWHSS and yet another scroll diary.
KWHSS was a blast. I got to hang out with my brothers, the Four Horsemen of the College of Arms, picked up some scribal goodies (and yet, somehow managed to stay under budget), and learned a lot. Plus, oh, the networking. Also, next year is in Calontir. Come see me. Come take some classes. … Continue reading KWHSS and yet another scroll diary.
Time for All Things to End
I am stepping down from my post as Baronial A&S champion this weekend (it was supposed to be earlier this year, but we ended up moving the event due to inclement weather) - so I had some time to finish off some things that I wanted to do. I perhaps was not as active of … Continue reading Time for All Things to End
Snorri’s Hammer Scroll, or how to pick your battles
This is actually a project from last year (December!) that I've finally got some time to blog about now. I got a scroll assignment from the Royal Scribe for Damien and Issabell and I was immediately inspired to Do Something Cool. Plan 1: do a runestone. I should preface this with I was on furlough … Continue reading Snorri’s Hammer Scroll, or how to pick your battles
2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Looking back at my SCA resolutions from last year, and I got none of them done. Sigh. Not. A. One. Now, to be fair, my modern work life was in a crap-ton of flux, but I'm hoping for much smoother sailing this year. Goals #1 (actually finish a project before taking on another one) and #5 … Continue reading 2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Elspeth of Stonehaven’s Calon Lily
One of the first people I ever met in the SCA was given her Calon Lily this weekend for embroidery, and lucky me, I was given the privilege to not only write her scroll text, but also do the calligraphy and illumination. Countess Elspeth has a Scots persona, and so I used a framework consisting … Continue reading Elspeth of Stonehaven’s Calon Lily
Secret Project Roundup
I mentioned in Teaser! that I had a lot of secret projects. And most of them came to fruition yesterday. So, this post will be all about those secret projects. My house has been the Pelican medallion factory as of late. One of those was presented last week at Master Mathurin's ceremony. It's small, about … Continue reading Secret Project Roundup
Scrolls and banners and joy, oh my!
I'm going to say it, to hardly anyone's surprise: I love shenanigans. And when my Laurel, Bess, contacted me for two big, very awesome ones, I was going to do them. My apprentice-sister Mergriet Van Wijenhorst (or Griet, as we all call her), was granted admittance and elevated into the Order of the Laurel in … Continue reading Scrolls and banners and joy, oh my!
A Heraldic Post
One of the things that I am allowed to do, as both a member of the College of Arms and specifically as a Principal Herald is that I have an opportunity to promote heralds to a rank within the College of Arms called the Herald Extraordinary. This, per the July 1981 LoAR, found here, states … Continue reading A Heraldic Post
