Lady Hilde Perdue - OSB

This was a fun one. Originally we had not planned to go to the Barony Beyond the Mountain / Bergental Yule. A friend was getting elevated to the Order of the Pelican, but we didn’t think we could swing the logistics of it. Our friend, Jen, offered up her family to dog-sit Ivy, in exchange […]

Muirenn Ingen Broein Meic Riain - AoA

This scroll was a trial. It just didn’t’ want to be. The first attempt was going really well. The paper and ink were getting along pretty well. It was a recycled paper that I’d inherited and I used Noodler’s Bulletproof Black, which is a pretty well-behaved ink. There were some spots that had not been […]

Kyra - AoA

Short quick Award of arms. Her Highness Margarita of the East was listed as the point of contact. She was able to provide some information that I could use for the words. Words: Let it be known to all that We, Luis Rei and Margarita Reina of the East have found the many good works […]

Matthias von Wurzburg - OSC

Another scroll for a member of the Webministry (sysadmins and web administrators). I was doubly surprised when I was sapped for this as not only was it for someone in the East Kindom (EK) Webministry, but it was also submitted by a good friend of mine, Joel (Lord) Messerer. Joel provided a wonderfully rich write-up […]

Trying the Left

NE New York Girl Scouts Demo 2019

Date: 8 June 2019Lesson: Gothic Blackletter This was a very free-form thing. Our scribes that participated were on Cobblestone way, which was the Arts & Sciences (A&S) Petting Zoo. We had all kinds of A&S examples of how things were done and most of the exhibits had something hands-on for the girls to try. In […]

K&Q Archery Champions 2019

King’s Archery Champion: My first set of champions scrolls! I spent a month trying to figure out just what to do for these. I couldn’t decide between this style or something with more illumination. Due to several life events happening, this style won out. Given everything that’s been going on, I’m very happy with how […]

Amia Turner - OSC

I was very happy to get a message from Fiona, letting me know that my apprentice sibling Amia was getting her Silver Crescent. I fired off a quick e-mail to the Tiger Signet (keeper of the scroll assignments) to put my name on the list for it, once the assignment was created. The words were […]
