Astryda Borowska - Order of the Silver Crecent

Took on this assignment and was at a loss for what to do for illumination. I”d did some searching through the EK Wiki and browsed through her husband”s blog but had a really hard time coming up with ideas. So I set upon creating the words to see if that would give me some inspiration, […]

Kenneric Aubrey - OSB

And this is how you end up with multiple assignments, knowing people. A Facebook group chat was formed and I found myself in the middle of happy exclamations that this was, in fact, going to be a thing! I”d written Kenneric in for a Silver Brooch, but it didn”t get much traction. This time, however, […]

Alastar Tucker - OSB

I”ll admit, I was a little giddy when the Signet reached out to me about this assignment. I already had two others on my plate for the end of the month, but they were calligraphy only. I”m quite happy that through some careful planning I was able to wiggle this into the space between the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Robert Tytes - Order of the Golden Rapier

This was my first Gold level award that was actually assigned!  The other’s I’ve done, I was requested, but the Signit didn’t reach out to me initially.  So this is kind of a big deal for me. I’ve been wanting to do another German style scroll for a while now.  As luck would have it, […]

Muirenn ingen Dunadaig - Concordian order of the Pine

This was one of the drafts that were lost in the crash.  Muirenn has been a long time friend and I was tickled when I was asked to do this scroll for her.  This scroll was done in tandem with another scroll (AoA).  The Joys of being a Kingdom and Baronial scribe is sometimes you […]

Symon of Barnsdale - Order of the Silver Wheel

This was a fun one!  As I started digging to see what I could do for Illumination and style, I found out that Symon is a fellow member of the Webministry, on the Kingdom level.  Because the idea was a little… “out there” I ran the idea by the submitter, who ran it by Symon’s […]

James Hawk Galloway - Order of the Burdened Tyger

I was pretty jazzed when I was approached for this one.  James “Hawk”, has been a good friend of the family for a while.  I was a little surprised that Hawk didn’t already have this award. Reaching out to the point of contact for additional information was a blast.  He spun a great tale of […]
