Now that things are starting to kick back into gear, courts are happening again, and life is slowly starting to return to a new sense of "normal," it also means that my scribal slate is starting to fill with activities and assignments again. Back around the very end of last year, I got asked "hey, … Continue reading Silver Hammer for John Bowyer and other good news
A thought. SCAdians are really bad about respecting the work of others. Hear me out. Because our culture is very much a DIY culture, it is quite easy to go "psh, I can make that - for cheaper than *that guy* is charging" without really thinking about the actual material and labour costs of what … Continue reading Omphaloskepsis: But I Can Do It Cheaper!

I perhaps was not as active of … Continue reading Time for All Things to End

You may remember the carved Pelican medallion I made a few entries ago. After buying a jeweler's saw and blades, I cut the … Continue reading Barony of Forgotten Sea Arts and Sciences Championship
Yeah, I've had a lot of secret projects on my plate (which means there will be post about them as things happen). This, however, is a not-so-secret one, of which there will be an upcoming tutorial on. I'm also procraftinating. Bezants! Or, enaBLING as it happens. They are super easy and great for 14th c, … Continue reading Teaser!
