Although this site was new-ish last year, I still did a year in review post. Having survived another year, I thought it only appropriate to do it again. Only this time, you'll forgive me if I don't bother hunting down all the links. This site has a search function, and everything's tagged, so if you … Continue reading 2017: In Review
Once more to the Ren Faire! If you're interested in what happened the last week, you can find that here. I didn't go with the group this time, though we certainly crossed paths a few times while we were there. It was just me and my kid sister.

It arrived today, with a week and a half until the new season opens. Even … Continue reading Custom Surcoat
You might remember in an earlier blog where I mentioned that I wanted to make more trips to the Dallas Museum of Art? Well, it turns out I have an excuse to not only go more often, but to become a member as well, if last night was any indication. Last night was so much … Continue reading Medieval Night at the DMA
Today just became a day centered around Scarborough Renaissance Festival, and we're still just shy of three months away. First, I've been working with the good people at Wyvern Productions on getting a custom surcoat made with my coat of arms on it. They sent over the digital proof of the embroidery this morning, and … Continue reading Preparing for Scarborough
I have secured tickets for my favorite time of the year! No, no, I pre-ordered my Star Wars tickets when they were made available. You knew that already. My other favorite time of the year! Scarborough Renaissance Festival opens on April 8, and I now have tickets for me and my group. One more thing to … Continue reading Prepared For Merriment!
