Avacal Arts & Science Championship

I’m super-excited to share some really happy news – the recent posts I shared were all leading up to a really big announcement:

I won Avacal (my SCA Kingdom)’s Arts & Science Championship!

You might remember that I posted about my intent to compete back in January – and I’m super happy that I was also able to complete some of my stretch goals to give extra dimension to my projects. Mind you… it also means I still have a long to-do list of things I still want to try!

Now… why is it taking me this long to share?

I had written all the posts about my A&S projects before the championship, but queued them up to post AFTER the competition… (not because I didn’t want to share my process with people, but I just had so many posts to go out before that!)


Several people took copies of my documentation home with them, and I had lots of really great compliments on my research and documentation – along with requests for copies, so I figured I’d load them up here to share with people.

My projects included (click the link for the PDF of my documentation)
