Reenacting is a fun and rewarding hobby. Whether you portray famous historical figures or your own fictional character, reenacting is a form of time travel for those of us who feel they were born in the wrong era. However, reenacting can be overwhelming and very expensive. I hope through this blog to help those new to the hobby, or even those veteran reenactors, to enjoy reenacting without breaking the bank. Blog posts will address things like developing your character, traditions and etiquette for different time periods, and affordable but accurate clothing options. So step back in time to days gone by...

Busy, busy, busy!

Wow-it's been a while since my last post but things have been very hectic around here.
My novel, Truer Words, is in production and has required much of my attention (more info on a release date will be posted soon:).

In addition to working on my novel, we have attended several reenactments which, of course, means sewing dresses and making bonnets.
Christine and I made the blue plaid dress below.
The bonnet was made from a straw hat.

Hubby and I at the Battle of Port Royal Sound.
I made the cape too:).

We also attended the Battle of Secessionville with our friend, Lynn.
And yes, I made another new dress and bonnet.
Hubby and I at a friend's birthday party at Pick Pocket Plantation.

Lynn and I at the Honey Horn reenactment.

 Hubby and I dressed for the Christmas parade.
(yes, I am wearing another new dress-what can I say-once you learn how to make them it's hard to stop:)!
Hubby and I just before the parade.
Don't worry-I'm not riding the bike...
I'm riding in the 1952 convertible Cadillac with Millie, Tiffany, and Mr. Keith.
Hubby rode the bike!

I have missed everyone!!! I am extremely busy and hope to visit all of you very soon.
Until then, God Bless you all!
