Yes, I am jumping on the bandwagon. I usually don’t review my past projects, but I decided, why not. I also have a rough plan for the projects this year. Now, this, of course, is not set in stone, but it’s a basic outline. Here goes!
This year was quite the rollercoaster for Aaron and I personally and professionally. We went from planning to purchase a practice, to having that fall through and staying in Oregon, which was a huge blessing, to my grandfather’s illness, and Aaron’s graduation, to our move, and finally, my very sudden resignation. I am truly glad that 2010 is over and I am ready to begin 2011.
On the costume front, things felt rather slow for me. However, I learned a lot of new techniques and I began sewing for other people, something which I plan to do more of this year. I also started dipping my toes into the 1940’s and Dieselpunk. To top it all off, we started our own reenacting group, Le Bon Ton. It was quite the year!
Now onto the costumes from 2010…

Well, that is the personal so far. We shall see how many of these I actually accomplish.
