      I have been very busy moving! I also live in Olney, but I'm from
      Charleston originally. I love making costumes and I love history. I
      have a friend back in NC where we lived that was big into SCA and I
      have wanted to join for awhile. I am a newbie, though, so be
      gentle. ;)
