Summer Update

A brief run-down of amazing events: I finished my first year of grad-school, the Versailles Ball was magical, I did research at the national library in Paris, I presented a successful conference paper in England for the Costume Society, I buzzed around the UK with my daughter seeing new sights and doing research, I received conference travel grants from the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women as well as my university, and there are exciting opportunities developing for my PhD! I’m feeling very relieved, hopeful, thankful, inspired, and TIRED.

Added New Photos

Just a quick update to say that I added a handful of new photos to the gallery pages. Still lots more to come! I wish they were all “gallery” quality, but they still document my work.

New photo gallery

I’m learning how to add photos to my site and have managed to get a few into the Photo Gallery. I’d like to have some of my art as well as my finished costumes and embroidery work. Fortunately, the Etsy and Pinterest mini-galleries to the right update automatically when I add new items. I’ll keep working on the Photo Gallery, so check back later! 🙂
