Wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, archer, illuminatrix, amateur seamstress, needleworker, weaver, medieval enthusiast, voracious reader, musician, closet singer. A bunch of labels that try to describe me and only end up being labels after all. I am all these things and much, much more.
In the SCA, I am known as Elspeth. I play in the Lower Mainland and surrounding areas. I serve my local branch, my Principality and my Kingdom in the scribal arts and as a member of retinue when I am able. I am also Chamberlain and deputy chatelaine for my branch. I am deeply committed to building and maintaining the strength of our branch and encouraging others to step up and do the same. Our motto is "Our strength is our people" and I firmly believe that to realise that, we all need to step up and do our part.
Personally, I finally feel like I am coming into my own. I feel that with age comes wisdom and a stronger sense of self. I have earned every year I claim and in looking to the future, I welcome the rest of the journey.
I treasure my family and love that I get to do my dream job - stay at home mother to four intelligent, beautiful, amazing children. I cherish my children above all things and hope that I am preparing them to be loving, caring, responsible adults. With a dash of fun in the mix. Always the fun.
