One week till Bricks by the Bay!


New Display for a New Year

As you’ve probably noticed. I’ve been a little MIA here on my blog recently. Well, as you can see from the photo, I’ve had a good reason. I’ve been making all of these earrings, necklaces and key chains for Bricks by the Bay.

I’m rolling out a lot of new designs and thanks to the Friends line (see all the pinks and pastels?), lots of new colors, that will be seen for the first time this month.

Not only did I make all the items you see listed, I made twice that much! My products will also be at BrickWorld Indy this weekend.

I even made new display racks, as my old ones were too small. Even with these new ones, I have to double up on some pegs or I just wouldn’t be able to fit it all. And yes, the display rack is LEGO too naturally. I mean why buy one when I have all these perfectly good LEGO elements I can make one out of? πŸ˜‰

Despite the hundreds (and I literally mean hundreds) of items I’ve already made I still have a few dozen or two to go. But the big push to get them all made, labeled and ready is easing off.

Of course I still have to finish the Art theme trophies, update my power point presentations I’ll be giving, and work on several other projects, but at least I’ve got a little less to do now. πŸ˜€

I plan on being at a lot of LEGO Cons and two Comicons this year. Its going to be pretty busy and a heck of a lot of fun! I am totally looking forward to all of it! πŸ™‚

    More importantly, why buy a display rack when it might not be exactly what you need the very next time that you need it? With a LEGO-built rack, you can modify it as needed. And sometimes what you need doesn’t actually exist. Before I moved across the state, I had an RF modulator hooked up to my TV, and it started overheating from sitting on top of a VCR, which in turn caused it to stop functioning properly until it could cool off again. So I built a little cradle for it that lifted it about 1.5″ off the surface of the VCR, which kept it from getting cooked and I never had that problem again. Finding something that I could have bought to serve in that function might have been impossible, very expensive, or never quite what I wanted. A dozen parts out of my collection were readily available, required almost no time to develop, and allowed me to make exactly what was needed and nothing more.

    Of course, sometimes the non-LEGO solution works best. I’d never use LEGO parts to build travel cases for my MOCs, where by my current count I’ve got at least 14 such cases filled with various items for purposes of both storage and transport.
