I got so caught up working on making digital illustrated books that I didn’t do a Lego build today. I will work on a biggish one tonight. After all need to tie together the Elf Princess, the Orcs and the Wizard with his men right? We will see where it is going tonight.

Thanks for your patience!


Lego Kit Review: Friends: Heartlake Gift Delivery

Yup here is the other kit I built this weekend. This fun little kit comes with mini dolls of course and you get to build a delivery truck. Yup one more vehicle for my fleet. This was a very fast build for me.

While the truck is a full build and you have space to put the gift boxes that are brick built and filled with some item the store front is rather small. Now this is both a good and bad thing. As I have said before we are combining all the Friends builds we have into the City builds and our original mocs. It will make for a more interesting and diverse townscape for sure.

The images here show you what you get. If you like  fast and easy builds this s for you or if you want to make it part of a larger city good.

Lego kit review: Friends: Heartlake Pizzeria

I know it has been a bit since I posted. Between the connectivity issues, getting ready for my daughter’s visit and the visit itself and the Game expo yesterday I got way behind. I will do my best to get back into the swing of posting daily.

Now the hubby brought this kit home unexpectedly for me.  I really should have been doing other things but building a Friends kit is not too hard so I built this one and another up over the weekend.

As you can see from the pictures the pinks and blues have been toned down big time. We have sand colored bricks, red, white and green and of course white. since we found an OLD base plate in our clean up I used it for the base for this kit instead of the light lavender one it comes with.

In this kit you get two mini dolls. One boy and one girl and the hair on the boy can be easily used on other mini figs. You start out building the three wheeled delivery car which ads a nice little vehicle to the fleet I have. It is really pretty simple to build as it only has three wheels but you do get back doors that open which is cool and inside you have two pizza boxes!

The shop itself is fun and I can see how we will be working this into our city. There is a brick pizza oven and other stations you would expect in this type of shop. It was cool to get a whole package of blue dishes, forks, knives and cook wear. It made this a more finished place than you would expect.

All in all no a tough build. I mean I was pretty fuzzy headed from the heat at the expo and staying up way later than normal with my oldest child during her visit but I still built it in under a half hour. A good kit for sure for an evening with your kids or for yourself.

No lego today

Yup no lego mocs or kits this morning. So I thought why not just post up something else right? After all I draw, sculpt and many other things.


This Elf was from a long time ago. She was my fan fiction character for an Elfquest Holt from before sharing stories on the net. I don’t have those old stories any more but luckily I had scanned this one in ages ago.

Lego Kit Review: Ninjago: Spinjitsu Training

This is one of the starter kits for the newest wave of Ninjago kits. This is of course for the new movie that will be out next month.

Now As you can see a small kit but the small ones can have some fun things in them. You have two mini figs, a training dummy that bobs about, a few new pieces and even a printed piece.

Only took the hubby about fifteen minutes with interruptions to build this one but I can see this being a great kit for those visiting grandkids or nieces and nephews. Something they can build and play with and leave the adults alone, unless of course the adults want to play with it!
