This year’s A-to-Z Challenge has come and gone. I have to say that I am feeling a little sad about that. But, there is one last post to make before it is officially over: my 2018 Challenge reflection. Last year, after my first challenge, I felt a little relieved. Joining the challenge in my first year had been a spur of the moment decision, and I scrambled through many of the posts. I decided last summer that I would try the challenge again, and began stockpiling posts in September. It was hard to keep from posting many of my projects for so long because I was quite proud of them. I was positively chomping at the bit to get the challenge started this year since I was much more organized and ready. I only scrambled with two posts this year. The challenge seemed to just fly by, and I am a little sad to see it go.
My theme for the A-to-Z Challenge this year was “LEGO-fied”. I took pop-culture posters and covers, and recreated them using LEGO Minifigures. If anyone has just found their way here and wants to have a look, or for those who want another look, here are the LEGO-fied posters that I made:
If you would like to read more about the development and inspiration behind these posters, here are links to the individual posts:
- “A” is for Armageddon
- “B” is for Beautiful Trauma
- “C” is for Captain America
- “D” is for Deep Blue Sea
- “E” is for Episode I (Star Wars)
- “F” is for the Fast and the Furious
- “G” is for Game of Thrones
- “H” is for “Holy Alphabet, Batman!”
- “I” is for Imagine Dragons
- “J” is for Jagged Little Pill (Alanis Morissette)
- “K” is for Kill Bill
- “L” is for Life of Pi
- “M” is for Memoirs of a Geisha
- “N” is for Ninjago
- “O” is for the Others
- “P” is for Prince of Persia
- “Q” is for Queen Latifah
- “R” is for Rex… T. rex! (Jurassic Park)
- “S” is for Suicide Squad
- “T” is for That’s What the Water Made Me (Bon Jovi)
- “U” is for Underworld
- “V” is for Vacation… Permanent Vacation! (Aerosmith)
- “W” is for Wonder Woman
- “X” is for Xena – Warrior Princess
- “Y” is for Yoda
- “Z” is for Zorro
I suppose that my favorite posts were the more challenging ones to produce. My E, S, T, and V posts took me the longest, and I was quite proud of them. Judging based on views and likes across all the social media that I use, you guys liked “L” is for Life of Pi the most.
Despite being slightly down about the challenge ending, there is a silver lining. When I was brainstorming for this challenge, I came up with a lot of duplicate ideas for certain letters. So, who knows, maybe those will see the light of day in the coming weeks and months. Thanks for sharing this journey with me through the 2018 April A-to-Z Challenge, it has been a blast.
Until next time,

You did a fantastic job, and starting in September was all worth it – for us visitors ;-))) I’m sure it was much less stressful for yourself as well. I wish I had the discipline.
Congratulations and happy relaxing!
Congratulation on completing the challenge! What an awesome theme! I’m going to forward your collage to a friend of mine who’s also a Lego enthusiast.
Wow! Starting working at the challenge in September! You are so organised! I dream I were!
Thanks! I was organized this year… But last year was another story, lol. Thanks for stopping by, and forwarding my site to your friend!
