Happy Valentine’s Day 2019

This year, for Valentine’s Day, I decided to make something for my wife rather than go out an buy a trinket. A few months ago, I had written her a poem which I posted here as a Minifigure Monday rhyme. I thought it would be nice for her to have that poem framed on her desk so that she can have a reminder of how much she means to me. So, I went out and I found another set of the Minifigures that I used in the post. I bought a shadowbox frame that could accommodate the Minifigures. Then, I made a background by painting some watercolor paper yellow, and stamping it with a painted LEGO® plate in red. I added a little scrapbook paper to accent the background, and a sticker of a LEGO® brick. As I mentioned, the poem was an original one that I wrote a while back, which was:

Contemplate a LEGO® Brick

Contemplate a LEGO® brick,
It will stick through thin and thick.
Plastic that will not degrade,
With bright colors that won’t fade.

I am like that LEGO® brick,
But it is to you I stick.
You and I will not degrade,
My love for you will not fade.

The end product for my wife’s Valentine’s gift this year.

So, yes, I gave my wife LEGO® for Valentine’s Day. But, I think she loved it. And, yes, I know I am a geek.

Until next time,
